The Toshiba Satellite Click 2 Pro is an intriguing system that seems to have it all when you look at the specs. It gives you a fast processor, plenty of RAM, and the flexibility of being able to be used as both a laptop and tablet. But it is also an example of hybrid compromises: Its lackluster battery life undercuts its ample processing power, and the detachable design limits the flexibility of the hinge and puts the weight up top, making it awkward to use.

The Toshiba Satellite Click 2 Pro P35W-B3226 is a frustrating device to review. On the one hand, it's a giant improvement (and significant departure) from the original Toshiba Satellite Click W35Dt-AST2N01, with a potent Intel Core i7 processor, a gorgeous display, and excellent sound. But the failings of the docking hinge are impossible to ignore, and only serve to highlight the few other areas where the system falters, like the spotty gesture controls on the touchpad, the less-than-stellar keyboard, and the middling battery life. We still haven't seen an Editors' Choice in the high-end hybrid tablet space, but for the time being, if you want Windows tablet functionality, we'd recommend the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 over the Toshiba Satellite Click 2 Pro.

Intel HD Graphics 4400:
ULV integrated GPU (GT2) with 20 EUs found on certain Haswell CPU models.
Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.
4510U: Haswell-based ULV dual-core processor clocked at 2.0 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.1 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4400 and a dual-channel DDR3 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.
The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
