Two laptops running Celeron-branded Baytrail-M processors have been spotted for sale in Germany. The Toshiba Satellite NB10t runs the 2.0Ghz dual-core N2810 (7.7W TDP) while the Packard Bell Easy Note ME69 runs with a cheaper 1.4Ghz dual-core N2805 (4.5W TDP.) Prices are interesting, especially considering they have touchscreens.

 

For the 10-inch Packard Bell you’ll pay just 299 Euro. it weighs 1.08KG and comes with 2BG RAM, 1366×768 touch, 28Wh battery, Windows 8.1 and Office Home and Student. That’s really not a bad price.

The Toshiba is likely to be the more productive though as it takes the screen size to 11.6-inches and includes 4GB RAM. It also includes the 2.0Ghz dual-core CPU.  Weight is 1.3KG and it costs a little more: 369 Euro-400 Euro. There’s no Office software included.

Remember you’re getting USB3.0 and SATA-interfaces for the drives on Baytrail-M. The CPU has 64-bit support but you’re getting 32-bit Windows. It’s technically possible that these devices could support Connected Standby / InstantGo but with a spinning hard drive inside both, it’s not within the required specs. SSD upgrade and BIOS hack anyone?

Intel are expecting low-cost 2-in-1’s to appear with Baytrail-M. When we see performance and efficiency figures for these two laptops we’ll get an idea of how those 2-in-1’s will perform. That should come when these devices become available in November. The HP Pavilion X2 2-in-1 is one of the first expected with Baytrail-M. We’re not expecting that before Christmas though.
