IRVINE, Calif. – May 27, 2014 Toshiba’s Digital Products Division (DPD), a division of Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc., today unveiled a pair of next generation 2-in-1 detachable PCs – the Satellite® Click 2 and Satellite Click 2 Pro. Each features a 13.3-inch removable display, runs on Windows® 8.1 and enables a seamless transition from a full-featured laptop to a convenient tablet for home users, students and mobile workers.
“We’ve developed two amazing detachables – one that delivers solid, everyday performance at a great price and another that features a premium performance configuration that the category has been missing. Yet both give consumers the productivity benefits of a laptop and the convenience and battery life of a tablet in one device,” said Philip Osako, senior director of product marketing, Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc., Digital Products Division
