In case you worked in an department with mid 1990’s, the odds are you used a toshiba libretto. Originally released in 1996, the first libretto versions were compact, lightweight and ideal for travel, proving successful enough to enjoy a healthy five-year run like a top executive model.
Today, those initial toshiba libretto products can roughly be viewed as proto-pc tablets, making the re-birth of the libretto much more tantalising and exciting.
Subsequent discontinuation in 2001, re-release in 2005 and enduring reputation ever since, the wise Women and Gents at Toshiba have released a brand new libretto, one that reminds all those whipper snappers who’s boss!
With a bold new design (that pays a number of bold homages to the initial), touchscreen functionality and 2 high-level presentation viewers, the new toshiba libretto is comprehensively modern, yet consists of sufficient ‘classical’ design nods as to bring a nostalgic tear to an eye of even a very stoic user, (avoiding the occasional vapidity of contemporary design in practise).
The old adage “you’ll never truthfully know where you’re going, until you understand where you have been” is very true in the case of the popular libretto, a device that admittedly has one foot in the past, but one that is also resolutely dealing with the upcoming.
