With recent models from Dell and Lenovo tablet laptop hybrids a la Surface are suddenly de rigeur. If those models are outside your budget, Toshiba has just introduced its own low-cost Windows 10 model, the Satellite Click 10. It weighs in at a scant 2.2 pounds and when you detach the keyboard, you've got a 0.36-inch (9 mm) thick, 1.2 pound tablet. Either way, you get features like a 10-inch 1,900 x 1,200 multi-touch display, front 8-megapixel and 2-megapixel rear cameras, 32GB or 64GB of SSD storage (expandable via a MicroSD slot), a Micro HDMI port for TV output and Dolby Digital Plus stereo speakers.

The fun stops there, however, as it only packs an Intel Atom x5 processor and 2GB of RAM. Power-wise, that makes it more tablet than laptop, so running Windows 10 may be a burden for it. However, the $349 price tag may overcome those objections, and the light weight, keyboard and Windows 10 should make it a decent tablet and viable laptop in a pinch, for less than many Android tablets.
