I received an e-mail this afternoon about a new Toshiba Satellite U305 that is Penryn-based – it’s the U305-S2816. Poking around the web, a few sites are mentioning it, including PR Inside and Notebook Review.
It’s available for pre-order through Amazon for $1350 , as well as other outlets, however it has not shown up on Toshiba’s site. The U305-S2816 has the U305’s standard 13.3″ widescreen display. The Intel Penryn Core 2 Duo CPU in the S2816 is the T8100 running at 2.1GHz, with 3MB L2 cache and a 800MHz Front Side Bus. It’s a 45nm design with a TDP of 35W. This model comes with a 250GB hard drive and 2GB of memory.
