With a product touted as the world’s slimmest and lightest 10-inch tablet before you, your first reaction is to note the record attributes. A depth of just 0.3 inches and a weight of merely 1.23 pounds are very impressive aspects indeed. Almost immediately, though, an overriding apprehension grips you: Will the device skimp on overall performance as a result? Thus is the interesting case of the sleek Toshiba Excite 10 LE tablet. Only a detailed hands-on review will determine whether buyers should truly get their hands on the device. Looks and Design In the appearance stakes, expectedly, the Excite 10 LE is a winner all the way. The chassis is a smart amalgamation of silvery magnesium alloy and lustrous ridged plastic imparting an upmarket look to the tablet. Owing to its nearly skeletal dimensions and heft, the tablet is exceedingly comfortable to hold and operate, even with one hand. Even so, the construction feels solid enough with no tangible creaks and hollowness.
