Toshiba Libretto W100 Unboxing and Review

"Toshiba's Libretto W100 is an exceedingly expensive way to get dual LCD touchscreens in a clamshell device, so you'll forgive us if we pay close attention to early unboxing reports to see if its worth the $1,400+ importers are currently asking."

At about $1,400, the Libretto W100 Windows 7 tablet sports two (2) 7-inch 1024x600 LCDs in a clamshell form factor that can open to lie flat on a table or work surface, or be used side-by-side when used as a eReader. Sporting a battery that lasts two hours (a larger four-hour battery pack is included), the first generation W100 can be rotated to work in portrait or landscape orientation (using both screens). With Windows 7 Home Premium, 62GB SSD, 2GB RAM and an Intel dual core processor onboard, simply hit the keyboard button to switch one of the screens into any of five haptic keyboards. Both screens can be used by Windows and linked into one larger screen. This is intriguing technology, seemingly well implemented by Toshiba. Check out the unboxing videos, I think that you'll be impressed! I am!

The Libretto Reimagined

"It’s hard not to compare the Toshiba Libretto W100 to the ill-fated Microsoft Courier or the equally ill-fated original concept designs for the next-generation OLPC XO Laptop. But the Libretto W100 is something different. The computer runs Windows 7, has an Intel ULV processor, and has a starting price of nearly $1100."

The original Libretto brings back fond memories for me of days gone by; where computers were basic tools to do word processing and spreadsheet. How things have changed! The reimagined Libretto does look pretty, and I think the concept has some merit, but I wuestion the choice of a 7" display. There is a reason why manufacturers started offering 8.9", 10" and 11" netbooks. Unless one eats six pounds of carrots a day, a 7" display at a decent resolution is a test worse than an optometrist. With a screen that small, Windows 7 is probably not the best operating system to go with.
