Toshiba's low-cost Satellite Click 10 hybrid packs Intel's new Atom x5 and a HD display

Toshiba's got a new hybrid tablet-laptop for budget conscious travelers looking for a lightweight system to tote with them.

Attention road warriors: Toshiba just announced a new low-cost tablet-laptop hybrid packing Windows 10, a better-than-1080p display, and Intel’s energy-efficient new Atom “Cherry Trail” x5 processors.

The Satellite Click 10 is one of the earliest lightweight Windows 2-in-1 devices to pack an Atom x5, following in the footsteps of Microsoft's Surface 3. Toshiba’s also got a entry-level starting price to complement the Click 10’s entry-level CPU: $US350.

That cash buys you a 10.1-inch multitouch display with 1900-by-1200 resolution, along with a quad-core 1.4GHz Atom x5-Z8300 processor, Windows 10, 2GB of RAM, and your choice of 32GB or 64GB of onboard storage.

The device also packs an 8 megapixel rear-facing camera, a 2MP front-facer, multidirectional TruTalk microphones, micro HDMI, microSD, a USB 2.0 slot, and Dolby Digital Plus speakers. The device has a 0.36-inch profile and weighs 1.2 pounds in tablet mode—add another pound with the keyboard connected.

The Satelllite Click 10 is available for pre-order now with an estimated ship date of Friday, September 25.

The impact on you at home: We’re finally starting to see the early debut of high-end new machines built around Windows 10's flagship features, like the Toshiba Satellite Radius 12. But the introduction of budget laptops like the Click 10 are just as important, since they provide an easy way to add a Windows 10 machine to your travel gear without adding too much weight.

The Click 10 is also one of the earliest hybrids to come packing Intel’s Cherry Trail-based Atom x5—a beefed up version of Intel’s Atom line that promises better graphics. Archos also announced an x5-packing laptop in late August but that product will only roll out in France to start, and it won't hit the streets until November.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
