Toshiba U920t & U925t Slider-Touch Ultrabook
Toshiba Satellite U925t combines tablet and Ultrabook in sliding design. The Windows 8 hybrid has a thickness of only 0.78 inches and weighs 3.2 pounds, but basks on the Core i5 processor along with a powerful 12.5-inch Gorilla Glass screen.
As you slide the screen from tablet mode into notebook mode, you’ll see a 3 MP camera behind the back when you need to take a quick picture. The front HD webcam is there for video chat. Drag the display further and you will reveal a backlit LED keyboard, which gives a lot of travel as this is a sliding design.
After shifting the screen all the way a bit awkward, but at least the hinge feels solid. Plus, you get a small yet easy-to-use ClickPad with Windows 8 gesture support. As a tablet, the U925t has all the sensors you expect, including ambient lights, 3D acceleration, gyroscopes and manetometers, but you can also get NFCs to share files and paired devices.
U925t will be shipped with a Core i5 CPU and a 128GB solid state drive for sharp performance, along with a decent port range. Expect two USB 3.0, cad memory reader and HDMI connectivity. In front of the software, the Ultrabook-tablet combo will feature several Toshiba Windows 8 apps, including Toshiba Desktop Assist (which feels like the Start menu), Toshiba Central (great for support) and Place Messages and News Places.
So what about the price? Toshiba has not revealed the details yet, but we think north of $ 1,000. The U925t satellite will be launched October 26 along with Windows 8. Look forward to the full review.
