What is the meaning of such sorcery? Yet another line is being breached in the world of technology, as the Ultrabook is no longer an ordinary Ultrabook with the release of the Toshiba Portege Z10t. In fact, Toshiba’s latest release would clearly make this the first device that runs on the Windows 8 operating system from the company that was specially designed for business users. It is a versatile device by any means, where it is capable of functioning as an Ultrabook whenever the need arises, and if you find yourself in a situation where a tablet is more suitable to use, then the Toshiba Portege Z10t can also double up as that, too.
With the Toshiba Portege Z10t, you are able to switch form factors instantly between notebook and tablet in the simplest of actions – that is, to detach the screen. When detached you will find the tablet segment a wee bit larger than usual, especially when you are so used to the 7” tablet market – but those who are using hybrid Ultrabooks like the Dell XPS 12 and the Lenovo Yoga 13 would find it ideal, as the Toshiba Portege Z10t comes with an 11.6” diagonal, Full HD, IPS anti-glare touchscreen display that ought to offer a whole lot more screen real estate compared to the other tablets, without sacrificing on the ultra-responsive performance of a notebook.
Not only that, there is also a built-in digitizer that would increase the amount of functionality for folks who want to write and take notes on-screen. As for the detachable keyboard, it will come with a touchpad that we suspect will not see much action, since you would most probably play with the touchscreen display itself. Still, it boasts of Windows 8 gesture support and Accupoint, and is LED backlit and spill-resistant. You can choose from 128GB or 256GB SSD configurations, where these will be accompanied by 4GB RAM, is Intel Wireless Display Ready, has a SD memory card slot, USB 3.0 and Micro HDMI ports, and an audio combo jack in addition to the keyboard dock carrying full-size HDMI, RGB, LAN and USB 2.0 ports.
