  • Toshiba's take on the tablet-laptop hybrid concept is the Satellite U920T, which the manufacturer showed off at IFA on Thursday.

    The U920T has a 12.5-inch screen. Like Sony's Vaio Duo 11, which has a slightly smaller 11.6-inch screen, a sliding motion converts it from tablet to ultrabook, or vice versa.

    The U920T is a variant for the European market, with some minor keyboard-layout differences setting it apart from the U925T.

  • This picture shows the U920T in tablet mode.

    The screen is an IPS HD affair, with five-finger multitouch. Graphics come courtesy of Intel's HD 4000 integrated GPU.

  • The screen slides back much further on the U920T than it does on Sony's Vaio Duo 11.

    On first impressions, the hinge mechanism also looks a bit less robust.

  • Toshiba...

    will have to do better than this if they want to compete with the other manufacturer's. Based on what I've seen, this looks to be the worst of the bunch so far.

    has not made a good product in years. I'm surprised they haven't gone under already.
