CES 2012 Ultrabook Round-Up

CES 2012 Ultrabook Round-Up

If CES last year was dominated by tablets, CES 2012 has been the year of the ultrabook. Intel's ultraportable notebook trademark had already picked up late in 2011, but it's the Consumer Electronics Show this week where the big guns like Dell and Samsung came out to give it some real momentum. If Intel has its way, one of the following machines will be lightly weighing on your shoulder over the next few months.

Toshiba Excite X10 Hands-on

Toshiba Excite X10 Hands-on

Toshiba announced yesterday that the super-skinny AT200 tablet would be headed to the US mid-Q1 as the Excite X10, and we wasted no time in grabbing some more play with the 0.3-inch slate.

Toshiba Excite Android tablet gets release date

Toshiba Excite Android tablet gets release date

When the first Toshiba Android tablet was released, it seemed like a really big deal - at one point it was even rumored that they'd be the ones to host the tablet-centric Android 3.0 Honeycomb as a hero - alas that did not happen, and now that the first iteration (call the Toshiba Thrive, just so you know) is both too fat and unwieldily to sell as a top dog, the big T is sending out a new generation called Toshiba Excite. This tablet was revealed a few weeks ago as a contender for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 with its dual-core 1.2Ghz Texas Instruments OMAP4 processor and its 10.1-inch display at 1280 x 800 resolution - and today Mobile Syrup relays Toshiba information that it'll be on sale come February 2012.

That's been rectified ahead of the 55X3 going on sale in Japan midway through this month, and as you'd expect for 4K2K and the ability to upscale Full HD, it doesn't come cheap: 900,000 yen, in fact, or a whopping $11,578.
