Toshiba Launches Funky Laptop for Kids

Toshiba's new Satellite L735D laptop isn't going to win any beauty contests, nor is it trying to. The slime green (or booger green, if you prefer that visual) accents are meant to appeal to kids, which is the target audience here. From a design standpoint, the L735D looks like the love child of a regular Satellite notebook and a LeapFrog, though decidedly more high tech than the latter.

Kids will probably love it though, and that's all that matters. Well, that the spec sheet. Here's what we know so far about the L735D:
  • 13.3-inch widescreen display with a 1300x708 resolution
  • AMD E-300 processor (1.3GHz)
  • 320GB Storage
  • Two USB ports
  • Built-in webcam
  • Wipeable keyboard
Nothing earth shattering, but totally respectable for a kid-oriented machine that's more powerful (and bigger) than a standard netbook. It also comes with a handful of apps, including Internet for Kids, Kidzui, and Lego Harry Potter.

Look for the L735D to ship in October starting at just under $500.
