Versatile New 13.3-inch 2-in-1 Detachable PC Offers Tablet Convenience and Laptop Functionality
IRVINE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Toshiba’s Digital Products Division (DPD), a division of Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc., today announced the Satellite Click™, an all-new detachable consumer PC, offering the full functionality of a Windows 8 laptop with the convenience of a tablet in one portable device. Designed with a removable 13.3-inch diagonal touchscreen1 tablet that locks and unlocks from the hinge, Satellite Click offers a seamless transition between laptop and tablet modes. The Satellite Click is available exclusively via Best Buy and Toshiba Direct for the Holiday 2013 buying season.
The first detachable device to utilize AMD’s low-power A4 accelerated processing unit2 (APU), codenamed “Temash,” with AMD Radeon 8000 graphics3 and 4GB of 1600MHz DDR3L RAM4, the Satellite Click delivers fast, laptop-class dual-core performance while maintaining a generous battery life rating. A 500GB hard drive5 is built-in to the removable screen making it easy and convenient to store files, photos and media libraries on the same device used for travel. Tablet essentials, including a built-in webcam, Micro USB 2.0 and HDMI® ports, a microSD™ slot, plus accelerometer and gyroscope sensors, enable the device’s transformation from laptop to tablet without compromise.
“The first generation of detachable PCs was out of reach of the mainstream buyer,” said Carl Pinto, vice president of marketing, Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc., Digital Products Division. “We believe that home users can truly benefit from the form factor as it provides the versatility for both work and play. We paid attention to every detail with the Satellite Click, equipping it with the right processor, ample storage and a larger-screen tablet at an attainable price.”
“Our latest APUs are designed to address the needs of new and traditional mobile PC users who want an amazing visual experience,” said Bernd Lienhard, corporate vice president, AMD Client Products. “We worked closely with Toshiba to incorporate the new, power-efficient AMD A4 APU on the Satellite Click that combines stunning graphics and excellent CPU performance, while maintaining impressive battery life.”
The detachable design of the Satellite Click enables a seamless transition from productivity to play, delivering the horsepower needed for both content creation and consumption from one, highly-portable device. The device features a hinge design that allows the screen to be removed completely or tilted up to 125 degrees when in laptop mode. A dual-battery set-up supports DC-in on both the keyboard base and on the screen, giving the user the flexibility to charge while docked or undocked, while a smart approach to charging prioritizes the removable screen to receive a charge first.
The keyboard base consists of a full-size keyboard and touchpad along with a USB 3.0 port6 with Toshiba’s USB Sleep & Charge technology7. The device is enclosed in an attractive silver casing with a sleek fanless design for a clean, elegant look whether it’s being used as a laptop or a tablet.
The Satellite Click will be available beginning September, 2013 exclusively at Best Buy stores, BestBuy.com and ToshibaDirect.com.
