Toshiba reveals new Windows 8.1 products, including 8-inch Encore 2 tablet for $199

A month after Toshiba started selling its Windows 8.1 Satellite P55t notebook with its 3840x2160 resolution display, the company has announced a bunch of upcoming products running on Microsoft's latest OS. They include two new tablet-notebook hybrids, a laptop with a 360 degree display hinge and two new tablet models.

The company's new tablet, Encore 2, will be sold in 8-inch and 10.1-inch models, with pricing of the 8-inch version starting at $199.99 and the 10.1-inch version at $269.99. Both tablets have a display resolution of 1280x800, along with a quad-core Intel Atom processor. Both will also have a free one-year subscription to Microsoft's Office 365 Personal, a $69.99 value, when they go on sale in July.

Toshiba has also revealed plans to release the Satellite Click 2 and Satellite Click 2 Pro. Both have 13.3-inch displays that can detach from their keyboards to be used as stand alone tablets. The Click 2 has a quad-core Intel Pentium processor and a 1366x768 display and will have a starting price of $586.99. The regular Click 2 Pro, priced starting at $1,028.99, has an Intel Core processor and a full HD display. Toshiba will also sell another version of the Click 2 Pro, priced at $1,279.99, with a keyboard base that also serves as a second battery, along with an extra 500GB hard drive in addition to the 128GB SSD in the display. All of the Click 2 notebooks will go on sale in June.

Finally, there's the new Toshiba Satellite Radius laptop, which has a display that can be moved 360 degrees much like the models in Lenovo's Yoga line. The notebook, with its 15.6-inch display, can be configured with Intel's Core i5 or i7 processors inside along with up to 8GB of RAM and up to 1 TB of hard drive space. It will go on sale in early July for the starting price of $925.99.
