Toshiba’s Satellite U920T is the latest Windows 8 hybrid device designed to attract business users who want the full legacy experience, not just a cutdown mobile OS.The Toshiba Satellite U920T isn’t the best hybrid device out there. It does offer more functionality than the Surface RT, but is simply too heavy to be used a tablet as you cannot undock the keyboard.

Review: Toshiba Satellite U920T Ultrabook
Source: Reg Hardware English
The Toshiba Satellite U920T is a very likable convertible Ultrabook, although it took me a while to realise why. The reason, I'd say, is that it doesn't come across as some toy-like novelty item – it errs more on the sensible side. Even so, I still want to tilt the screen forward at times and its fold flat and slide convertible mechanism must be obeyed, which can be a little bothersome for speedy getaways. Still, this Ultrabook feels reassuringly solid and has a battery life that should get you through the day. Some will bemoan the lack of a full HD screen though, which leads to the biggest worry: the price. It's something that dogs all convertible Ultrabooks and the state of the premium portable PC market.

The Toshiba Satellite U920T has good processing power, good responsiveness and a good touchscreen to make up for the small touchpad. But it's just too heavy to use as a tablet. If you're not in it for the touchscreen, then we recommend the Portégé Z930, which has better processor power and more connectivity... And it costs less.

The Toshiba Satellite U920t is a well-built and reasonably attractive convertible laptop/tablet with smooth and assured sliding action, although it’s rather awkward to open compared to other sliders. It offers decent connectivity, an average typing experience, good enough performance, and surprisingly impressive speakers. To keep the Toshiba Satellite U920t price lower than most rivals, Toshiba has been forced to cut a few corners: the screen resolution is not Full HD, it ‘only’ offers five-point touch, and there’s no pressure-sensitive stylus support. However, better battery life than most non-Atom hybrids we’ve tested means it’s still an attractive option.

Slash £200/$300 from the price and the Toshiba Satellite U920t is one of the best value hybrids on the market. Add a better screen and refine the mechanism and it's one of the best quality. But as it stands, the Toshiba Satellite U920t under delivers in both categories.

It’s too heavy and cumbersome to function well as a tablet, and although general build, usability and performance are all perfectly acceptable, the screen quality and battery life simply aren’t good enough for a machine costing the best part of £1,000. If you’re absolutely desperate to buy a Windows 8 hybrid right now, we’d go for the VAIO: it has a superior screen and a more attractive design, is much lighter and has longer battery life – plus, if the price is too high, you can always opt for a cheaper configuration. Our advice, though, is to hold onto your cash until something more compelling arrives. Either that or buy a proper laptop or tablet instead.

The Satellite U920T is the first attempt from Toshiba at creating a Windows 8 hybrid device. The Toshiba Satellite U920T has a unique way of transforming from a tablet into a laptop. Sadly, it's not a very nice one and together with the low resolution screen and only moderate performance, it doesn't do much to justify the price tag.

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.

As Toshiba’s only initial offering in the Windows 8 tablet/convertible laptop market, the Satellite U920t has a lot riding on it. It’s a well-built and attractive device with smooth and assured sliding action, and offers decent connectivity. To keep its price lower than most rivals a few corners have been cut: the screen resolution is not Full HD, it ‘only’ offers five-point touch, and there’s no pressure-sensitive stylus support. However, the U920t gives you good specifications and connectivity, and its affordability is a major plus. We look forward to giving you our final verdict in the full review.
