CES 2016 | Toshiba dynaPad is world's thinnest and lightest 12" Windows tablet

The new tablet is just 6.9 mm (0.27 in) thin, weighs 1.28 pounds and comes with a stylus.

Toshiba announced its new 12-inch, Windows-powered dynaPad tablet at CES 2016 in Las Vegas today. According to the company, the dynaPad is the thinnest and lightest device in its category on the market, measuring just 6.9 mm (0.27 in) and weighing 1.28 pounds.

The slate is sized to mimic the A4 format size and boasts carbon fiber chassis with rubberized finish for both sophisticated looks and solid build quality. The device also offers an optional ultra-thin, full-size keyboard with a 19 mm pitch and 1.5 mm stroke for easier typing and a well-sized touchpad ideal for Windows navigation. Attached by magnets, users can quickly convert the tablet to a clamshell laptop for productivity applications. The TruPen stylus that dynaPad comes with, attaches to the side of the tablet.

Toshiba dynaPad is powered by Intel Atom x5-Z8300 processor, accompanied by up to 4 GB of RAM and comes with up to 64 GB of flash storage (partly taken by the Windows 10 operating system). Connectivity options include two micro-USB 2.0 ports, a micro-SD card reader allowing storage expansion by up to 128 GB as well as a micro-HDMI output. On top of that, dynaPad houses an 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth modules as well as a 2 MP front-facing camera.

Toshiba dynaPad is available today for pre-order starting today for $569.99 MSRP.
