Reviews for the Toshiba Satellite U920t-100

79% Review Toshiba Satellite U920t-100 Ultrabook | Notebookcheck
Ultra-Hybrid. Toshiba presents quite a few interesting Ultrabooks to the world. Our latest test model is a fusion of a tablet and Ultrabook. It employs a 12.5-inch touchscreen and a power-saving Intel Core i5-3317U processor with integrated Intel HD Graphics 4000 IGP. The Hybrid model looks great but what does it have to offer on the hardware side?
40% An underwhelming hybrid, despite impressive innards

Hybrids are perhaps not as popular as one might think. The best-of-all-worlds selling point has been hammered somewhat by consumers' reception of Windows 8. But if v8.1 of Microsoft's OS catches on, hybrids could still see more of the market. Just not worth the money, considering it doesn’t deliver as a tablet.

80% Toshiba Satellite U920t convertible notebook review

Toshiba’s take on the convertible tablet/ultrabook uses a very similar sliding mechanism to Sony’s Duo 11, with the screen sliding upwards and then away from the keyboard. Toshiba has packed in a few added extras that help to justify the slightly higher price here, namely a large SSD and GPS. Combined with a decent screen and excellent hinge, the U920t is a rather compelling convertible.

Comment

Model:

Toshiba Satellite U920T-100 is arguably a Windows 8 device that has one of the most unique designs when compared to other Windows 8 devices. Rather than designed with a screen that can rotate up to 360 degrees, this convertible laptop has special rails instead. Featuring a 12.5-inch touchscreen display with solid black color throughout its body, it looks really simple since it is designed for those who want simplicity and to eliminate the need of a laptop and a tablet separately. Besides, it can run many desktop applications like Microsoft Office, Skype and Photoshop in tablet mode which is an added value. Powered by a super-fast Intel Core i5 processor with 4 GB RAM, it is good enough to perform tasks such as browsing and playing simple games. Thus, it delivers good application performance in Windows 8 - thanks to its specs and touchscreen display which maximize the Windows 8 experience.

However, it weighs 1.5 kg which isn’t optimal to be used as a tablet. Unsurprisingly, it’s far heavier than the iPad and other Android tablets. In laptop mode, the keyboard and touchpad are small compared to other similarly big laptops, which is due to the slider design. Despite carrying a laptop-tablet hybrid concept, the screen resolution of only 1,366 x 768 pixels is a tad disappointing. The low resolution display isn’t the best for multimedia experience such as watching movies and videos. Overall, it’s a good performing laptop with a unique design. Nevertheless, the Toshiba Satellite U920t-100 is still something to consider if you’re looking for a versatile, convertible Windows 8 laptop.
