Improvements in the GPU will also be noticable over Baytrail (2013) Atom devices. With a digitizer and a range of accessories, 4G options and a starting price of $499 this should be a successful ultra-mobile PC.

Stereo speakers, micro USB, microSD and headset ports are included and on the 10-inch version you'll find an micro HDMI port. The Encore 2 Write tablets come with an 8MP camera which, if it's as good as the cam on the original Toshiba Encore, should be enough for some good snaps, business cards, whitebooards and the like. Toshiba are including their TruCapture software to help clean-up some of those captures. There's a GPS included in the package which is going to help put location tags on your notes and images and the sensor pack also includes a digital compass.

|Ramos i10 pro, 10.1 inch, 635 grams (1.4 lbs)|

Basic 2GB RAM and 32GB storage should be enough for casual use and with an included HDMI port and one year Office 365 the desktop could suit some as a short term desktop.
