by Reads (9,055)

Toshiba has just released their ninth generation Tablet PC, the Portege M700. The M700 is an updated version of it’s predecessor, the ever so popular Portege M400. It will sport a T7500 Core 2 Duo processor, have a 12.1" widescreen indoor/outdoor display with touch capabilities and is Microsoft Vista or XP compatible.

The Portege M700 is being marketed toward business professionals and I can see why. It is loaded with features including a webcam, a main 6-cell battery and a parallel battery for a supposed combined battery life of nine hours and an optical drive. Everything a user could want is packed into this small tablet.

Toshiba Portege M700 Tablet PC specs:

  • Core 2 Duo 2.2GHz T7500 processor
  • 160GB hard drive
  • 1GB or 2GB RAM options
  • 12.1” WXGA (1280×800) LED backlit LCD display with both touchscreen and digital pen/ink capabilities
  • 802.11a/g/n, Gigabit Ethernet
  • Full Suite of Toshiba 3rd Generation EasyGuard Technology
  • Shock absorbing design
  • Hard drive protection and LCD display protection
  • Spill resistant keyboard
  • DVD Super Multi Drive
  • Two Sleep and Charge USB ports
  • PC Card Slot
  • IEEE 1394
  • Integrated webcam
  • Fingerprint reader
  • 6-cell Lithium-Ion battery (claimed 5 hour life)

I personally can’t wait to get my hands-on the M700, so we can bring you a complete review. Hopefully, that will happen soon. Then the battery life and performance features can be tested. I would like to see how durable and solid the chassis is as well. From the looks of it, the M700 has a nice sleek design.
