Toshiba's Encore Mini is touted as offering a full Windows PC experience in a 7in form factor. The question is: why would you want a full Windows PC experience in such a small device?
At $120 (£99 in the UK) this is pretty much a no-frills tablet featuring a 1,024x600-pixel-resolution multitouch display, a quad-core 1.83GHz Intel Atom processor, integrated graphics, and 16GB of internal storage.
This model has a 7.0-inch diagonal LCD display, with a WSVGA (1024 x 600) resolution. This is, realistically, the weakest feature of the tablet. Colors are muddy and fonts look jagged.
There's an Intel AtomTM Z3745 quad-core processor inside clocked at 1.3GHz, paired with 1GB RAM and Intel HD graphics, which is actually pretty decent for a budget 7in tablet but still doesn't make us like this tablet.
