Toshiba are the first major player in the laptop market to release a dual touch screen laptop. The Libretto W100, which is in between a laptop and a tablet and has most of the major capabilities of either device.

The outside clam shell of the Libretto W100 measures 202mm x 123mm x 30.7mm, Screen-wise, there are two 7-inch touch-enabled screens which are ready for you to poke at.

As for processing power, there is an Intel U5400 processor inside and 2GB RAM. This is complimented with 62GB SSD storage, 1x USB 2.0, MicroSD card reader, a 1MP HD webcam and battery life of up to 3.5 hours. Again all these specification are good in their own way but it is always let down in battery life, but I guess no one has been able to crack the battery life problems.

The chosen operating system for the Libretto W100 is the Windows Home Premium, with all the key touch features of Windows 7, dragging applications from screen to screen, but as always with Toshiba there is a bundle of their own software. There is optional 3G and Wi-Fi for all you’re on the move needs.

This being the first dual touch screen laptop, I wouldn’t go out and buy one because as with all first models there is going to be teething problems and I am sure it will get better as the products start flying out the factories.

With pricing to be confirmed, the Toshiba Libretto W100 has a UK release date of late summer.
