Toshiba adds new laptops, 2-in-1s, and 8” tablet to the family

Today, Toshiba announced a series of new devices to their lineup, including Encore—a brand new 8” tablet!

Encore

Perhaps the most exciting new device from Toshiba, the Encore tablet has an 8” 1280×800 HFFS display with 5-point multi-touch support with Windows 8.1. Now, everything you can do on your laptop, you can do in the palm of your hand!

Designed with travel in mind, this tablet will fit in your bag and your hand for easy use. Encore’s design incorporates dual cameras, stereo speakers and dual, beam-forming microphones which are optimized for using Skype and enjoying your favorite music and videos.

An 8.0MP rear camera will be great for snapping quick photos or videos, and you will look stunning on Skype with the 2.0MP front facing camera.

Enjoy Office Home & Student 2013, included in the price of this Encore tablet!  Work on your documents in Word, Excel, or PowerPoint, jot down your to-do list in OneNote, and then save all of it to SkyDrive, so you can access your stuff from virtually anywhere.

Affordable and portable 11.6” laptop

Ideal for a student or frequent traveler, make sure you look at the Satellite and Satellite Pro NB10, or Satellite NB15t in the US, from Toshiba. In Europe, you get your choice of a sleek sliver (Satellite) or sophisticated black (Satellite Pro) and the option of a touchscreen (something I would highly recommend). If you live in the US, it comes in silver with the touchscreen standard.

Equipped with a 500GB hard drive, the laptop provides plenty of storage space for media content and includes fast 802.11ac WiFi, Ethernet, USB 3.0 and HDMI ports plus an HD webcam.

Get the best of both worlds

Can’t decide between a tablet or a laptop? Why not get both in a single device? The new Satellite W30t and W30Dt 2-in-1s, or the Satellite Click in the US offer the portability of a tablet and functionality of a laptop thanks to the detachable keyboard. Preinstalled with Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 in Europe, you will be ready to surf the web and work on a spreadsheet side by side.

Boasting a 13.3” HD IPS display— it’s ideal for games and movies, as well as DTS Studio Sound making your entertainment experience even more immersive. Connect with your family and friends all over the world with Skype and the built in HD webcam and integrated microphone.

Look for these devices to hit the market later this year!
