Toshiba has unveiled its first ultrabook laptop, a Windows 8 Pro-based device that doubles up as a tablet.

The Portege Z10T is being targeted at business users and comes with a wealth of innovative features, such as an Intel Core processor, a high-definition 11.6-inch screen and a spill-resistant keyboard.

It also boasts a number of advanced security options, including Anti-Theft software that lowers the risk of unwanted access and a Trusted Platform Module to safeguard sensitive data.

According to the manufacturer, the ultrabook is suited to business professionals who require a powerful, portable gadget that can easily adapt to different situations.
