Toshiba's launched the Satellite L630 laptop in India. This is meant to be a tough-guy laptop, designed to withstand rough Indian conditions. To do this, it uses two features; the wipeable keyboard and a 3D hard drive impact sensor. The wipeable keyboard, in addition to protection from the obvious Indian 'condition' of dust, also facilitates clean up of liquid spills and grease smudges. The 3D hard drive impact sensor protects the hard drives inside the device when using during a bumpy car/bus ride. During a sudden jerky movement, the sensor will cause the heads of hard drives to 'park' before any damage occurs.
Specs of the L630 laptop are:
Intel Pentium Dual CoreTM P6100 (2.0GHz, 1066MHz FSB)
Genuine Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit
Genuine Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
