Libretto L5/080TNKW and Libretto L5/080TNLN
Wireless notebooks are the future, and the two new Libretto L5 series from Toshiba are just one more step in that direction. The L5 Series Model 080TNKW specifically features built in 802.11b wireless lan capabilities with 128-bit WEP encryption.

Wireless is a power hungry process so it will be interesting to see how battery life is augmented between normal operation of the Toshiba Libretto L5 and when it is connected to the network wirelessly. For the record, the L5 series are spec'd out at 4.5 to 13.5 hours depending on the battery size.

Both Libretto L5 notebooks were introduced in Japan today with only a few points separating them - essentially one version has wireless, and the other does not.

What you get for your hard earned money ($1000-$1300USD) is a Transmeta TM5800 Crusoe processor running at 800MHz, 256MB of SDRAM (expandible to 512MB), a 20GB ATA66 hard drive, and a 10.5" XGA LCD display capable of 1280×600 resolutions.

The L5/080TNKW weighs just under 3 pounds and comes loaded with Windows XP home edition.

In the first few months of this year Transmeta experienced a lot of problems keeping up with its ability to deliver TM5800 processors to manufacturers like Toshiba in volume. The release of the Toshiba L5 is a very good signal for Transmeta who has had its stock shrunk down to about $2.60 from an initial price of $40/share.

Subnotebooks like the L5 measure just 20-30mm thick and are extremely portable. The low power requirements that the 0.13micron process Transmeta Crusoe processor bring to the table help to make these types of notebooks long lasting, and yet still fully capable of handling the tasks of a out-of-office employee.
