CES 2015: Toshiba’s new Satellite Click Mini is a laptop and tablet in one

Toshiba’s new Satellite Click Mini, which the company announced this week at CES, fits a laptop and tablet into one 22.6 cm (8.9”) device. Made to be carried around, it’s light and portable (9.8 mm thin when used as a tablet alone) and designed to be a good fit for students, children, or anyone who wants Windows at their fingers at every second of the day.

There’s a 1920 x 1200 pixel display so photos and films look super crisp, and users should get up to 16 hours of video playback when the keyboard’s docked – around 8 when used as a tablet. It has an intelligent charging system that prioritises the tablet first, so you don’t have to wait too long before using it again.

When it comes to making your own content, there’s a 5 MP auto focus, rear-facing camera for taking photos or 1080p videos, plus an HD front-facing webcam for video chats. Toshiba’s not divulging price details quite yet, but the Smart White Pearl model will be on sale in the UK in the first quarter of 2015, with the Satin Gold version hitting shelves later in the year.
