Toshiba Satellite P100-ST9742 gaming notebook

Toshiba SatelliteBecause gaming should not be tethered to a heavy PC casing and a power cord. Toshiba announces the latest in their Satellite P100 family of notebooks optimized for teh pwnage games – the P100-ST9742 (bless its Intel Core 2 Duo heart).

Its significant upgrade from the last batch of P100s we featured is its 2.0 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo. It’s still the same 17-inch display, 7.1-pound package as the P100-ST9012, -ST9412 and ST9612, packing a 512MB GDDR3 GeForce Go 7900GTX, 2GB DDR SDRAM memory, and a 100GB HDD to power your mobile gaming (no, not the one on your mobile phone).

You will be glad to know that this latest Toshiba gaming notebook also packs Bluetooth v2.0 to communicate with Bluetooth-enabled gaming accessories (like a PS3 SIXAXIS perhaps? :P), and 802.11a/b/g-compliant Wireless LAN so you can really reach out and pwn someone. Its other features include:

  • DVD R/W drive
  • 5-in-1 bridge media adapter for easy file sharing and downloads;
  • built-in harman/kardon stereo speakers for a rich audio experience;
  • Toshiba’s in-house TruBrite technology from for a crisp, clear display;
  • Finger Print Reader, Password Security, Security Cable Lock Slot, Hot Key Security, because it’s your preciiioussss…
  • Windows XP Pro, and it’s also Vista-ready.

Its 2.6-hour battery life could be a bit worrisome if you’re the type who plays extended, mind-numbing gut-killing marathon gaming sessions (anything longer than 2.6 hours), so you might still need that power cord. The price of power-packed packable gaming? US$ 2,899. Perhaps some writer here at QJ has a spare kidney to sell…
