To mark the 25th anniversary since Toshiba produced the first Intel 286-based clamshell laptop, the libretto W100 will be released as a limited edition. It packs an Intel Pentium U5400 processor, 2GB of RAM, 62GB solid state drive and Windows 7 Home Premium. It is amazingly light at 1.8lbs and measuring just 4.84” by 7.95” when closed, it’s really small. Both screens show in a 1024 x 600 resolution. It has Wi-Fi and Bluetooth capabilities. You will be able to use all the regular Windows applications like Microsoft Office or Skype.

You can have it sitting as a normal laptop like a clamshell or lay it down flat. The screens can work independently or together giving you the freedom to use it how it you like. I think this would be useful if you want to view a webpage on one screen while checking email on another or viewing two documents simultaneously. I would like to play a game against someone on the libretto W100. Why not have them sit opposite you and battle it out? Oh I can see this will bring hours of fun.

The virtual keyboard can be configured to suit your personal style as there are six virtual keyboard modes and a virtual touchpad. The libretto W100 features haptic technology which makes typing fast and accurate as it provides sensory feedback when keys are selected. It has one USB port and a built-in memory reader so you transfer data easily, along with a built-in Webcam.

A limited number of the libretto W100 tablet laptop will be available at selected retailers and direct from Toshiba at www. There has not been a price announced but I would expect it to be pricey. I really want one. It’s just so portable and sleek. What do you think? Will you get one before it sells out?
