Toshiba has always been a reliable and dependable brand in the world of mobile computing. And with new powerful tablet PCs and notebooks in the market today, what makes Toshiba stand out is of course its brand name which has been a familiar one for the past decade.
And while Toshiba is sure to get its share of buyers who prefer their brand, they have made sure by boosting the actual processors with Centrino technology. They have actually announced three new tablet PCs, all based on the M750 model and offering Intel Core 2 Duo processors, LED backlit displays and standard WiFi a/g/n.
The Toshiba Portégé M750-S7211, Portégé M750-S7212 and Portégé M750-S7213 have 2GB of DDR2 memory, 160GB hard-drives (5,400rpm in the case of the S7211, 7,200rpm in the other two versions) and a 12.1-inch XGA display with digital pen input.
“Administrators, teachers and students can feel confident with their computer purchase as Toshiba delivers the Portégé M750 with full performance processors, upmost security, functional features and generous warranty coverage,” said Carl Pinto, vice president of Product Development & Marketing, Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc., Digital Products Division. “Additionally, the Portégé M750 series is among the greenest available with its EnergyStar 4.0 and RoHS Compliance and its Gold EPEAT rating.”
The trend in the market today as far as buying computers is going miniature. We have seen the introduction of new miniature desktops to which the demand for them is getting higher. But should this be a cause for alarm for most desktop manufacturers? Apparently there is a difference but what are the chances that the traditional desktop user would turn towards these compact computers for a change?
The answer lies on where a computer would be used and who will actually use it. For example, in the modern offices of today, it is highly unlikely you will see the traditional employee working with tablet PCs. Also, for the hardworking programmers and developers, the use of desktops is still the way to go considering that they need visualization and better control when creating programs.
The same holds true for graphics designers who are sure to prefer desktops when creating images. In all, it all boils down to use and power of the PC. Tablets can be used for navigation or perhaps entertainment. They are not designed for professional undertaking and that is something we all know. While we cannot discount tablet PCs from advancing through the years, who knows how modern computing will be by that time?
Hence, PC tablets should not even be considered by the modern IT personnel for professional use. The best that they can offer is migration of finished documents or presentation files for easy handling. But when it comes to actual work, desktops are still the bet for working wiser.
