Toshiba Dynabook SS RX2 Announced

Toshiba Dynabook SS RX2 The sequel to the 12.1″ Toshiba Dynabook SS RX1 has been announced today. The RX1 is similar to the Toshiba Portege R500 which is available in North America and elsewhere.

It’s the Toshiba Dynabook SS RX2, and it appears to maintain the same 12.1″ LED-backlit display as the RX1, while seeing a few upgrades. It also has a similar Magnesium Alloy chassis and spill-resistant keyboard.

This time around, it’s powered by the Intel Core 2 Duo Ultra Low Voltage (ULV) SU9300 / U9300 (1.2GHz), and the storage options have been upgraded to either a 160GB mechanical SATA HDD, or a 128GB Solid State Drive (SSD). You can also have up to 3GB of RAM now. Battery life can hit up to 12.5 hours depending on options and battery.

This could mean that a Toshiba Portege R600 (or whatever Toshiba chooses to call it) could be around the corner for North American markets.
