Do you want to watch TV, play games, or buckle down and crunch through work? One of Toshiba's new Satellite P15 laptops should fit the bill: Both of the 8-pound portables feature Intel's 3.0GHz Pentium 4 processor with Hyper-Threading Technology, a 15.4-inch wide-aspect-ratio (1,280 by 800) display, and integrated 802.11g wireless connectivity, but one adds an external TV tuner and Microsoft's Windows XP Media Center Edition for watching and recording your favorite programs.
The Satellite P15-S420 ($1,899) is the Windows XP Home Edition model, with an 80GB hard disk, DVD±RW drive, and Nvidia's 32MB GeForce FX Go5100 graphics controller; the P15-S470 ($2,199) is the Media Center PC, with a faster 60GB hard disk, DVD-RW Multi drive, and 64MB GeForce FX Go5200 graphics. Each has 512MB of DDR memory; modem, Ethernet, IEEE 1394, and USB 2.0 ports as well as WiFi; and comes with Microsoft Works and OneNote.
