Another new convertible device which can be said as both tablet and a Netbook at the same time is under work at Toshiba’s workshop. This device was not showcased at the CES, 2012 where, the Toshiba Portege M930 was seen jostling for space at the Windows camp which was full of mostly the Ultrabooks.
The Portege M930 is mainly powered by an Intel Core i5 processor and sports a 13.1inch screen which is capable of providing a resolution up to 1280 x 800pixels. It is also expected to run on Windows 8. For storage the device has 4GB RAM, 256 GB hard drive.
The manner I which this device transforms into a tablet from a Netbook is really one of the special aspects for convertible Netbook but the same design or the sliding screen over the keyboard quite resembles the Asus Eee pad slider and Samsung Series 7. Although we cannot tell them to be exactly the same, as they are really different.
This Netbook weighs about 4.2pounds and it will certainly not get included in the Ultrabook segment. This device also rules out one easy hand tablet operation. This device even doesn’t provide the array of ports which one expects in a Netbook.
Although the Portege M930, is being displayed at the CES but it seems the product still seems to be far from being released. As the product responded only to the stylus, it was not responding to finger touch.
However, nothing much was offered at the CES as no expected launch date was announced neither any price declared for the device.
