This laptop features Intel’s latest Core i5-430M processor. The Core i5 features dual cores capable of four processing threads.  It is a 64-bit processor that comes with 3 MB of L3 cache, runs at 2.26 GHz (up to 2.533 GHz with Intel TurboBoost) and built on a 32 nm die.  That means lower power, and less heat, which is ideal for a laptop.

The hard drive is loaded with Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit edition.  Other software includes a bunch of Toshiba crapware like TOSHIBA DVD Player, TOSHIBA Disc Creator, TOSHIBA Power-Saving eco Utility™, TOSHIBA PC Health Monitor,Microsoft® Works Version 9.0, TOSHIBA ConfigFree®, WildTangent® Orb™ Games Console, TOSHIBA Face Recognition, Hard disc (HDD) recovery, TOSHIBA Recovery Media Creator, Microsoft® Office Home and Student 2007 Edition (60-day trial), Microsoft® Silverlight™ , Norton Internet Security™ 2010 (30-day trial), Microsoft® Windows Live Essentials including Photo Gallery, Messenger, Mail and Writer, TOSHIBA ReelTime™, and TOSHIBA Bulletin Board™.
