Toshiba and Harmon/Kardon team up for NB520 notebook

Laptops / Notebooks, Tech Digest news

Toshiba have just outed their latest notebook range, with the NB520 model sitting at the top of the pile. With a dual-core chip and quality audio abilities courtesy of Harmon/Kardon, it’s looking pretty nifty.

A 10.1 inch notebook with TruBrite LED backlit screen running at a 1024 x 600 resolution, its sweet sonics come from integrated Harmon Kardon speakers with Dolby Advanced Audio tech. Despite beefy sound, it remains svelte, measuring 17mm at its slimmest point and weighing just 1.32KG.

Featuring an Intel Atom N550 processor under the hood and 1GB or DDR3 RAM, the NB520 should play nicely with reasonably intensive multi-media files and software. There’s a 250GB HDD for storing your files on, with Windows 7 Starter OS orchestrating the show.

Connectivity comes from Wi-Fi and bluetooth 2.1 support, while there’s also a VGA webcam and multi-touch touchpad built in.

This one will hit shops in January, with prices yet to be announced.
