Libretto W100: World's 1st dual-touch-screen laptop



The PC Division of Toshiba India, a wholly owned subsidiary of Toshiba Corporation on Friday launched the world's first dual-touch-screen Windows mini-notebook PC - Libretto W100 - and its thinnest and lightest full-function 33.8cm (13.3 inch) laptop Portege R700 to celebrate the 25th anniversary for Toshiba Laptop business.

The Libretto (W100) runs on Microsoft Windows 7 that offers the consumer an enriched ultra-mobile computing experience. The Libretto W100 showcases Toshiba's engineering skill and ingenuity, creating a unique pocket-sized companion that can be used to create and consume any content.

The Libretto W100 has two 17.8cm (7 inch) touch-sensitive screens.

It can mimic both 'traditional media', opening like a book, or 'high-tech' media, like lifting the lid of a laptop. That means users could hold the Libretto W100 vertically to read the double-page spread of a newspaper, or could hold it horizontally, reading a document on the upper screen, while using the lower screen to capture clippings and ideas.

The lower screen can also display a virtual keyboard, enabling the device to function in the same way as a laptop.

The user can easily drag and drop content, files or icons from one screen to another with a simple sweep of the finger.

Lighter and smaller than even a netbook, people can carry the Libretto W100 with them nearly everywhere.

Its wireless connectivity can provide convenient web access on the move.

The Portege R700 is Toshiba's thinnest and lightest full-function  33.8cm (13.3 inch) laptop with an impressive blend of mobility, performance and features for business users.

A well-specified business machine, it combines a lightweight, ultra-slim chassis with innovative computing technologies.

Airflow Cooling Technology, co-developed by Intel and Toshiba, allows the latter to integrate the latest Intel Core family processors in the Port g R700's slim casing.

A honeycomb structure in the palm-rest area makes the Port g R700 highly durable against flexing - protecting the electronic and mechanical components from being damaged, considerably prolonging the life of the product.

By innovatively stacking the memory slots vertically, the Port g R700 can accommodate up to 8GB RAM for even more powerful performance.

Portege R700 doesn't compromise on battery life - it can run for an entire working day of up to eight hours on one battery charge.

The new model offers even more useful features to enhance its portability and appeal for business people; e.g. a durable yet very elegant black magnesium-alloy cover with a matt finish, a 3D sensor for hard disk protection against drops and shocks , a broad range of connectivity options, a Clear Super View Technology LED Backlit screen and a docking station connector.

The docking station supports HDMI and USB 3.0 for fast data transfer.
