Toshiba has unveiled two additions to its Satellite range – with the Satellite L450 and 699 Satellite L555 announced to coincide with the arrival of Microsoft's Windows 7 on 22 October.

The two laptops are "aimed at consumers looking for affordability without compromising on style and performance," according to Toshiba, with the L450 price set at £329 and the bigger L555 costing £699 – presumably on the upper edge of 'affordable'.

There's an HDMI port, three USB 2.0 ports and it comes with a brushed silver finish.

And, as you may expect it comes with Windows 7 Home Premium installed.
