Toshiba wires the Libretto for broadband

Toshiba Corp. has upgraded its Libretto mini-notebook computer by building in an Ethernet local area network adapter to make it easier to connect to broadband networks.

The network adapter is compatible with both 10Base-T Ethernet and 100Base-TX Fast Ethernet and was added to the machine because of the increasing use of broadband services in Japanese homes. Many of these services require an Ethernet connection between the computer and modem.

The new machine, which went on sale in Japan over the weekend, uses a Transmeta Corp. Crusoe TM5600 600MHz processor -- first introduced to the Libretto range in May. Other features are also similar to the model introduced in May, including the 10-inch Polysilicon TFT (thin film transistor) SXGA display with a resolution of 1,280 by 600 pixels; 128M bytes of memory; and a 10G-byte hard disk drive. [See "Toshiba to introduce Crusoe-based Libretto," May 7.]The notebook is available in two versions. The L2/060 TNML comes with Windows ME installed and sells for around 139,800 yen (US$1,145), while the L2/060 TN2L runs Windows 2000 Professional and sells for 149,800 yen.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
