The Intel Atom Z8300-x5 powered Windows 10 2-in1 tablet Toshiba Satellite Click 10 (LX0W-C64) is taking pre-orders ahead of the September release, with a launch price of $369 in the US:
The Toshiba Satellite Click 10 Signature Edition is also taking orders:
This is a 10.1-inch 2-in-1 tablet from Toshiba that Tabletmonkeys discovered in May. With the new 64-bit quad-core 1.44 GHz (with 1.84 GHz Turbo Burst) Intel Atom “Cherry-Trail” x5-8300 processor it has a significantly more powerful graphics processor than the old “Bay-Trail” processor that tablets in this 10.1-inch segment have been running since 2013.
Toshiba Satellite Click 10 has 64GB of storage, with options of 2GB or 4GB RAM, like that on the Surface 3.
The detachable 10.1-inch screen that is the tablet, has a Full HD display with a resolution of 1920 x 1200, with 10-point multi-touch support. To give you something to look at there’s a 2MP front camera, and a 8MP rear camera. The stereo speakers are on the sides of the tablet (when viewed in horizontal landscape mode).
Wi-Fi bands supported are dual-band 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz 802.11 a/b/g/n as we discovered in the Wi-Fi certification in May. As for ports and plugs, the keyboard docking on the Toshiba Satellite Click 10 holds a fully sized USB port on each side. The tablet itself holds one micro-USB port, in addition to also having a micro-HDMI port, a microSD card slot, and a 3.5mm audio combo jack.
The battery life is currently estimated to last for 8 hours. The battery life could increase in a few months from now as Microsoft and Intel is jointly working on improving the battery life of Windows 10 devices. But if there’s an improvement coming eventually, it should affect all Windows 10 devices anyway.
Toshiba has silently caught up and built a pretty decent tablet portfolio over the last year, at least on the Windows side of things. The new Toshiba Satellite Click 10 has okay specifications even though it has lower specs than the Surface 3. But at least it’s cheaper than its rival from Microsoft.
