Toshiba’s NB100: standard SCC spec

Toshiba claimed at battery life of just shy of four hours. It didn’t state a battery capacity, but the pics suggest we’re looking at a big, six-cell pack.

NB100 comes in three different colours: “Cosmic Black”, “Champagne Gold” and “Bright Silver”. Don’t fancy Linux? Then pick the other OS option, Windows XP.

The NB100 goes on sale next month and Toshiba’s now saying prices will start at £260 (or about $472), and the laptops will be on shelves this October.
