This is the Toshiba Excite Pure. It's Toshiba's entry level tablet. Comes with a Tegra 3 processor; will retail for $299, and includes 16 gigabytes of storage. It also includes a pure version of Android 4.2.2; also has an 1280x800 IPS screen. Ports include a micro USB port, as well as micro HDMI and a micro SD card port. Obviously, volume rocker and headphone jack, speakers on the side here. There's also a front-facing 1.2 megapixel camera. The tablet has a 10-inch screen and feels fairly plastic in build. Look for the Excite Pure in late June for $299 with 16 gigabytes of storage. I'm Eric Franklin, and this has been a first look at the Toshiba Excite Pure.
A low price and 10-inch screen isn't enough to save the Excite Pure from its dated specs.
In addition to its Tegra 3 processor and 32GB storage capacity, the Toshiba Excite 13 sports a whopping 13.3-inch screen to boot.
Toshiba's first 7-inch Android tablet keeps many of the best features found in their 10-inch model, including an impressive high definition screen.
With a 13-inch screen the Toshiba Excite may push the boundaries of when a tablet is too big.
There's nothing wrong with this new 14-inch ultrabook...but there's nothing that exciting, either. From price to features, it's all pretty gray for this steel-colored laptop.
Toshiba will this year release both its Excite Pro and Write tablets. Each features Tegra 4 and 2,560x1,600 resolutions.
The Kirabook's biggest selling point is its high-res screen. Far beyond 1,920x1,080, this is instead a 2,560x1,440-pixel-resolution display (called PixelPure), putting it firmly in the territory of the MacBook Pro with Retina Display. Of course, that also includes MacBook-Pro-like prices, with the Kirabook running from $1,599 to $1,999.
The Toshiba Excite 10 includes some useful features, but may price itself out of most user's "to buy" list.
Toshiba's Excite tablet family includes a 10.1- and 13.3-inch(!) model, but only the 7.7-inch version has the AMOLED screen.
This midpriced 15-inch Toshiba Satellite has a few nice higher-end features, but its AMD processor makes it feel like a budget performer.
Toshiba Excite Pure Review
The good: The Toshiba Excite Pure has a Micro-HDMI port and a microSD slot, so you can add up to 64GB of additional storage space. It’s also one of the cheapest 10-inch tablets on the market at $299.
The bad: The tablet's physical display has an outdated resolution, limited viewing angles, and washed-out colors. The older Tegra 3 processor and 1GB of RAM make the Excite Pure sluggish.
The bottom line: The Toshiba Excite Pure is one of the cheapest 10-inch tablets out there at $300, but even at that price, it's too expensive for the experience it offers.Read full review
