It looks like Japan is going to get the jump on Ivy Bridge-equipped Toshiba laptops. We heard a week or two ago that the company's lineup of laptops using Intel's third-generation Core processors wasn't coming to the US until Q3, but a pre-order page on Toshiba's Japanese website shows that at least two models will be available on the other side of the Pacific in mid-May. First up is the Dynabook Satellite T572 (a successor to the T571), which will be powered by an unspecified Ivy Bridge processor (we assume it'll be either the Core i7-3610QM or 3615QM, both of which match the minimal specs given on the preorder page), integrated HD Graphics 4000, and 4GB of RAM. There's also the Dynabook Satellite T772, which offers twice as much standard RAM and has a discrete Nvidia GeForce GT 630M graphics card. Both models come with a disappointingly low-resolution 17.3-inch, 1600 x 900 display, and they start at ¥133,800 (about $1,657) and ¥153,800 (about $1,904), respectively. Pre-orders open up on April 29th, and they're estimated to start shipping on May 17th. Before you get too disappointed that Japan's getting a head start on the US, it's possible that these dates might get pushed back a bit — especially since we haven't seen a press release from the company announcing these systems yet.
