The article presents information on the P20 series notebook personal computer from Toshiba. A 17-inch wide screen is the first thing that a person will notice about Toshiba's notebook computer, but the graphics is its most useful attribute. Processor power comes from a 3.06 GHz chip with Hyper-Threading technology, up to 80GB hard disk drive, 512 DDR RAM, DVD-burning capabilities, NVIDIA GeForce FX Go5200, USB 2.0 connectivity. Some of the features are new to the notebook market, such as the Intel Pentium 4 processor. That is supported by an 800 MHz system bus and with Hyper-Threading Technology, computing power, is unprecedented in this class. Hyper-Threading technology, helps a personal computer work more efficiently by maximising processor resources and enabling a single processor to run two separate threads of software simultaneously. The personal computer uses the module bays principle to allow users to swap optical drives for a second battery hard drive. It in effect reconfigures the device for the different uses business and leisure applications bring. The 17-inch screen of the notebook computer boasts a unique 1440-by-900 super crisp pixels in a wide screen 16:10 ration plus NVDIA's GeForce FX Go5200 graphics processor with unshared memory of up to 64MB.
