Best Buy and Toshiba
have always shared special kind of love with their Blue Label laptops
, and now both are continuing that partnership to bring you the next one of those systems -- the Satellite E305. Like the previous E205 version
, the system packs all the latest technology from Intel, including a new Sandy Bridge Core i5 processor
and WiDi 2.0
, which as you may know by now supports full 1080p video. And that's just the tip of the iceberg, Tosh has equipped the system with a hybrid hard drive system -- it pairs a 5GB flash drive for the OS and a 7200RPM hard drive. It also has a USB 3.0 port and Blu-ray drive. It pretty much has everything you've ever wanted except say for discrete graphics, but has
drastically revamped the 5-pound rig with a alumnium finish, backlit keyboard, and new ClickPad. It's all great news until you realize that it won't actually hit those Best Buy shelves until the Spring. Sadly no word on pricing either, but hit the break for some nice hands-on shots.
