Toshiba's Dynabook Satellite K series and J60 laptops: droppable, floppable


If you fancy yourself a bit of an oaf then check this new business laptop from Toshiba. Said to withstand both drips and drops, the Dynabook Satellite K15 features a spill-proof keyboard, shock protected disk, and a reinforced, chip resistant 6.6-pound kit said to keep your data (and lease) safe from drops at up to 27.5-inches. Great and all, if you possess the freakish tendency to work at the kiddy table. Nevertheless, the K15 packs in a 15.4-inch, 1280 x 800 LCD, up to a 2.0GHz Core Duo T2500, 2GB memory, a rather wimpy 40GB (max) of 5400RPM disk, CD/DVD drive, 802.11a/b/g WiFi, and integrated Intel 945GM Express graphics. The K10 brings much of the same but with Intel's Celeron M processor and ATI's RADEON XPRESS 200M graphics thumping away at the heart. Additionally, the Satellite J60 series was announced which also pulls the Core Duo procs but with a 15-inch, 1400x1050 display, fingerprint reader, up to 2GB RAM, and that same, anemic 40GB disk listed amongst the specs. And get this, the J60s also feature a serial port, parallel port, PS/2 connector, and even a 3.5-inch floppy disk drive which, according to the machine translation, is built-in -- Hoozah! Expect a fully-spec'd K15, K10, and J60 to snag about ¥249,900 ($2,189), ¥174,300 ($1,527), and ¥268,800 ($2,354), respectively, when these drop in Japan next week. Click on for a snap of the J60 with floppy, 'cause just like a highway pile-up you know you can't look away.
