If you like your laptops to be all powerful and packed to the rafters with the latest tech then rejoice, as Toshiba has announced an update to the Satellite A665, Satellite A660 and Qosmio X500 performance/gaming laptops.

The updates, not surprisingly, centre around hardware updates including enhanced multimedia and connectivity features on the Satellite machines, while the Qosmio X500 also gains 3D functionality following new software updates.

All three laptops get the second generation Intel Core i7 processors, whilst USB 3.0 port on the Satellite A665 and Satellite A660 allows users to transfer documents between peripheral devices and external hard disk drives up to ten times faster than with USB 2.0. In addition, the integration of the latest Bluetooth 3.0 technology on all three models enables users to wirelessly transfer data with compatible devices at up to 24Mbits per second.

The new 3D features on the Qosmio X500 will give it a boost when hooking it up to a 3D TV, and it's now able to take 2D content and instantly render it as a 3D image when played on the Toshiba Video Player 3D software - which if done properly could mean existing films in your collection could get a new twist.

The updated Satellite A660, Satellite A665 and Qosmio X500 will be available from the end of January 2011.
