Libretto gets ethernet inside

Toshiba wires the Libretto for broadband

Toshiba has upgraded its Libretto subnotebook computer by building in an ethernet local area network adapter to make it easier to connect to broadband networks.

The network adapter is compatible with both 10Base-T ethernet and 100Base-TX fast ethernet and was added to the machine because of the increasing use of broadband services in Japanese homes. Many of these services require an ethernet connection between the computer and modem.

The latest Libretto went on sale in Japan over the weekend. It uses a Transmeta Crusoe TM5600 600MHz processor. Other features are also similar to the model introduced in May, including the 10in Polysilicon TFT (thin film transistor) display with a resolution of 1,280x600, 128MB memory and a 10GB hard drive.

It's going to be available in two versions: the L2/060 TNML comes with Windows Me installed while the L2/060 TN2L runs Windows 2000 Professional.
