Here’s a really nice looking 2-in-1 Ultrbook that, unfortunately, weighs nearly 2KG when docked together. A 13.3-inch Full HD screen tablet running a Core CPU in under 1KG isn’t too bad though and there are options here for hard drives and additional batteries in the base unit. The design is good because it incorporates a rear extension that not only houses the ports but keeps the whole unit stable when the screen is tilted. The Full HD screen is really nice.
There are three things I check when I quickly evaluate new 2-in-1 announcements. Price, performance (CPU, disk, screen) and weight. If the tablet is over 1KG a big buzzer goes off in my head. This 13-inch Satellite Click 2 Pro P30W however has got me inquisitive. 13.3-inches in 1.05KG (2.3 pounds) on an Ultrabook platform makes it quite interesting.
I haven’t had the chance to take a close look at the Toshibabefore so when I saw it on the Microsoft booth at CeBIT this week I took the chance to have a closer look. Wow, it’s a smart looking bit of kit.
With Haswell Y-Series, the Toshiba W30T has the right platform for the design. You’ve got a docking keyboard with battery and up to 256GB of SSD in the tablet (or 500GB hard drive if you want!) The screen resolution of 1366×768 is disappointing, as is the ‘punch’ of the display but we’re told that this hybrid is only 649 Euro. I want to see that in writing though.

Just announced at IFA. The Toshiba W30DT, a 2-in-1 ‘Home’ Tablet with docking station. Interesting is that this one is running on AMD A4.
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. The Toshiba Satellite U840 is the entry-level Windows 8 Ultrabook and the Satellite U920t the high-end slider + touch convertible.
