Toshiba Releases Laptop Using Intel’s Wireless Display

April 19, 2010, By Radimir Bobev

Not much is known about the Intel Wireless Display (WiDi) wireless technology, but it’s apparently a very important piece of tech coming to the market soon. Now, we get to see it for the first time in Toshiba’s newest laptop, the Satellite A660.

The new Satellite laptop range features mobile versions of the Core i3, i5 and i7 chips by Intel, as well as nVidia chips for graphics rendering. They also boast Blu-Ray drives, which is becoming quite common in this year’s laptops, and a 16″ 16:9 LED display with TruBrite. The laptops also offer 802.11n Wi-Fi for your wireless needs.

The new WiDi technology will allow the laptop to transmit its screen signal straight to a TV which supports the feature, which will allow you to use such a TV for an improvised monitor. The TV will need to be equipped with a WiDi adapter – one example is the NetGear PTV1000. This may make it a somewhat less attractive option for the time being, but it should catch on sooner or later.
