Toshiba Excite 10 LE: The World's Thinnest 10" Tablet
Performance Summary and Final Thoughts
The Toshiba Excite 10 LE has a lot of good things going for it, including its thin and lightweight design as well as its attractive magnesium alloy casing. At just 0.3-inches thick, Toshiba says the Excite 10 LE is currently the world's thinnest 10-inch Android tablet. Although we wouldn't be surprised if other manufacturers will challenge that title soon, Toshiba's Excite 10 LE has the boasting rights for now.

While we appreciate the look and feel of the Excite 10 LE, we also place a lot of weight on a tablet's overall performance. The Excite 10 LE performed well in all of our benchmark tests, but it never topped the charts. In real-world testing, the Excite 10 LE was responsive and we had no complaints about the tablet's overall performance, however.
With so many different tablet options available today, it can be hard to decide on one tablet over another. The Excite 10 LE's thin design, micro HDMI port, Android 4.0, and a magnesium alloy casing help set this tablet apart from others in the market. The Excite 10 LE's price tag is right in line with competing offerings as well, as are its available storage options (16GB and 32GB).

All in all, the Excite 10 LE is a great tablet that we'd have no problem recommending to a friend, but it's not a tablet that stands out in terms of performance or price. If you're considering a good-looking, lightweight tablet that offers all of the current technologies on the market today, however, the Excite 10 LE is a competent option.
