Toshiba Encore

 

Toshiba's first 8-inch Windows 8.1 tablet based on an Intel Bay Trail is a real let down.

Full access to Microsoft Office ; Great battery life ; Decent 8-megapixel main camera

Extremely buggy performance ; Slow loading times ; Desktop Windows mode difficult to use

But the real problem with the Toshiba Encore's screen if its responsiveness, or lack thereof. At times just selecting apps or trying to skip back a web page proves problematic. Even the lock screen struggles to register screen presses at times. It's a...

Toshiba's new 7-inch Encore is a familiar-looking budget Windows tablet

 

Unveiled at the Microsoft keynote at Computex 2014, the 7-inch Encore is basically the company's Android-based Excite tablet running Windows.

The first compact Windows 8 tablet we'd seriously consider buying, packing in usable performance and a generous software bundle for a very tempting price

Toshiba Encore

 

The Toshiba Encore, the company's first 8-inch Windows tablet, looks pretty good with solid performance, decent battery life, and an affordable price.

Solid performance from fourth-generation Atom processor. Has 32GB of internal storage. Clear, responsive touch display. Decent battery life.

Limited port selection.

Conclusion The Toshiba Encore isn't the first 8-inch Windows tablet we've seen, nor is it the best of the bunch, but this little tablet still manages to offer solid performance, nearly nine hours of battery life, and comes in at a very affordable...

Limited port selection

Laptops have always been portable and Windows-based hybrids and tablets have begun to offer more mobility than laptops past, but even the lightest 13- or 14-inch system is a bit too big to really use when you're walking down the street or hopping into...

Review: Toshiba Encore

 

The Toshiba Encore marks the company's first foray into the Windows 8 compact-tablet market and, on paper at least, it gets off to a strong start. The Encore comes with Windows 8.1, a Bay Trail Atom processor and Microsoft Office Home & Student 2013...

A bargain for the power and software.
