  1. Toshiba has launched a new budget-minded 2-in-1 that packs some above-average hardware considering the price.

    As its name suggests, the Toshiba Satellite Click 10 is a 2-in-1 running Microsoft’s new operating system. It features a 10-1.inch multitouch display operating at a resolution of 1,900 x 1,200 (16:9 aspect ratio) that’s powered by Intel’s 64-bit, quad-core Atom x5-Z8300 processor clocked at 1.4GHz alongside 2GB of RAM.

    The system includes an 8-megapixel rear camera, a front-facing 2-megapixel camera for video calls that’s flanked by dual microphones, 802.11 a/g/n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.1. The tablet portion features a micro HDMI port, microphone / headphone combination jack, a USB 2.0 port and a microSD card slot while the keyboard dock is home to an additional two USB 2.0 ports. It’s offered with your choice of 32GB or 64GB of local flash storage and comes with a non-removable 2-cell, 22.5Wh lithium battery.

    The combo tips the scales at 2.2 pounds; the tablet itself weighs 1.2 pounds and measures 0.36 inches (9mm) thick.

    Pricing starts at just $349.99 for the 32GB model and climbs just $20 more for the 64GB variant. The Intel Atom x5 isn’t exactly a powerhouse of a chip but considering the price, flexibility and high-resolution display, you’d be hard-pressed to find a 2-in-1 with better value.

    Both models are up now on Toshiba’s website although neither is expected to ship until September 28.

    A fantastic value none the less, but putting usb 2.0 on a new product now is not really smart.

    Why? People who buy this aren't really interested in going fast anyway.

    It looks like the right upgrade to my Asus Transformer T100 since I can't afford the likes of SP3 nor XPS

    I wouldn't say that. Just aren't interested in heavy processing work. It just seems lame to expand the lifespan of 2.0 ports when it's barely an expense to add usb 3.0.
