Slimmer Footprint, Lighter Weight, and 5.5 Hours of Battery Life
Toshiba’s Digital Products Division (DPD), a division of Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc., today unveiled its new 14.1-inch Satellite E105 laptop, exclusively available at Best Buy stores nationwide.
The laptop offers a sleek and stylish new design and unique features directly inspired by Best Buy customer feedback and Toshiba market research. The companies worked together as part of Best Buy’s Blue Label series, to meet the specific requests for what consumers want from their consumer electronic devices.
In a survey conducted by Best Buy to find what its customers want in their “ideal laptop,” it was discovered that consumers wished most for longer battery life, a thin and lightweight design, a superb warranty, and the ability to see the keyboard in poor lighting conditions like on an airplane or in the family room during movie night. This survey helped validate the research that Toshiba frequently conducts to help ensure that it best serves the desires of consumers.
To meet these desires the Satellite E105 offers up to 5.5 hours of battery life, which exceeds what other standard equipped 14.1-inch laptops are traditionally capable. Weighing less than 5 pounds, the Satellite E105 is lighter than most in its class, and at only 1.2-inches thin, is slimmer too. Also, by incorporating an intuitive backlit keyboard users have a creative solution for working in a variety of low light conditions. Each laptop comes with a standard two-year Toshiba international limited warranty, 30 days of free Geek Squad support, and a 15-month Norton Anti Virus subscription to ensure dependable long-term system performance.
Through an emphasis on aesthetics, the Satellite E105 flaunts a sophisticated Mocha color pattern with the luster of Toshiba’s Fusion finish. The laptop’s detail-orientated design extends to its undercarriage, which is made of a single-piece bottom panel and meticulously accented rubber feet. Feather-Touch LED multimedia control buttons are included to further contribute to the Satellite E105’s modern design. The collective features and design elements of the Satellite E105 help create a finished and modern appeal.
“Toshiba’s aim is to produce high quality laptops with features that consumers look for, and our combined effort with Best Buy has helped us further realize this goal,” said Carl Pinto, vice president of product development, Digital Products Division, Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc. “The Satellite E105 is a special laptop, and we are delighted with the result and the opportunity to bring this impressive machine to market.”
The Satellite E105 is loaded with Windows Vista 64-bit Home Premium, 4GB of RAM and an Intel Core 2 mobile processor, accommodating users who require maximum performance for strenuous processing hungry activities, including multimedia activities such as watching movies, streaming online video and music.
The Satellite E105 has achieved a Silver status through the Green Electronic Council’s Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool (EPEAT), which reduces the amount of harmful e-waste commonly found within consumer electronic products.
With a starting price of $1,249.99, the Satellite E105 is available Best Buy retail stores nationwide or online at www.bestbuy.com. Detailed product information is available at www.explore.toshiba.com/E105.
