Toshiba has announced its latest Satellite P105 series desktop replacement notebooks featuring the Intel Core 2 Duo Processor and a new Onyx Blue Metallic color lid as well as external TV tuner on select models, offering consumers a wide selection of feature-rich notebooks in an attractive form factor. Designed for portable productivity and entertainment, the Satellite P105 series features the line's standard 17-inch diagonal widescreen TruBrite display with a 7.1-pound, 1.41-inch slim notebook chassis, and incorporates the latest Intel Centrino Duo mobile platform. Based on the new Intel Core Microarchitecture, the Intel Core 2 Duo Processor is designed to handle multiple tasks in less time while consuming less power and reducing fan noise and heat. In addition, all the notebooks now feature an Onyx Blue Metallic high-gloss lid as well as a high-gloss palm rest inside.

Incorporating the Intel Core 2 Duo Processor T5200 (1.60GHz, 2MB L2, 533MHz FSB), the Satellite P105-S6124 and the Satellite P105-S6134 feature USB external TV tuners for playing live TV from an antenna, cable or satellite set-top box.
