If there are any fears about the potential of having a battery hungry quad-core processor, it’s put to rest as we’re able to easily obtain a single day of normal usage out of a full charge. However, power users will probably want to charge it nightly so that it’s at a usable level in the morning.


Above all, we have to admit that we truly love the direction that Toshiba has gone with this tablet, as it seemingly obliterated all remnants of the Toshiba Thrive from last year that has floated around in our heads. Donning a vastly better looking design combined with some muscle flexing hardware specs, there’s enough to like about the $450 priced Toshiba Excite 10. Indeed, it’s an exciting offering from Toshiba’s camp, but we’d still settle for a $500 Asus Transformer Prime any day of the week – mainly because the difference in price is justified by its killer design, convertible aspect, and better overall performance. Then again, some people won’t mind saving the $50 by settling with the Toshiba Excite 10 – so it’ll all depend on the circumstance.
