Toshiba Intros ''Value'' Satellite Pro Notebook Models

Targeting the "back to school" shopping season, Toshiba announced two new Satellite Pro notebooks based on the Intel Calpella platform, the 15.6 inch Satellite Pro S500-131, and the 17.3 inch Satellite Pro L670-172. Despite the Satellite Pro series traditionally catering to the mobile performance segment, Toshiba seems to have adopted a "value" approach, with the two being priced at just 649 EUR and 749 EUR, respectively. The 17.3 inch L670-172 has an LED-backlit display with 1600 x 900 pixels resolution, and is driven by the Intel Core i3-350M dual-core processor running at 2.26 GHz, with 3 MB of cache. It is backed up by 4 GB of memory, a 320 GB hard drive, and DVD writer drive.

The 15.6 inch Satellite Pro S500-131 carried an LED-backlit screen with 1366 x 768 pixels resolution, the same Core i3-350M processor, but with 2 GB of memory. Both models make use of Intel's integrated graphics, are powered by Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, and offer connectivity that includes gigabit Ethernet, WiFi b/g/n, and battery life of up to 4 hours, but the 17.3 inch model also offers a multi-gesture trackpad and Bluetooth. Toshiba's new notebooks are available in Europe starting now.

Hang on, Toshiba to me has been targeted as being expensive but high quality, and this is a Satellite which is a businessy type laptop. Why are they appealing to the value sector? Why don't they badge it different to Satellite Pro, like Dell with the Studio, Inspiron and Latitude? Satellite Lite maybe? I don't know, I'm not in marketing.
