Toshiba hopped on the portable notebook/tablet hybrid with the launch of the Satellite Click series of 2-in-1 devices last year. The Toshiba Satellite Click looks like a 13.3 inch notebook, but you can remove the keyboard and use the device as a tablet. With a list price of around $600, the Click Series is also reasonably affordable (and you can also find models going for even lower prices).

Unfortunately the Click is hampered by a relatively slow AMD A4 processor and a 1366 x 768 pixel display.

Now it looks like Toshiba has a new 13 inch 2-in-1 with a faster CPU and higher-resolution display.

Toshiba P30W

Th new model is called the Toshiba Satellite P30W, and it’s a 13.3 inch 2-in-1 ultrabook. The Windows 8.1 tablet is powered by an Intel Core i5-4210U dual-core Haswell processor with Intel HD 4400 graphics. It has a 1920 x 1080 pixel touchscreen display, 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, and up to 7 hours of battery life.

Mobile Geeks spotted a listing for the Satellite P30W at Amazon Germany, where the computer is described as having 4GB of RAM and a 256GB solid state drive. There’s no word on whether a cheaper 128GB model will be available, but this version appears to have a price tag of about 999 Euros.

The keyboard base appears to be super-slim near the front, but there’s a chunky bit in the back which houses full-sided ports including an HDMI port and 2 USB ports.

There’s no word on if or when we’ll see this model in other countries.

  1. The Click wasnt hampered by the a4-1200, it was hampered by a bad and cheap design.

    1. The A4-1200 is a very low performance SoC… You’re not getting much more out of it than you would have the previous Brazos Ontario C-50… It’s limited to only running up to 1GHz, is only dual core, and the GPU is the lowest clocked of all the Temash models…

      All of which is why it also has the lowest TDP and can be put into fan-less tablet designs but it is definitely well behind the performance of a Core i5…

      1. I wasnt doughting the performance of the a4 being low. I was trying to state that the original design of the click was bad, the screen/tablet was all plastic (cheap feel) and was as bulky as the surface pro, the keyboard/dock is very heavy and its weight is completly lopsided plus the connector for the dock to tablet is a cheap push back switch that doent lock half the time.

        The new design looks far better but does cost alot, they probably could have done this with the AMD version if they were not so cheap.

        1. Appearance and build quality are contributing factors but Brad was right in indicating the A4-1200 was a performance hampering factor…

          Mind, AMD’s Temash SoCs also didn’t yet support proper mobile device optimization support… So features like Connected Standby/InstantGo, etc weren’t supported and that meant the system could not easily reduce power consumption to the microwatt range without going into S3 suspend/sleep state and pretty much do nothing…

          System designs also still primarily used regular laptop parts instead of mobile parts… and that generally means higher system costs for the system maker…

          So, with the general low price point these were intended for it did make it hard for system makers to put that much effort into designing those systems without raising the price too high…

          AMD has a much better chance with their newer Mullins that finally starts supporting proper mobile power optimization and promises up to 250% the graphical performance of Bay Trail…

          Though, AMD is still apparently not committed to the mobile market and that may hurt them if the traditional PC market continues to decline and Intel keeps on improving the range of its offerings…

    1. But that’s in Europe where they have to pay VAT… If it makes it to the US then it should be quite a bit less…

      1. most of the time you can convert usd to euro 1:1.. at least in electronics pricing

          1. if a device is 999 usd, it will probably be 999 euro. at least nowadays… it used to be worse, fx apple and such. but my guess would be, if the p30w is 999 in euro, it will be 999 usd for the same model.

          2. I fully agree. I was questioning JB82’s suggestion of a 1:2 conversion

          3. Probably thinking of how the actual value of the price differs to each other…

            Since 999 Euro = $1383.76 US Dollar… Means that if they sell it for $999 in the US then that’s nearly a 1:2 difference for what is actually being paid in both regions.

            After all, 1 USD = 0.72 EUR and they have to pay VAT on top of that as well…

            So, if you were in Europe and wanted to buy this with US dollars then you would be paying a lot more than you would be paying for the same product in the US…

            It’s not quite 1:2 difference but it’s pretty close… However, unless you’re importing or purchasing while traveling abroad then we can treat it as 1:1 for local currency…
