Toshiba adds Penryn to U305 thin-and-light laptops


Toshiba’s Satellite U305 line gets a bump with the recent addition of the Satellite U305-S2816, which features the new Intel Core 2 Duo T8100 processor (Penryn). The S2816 starts at $1,349.99 and comes with 2GB of RAM, 250GB hard drive, 13.3-inch 1280×800 widescreen display, DVD SuperMulti drive, and weighs in at 4.54 pounds.

I couldn’t find a battery life spec (except that it’s a 7800mAh lithium ion battery), which is odd and might point to the fact that long battery life isn’t a key feature of this machine. If I were buying this laptop, that’d probably be the key factor for me. It’s just light enough to be toted around all day but if you’ve gotta bring the power brick with you, that might be a deal breaker.
