Toshiba has made available their only Windows 8 touchscreen Ultrabook, the Toshiba Satellite U925T. This is a hybrid slider which also goes by the name U920T depending upon the region. Chippy got a great hands on of the U925T back at IDF 2012 in September and the design seems unchanged since then. This is one of a few hybrid Ultrabooks currently shipping with NFC.

Intel’s New “Ultrabook Convertible” Advertising

intelultrabookconvertible

Good morning everyone. Hope you enjoyed yesterdays live blog (still updating) on the day that Windows 8 was officially launched. First possible availability is today for all Windows 8 devices so watch out for the first discounts! You’ll see some disappointing ‘out of stock’ messages at Amazon.com though.

Update: Ultrabook convertible overview here.

Let’s kick off today’s Ultrabook coverage by looking at a new Ultrabook video campaign from Intel. 7 videos have just gone live and some focus purely on the convertible side (!) of Ultrabooks. Ultrabook first though in the “Ultrabook convertible” ads.

ASUS Transformer Book Gets Price, Weight and More. (Updated)

…and it’s not cheap!

Update: It’s not light either. See product page for size and weight info.

As we watched this ASUS Transformer Book video from Liliputing yesterday, we heard some talk about a price and immediately started to write an article while simultaneously contacting Brad Linder at Liliputing for confirmation. He couldn’t give it. Apparently the voice was from another conversation and as there were other devices on the table he couldn’t confirm. We have new information now though.

The good news is that the Transformer Book is going to available in Italy from December. The bad news is that the price is going to be…

Gigabyte have demonstrated their swivel-screen U2141 Ultrabook and say it will be ready soon after Windows 8 launch.  It’s an 11.6” model with much the same soul as the T1132 Booktop, a Core-based 11.6” convertible that existed outside the Ultrabook sector.

02 November. Correction. We’ve had confirmation that the ASUS Taichi only has in touchscreen, onto the ‘tablet’ side.

It might seem a little over the top but you can’t deny the ASUS Taichi 21 is one incredible design. A UX21A-style Ultrabook with not one but two 10-point touch FullHD screens!

ASUS Vivo Tab Hands-On. Thoughts about the Atom-based Options

I really liked the look of the HP Env X2 I tested at IDF 2012. The size and weight proportions are more conducive to mobile operations than some of the Core-based solutions and in addition, there’s a battery life advantage to be had over Core but it’s not quite up to replacing a desktop for most people so there’s a big trade-off. The ASUS Vivo Tab is the same, but looks even better!

I got hands-on at IDF and you can see that in the video below. I walked away very impressed and definitely interested in testing it further, especially as I’m a huge fan of ultra-mobile solutions.

Dell XPS 12 Convertible 12 Hands-On

Dell XPS Duo 12

Update: Product specifications and tracking page is now live.

The Dell XPS 12 Convertible  Duo is an impressive looking Ultrabook. People here at IDF are flocking to it to check out the unique flip screen. The design works well but like all convertible  designs that retain the keyboard, can’t give you a lightweight tablet. A 1.4KG tablet isn’t very mobile but it does offer something for those that primarily want a touchscreen Ultrabook with occasional tablet-style capabilities. This could be a good one as an ice-breaker for business meetings though!

HP Envy X2–An Option for Ultra-Mobile Fans. Video Hands-On

I hadn’t intended to write about Atom-based devices while at IDF this week but the HP Envy X2 caught my eye in a very good way and after a hands-on I came away thinking how far Atom has come and how this device represents something for those wanting the full flexibility of a modular PC and a focus on battery life.
