Dedicated to use with Windows 7, Toshiba has just announced the upcoming release of its Satellite U500 in a tactile version.

Equipped with the new Intel range

Its 13.3 inch screen (16/10 1280 x 800 pixels) therefore incorporates a touchscreen layer to benefit from these native features in Windows 7. The rest of the computer remains classic apart from the integration of the new ranges of processors Intel Core i3 and Core i5: 500 GB hard drive, 4 GB RAM, memory card reader and CEC compatible HDMI.

It remains to ask the question of the usefulness of a double input device (keyboard + touch screen). Not sure if the user will want to reach out to scroll through a page in their word processor. Available during the first quarter, the Satellite U500 touchscreen will be sold at a public price of 999 euros.
