Back in July, information appeared about the imminent arrival of the world's first laptop with two displays to the market (I remember, this is not the first such laptop, someone released a conceptual model before them, but Toshiba was the first to launch this laptop into “people”). So, despite not quite comfortable design and functionality, Toshiba still launched sales of the Libretto W100 in Japan. Rather, almost launched - sales start on August 11th.
Recall that this device is positioned by the manufacturer not as a netbook, but as a full-fledged laptop, albeit without our usual keyboard. The operating system uses Windows 7 Home Premium, RAM - DDR3, 2 gigabytes. In addition, the internal memory of the device is represented by an SSD drive with a capacity of 62 gigabytes.
Both displays are sensory, the diagonal is 7 inches. The native resolution is 1024 * 768. The processor is installed low-power, Intel Pentium U5400 1.2 GHz. Bluetooth and WiFi modules are also installed, there is only one USB port. The video adapter is also not very powerful, Intel GMA HD.
There are two battery options - the usual one with which this laptop (nevertheless, rather, it’s still a netbook, and it’s not clear why Windows 7 is installed here) works for about 2 hours, and augmented one with which work is possible up to 4 hours.
In general, all this happiness by the end of summer should appear in the United States, where it is already more realistic to buy it to our citizens. The cost of the device is about a thousand US dollars, which, in principle, not so much for the world's first laptop with two displays and no keyboard. Those who have tried this miracle, complain of a lot of inconvenience and flaws, but, probably, the device will still find its buyer.
It is not yet known whether Libretto W100 will fall into the CIS countries, and if it does, how much local distributors will estimate. It seems that in our country it will cost not one thousand, but two, if not three thousand US dollars - there will always be someone who wants to stand out, even if not very comfortable with the device. What to do, it always has been, and probably will always be.
It is interesting, by the way, when this device will appear with us, or in the USA, where there is a fair number of members of the community, is someone going to buy Libretto W100? And if so, why is it just interesting, or have you dreamed to buy such a thing for a long time?
Well, for now we wish Toshiba good luck with its first sales of the world's first laptop with two displays.Source of
