We reviewed it a few weeks ago and found the Toshiba U945 to be a good budget Ultrabook. if you’re looking for a high-quality screen you’ll want to stop reading now but if you want something expandable, with a great WiFi and Hybrid hard drive setup, keyboard backlight, a great set of ports and performance that beats the cheap Sandy Bridge Ultrabooks, this one is worth looking at. It even has a removable battery! It’s $569 at Amazon.com right now. More information below.
I thought we’d be getting a Toshiba U920T Slider Touchscreen Windows 8 Ultrabook through the post this week but I was wrong. It wasn’t until the video unboxing that I found out it was actually the ‘budget’ Toshiba Satellite U940 (U945 in the USA.) I’ve left the out-take in the overview video below. What we’ve ended up with is more than just a surprise, it’s a surprise pleasure because after only half a day of testing it’s clear that this is a well balanced Ultrabook with a few almost unique and very usable features.
The Verge seems to be the first to have their hands on the Toshiba Satellite U925T Ultrabook convertible. The U925T (also known as the U920T) is a Windows 8 slider which the company is now selling for $1149. The U925T is likely on your list If you’re looking for an Ultrabook convertible. Is it worth the $1149 price tag? Let’s see what The Verge has to say.
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.
Toshiba Europe were kind enough to give us some time with their new Windows 8 Ultrabooks. You may have read about the new models here on Ultrabooknews but this time we’ve had the chance to get hands-on. Theis the entry-level Windows 8 Ultrabook and the the high-end slider + touch convertible.

I had the chance to check out the Toshiba U920T / U925T slider Ultrabook at IDF last week in San Francisco and put a quick video together showing the slider mechanism, ports and screen which, is quite the glossy experience as you’ll see. There’s also an NFC demo – the U920T will be the first Ultrabook with NFC.
If you haven’t read our report on using an Ultrabook as a desktop, take a look now. Ultrabooks cover all the bases when it comes to daily computing and there’s some good options out there for making the desktop life even better. How about 4 screens for example? The Toshiba Dynadock U3.0 that we’ve been testing for the last few weeks gives you that and a whole lot more.
The Toshiba Dynadock U3.0 is the latest in a range of Dynadock products Toshiba have sold for the last three or four years. They combine a number of USB-based adaptors in a standalone unit that enhances the desktop experience and reduces the need to plug and unplug cables which saves time and wear.
We took a close look at the Toshiba U840W a few weeks ago. It’s the very wide screen Ultrabook aimed at media scenarios that could have some nice productive applications too. We think it’s an Ultrabook that everyone needs to have a serious look at and that’s exactly what Notebookcheck have done. We’ve got some pricing for you too so read on…
We spent a few hours with Toshiba in Germany yesterday and came away impressed by the commitment that this Japanese company has with the Ultrabook segment. In 2011 we saw the very thin, very lightbut in mid 2012 there’s now three models to choose from. Entry level with the U840, business with the Z930 and the interesting wide-screen U840W which we think is going to find some friends.
In the USA the models numbers are slightly different but the U845, U845W and Z935 correspond closely to what Europe will see.
Intel originally set the target price for Ultrabooks at $1000. As the category developed, they seemed determined to push that target price down even further and, with the Ultrabook-laden news out of Computex earlier in the month, it would seem that they’ve certainly accomplished that. Back to school time is coming and students will be looking for powerful and lightweight laptops which have great battery life — Ultrabooks fit the bill perfectly; even more so now than the first generation thanks to reduced prices!
Shown off at Intel’s keynote yetserday, Toshiba has a touchscreen slider Ultrabook in the works. There aren’t any official details yet. Toshiba has told us that they will have touchscreen options ready for the Windows 8 launch, this could be one of them.
Another huge day for the Ultrabook world as Computex gets started on day one! Most of the big surprises like the Asus TaiChi and Transformer Book were outed on Day 0, but there was still a flood of exciting news today. We worked hard to bring you detailed coverage here at Ultrabook News and now we’ve got a handy round-up of all the Computex Day 1 news; come on in and check it out!

In common environments like offices and silent environments (library, home office) the noise, a mechanical buzz rather than air noise, was unnoticeable. In a quiet environment, it’s another story. Here’s what we said in the Z830 review
The Toshiba Satellite Z830 (Z830-10J, Core i5) is here and the waiting is finally over. This is one of the most popular of the Ultrabooks out there right now due to its feature set, weight and, in the USA, an interesting price on the Core i3 version. I’ve unboxed it on video for you below but wanted to also give you a heads-up on the Live Review that will be run tomorrow, Friday the 16th at 2100 CET (Berlin, Your local time is listed here.) You can drop into the live review, watch the video, chat with people in the chat room and also ask me questions on the Z830 and Ultrabooks in general.
