09 Jan

Tricom – The exclusive distributor of Toshiba Notebook Computers in the Philippines and Toshiba’s Computer Systems Division (CSD), a division of Toshiba Singapore Pte Ltd, unveiled its new advanced entertainment machine, the Qosmio F60. Redesigned from the bottom up to deliver the ultimate high definition experience in a package that‘s slimmer and more stylish than ever before, the new Qosmio F60 is the smartest-ever mobile entertainer designed to turn heads and blow minds wherever it goes.

Cementing Qosmio as a leading class entertainment Notebook PC, this new machine comes with Intel®’s new Core™ i5 and i3 processors, NVIDIA® GeForce® graphics processor, Blu-ray Disc™ 6x Rewriteable Drive, Toshiba Resolution+ and integrated Harman Kardon speakers for sheer entertainment pleasure. All these wrapped in a beautiful Brilliant Red cover, stylish grey interior and a speaker grille that runs just above its keyboard.

Slim looks enter the entertainment class
“Slim design is no longer the exclusive domain of ultraportable laptops – it is now available in entertainment class Notebook PCs too,” says Ms. Wong Wai Meng, Senior Manager of Product Marketing, Toshiba’s Computer Systems Division. “Not only does the Qosmio F60 pack a punch with its powerful multimedia features, it’s also surprisingly slim and sleek at just 29.1mm at its thinnest point, and weighs only 2.7 kg.” According to Marketing Officer of Tricom Ms. Juno Limjap, these units will be available in the market very soon.

Premium multimedia functionality
The Qosmio F60 really stands out from the crowd – not only in its design but also in its performance. Watch movies or play games on its brilliant 15.6” Clear SuperView HD display with LED backlighting powered by NVIDIA® GeForce® GT330M graphics processor with 1GB VRAM. Movie fanatics can enjoy their favorite HD movie with a Blu-ray Disc™ rewritable drive* that also supports DVD media or a DVD-SuperMulti +-R DL; and audiophiles will love its high end Harman Kardon® stereo speakers providing vibrant audio.

Toshiba Resolution+ Technology
Resolution+ is a super-resolution algorithm solution developed by Toshiba to upconvert videos and content in general with standard definition quality to near high definition level – no matter whether the video/content comes from a DVD in the DVD-SuperMulti drive or Blu-ray Disc™ rewritable drive.

Unlike conventional upconversion processes that simply upscale the image, Resolution+ downscales the upconverted image for comparison with the original one, and improves and enhances image quality before upscaling again to near high definition quality.

The Qosmio F60 is also designed with usability in mind. It sports a comfortable full keyboard with a numeric 10-key pad and backlit feather touch buttons that offer instant access often used features such as playback and volume controls, mute, wireless LAN on/off, Power Saving Eco Utility and also includes a user programmable shortcut. An intuitive Multi TouchPad with Gesture Support enables greater flexibility to browse and control what’s happening on-screen with gesture-commands, such as two-finger pinch, swipe, rotate and scroll.

For quick and convenient login, the Qosmio F60 comes with SmartFace™ Face Recognition software, while Toshiba ConfigFree™ utility facilitates wireless network configuration and online access via the embedded WLAN interface or via Bluetooth.

Toshiba Value-Add Software
The Qosmio F60 includes unique applications designed to increase personal productivity in a unique way:
• Toshiba Bulletin Board™—Gives users fast access to day-to-day activities, tasks and projects in a simple and visual way. Bulletin Board makes organizing disparately stored files easier with the ability to drag and drop links, documents, photos, videos and applications into one place. Customize and organize the board by moving, rotating and resizing using gestures to fit personalized style. Bulletin Board also includes several built-in gadgets such as labels, calendars, a clock and a to-do list.
• Toshiba ReelTime™—Helps users easily and quickly find files based on when they were opened with a simple visual history. With the flick of a finger, quickly scroll through automatically generated previews of documents, spreadsheets, presentations and more, filter by file type or use the calendar to go back weeks or months.

Sustainable and environment friendly
As a responsible global corporate citizen, Toshiba ensures that all laptops are RoHS-compliant, effectively reducing the environmental impact by restricting the use of lead, mercury and certain other hazardous substances. Additionally, the Toshiba Power Saving Eco Utility, accessible via a dedicated button, helps to reduce power consumption. It displays current power consumption and the power savings achieved by activating Eco Mode in Watts or translated into CO2 emissions.

Toshiba remains committed to providing users around the world with innovative notebook PCs that bring new capabilities and heightened convenience, Toshiba also seeks to contribute to lower CO2 from the home by developing notebook PCs that use less energy than desktop PCs. Use of Toshiba notebook PCs will contribute to lower CO2 emission from the home by approximately 80g per day1, or almost 30kg per year2. This is half the level of CO2 emissions from desktop PCs.
