“We focus on two areas with our Toshiba netbooks: Firstly, we want to ensure a high range of functionality by providing great connectivity. Secondly, we aim to define a new class of multimedia netbooks by providing a premium audio experience”, commented Andy Bass, Vice President Sales and Marketing, Toshiba Europe GmbH. He continued, “The Toshiba NB510 is an entry-level model, but its dual-core processors offer excellent performance. Full size USB ports and HDMI connector make it simple to connect to other devices to share, view and move content and the Toshiba NB520 delivers sound quality one would not normally expect from a netbook thanks to the combination of Dolby Advanced Audio and integrated Harman Kardon stereo speakers.”
