Review Toshiba Satellite U920t-100 Ultrabook

 

Ultra-Hybrid. Toshiba presents quite a few interesting Ultrabooks

Sturdy workmanship; Solid slide mechanism; Contrast & Black value; Viewing angle stability; Precise touchscreen; Temperature management

Dark display; Slack hinges; Tiny touchpad; Keyboard needs getting used to

The convertible class: Dell XPS 12, Sony Vaio Duo 11, Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13 and Asus Taichi 21. The upcoming Microsoft Surface with Windows 8 Pro will also belong to this class. Models, which use the Intel Atom CPUs, like the Samsung ATIV Smart PC...

Toshiba Satellite U920T review

 

Can Toshiba's hybrid take the market by storm?

Long battery ; Nice laptop design ; Decent connectivity ; Trackpad

Chunky ; Heavy ; Dull screen ; Lack of refinement

The hybrid laptop-tablet form factor has well and truly kicked off, and you'd be hard pressed to walk into your local electronics superstore and find a bog-standard laptop between the rows of flipping, sliding, swivelling, touchscreen, Windows 8 hybrids.

Toshiba Satellite U920T hybrid Ultrabook

 

This Windows 8 hybrid Ultrabook is a tablet that can be transformed into a laptop thanks to a sliding screen mechanism

Equally useful as a laptop or a tablet ; Full-sized HDMI ; Two USB 3.0 ports ; Good overall performance and battery life

Screen isn't Full HD ; Sliding mechanism can get tiring over time ; Takes a while to get used to the design ; Single-band Wi-Fi

Toshiba's U920T sliding-screen hybrid Ultrabook is a neat concept that takes some getting used to. It's a hybrid that's fun to use as a tablet and it works equally well as a notebook. However, we're not sure how well the screen's mechanism will last...

Toshiba Satellite U920t

 

An affordable Windows 8 sliding laptop/tablet hybrid with good battery life.

Relatively affordable ; Sturdy and pleasant to the touch ; Flexible specs with up to Core i5 and 8GB RAM ; Superior battery life to rivals ; Great speakers

Awkward sliding action ; Average typing experience and touchpad ; Bog-standard screen res with poor viewing angles for IPS ; No optional digitizer stylus

sibling, which is certainly no bad thing. Just like with the ultra-wide Ultrabook, the U920t has a textured soft-touch finish on its base and wrist-rest area. The former provides extra grip when this hybrid is parked on your lap and when carrying it...

Excellent design, but it has poor viewing angles and only adequate performance

Toshiba Satellite U920T review

 

At first, the Toshiba U920t looks like a regular tablet, albeit a large one at nearly 1.5kg in weight and 22mm in size. You can use Windows 8 via the 12.5in touchscreen, just like you would with the Microsoft Surface RT, another Windows 8 tablet.

The Toshiba U920T is certainly an interesting product. We haven't had long with it so we'll reserve judgement until we get it into the PC Advisor lab.
