Toshiba certainly isn't hurting for laptops big
these days, but it looks like it's nonetheless decided to mix things up a bit further with two new CULV models: the 13.3-inch MX/43 and 11.6-inch MX/33. Of course, both come with a few trade-offs to performance for that added portability, but you'll get a slightly better balance with the MX/43, which packs a Core 2 Duo SU9400 processor, 2GB of RAM (up to 8GB), a 250GB hard drive, a promised 10.5 hours of battery life, and Windows 7 Home Premium for an OS. The MX/33, on the other hand, dials things back with a 1.3GHz Celeron 743 processor and a smaller battery, among other similar specs, although you can get it in you choice of three different colors. No word on a release over here, but folks in Japan will be able to pick this one up on (you guessed it
) October 22nd.
