The Toshiba DynaPad Takes Aim At Microsoft's Surface
Microsoft's lineup of Surface models has been the paramount of hybrid success. Redmond's devices have easily perfected the tablet-keyboard formula, combining portability, usability and power in one ultra thin package. With that said, manufacturers are eager to emulate the success and craft their own hybrids that are reminiscent of the Surface family, and Toshiba is one of the latest companies to cough up its offering to compete with Microsoft's venerable device. Meet the DynaPad, a 12-inch hybrid that Toshiba claims is the lightest in its kind, and it also comes with capable hardware to boot.
The DynaPad only weighs 1.28lbs and features a rock-solid build paired with quite a luxurious design. It comes with a carbon fiber frame with a rubber paint coating, making it easier to grip than what 12-inch slates make it to be. It also features rounded corners that are mixed with strong, flat edges.
As far as the specifications go, the DynaPad features an Intel Atom chipset paired with 4GB of RAM. It comes with 64GB of internal storage, and based on the images, it comes with a microSD card slot should users find it paltry for their needs. It's also equipped with a 12-inch display with Full HD resolution.
Toshiba equipped the DynaPad with a pressure-sensitive pen that is made by Wacom. It's capable of registering 2,048 levels of pressure sensitivity. What's more, it even comes with a special coating on top of the screen to improve the friction levels, making it seem like the user is writing on paper instead of a screen.
As far as the pricing goes, Toshiba's DynaPad carries a US$650 price tag. In perspective, Microsoft's Surface 3 comes with a starting US$499 price tag, making it US$151 cheaper than what Toshiba is offering. However, Toshiba already bundles the DynaPad with keyboard, which doesn't come free with the Surface and is worth US$130. Plus, it only comes with half the memory Toshiba is currently offering with the DynaPad.
