September 06, 2013
Toshiba’s entering the detachable hybrid game with a bang. Say hello to the Satellite Click, an all new detachable consumer PC, offering the full functionality of a Windows 8 laptop with the convenience of a tablet in one portable device. Designed with a removable 13.3-inch diagonal touchscreen tablet that locks and unlocks from the hinge, Satellite Click offers “seamless” transition between laptop and tablet modes.
The Satellite Click utilizes AMD’s low-power A4 APU with AMD Radeon 8000 graphics and 4GB of 1600MHz DDR3L RAM. It boasts fast, laptop-class dual-core performance while maintaining a generous battery life rating. A 500GB hard drive is built-in to the removable screen making it convenient to store files, photos and media libraries on the same device used for travel. Tablet essentials, including a build-in webcam, Micro USB 2.0 and HDMI ports, a microSD slot, plus accelerometer and gyroscope sensors, enable the device’s transformation from laptop to tablet without compromise.
“The first generation of detachable PCs was out of reach of the mainstream buyer,” said Carl Pinto, vice president of marketing, Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc., Digital Products Division. “We believe that home users can truly benefit from the form factor as it provides the versatility for both work and play. We paid attention to every detail with the Satellite Click, equipping it with the right processor, ample storage and a larger-screen tablet at an attainable price.”
The detachable design of the Satellite Click enables transition from productivity to play, delivering the horsepower needed for both content creation and consumption from one device. The PC features a hing design that allows the screen to be removed completely or tilted up to 125 degrees when in laptop mode. A dual-battery set-up supports DC-in on both the keyboard base and on the screen, giving the user the flexibility to charge while docked or undocked.
The keyboard base consists of a full-size keyboard and touchpad along with a USB 3.0 port with Toshiba’s USB Sleep & Charge technology. The devices is enclosed in a silver casing with a fanless design for a clean look whether it’s being used as a laptop or a tablet.
