Toshiba's Satellite Click is the first detachable device to use AMD's Temash APU. This 13.3-inch ultrabook offers both tablet convenience and laptop functionality in a single package.

Toshiba today announced the arrival of its first device to use an AMD Temash APU. The Satellite Click 13.3-inch notebook is a hybrid that features a detachable keyboard/dock and a removable touchscreen tablet.

While most competitors announced tablet/notebook hybrids powered by Intel, Toshiba made a bold move and decided to use an AMD SoC. This decision may prove to be a smart one, given the price/features ratio offered by the Satellite Click.

This portable has most of the hardware located inside the touchscreen/tablet, including the 500 GB HDD. These are the main specifications of the Satellite Click:

  • Processor: dual-core 1 GHz A4-1200 with AMD Radeon HD 8180 graphics
  • Memory/Storage: 4GB DDR3500 GB HDD and microSD support
  • Display: 13.3-inch IPS touchscreen 
  • Connectivity: micro USB, a single USB 3.0 port and micro HDMI
  • Operating system: Windows 8

In addition to the above, the Toshiba Satellite Click also features a webcam and a dual-battery setup that supports DC-in on both the screen and the keyboard base. Its silver casing and fanless design also make it a very attractive choice at a price around the $600 mark (not confirmed by Toshiba yet).

The Satellite Click will be available later this month exclusively through Best Buy  (online and in stores) and Toshiba Direct.
