Toshiba's new SS M40 and Satellite J63 laptops keep it basic


Toshiba seems to be on a serious roll as of late, at least in the world of laptops. Just following the launch of the Dynabook SS RX1 and a whole slew of new Qosmios and Satellites, the company is delivering two fresh, middle-of-the-road models (at least on Japanese shores). Both new laptops boast wildly predictable configurations, consisting of an 80GB or 120GB HDD, up to 4GB of RAM, an ATI Radeon Xpress 200M graphics chipset, and 802.11a/b/g -- with the 13.3-inch SS M40 rocking a Celeron 540 or Core 2 Duo T7100 processor (at 1.8GHz or 1.86GHz, respectively), while the 15-inch J63 sports a 1.73GHz Celeron M530. In Japan, the SS M40 ranges in price from around $1531 to $1789 while the J63 sells for $1496 to $1651. No word, however, on when or if these puppies will be making it Stateside.
