Several additional innovative features help further set the Satellite laptop PCs series apart, including a built-in FM Tuner, eSATA Port, Sleep-and-Charge USB Ports(4) and Face Recognition technology, with select models sporting a 64-bit OS computing option and Toshiba’s REGZA LINK™ (HDMI-CEC) technology, which empowers users with instant and automated device configuration and the ability to control linked HDMI-CEC enabled devices, such as Toshiba’s REGZA™ HDTVs and a Satellite laptop, with a single remote.

The new Satellite laptop PCs have a starting price of $749.99(5), and will be available in early August as a configuration option directly from Toshiba at www.toshibadirect.com. Detailed product specifications and information can be found at www.explore.toshiba.com/satellite.
