With the arrival of Windows 8, we have also seen the arrival of more hybrid-style laptops—portables that can take advantage of Windows 8's touch capabilities without sacrificing the productivity enabled by the traditional clamshell-style laptop with built-in keyboard. For everyone else, the Satellite is a study in compromises. For the price, you could buy a thinner, lighter laptop with a similarly sized display. But with the U925T, you'll get the flexibility of switching to the tablet and touch input when it suits your style.

The overall design of this laptop shows a lot of promise. The hinge design seems like a really good idea. The low quality screen and the placement of the fans make it impossible to enjoy the machine in the positions that the hinge seems to suggest you would use it, so it’s hard to tell. Toshiba is currently selling this ultrabook hybrid for $1149, which is $150 more than the Surface Pro.

Although it has all the ingredients for a good ultrabook or tablet, like an agile processor, svelte chassis, and attractive screen, the Toshiba Satellite U925T-S2120 misses the mark by trying to be both. The end result is a so-so ultrabook and a bulky tablet that converge through an awkward sliding hinge mechanism.

With its agile processor, svelte chassis, and attractive screen, the Toshiba Satellite U925T-S2120 has all the ingredients for a good ultrabook or tablet. By trying to be both, though, it ultimately misses the mark. Instead, the end products are a so-so ultrabook and a bulky tablet that converge through an awkwardly implemented sliding hinge mechanism. If you're absolutely set on getting a hybrid ultrabook, stick with the Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13 for its intuitive convertible design. Otherwise, the Asus Zenbook Prime Touch UX31A-BHI5T remains the ultrabook to beat.

This range of display format is largely the upper limit for tablets and the lower limit for subnotebooks.
The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small in size and therefore easily portable. The tiny display has the added advantage of requiring little power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is exhausting for the eyes. High resolutions, which one is used to from a standard laptop, are almost not usable.
The same applies to tablets in this size range.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
