Toshiba Satellite A300 and P300 notebooks

The A300 is a 15.4" notebook that now comes with your choice of Penryn or AMD dual core chips. You can choose between the 45nm Intel Penryn chip or an AMD TL-60 Turion processor.

Other than that it has an aluminum casing, black buttons, a 1.3MP webcam, built in mic, stereo loud speakers, and a fingerprint scanner all built in, it doesn't look too bad as far as laptops go either. The two Intel chips you get to choose from are the Core 2 Duo T5550 or the T8100 (I believe the 5550 is a Merom chip, whereas the 8100 is the Penryn chip).

It comes with 2GB of RAM, your choice of a 160 or 250 gigabyte HDD and with the Peynryn chip, a base price of $1481, with the AMD chip, $1184. There aren't any details on the P300, but there are pictures, I checked Toshiba's site in hopes of finding even a mention of these, no luck though.
