Toshiba historically has been know for building notebooks that perhaps aren't as thin and sleek as other machines but rather have a build quality and feature set that is best-of-class. On the tablet front, Toshiba's first effort with an Android-based 10-inch slate looks to be cut from the same cloth.
The Thrive doesn't make any apologies for its size and weight. It's built with very rugged construction and is designed to be full-featured. It's a tablet, so it's still relatively thin, but Toshiba took the stance that they would address some of the inherent limitations in many tablets already out there; most of which pertain to expandability and accessibility. You'll have to tolerate a slate that is just over half-an-inch thick and weighs a little over 1.5lbs. You wafer-thin types might be inclined to whine about that but we say suck-it-up and deal with it. The Thrive brings a bunch of extra utility, not just junk in the trunk...
