Toshiba'Libretto W100 laptop, which garnered a lot of buzz earlier this summer with its dual-screen design, is now available in the United States. But for a little notebook, it sure has a big price to pay.

The clamshell-style computer boasts dual 7-inch diagonal multi-touch WSVGA displays with several different virtual keyboards. Thus, users can alternate between using the W100 as an e-book reader or for productivity. With Wireless-N and Bluetooth 2.1 technology plus its handheld size, it's an incredibly portable product that seems most appropriate when traveling, either for business or leisure.

Additionally, with the built-in webcam and microphone, you could turn it into one big Zack Morris-esque cell phone. Just a thought.

Some of the other notable specs on the Libretto W100 include:

  • Intel Pentium U5400 processor
  • Windows 7 Home Premium
  • Integrated Intel HD graphics
  • 2GB of DDR3 memory
  • 62GB solid state drive
  • Memory card reader
  • 8-cell battery

Pricing starts at $1,099.99. Remember, this Toshiba product is only on a limited run, so if you want one, act fast.

  • 7" is too small

    I wouldn't buy anything smaller than 10".

  • WAY too expensive.

    I bought a Lenovo s10-3t tablet, with a little less power but more capacity... and it was 398 on walmart.com. 1099 = too pricey.

      I believe that shouldn't be a problem as I think there's an emulator for Windows.

    As far as the price, it would be fair to point out that the Intel Pentium U5400 processor is significantly faster than the fastest Intel Atom processor and both the RAM and SSD are more than you would find on most netbooks.

    Buyer beware. Toshiba does not honor its warranty agreements.

      Thats strange I have had numerous Toshia products including 3 laptops and have not had any problems with warranty on the very few times it was needed. I gave 2 of the laptops to my kids. which is why I had to buy the third(or maybe I just wanted it).
