Toshiba Produces Tiny Convertible PC

The Satellite Click Mini L9W-B-102 is a new convertible tablet from Toshiba, offering up to 13 hours of battery life in notebook mode. The device is a very small “Windows 8.1 With Bing” model – just 8.9″ – with minimal (32GB) local storage, although there is an SD slot for up to 128GB of extra space. The majority of data – up to 1TB – is kept in the cloud.

Despite its small form factor, the Click Mini has high resolution: 1920 x 1200, as well as an IPS panel with 170° viewing angles. It weighs 479g in tablet mode and 989g with the docked keyboard. The tablet’s battery will last for up to seven hours.

Windows 8.1 runs on a 1.33GHz Intel Atom processor, with 2GB of RAM. The tablet features a micro-USB port and micro-HDMI output; the keyboard adds a full-size USB 2.0 port.

Toshiba’s new convertible is part of its commitment to gaining a 12% market share in the German and Austrian 2-in-1 space this year. It will be launched in the region in April, for €335 ex VAT.
