The Toshiba Encore is one of the first of the Baytrail-T PCs and one of the first of the 8-inch tablets. It falls under the Microsoft Small Screen program and therefore gets Office Home and Student, full version, included. At 480gm it should offer very consumer/consumption focused usage and the price, starting at 299 Euro, is extremely good.
