The tablet and laptop hybrid design, made famous by the Microsoft Surface, is becoming more widely adopted as shown by the iPad Pro. Usually, these devices incur a rather hefty cost and out of the reach of most consumers. However, the Toshiba Satellite Click 10 is solely focused on the lower-end segment and retails for $349.99. In terms of its specification, the Click 10 features an Intel Atom x5 Z8300 processor, 2GB RAM, 10.1-inch 1920×1200 multi-touch display and choice between 32GB or 64GB of SSD storage. Furthermore, the maximum storage can be increased via an integrated MicroSD slot.
Toshiba also managed to include a Micro HDMI port, Dolby Digital Plus stereo speakers, front 8-megapixel camera and rear 2-megapixel rear cameras. While it’s not the most powerful device out there, the Click 10 is beautifully designed due to a 2.2 pound weight with the clip-on keyboard. Once removed, the weight reduces to 1.2 pounds and has a 9mm thick frame. This makes it extremely portable and more than capable of performing basic tasks on-the-move.
There are a number of other solid features such as Bluetooth 4.1, 802.11a/g/n Wi-Fi, and an optional external DVD drive. Overall, the lower price point allows more consumers to give the form factor a try to upgrade to flagship models in the near future.
