CES 2012: Toshiba 14-inch ultrabook prototype

1:44 /

One of the very first 14-inch ultrabooks, this still-unnamed Toshiba should hit stores in the second half of 2012.

Speaker: This is a 14 inch Ultrabook prototype that they have. So you'll see this later in the year hopefully and hopefully it'll look just like this, and again it's got the bigger screen. It's still pretty thin. It's not as thin as those 13 inches but what they're trying to do and trying to say, we could take that 13 inch Ultrabook and give it a 14 inch screen, later on we'll see some 15 inch screens and those become machines that you can use at work all day. A 13 inch, great traveling, great for that, you know, a couple of hours at the coffee shop, airport lounge or whatever but all day everyday you're not gonna use a 13. You need a 14 or a 15. So once you get up to this size, then you have something that's almost as thin and like that you can actually just use as your full time machine and that's what Ultrabook's up until now. I think, Scott would agree, have not been able to do. Speaker: I feel like I'm skeptical of that though. The idea that you have to have a 14 or 15 inch machine to work on, because... Speaker: Your hands will get tired, your eyes... Speaker: ...Desktop a monitor and a keyboard? Speaker: Oh then you gotta get like... these days, unplug stuff in, who does that? Speaker: Yeah that's true. I agree. It's a clunkier solution but at least for me it allows me to have a tiny laptop. Speaker: That's true. Speaker: I agree. I don't know if it's... I don't know necessarily where it's going to slide (and left?) to see. I think right now there's not... Also maybe... everybody knows what the Macbook Air is doing and it's just as simple as an Apple doesn't have a type of product the moment that it fits in to that category. So it'll go away and... you know, what is that exactly. Speaker: And there definitely are people who want the keyboard I think is probably a big part of having that bigger laptop. Speaker: That's the thing, the bigger keyboard. Yes. Speaker: And that's... Well this is a very Toshiba design sensibility that seems to be what they, you know, you got the differentiating queues like the HP Envy line, very design centric machines. Always have been. Really beautiful. Toshiba really does this brushed aluminum. We've seen that on some of their tablets and some of their other laptops and then of course Dell does... looking like a Macbook Air.
