Sometimes, as many leaks as occur in the blogosphere, a new device can still come out of left field. Consider the Libretto W100 a case in point. In honor of 25 years making laptops, Toshiba dusted off a legendary brand, their Libretto series of ultra-light notebooks. They did a similar stunt to celebrate the 20th anniversary when they released the Libretto U100, however that 80s throwback didn’t hold a candle to the glory that is the W100.
Dual 7 inch multitouch screens, 6 styles of virtual keyboard, Windows 7, 64GB SSD…this may be the device that so many concept machines over the last year have dreamt of being. The best part is that Toshiba isn’t just trotting these around to the trade shows, showing them off safely under glass….they are going to be actually SELLING these in limited quantities.
There is one small problem however….the price. IF you can find one to buy (no word yet on how “limited” those limited quantities will be), it will set you back a cool thousand dollars.
I admit it, if I had the chance to buy one…I would be sorely tempted. Now if HP would just make an anniversary Jornada.
