Toshiba today announced the Portege M700 Tablet PC series, the company's first Tablet PC to incorporate a touch screen LED backlit display.
The Portege M700 detects the presence of a digital pen or a user's fingertip, automatically switching between the different input methods, with the digital pen given priority when both inputs are simultaneously detected.
The Portege M700 series incorporates an LED backlit display with anti-glare coating, which allows Toshiba?s new Tablet PC to be viewed in a wide range of environments both indoors and outdoors.
The resolution offered by the widescreen 12.1-inch WXGA display of Toshiba's Portege M700 yields 30 percent more detail than a standard 12.1-inch XGA display.
The devices use Intel Centrino Pro processor1 technology, including Intel Core 2 Duo Processors, Intel 965 Express chipset, Intel Wireless Wi-Fi Link 4965AGN supporting draft 802.11n3, and Intel Active Management Technology (AMT 2.6). Intel's AMT 2.6 delivers the ability to remotely deploy systems and supply proactive security and maintenance measures.
The Ultra SlimBay on the Portege M700 gives users the flexibility to change the configuration of the Tablet PC to adjust to their individual user needs. With support for an internal optical drive, second hard drive or weight saver, the Ultra SlimBay helps eliminate the bulk and inconvenience of carrying additional external components. The Port?g? M700 comes with a DVD SuperMulti Drive and weight saver as part of the standard configuration.
To simplify the transition from notebook computer to Tablet PC, the Portege M700 design incorporates an hinge and display guide/peg mechanism as well as latch-less design. The inclusion of the latch-less design enables Toshiba to integrate an 1.3 megapixel webcam and microphone on the bezel of the Portege M700.
