PC Magazine’s Cisco Cheng continues to highlight Tablet PCs, this time examining Toshiba’s M400 Core Duo Tablet PC, with integrated Verizon EV-DO.
I believe that convertible tablets, with their hybrid capabilities, will continue to saturate the market. The Toshiba PortÃƒÂ©gÃƒÂ© M400-S4032 not only addresses the demand for wider network coverage with its integration of Verizon EV-DO wireless, but thanks to its new Intel Core Duo processor, it can also hold its own in the Tablet PC arena.
I’m using a Toshiba M400 Core Duo right now and it is indeed a nice machine – integrated CD / DVD, 1400 x 1050 resolution, Core Duo, etc. That said, I’m becoming less enthralled with Toshiba units as time goes on, especially when I begin to use other Tablet PCs with much better screens. Every Toshiba I’ve owned has had a grainy screen, and it is becoming quite bothersome to my eyes. At least with the M200, you could remove the grainy coating. You can’t remove the grainy coating on the M400.
By the way, keep on the look-out in the next week for a Hardware InkShow on Toshiba’s Tecra M7.
