Toshiba Satellite AC100 Smartbook Gets Hands-On Video Preview, Impressions
The Toshiba Satellite AC100 might not be headed to U.S. shores any time soon, but if you’re up for feeling some gadget envy by proxy, Netbooknews’s Peter Cartwright spent some time with the AC100 and posted some hands-on impressions today.
Cartwright was a fan of the AC100′s hardware, praising the netbook’s build quality in particular. However, his biggest problem came from having Android on a netbook–the article mentions that using a mouse in Android’s touch-friendly user environment was problematic and that the operating system lacked a lot of basic mouse-based functionality.
Toshiba does say that the AC100 should get seven hours of battery life, which puts it at a similar level with the rest of the netbook’s components. Internally, the Ac100 features Android 2.1 and it’s powered by a 1-GHz Intel Atom processor.
