Toshiba Satellite Pro 490CDT


Outstanding performance

Aug, 1998

Product Specifications

Toshiba's Satellite series of notebook computers has long been known for delivering top-notch power at low prices. With the Satellite Pro 490XCDT, the price just went down, but the performance has remained the same. The Satellite Pro 490XCDT uses Intel's new mobile Pentium II processor. The expandability and convenient all-in-one design you've come to expect from a Toshiba Satellite notebook are here as well. How Toshiba is raising the bar in the notebook mid-range? By packing a Pentium II processor into Satellite Pro 490 series - first kid in its class to have one. But this series sets itself apart in other arenas, too. Not surprising, considering both the 490CDT and the 490XCDT come with a 4.1 billion byte hard disk, 32-160 MB EDO RAM and SelectBay modular technology. The Satellite is value-packed mobile computing at its best. If what you need is a solid notebook PC for all your general-purpose uses at a great price, consider Toshiba's Satellite 490 an excellent choice.
