It's just a notebook
, right? Well, not quite. Too many notebooks are too
hard to distinguish these days, but Toshiba
is doing a great job of
making their newest notebook stand out. The Dynabook Qosmio T750 is a
very unique machine. The internal specifications, while new, aren't
totally spectacular, but the finish on the top lid is most definitely
one for the books. The blue lid is only blue when looking at it from a
certain angle. If you look at it from another angle, it shows a
shimmering metallic blue/green, and if you look at it from yet another
angle, it'll fade to purple.
This kind of color-changing magic isn't totally new. This has been
applied to cars and other electronics before, but it's certainly unusual
for a laptop to have it. The technique itself is also rather unique. It
doesn't use any metal at all, and Toshiba is calling the process
"Picasus." There's even a fingerprint-proof coating to keep it looking
great even when your fascinated co-workers reach over and touch it.
As for the internals, there's a 2.66GHz Core i5-480M, 4GB of DDR3
memory, a 750GB hard drive, 15.6" display (1366x768 screen resolution),
H/K speakers, 802.11n Wi-Fi, Gigabit Ethernet, an HDMI port, USB 2.0 and
an eSATA socket. As of now, the machine only has a release scheduled
for Japan, but with this crazy lid, we wouldn't be surprised if it comes
to other markets in the near future.
