Toshiba Satellite U925T-S2120 Ultrabook Computer

Convertibles or hybrid PC systems are now getting on air faster than expected, and this may be majorly affected by the people’s need for a perfect Windows 8 experience with the convenience of a touch. We’ve seen a lot of models featuring these states already, but only a few offers the most viable solution of bringing the tablet/display and the keyboard/docking station into the most versatile design or construct. With this regard, Toshiba puts another attempt to make Windows 8 more PC-like in experience by bringing back the slider-mechanism hinge for the display in its new model, the Satellite U925T-S2120: what you get is a tablet with a keyboard on it wherever you go, and you only need to slide the tablet out to have the seemingly perfect ultrabook experience.

The Toshiba Satellite U925T-S2120, or simply U925T, sports the said slider design wherein users can gain complete control on the keyboard without bringing a separate dock as the usual hybrid systems do. The sliding option can be a convenience to many of course, more because you are confident you always have a keyboard and a click pad to use wherever you go. However, for the U925T’s case, the model’s slider design may require additional space for the mechanism to totally work; to do so, you have to pull the ‘tablet’ out to a stop before you can actually lift the display for a desirable angle. To slide back, you need to flat the display first before actually sliding it.

More with the special mechanism, one drawback is that when you put the display up, the back surface of it actually reveals a ‘dirty’ surface full of parts for the slider, which destroys its appeal. Another thing is that, you can only opt for that same slide experience every time, and this means you always get the display exposed with no option to keep the display surface on the inside. Nevertheless, Toshiba at least copes up and makes the slider design different by making the viewing angle adjustable. Having an IPS also adds to the overall versatility of the display of the U925T.

On the other hand, the keyboard dock is exceptionally thin with keys well distanced and hence not cramped-looking at all. I actually appreciate Toshiba’s effort to force a click into the same plane, and though the click pad can be smaller than expected, gestures are at least responsive enough for an enhanced notebook-like experience. More with the support of the keyboard station on-board is a pair of full-sized USB 3.0 ports, one of which has an always-on feature for charging other devices like handsets. There’s also a full-sized HDMI port that compensates to the U925T’s lack of absolute display connectivity. An audio port is available as always, and there’s also an SD card reader for an extra bulk of storage.

The U925T of Toshiba runs on Intel Core i5 for the PC-like Windows 8 platform. Backing this up is a 4GB-RAM plus Intel’s HD Graphics for a better movie viewing and game handling, though obviously you cannot really play a hard-core PC game on this. For the storage, the U925T boasts of its 128GB SSD, which is significantly better for a speedier file access and transfer rates, and is also good for skyrocketing boot times. The U925T sadly for its price and specs does not have a good display at only 1366×768 despite having IPS and Gorilla Glass, and this flaw is not compensated by a longer battery life at only approximately four hours.

Other specs you’d love to know for this U925T of Toshiba is that it supports WiDi, Bluetooth, dual-band Wi-Fi, NFC, and some average cameras, which you can hardly see. The U925T of Toshiba is one good attempt to bring another reliable option to a more PC-like tablet experience, though I am not really sure if the slider design in this model would really be a good seller in itself.
