Toshiba Satellite Click 2 (part II):

Written by Sean Holmes

It would have made a lot of sense to keep the inputs located on the laptop base, as you probably won’t be plugging in a mouse or hooking it to a TV while your hands are busy holding the device and tapping on the touch screen.

Specifications:

It weighs around in at 4.85 pounds. The Click 2 is one of the heaviest convertible laptops even compared to equally sized, 4.2 pound Asus Transformer Book Tx300. The Asus is even thinner measuring 13.30 x 9.40 x 1 inches while the Toshiba’s dimensions are 9.10 x 13 x 1 inches. Unsurprisingly the 11.6-inch Lenovo Yoga 2 11 is the smallest hybrid, measuring 11.7 x 8.12 x 0.67 inches and weighing 3.19 pounds. Its CPU is measured around 2.16GHz Intel Pentium N3530 Processor (2MB cache, up to 2.58 GHz with Turbo Boost). This laptop comprises of an upgraded version of Intel HD Graphics with RAM of about 4GB DDR3L and running on 1600MHz. The screen is about 13.3-inch approx 1366×768 with LED Backlit and 10-point Touch screen IPS Display.

When it comes to storage, Click 2 has storage of about 500GB HDD (5400rpm, Serial ATA). Also, Ports1 x USB 2.0, 1 x USB 3.0, mini-HDMI, headphone and microphone combo jack, Kingston lock, AC adapter along with SD card slot. Connectivity-wise, it comes with Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 3160 with Bluetooth 4.0 which is somehow incredible. With the camera resolution of HD 720p along with a webcam, it weighs around 4.85 pounds and comes in an efficient size of about 9.10 x 13 x 1 inches (W x D x H)

This is the only configuration the Toshiba Satellite Click 2 comes in other than the higher-end Pro version made with an aluminum body. The Click 2 has been on sale for a while and as a result it can be picked for a cool $499 (about £310, AU$569) at Best Buy.

The Lenovo Yoga 2 11 also goes for an affordable $499 (about £310, AU$569) on Amazon as well. The Lenovo hybrid also matches the Toshiba with the same Pentium N3530 CPU and 8GB of RAM, plus the a little speed boost and the credit goes to the 500GB hybrid drive with an 8GB SSD cache. Asus Transformer Book TX300 by comparison is in a whole other class of premium; equipped with a Ivy Bridge Intel Core i7 3517U processor and a 128GB SSD on top of its 500GB hard drive, this suave aluminum hybrid can be had for $1,099 at tiger-Direct (about £683, AU$1,254).

With a Pentium processor tucked under the Click 2’s thick display you should not really expect much performance at all. In fact, the laptop might chug heavily the moment you patch it in all the Windows 8.1 updates. However, once you will get the laptop running up to speed with the latest software, it will be a smooth sailing experience from there. The hybrid will prove to be spunky and will do a fair job of running Adobe Light-room as well as playing Hearthstone on medium settings.
