Year and MVP Accolades

The Computer Systems Division (CSD) of Toshiba America Information Systems Inc. (TAIS) continues to earn industry praise for its technology and innovation with a Best of Comdex award for its Portege(R) 3010CT.

A panel of PC Week editors, industry analysts and IT managers from various industries recognized the Portege 3010CT as the Best Desktop and Mobile System at a ceremony held yesterday.

Earlier this week, Toshiba earned the PC Magazine Technical Excellence Award for its Tecra(TM) 8000 series, the PC Computing MVP Product of the Year Award for its Portege 3010CT and two additional MVP Awards for its Satellite(R) 2505CDS and Portege 3010CT.

"The prestigious awards we've earned throughout this incredible week continue to confirm Toshiba's dominance in the mobile computing industry," said Steve Ross, general manager, Toshiba CSD. "It's gratifying to be recognized by a committee of industry experts and corporate users for products that were developed to meet the needs of our customers."

The Best of Comdex Awards recognize the best and most innovative products introduced by the more than 2,400 exhibitors at Comdex in 10 categories. The Portege 3010CT prevailed over hundreds of notebook and desktop PCs including the three other finalists, the Hewlett-Packard Co. HP Kayak XW PC Workstation, Vadem Clio and C Technologies ABC Pen.

Applauded for its outstanding industrial design and impressive value, the Portege 3010CT offers the perfect blend of ultraportability and performance.

Combined with a brilliant 10.4-inch TFT display and fast 128-bit NeoMagic(TM) graphics accelerator, the Portege 3010CT is well suited for general office applications, Internet access, presentations and remote communication. The estimated single unit street price for the Portege 3010CT is $1,999.
