How Much?

Since the Toshiba 5-in-1 laptop concept is still pretty much a concept (although a fully working prototype has been introduced to the public), no announcements regarding pricing and availability have been made yet.

Who Would Buy This?

Multi-tasking is now a way of life, whether at work or in school. The Toshiba 5-in-1 laptop concept fits that lifestyle completely, by offering a lot of possible functions in one attractive package. This will definitely be a big hit among students, professionals, and those who make a living – or spend much of their time – tinkering with computers and similar devices.

Things We Like

We like that this concept will “perform a number of roles”. Not only will you have a standard laptop, you can also have a portable notebook, then convert it into a tablet. If you’re feeling like an artist and you want to draw, set it up, with its digitizer and stylus, to become a “canvas”. Today, people watch as much videos on their computers as they do on their traditional television screens. With the Toshiba 5-in-1 laptop concept, you can do your own TV or video viewing by shifting it into Presentation/TV mode.

Just think of the savings you can have with this unit. When, in theory, you’d have spent on a laptop and a tablet separately, you no longer have to, since this convertible unit fills those two units, and even offers more modes!

Harmon Kardon speakers are some of the best out there today, so using them for the Toshiba 5-in-1 laptop concept is also a great plus in its favor.

Things We Don’t Like

The Toshiba 5-in-1 laptop concept is quite dense, weighing somewhere between 4 to 4.5 lbs. However, Toshiba is working on making it lighter without sacrificing any of the features.


Since this is still at its concept stage, information on warranty and guarantees are not yet available.

Is It Worth The Money?

No price has been announced yet, so it’s hard to tell if this is worth the money. However, considering that you get a 5-in-1 laptop, it is highly likely that this is one expense you won’t hesitate making, much less regret.

Where Can I Buy?

Toshiba is sure to make this available in its stores once the design is finalized and it undergoes mass production. Sites such as Amazon are also expected to offer the Toshiba 5-in-1 laptop concept once it is released. One advantage of getting this unit from them is the discount that Amazon is sure to apply to its price, as well as its Free Shipping promo.

Final Thoughts

Once in a while, you come across one machine that will solve all your needs in one fell swoop. The Toshiba 5-in-1 laptop concept promises to be that one machine, so keep your eyes and ears peeled for the time that it’s finally released.
