The Toshiba Encore 2 8 is the first of the 2014 Windows 8 tablets on the refreshed Baytrail-T platform which is said to be smaller and cheaper for manufacturers. Performance is comparable with early 2014 Windows 8 tablets. The Encore 2 is lighter than the original Encore 8-inch but there's no HDMI and only a 1-year Office 365 package included rather than a full Home and Student licence.
