Toshiba’s Libretto W100 is an exceedingly expensive way to get dual LCD touchscreens in a clamshell device, so you’ll forgive us if we pay close attention to early unboxing reports to see if its worth the $1,400+ importers are currently asking. Wow Pow grabbed one of Conics early units and subjected it to a three-part video unboxing and review, which you can watch after the cut.
While Conics are charging more for their imported units than we’re expecting the US list price to be, they’re also switching over the Japanese-sourced notebooks to English. The hardware itself is unchanged: twin 7-inch 1024 x 600 capacitive touchscreens in a clamshell hinge that opens a full 180-degrees (i.e. flat on the table) and work in regular notebook orientation as well as side-by-side as an ereader.
Under the hood is Intel’s 1.2GHz Pentium U5400 paired with 2GB of RAM, a 64GB SSD and – on the model Conics are selling – integrated WiMAX along with the WiFi b/g/n and Bluetooth. Unfortunately the standard battery is only good for 2hrs runtime, though Conics are also throwing in the 4hr pack as well.
