The Satellite A70 series notebook comes with a Mobile Pentium 4 3.06GHz processor, 60GB hard drive, 512MB of memory and a 15.4-inch wide screen, integrated 802.11 b/g Wi-Fi.  The operating system included is Microsof XP Professional and the Microsoft Office OneNote software also comes bundled, a $199 value.  The warranty included is 1-year parts and labor.  This notebook is intended as a high-end performance machine yet it is still in a form factor that is mobile and so is not a pure desktop replacement.  The Satellite A70 is available from Toshiba now for $1499:
