USB Sleep-and-Charge Ports
Quench your thirst for power.
Simplifying your life? Now Toshiba laptops can do it in their sleep, thanks to USB Sleep–and–Charge ports. It’s the easiest way ever to charge your smart phone, MP3 player or other portable electronics, even when your laptop is turned off. Because, believe it or not, sometimes you won’t want to boot your laptop all the way up or keep it all the way on.
Plug into a portable power station
Devices that are USB powered are so essential, yet so needy when it comes to power. But now you can keep them all happy, helpful and showing full bars with a Toshiba laptop that offers USB Sleep–and–Charge ports. And your notebook doesn’t have to be awake to do it. Now that’s convenience!
You’re well connected
Select Toshiba laptops offer up to four convenient USB Sleep–and–Charge ports. So even if you’ve hooked up an external mouse and keyboard, you’ll still have options for synching and charging your portable electronics–without the expense and hassle of adding an external USB hub.
Have ports, will travel
USB Sleep–and–Charge ports make traveling easier too. When you and your gadgets come back to the hotel room feeling a bit drained, just plug in and charge them right back up while you and your laptop are asleep. As for those bulky AC adapters that came with your gear, you can leave them back at home.
Give your media a facelift
Together, new high-def screens and high-res digital media can make your life much more entertaining. The downside is older movies, photos and video clips might look fuzzy and less than ideal. But the Toshiba DVD Player software offers an easy fix with new Resolution+ DVD upconversion technology. It’s our exclusive innovation that takes standard definition DVD content and upscales it so you get a sharper, more vibrant picture that looks and feels more like HD.
Add hi-def to older DVDs
It’s great you’ve equipped your world with TVs, monitors and laptops with high-def display capabilities. But no matter how sharp the screen, your collection of standard-def DVDs is bound to look grainy. Resolution+ solves that problem by breathing new life into your favorite flicks.
Hone your home movies
Camcorders have come a long way over the years, which means those old vacation and graduation DVDs could look even better the next time you want to show them. Resolution+ gives your home movies a facelift so you can sit back and enjoy them on your HDTV.
Get in on our secret
What’s behind Toshiba’s Resolution+? Our exclusive upscaling algorithm designed to deliver contrast and color enhancements in real-time. Utilizing the advanced graphics processing capabilities of your laptop, standard definition video is converted from a low to a higher resolution so you can enjoy your DVD movies with sharper image clarity and contrast on your HD display.
Store it Smarter. Get it Faster.
Faced with a growing collection of personal and professional files, blossoming photo albums, and a catalogue of home movies, many have begun using external hard drives to ease the strain on their laptop. But if only you could transfer those files faster. Well, with the introduction of high-speed eSATA USB ports on new Toshiba laptops, now you can.
Enjoy a stellar storage solution
Typical home video files can range up to 1GB or more. Add thousands of pix, humongous amounts of music plus millions of miscellaneous files and even the biggest hard drive can feel the pinch. But with external storage and an eSATA port on your Toshiba laptop you can offload those files and transfer them faster than via a standard USB port. What a relief!
Fast-forward your movie-making
If you enjoy making movies on your notebook you know how quickly precious hard drive space can vanish. But with an external hard drive and an eSATA port on your Toshiba laptop you quickly gain access to tons of high-speed storage. What’s more, you also get a fast way to move around those chunks of video while making a saga of your big summer party.
Kick up your back-ups
Use an external hard drive to back-up your data? That’s a very smart solution. But with an eSATA port it quickly becomes an absolutely brilliant one. You can transfer your files up to 5 times faster than via a standard USB port. So you’ll be done in a flash and back enjoying the million or so things you can do on your Toshiba laptop.
Self-Encrypting Drive (SED)
Toshiba Self-Encrypting Drive (SED) technology is well suited for security sensitive applications by adding advanced access security and built-in hardware data encryption to its Tecra and Portégé series of laptops. With SED technology, one can quickly and easily secure and deploy encryption on business laptops to protect confidential information.
Toshiba Self Encrypted Drives will allow for lower total cost of ownership by reducing the time involved with getting units ready for each enterprise user. Deployment is fast and secure, and can be deployed seamlessly alongside pre-existing software encryption.
Unlike software solutions that impact the system performance Toshiba SED hardware encryption does not reduce the performance of the laptop.
In addition, Toshiba offers SED models with unique wipe technology features, allowing OEMs and security solutions designers to provide additional safeguards for protecting data. Your vital business information is safe, even if the data is stolen as that the data cannot be read from another PC.

Hard Drive Impact Sensor
Get the drop on unexpected falls
You can thank Toshiba innovation for your first line of defense against unforeseen knocks, dings and drops. It’s called the Hard Drive Impact Sensor―a complex system of hardware and software designed to detect sudden movements (as when your laptop starts to fall off a table) and “park” the heads of your hard drive before damage occurs. It works faster than you can blink to help protect your laptop and all-important data.
Dial in just the protection you need
Because everyone uses a laptop differently, we made sure you can customize the Hard Drive Impact Sensor to suit your situation. Safely docking your laptop on a desk for awhile? It’s okay to “tune” the sensor to its lowest sensitivity level. Taking your laptop around town? Putting it on a school desk or dining table? Better crank up the setting to help keep the unexpected from ruining your work.
Don't wonder where. Just ask when
Toshiba ReelTime™ replaces the old fashioned "hunt-and-click" method of finding your files with an visual timeline or "reel," Now, instead of questions like, "Where is it?" you simply ask "When did I use it?" You'll spend less time searching, more time doing and enjoying, and keep your day in high gear.
Save time searching.
Toshiba ReelTime™ shows a row of your most recent files as graphic previews at the bottom of your display, making it easy to see at a glance what's there. Flick through your reel to find the file you need. Then, keep it handy by dragging and docking it nearby. A brush of your finger or mouse is all it takes. ReelTime simplifies searching by automatically tracking and indexing the documents and programs you open. It groups them and presents them as visual thumbnails so you can easily find what you're looking for.

Simply connect your HDMI-equipped Toshiba laptop to a HDMI-compatible home theater and suddenly you’re right in the middle of the action, lost in the drama, blown away by the crisp highs and rich bass tones.
Go high-def in your home office

If that’s you, you’ll be glad to know that Toshiba laptops with HDMI offer much better quality and more flexibility than those with older A/V connections. So don’t deny yourself a single pixel of detail.

Which is why Toshiba has equipped the headphone jack on many of its laptops for double duty, serving as an S/P DIF digital audio port so you can plug into a home theater system. Toshiba innovation triumphs again―by giving you more freedom and enjoyment!

You’ll enjoy virtually every note from every single instrument, along with brighter highs and gorgeous lows. Plus, the quiet parts of songs or movies will seem all the more breathless. It’s a whole new listening experience.
Get your entertainment to go

With advancements like an S/P DIF connection, your richly equipped Toshiba multimedia notebook becomes a portable juke box, movie theater and superb gaming console—ready to deliver uncompromising sound at the snap of your fingers.
