Reviews for the Toshiba Excite 13

The Toshiba Excite 13 is an expensive outlier. If you want to look at Web-based recipes from across the room or play Netflix on the largest possible portable screen, it'll satisfy you. But most people will be better served by a laptop, a less-expensive tablet, or even a small TV.

In spite of these weaknesses, Toshiba deserves credit for taking a chance on the 13.3-inch tablet design. For entertainment, as well as for document creation and consumption, the Excite 13 is like no other tablet available today. But the price of admission is steep.
