Well, well, well, if it isn't Toshiba Tuesday. Yes, we've got a ton of new laptops to tell you about, so let's get started. First up are updates to the U205 "ultra-portable" line (pictured) -- the U205-S5034 (estimated at $1,300) sports a swanky 1.6 GHz Core 2 Duo T5200 proc, 1GB of RAM, a 100GB hard drive, whereas its older bro, the -S5044 (estimated at $1,600) comes with a 2.0 GHz Core 2 Duo T7200 chip, 2GB of RAM, and a 100GB hard drive. Both come with a double-layer DVD burner, WiFi, and the ever-popular biometric fingerprint reader. Next up is the latest model in Toshi's M115 line: the M115-S3144, which includes 2GB of RAM, a 120GB hard drive, a double layer DVD burner, WiFi, four USB ports, FireWire, a 5-in-1 card reader, VGA and S-Video out and should hit the streets for an estimated $1,250. Finally, Toshiba has new upgrades to the P105 line, which include the -S6134, -S6124, -S6114 and -S6104 models. The whole line packs the Merom love, a hefty 17-inch screen, dual-layer DVD burner, 4 USB ports, VGA and S-Video out, and FireWire. Individually the models differ in RAM configurations, hard drive capacities, and some even have USB TV tuners so you can watch the local news from your neighborhood-friendly WiFi café. As you might expect, prices similarly range from $1250 to $1550. Now all of this begs the question: Toshiba, can we expect the same from you on a future Tuesday?
