Toshiba has announced four new laptops. One will be an ultraportable model, while the other three are all Tablet PCs.

One of these, the Toshiba M700-3G13B, offers HSDPA wireless connectivity. Prices start at £999 ex VAT.

Each M700 is powered by a 45nm ‘Penryn’ Intel Core 2 Duo processor and features either Windows Vista Business or XP professional. The 12in digitised touch-sensitive display can either be controlled by fingertips or with the digitised pen that is also shipped with the laptop.

The M700 also comes with Microsoft Office OneNote 2007 for accurate handwriting recognition, Intel GMA graphics and a DVD SuperMulti optical drive.

The M700-13A features a 120GB hard disk drive, while the M700-139 offers 3GB memory as well as a 1.3Mp integrated webcam. The M700-3G13B also supports 3G HSDPA, which Toshiba claims will allow users to get the very best of mobile broadband connectivity while working on the move.
