Toshiba unveils 10in netbook range

£400 netbook launches in Japan this week

Toshiba has unveiled a new range of netbooks that feature 10in screens.

The UX series netbooks utilise Intel's N280 Atom chip that began shipping in February, and come with 1GB of memory and a 160GB hard disk drive.

The display is a 10.1in LCD with 1,024x600 pixel resolution. Toshiba's previous Atom-based machine, the NB100, sported a similar resolution but on an 8.9in LCD. Many netbook vendors have been switching to the larger displays as consumers prefer them.

Battery life has also been extended in the new machines. Toshiba said the standard battery should last up to about 4 hours, compared with 2.9 hours for the NB100.

Despite its larger screen the new model is smaller, at 263x192x31mm and weighs between 1.2 and 1.3Kg depending on the configuration.

The UX series netbooks will be launched in Japan this week, although precise international launch dates have not been decided, said Toshiba. Prices are expected to start from £400.
