IFA 2013 | Toshiba announces the AMD-powered Satellite Click
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 DDR3; 500 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.
