The new laptops also mark the start of Toshiba's strategic relationship with audio expert Skullcandy, adding more robust sound capabilities for greater overall value.

"Our 2014 Satellite C and L Series laptops deliver stronger price-to-performance in the entry-level and mainstream categories, especially as the market moves toward more aggressive pricing," said Carl Pinto, vice president of marketing, Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc., Digital Products Division. "We focused on reinvigorating these product lines by infusing more value than one would typically expect at these prices with slimmer, more modern designs, branded audio, quality keyboards and touchscreen options."

Equipped with generous storage and essential ports, including HDMI and a USB 3.0 port, the Satellite L Series are affordable everyday 'go-to' laptops for consumers looking for a full-featured PC that allows them to tackle a range of everyday tasks, from work to play. The laptops come dressed in Toshiba's popular Fusion Finish in a trendy modern gold color and feature Toshiba's new TruType keyboard, which blends a frameless design with contoured keys for a more comfortable typing experience. A sophisticated metal mesh slit speaker grill houses a pair of speakers tuned to Skullcandy audio specs rounds out the new design.

Supreme Sound by Skullcandy
To enhance the sound capabilities of both the Satellite L and C series, Toshiba turned to the audiophiles at Skullcandy to provide a richer sound experience more commonly heard on more expensive laptops. To achieve clearer, more natural sound, Toshiba and Skullcandy, along with DTS, aligned to tune the built-in speakers to Skullcandy's audio spec, as well as integrate a custom sound profile with optimized settings for Skullcandy headphones and earbuds. To alert consumers to the audio advantage, Satellite C and L Series laptops now feature Skullcandy branding.

"Toshiba is a recognized leader in personal electronics with a strong consumer following around the world," said Brent Wilkins, vice president, Global Business Development of Skullcandy.

Finally were seeing Toshiba, Lenovo, HP, Dell and Samsung etc. Give options for AMD alongside Intel. When it comes to discreet GPU cards, it still seems to be majority Nvidia at the moment but not on as many laptops as it used to be, as most companies now just use Intel and AMD APU`s.

Am hoping to see a good Intel CPU and AMD GPU combo for my next upgrade.
