Toshiba unveils new line of Ultrabooks and convertibles

Posted by Alan at 2:48 PM on February 6, 2013

Ultrabook is a popular word these days in the technology world — as much so as netbook was a couple of years ago. Toshiba unveiled its lineup at the recent Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas and it included some impressive designs in, not just Ultrabook, but also convertibles.

The video, which you can watch below, starts off with what the company terms as “the first 21 x 9 aspect ratio Ultrabook”. It also packs Harmon Kardon speakers — a name many of you home theater geeks (I am one of you) will know.

There is also a new 14.1 inch Ultrabook that packs a 500 GB HDD, as opposed to an SSD, which saves a bit on the cost, but is still thin and lightweight. The company also unveiled an Intel Core i9 convertible which can be slid to convert into a tablet.

Prices for these devices begin at $799 and range up from there. You can get more details on specs and availability in the video below.
