It really does appear that Toshiba intends to rule the budget laptop market. The announcement of the Satelite CL10-B shows a laptop that is almost practically a smartphone. On the outside, it resembles a netbook; especially with the 11.6-inch display. However, the internals would beg to differ.
The big deal is the extremely limited internal storage. A mere 32GB is meant to support this laptop, and Toshiba qualifies this by marketing the Satelite CL10-B as a “cloud companion”. Ideally, this means that the intention is for this device to be used in a manner similar to the Chromebook. Although it may take an extremely ambitious line considering that Windows 8.1 takes quite a bit more space on the disk than Chrome OS.
Toshiba offsets the storage issues by providing customers 100GB of OneDrive cloud storage for two years; along with access to Microsoft Office Online for web based Excel, Word, and Power Point. Although Office Online is technically already free for everyone to use.
Powering the CL10-B is an Intel Celeron processor of unknown type and 2GB of RAM. Toshiba is retailing this laptop at GBP200 in the UK, with global availability and pricing still unknown.
