Toshiba Satellite P25Hot on the heels of the Apple PowerBook 17-inch is the new Toshiba Satellite P25, the first Windows-based notebook computer to offer a 17-inch wide screen display – making them the second computer manufacturer to achieve this feat.
According to ZDNet/CNet:

Toshiba is offering a much wider view with its newest Satellite notebook PC.
The company on Tuesday launched a new Satellite P25 with a 17-inch, wide-angle display, the largest screen it has offered to date.
The P25, which will start at $2,099, is the first Windows notebook from a brand-name manufacturer to come with a 17-inch wide-angle display. Apple Computer was first to reach the 17-inch mark earlier this year with its big-screen PowerBook.
Toshiba said it designed the P25 as a replacement for a desktop PC. Along with its larger display, the notebook includes a DVD burner and a 2.8GHz Pentium 4 processor with hyperthreading technology. It also sports 512MB of RAM, a 60GB hard drive, an Nvidia GeForce FX Go5200 graphics card and built-in 802.11b wireless networking.

If it is any consolation, the screen resolution on the new Satellite P25 is only 1400 by 900 versus the PowerBook G4 17’s 1440 by 900. :)
