Windows 7: Toshiba throttling down consumer PC efforts

Toshiba throttling down consumer PC efforts

Toshiba has always made solid PC hardware, but finding one of their devices may be a bit tough moving forward. Toshiba is announcing they are scaling down their consumer PC efforts, and pulling out of some markets entirely. The company is also cutting 900 jobs, or just over 20% of its non-manufacturing PC workforce.

In a press release, Toshiba noted they will instead concentrate on their enterprise business. In expanding their product range and actively seeking new customers, Toshiba is anticipating a 50% growth in B2B by 2016.

Update: A Toshiba spokesperson has confirmed to us that further details on which markets will be affected is incoming, but their US consumer business will remain as-is.

Thanks Bill. Kind of interesting and scary at the same time.

Yes Bill I agree with Steve I have had Toshibas since about 2006 and the quality wasn't great then and now it has really gone downhill. Pity because they used to be the brand to buy once upon a time.
Am stuck for a decent buy now and looks like one of my only options is Toshiba as I cannot find something that meets my requirements plus a tad bit of overkill at a reasonable price.

I have been discussing this with a friend and the worry for me is that they now stick with the Intel graphics whereas they used AMD stuff like this machine I am on now.
