We recently got chance to check out some concept laptops and tablets from Toshiba, all built around Windows 8. Today, Toshiba is unveiling those systems at Computex, as a sneak peek at the company's road map for Microsoft's upcoming operating system.

Toshiba describes the system as:

  • A Windows 8 ultrabook convertible designed in partnership with Intel
  • A touch-screen Windows RT clamshell PC
  • A Windows RT tablet with keyboard dock

Below, check out a few shots we snapped of the systems in question. The versions we saw were nonworking mockups, and there's no guarantee these exact models will ever make it to stores.

Toshiba, for its part, says, "At this point, we will not be providing any additional information or specs on these products."
