    I don’t think you can expect anything better than Intel integrated graphics with CULV-based systems.

    Heavy —-
    Yuga any word if these CULVs will come to the Philippines? I only know the Acer Timeline, but I haven’t seen the others yet.

    @DJ – Thanks for the reply…

    I’m looking right now aat a Gateway LT3102i / LT3103i (11in. UMPC + ATI Radeonâ„¢ X1270)… Isn’t this a CULV? It’s hard to really know the differences between laptop categories these days… :D

    Anyway, if this Gateway is a CULV, wouldn’t the ATI Graphics be better than what the Toshiba laptop blogged here has?

    The 11.6 incher is the T115, the 13.3″ is T135

    So consumers will have to choose between CULV or Ion. I’m gonna go with Ion powered notebook because handle fullscreen flash HD and some 3D games.

    They are coming this October. No definite date though. Check out videos of the upcoming Satellite T100 Series and the new Qosmio X500 Corei7 gaming laptops at http://www.youtube.com/user/toshibalaptops

    @Pusang Kulog

    That’s not a CULV-based laptop because that has an AMD Athlon Neo processor, but yes, it should have much better graphics performance.

  14. Gelo says:

    It’s now available. Just saw it at Octagon Megamall. The Toshiba Portege T110-P110 comes in Nova Red or Black Fusion Finish, is preloaded with Microsoft Windows 7 Home Basic and sells for Php39,990.

  15. is this correct? Toshiba Latitude? as in copying Dell sub-branding? is it not Toshiba Satellite?
