Asus isn’t the only company launching a portable Windows notebook with the kind of specs you’d expect from a Chromebook.
The Toshiba Satellite CL10-B is an 11.6 inch notebook with an 11.6 inch display, 2GB of RAM, and 32GB of eMMC solid state storage. The notebook weighs 2.4 pounds, measures about 0.8 inches thick, and should sell for around €260 in Europe.
There aren’t currently any plans to offer this laptop in the United States.
Toshiba’s new laptop features a 1366 x 768 pixel display, Windows 8.1 with Bing software, and an Intel Celeronor Pentium Bay Trail processor with Intel HD graphics.
It also has a touchscreen, which may help explain why it’s a bit more expensive than the Asus EeeBook X205.
The Toshiba Satellite CL10-B has HDMI output, a USB 3.0 port, a USB 2.0 port, an SD card reader, 802.11n WiFi, and Bluetooth 4.0.
Toshiba plans to bring the notebook to market during the 4th quarter of 2014.
Blogger Steve Pain got to spend some time the CL10-B at the IFA show in Berlin and reports that the display has poor viewing angles, but that the notebook could be an interesting option given its low price tag.
