Looking to get your hands on a notebook/tablet hybrid sort of device? Well it seems that Toshiba has such a device up their sleeves and it was on display at CES 2012 that was held last week. The notebook/tablet hybrid has been dubbed the Portege M930 and will allow the user to swap between notebook mode and tablet mode simply by lifting up the display backwards, then fold it back down (like you were closing a laptop lid), thus transforming it from notebook to tablet.
The main difference between the Portege M930 and similar slider devices, such as the ASUS Eee Pad Slider, is that instead of running on a mobile platform like Android, the Portege M930 appears to be running on Windows instead. As far as tech specs are concerned, the Portege M930 will feature a 13.3” display, an Intel Core i5 processor with 4GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD.
Granted it’s not exactly the lightest or thinnest notebook, let alone tablet, it sure is an interesting concept that tries to blend the power and functionality of a full-fledged notebook into a tablet experience. No word on pricing or availability just yet, but who here wouldn’t mind getting their hands on the Toshiba Portege M930 when it comes out? For those interested, hands-on videos can be found at The Verge and Engadget.
