Those Toshiba engineers really know their stuff. The Protege M780 (via Akihabara News) is one of the best looking and most powerful tabletbooks out there. This multitouch capable notebook is built to be tough. It has an accelerometer that helps the HDD brace for impact shock, a liquid-resistant keyboard, and a shock-resistant case that is good for up to 1 meter. It will weigh 2 kg, which is a bit heavy but not terrible.

The M780 comes with either an Intel Core i3 or i5 CPU and up to 8 GB of DDR3 1066 MHz RAM. It packs a 2.5" HDD that can also be swapped out for an SSD. The screen is a 12" LED-backlit HD TruBriteTouch display with a resolution of 1200x800p. It packs a DVD Super Multi-drive, b/g/n WLAN, Bluetooth 2.1, and Windows 7. No information on pricing is out yet, but this is expected to launch in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa in Q2 2010. Hopefully a U.S. release won't be far behind.
