CES 2013: Toshiba refresh their computer line up!

   Toshiba didn't want to be left out of the refresh round up and they've published their press release with all the updates which they are bringing to their laptops and All-In-Ones!

   The most interesting update is to the high-end Satellite P series; these devices will receive a lovely new touchscreen for the 14-inch model and if you go for the 17.3" beast then you can have a 1080p display too!  Toshiba also revamped the LX815 and LX835 all-in-ones and all of the Satellite C, L and S series laptops, but they weren't specific on any of the changes which will be happening here, but hopefully we'll hear something more specific soon!

   We expect the products to ship in February because there's nothing dramatically new here!

Toshiba Qosmio X875.
   We did however get news about their Qosmio X875 laptop. This is a 17.3" monster and you can pick one up in February with hybrid storage options. So you can have a 1TB hard disk, as well as 8GB of on-board NAND flash memory which Toshiba wants to use as a cache and the theory is that this will reduce applictaion loading times.

   Other than that the Qosmio remains unchanged; you can have the Intel Core i7,  up to 32GB of RAM and that 1080p 17.3" display. Aside from that you can have Nvidia’s GeForce GTC 630M, and if you so desire you can go for a stereoscopic 3D option. The version of this laptop with hybrid storage will be available in the United States from February, priced at around $1625 or £1,000, there's no word on when this is coming to the UK.
