Toshiba Announces NB550D, the Latest Edition to Its Netbook Family

Toshiba’s latest addition features HD Internet Technology from AMD and Harman Kardon speakers

Toshiba’s Singapore Computer Systems Division (CSD), today announced the latest addition to its netbook family; the Toshiba NB550D. The NB550D, powered by HD Internet Technology from AMD, offers an advanced multimedia experience with premium sound quality through Harman Kardon stereo speakers. The NB550D will be available during the first quarter of 2011 throughout the South and South East Asia regions.

Vivid sound for high quality videos

The Toshiba NB550D allows users to enjoy music and video in superb quality, without the need for external speakers. The powerful harman/kardon stereo speakers with 2 Watts output each together with Dolby Advanced Audio give the high definition videos (720p) and songs the stunning sound they deserve – with vibrant basses, crystal clear trebles and a powerful volume. Debuting the new HD Internet Technology from AMD platform, the Toshiba NB550D provides an ultimate multimedia experience. The latest AMD Dual Core Processor C-50 with AMD Radeon HD 6250 Graphics enables the netbook to display sharp images and smooth HD video playback with rich and vivid colors.

Streaming HD videos to TVs or projectors

Via its HDMI interface, the Toshiba NB550D is able to stream videos in high definition quality directly to a TV or a projector to display video on a big screen. The Toshiba Sleep & Music feature allows users to enjoy music stored on an MP3 player through the netbook’s speakers when connected to the microphone port; even when the netbook is turned off.

Subtle looks in five fashionable colours

The Toshiba NB550D comes in a choice of five fresh colors - Warm Brown, Joyful Blue, Striking Lime Green, Daring Sunlight Copper, and Sophisticated Turquoise. Shiny metallic reflections and engraved dot patterns provide a cool and fashionable subtle look. With its soft rubber finish, the NB550D series appeals to the senses, while creating a steady hand grip on both the cover and the palm rest.

Easy Connectivity and Usability

The NB550D series features 3 USB ports, integrated webcam, and Bluetooth V3.0 High Speed which offered up to 8x faster data transfer. It also comes with USB Sleep-and-Charge feature whereby users can charge their electronic devices without turning the PC On.

Toshiba’s exclusive value-added software tools like the Toshiba Reel Time and Toshiba Bulletin Board are also pre-installed in the NB550D series. These interfaces help users to locate recent files easily and the latter allows them to customize and manage their daily activities. To top it off, it features Power-Saving Eco-Utility software which helps to conserve our environment by lowering power consumption and giving the netbook a longer battery life.
