We feel for engineers who have to build budget machines. After all, with a limited component budget, do you splash out on a long battery or a better keyboard? Toshiba's Satellite U845 was designed to navigate those pitfalls, doing \"just enough\" to combine a reasonable battery life with decent perf

Remember that glasses-free 3D Qosmio F750 (aka F755 in the US) gaming laptop we saw last year?

It might not be obvious this early on in CES week, so forgive us for dropping a spoiler: you're going to see lots -- and we mean lots -- of 14-inch Ultrabooks. Big-screened things, some of them making room for optical drives and discrete graphics -- the sorts of systems we'd sooner call thin-and-

Toshiba's 3D monocle may have been a joke, but what you're looking at above is not. It's one of the latest additions to its 3D Satellite lineup, now growing to include the P770 and P775 3D. Both include massive 18.4-inch displays that clock in at 120Hz, enabling use of NVIDIA active-shutter glasses

Looks like Toshiba's dipping its toes a little bit deeper into that pool known as WiMAX-ready laptops. In addition to the previously-announced Satellite U405, we've now got a quartet of older models with a new 4G flair: Satellite E205, M645 and A665, and Protege R705. All have prices starting betwe
