The 12-inch notebook weighs just 569 grams with a thickness of 6.9 mm for 880 Euros.

Toshiba will launch its DynaPad N72 detachable in Japan by the end of the year. A launch outside of its home country is likely to follow, though no official announcements have been made. The manufacturer claims it to be the thinnest and lightest Windows 10 device in a 12-inch form factor.

Two configurations will be made available as model number PNZ72TG-NNA (64 GB) and PNZ72TG-NWA3 (128 GB). The 64 GB version will set users back 120000 Yen (880 Euros) while the 128 GB model will cost an additional 30000 Yen. Both will have the Satin Gold color option and an Active Electrostatic Stylus (AES) from Wacom capable of recognizing up to 2048 pressure levels.

Interestingly, the keyboard dock will not launch simultaneously with the tablet. Instead, the dock will come a few months later during the first quarter of 2016. The connection will be magnetic in addition to POGO pins and provides a fixed angle of 120 degrees.

Core specifications include:

  • 12.0-inch WUXGA+ (1920 x 1080) matte display
  • Intel Atom Z8300-x5 (1.44 GHz + Burst up to 1.84 GHz)
  • Integrated HD Graphics (Cherry Trail)
  • WiFi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 4.0, Micro-HDMI, 2x Micro-USB 2.0
  • 8 MP rear + 2 MP front cameras
  • 64/128 GB SSD
  • Keyboards dimensions: 299.4 x 203 x 14.9 mm

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
