Take it from Toshiba. Unexplained phenomena abound. But here's
one phenomenon that we can explain: the new Portégé
660CDT. And every Intelligent Being will be astounded by what's on
offer: An integrated 10-speed slim-CD ROM drive that's swappable with
a diskette drive or additional lithium-ion battery. All packed into
a super-light subnotebook that weighs just 2.5 kg. It turns multimedia
into an encounter of the highly mobile kind. So do not be afraid Earthlings
- you are not alone.
would never have believed it if we hadn't built it ourselves
Portégé 660CDT, from the planet Earth's leading mobile
PC manufacturer, a notebook that's strictly for higher life forms.
X File No 1: a 10-speed CD-ROM drive. Believe it or not, it transmits
at a speed of 1650 KB per second: so it's not only the smallest
but also the fastest currently available on any Earthling notebook.
Thanks to the modular design, it can be swapped over with the diskette
drive in a little bit more than a nano-second.
File No. 2: a 150 MHz Intel Pentium processor with a 256 KB second-level
cache, the fastest (we make no apologies for the repetition!) that's
available on a notebook. So it's all fitted out for the future,
to say nothing of the present. What's more, there's a 1.4 billion
byte hard disk drive and 16 MB EDO RAM, expandable to 80 MB. Most
desktops don't have as much!
File No. 3: a removable lithium-ion battery that's got enough juice
to last for 3.5 hours before recharging. Uncanny isn't it?
the rest of the performance package is enough to make a Vulcan's
ears wiggle in appreciation: an 11.3" colour screen with a
resolution of 800 x 600 for razor sharp images, the Zoomed-Video
(ZV) port for full-motion video, or even video-conferencing and
a PCI bus for advanced multimedia applications.
communication with other worlds, there's a CardBus (for the new
generation of high performance PC Cards such as the 100 Mbps Ethernet
Card) and a built-in 28.8 Kbps modem with integrated telephony (including
fax and answering functions). And the Portégé 660CDT
will slip comfortably into your survival suit: it's just 26.3 x
21.0 x 4.9 cm and weighs a mere 2.5 kg. So Time Travellers, why
not beam on down to your nearest Toshiba dealer. There is something
out there, waiting for you!
