Toshiba was one of the first PC vendors out of the gate with a working Windows Vista system--the attractive but expensive Portege R400. Now the company is rolling out Microsoft's new operating system to its most popular laptops, the 17-inch Satellite P105 and the 12.1-inch Satellite U205.
More interesting than that is a newly announced model, the Satellite A135. It's a 15.4-inch multimedia laptop with a feature rarely found on even the biggest desktop replacements--dual hard drives. Why would you want two hard drives? A RAID setup for duplicating and protecting your data is always a good idea.
The $1,499 system, with two 120GB hard drives, will be available on February 20 (single hard drive versions of the A135 are hitting the market January 30).
