Toshiba introduces new convertible ultrabook

Apr 1, 2013

Toshiba Gulf FZE has announced the launch of its new 12,5-inch convertible ultrabook, the Satellite U920t – a compact mobile computer that merges convenience and usability, offering an alternative for users who require a versatile machine in a compact form.

The Satellite U920t offers the best of both worlds: for content consumption, the convertible ultrabook can be operated in tablet mode to take advantage of touch support with Windows 8; and for additional tasks which involve typing, the laptop mode is a welcome option. Toshiba’s new convertible ultrabook will be available in South Africa in late March 2013.

“The Satellite U920t is designed to take advantage of the Windows 8 enhanced user interface, providing an intuitive and engaging computing experience,” says Linsay Narayanan, product specialist at the South Africa Division of Toshiba Gulf FZE.

“Consumption of digital media has evolved, and the Windows 8 launch came in time to leverage on this revolution through its modern, intuitive touch gestures and Windows applications.”

Enjoy the best of both worlds with the performance of an ultrabook and the ease of use of a tablet. Simply convert from ultrabook mode to tablet mode instantly with the slide-and-tilt design. This laptop allows for ultimate versatility and flexibility to adapt to any environment quickly and easily, while enjoying the perks of today’s most popular technologies.

Achieve new levels of productivity with the ultrabook purpose-built for the Windows 8 experience. The new Windows 8 user interface is optimised for touchscreen input and enables users to increase everyday efficiency.

Tap into greater comfort and convenience with a five-finger capacitive touch panel, and gain the freedom to work and play well into the night, thanks to the large ClickPad with Windows 8 gesture support, full-size, LED-backlit keyboard option and fingerprint-resistant 12,5-inch diagonal Corning Gorilla Glass IPS touchscreen display.

Speed through every task with the ultra-responsive performance of a third generation Intel Core processor and lightning-fast solid state drive (SSD). The system’s quick start-up and resume functions, compliments of Windows 8, combine with performance components like SSD and Intel Rapid Start Technology. The Satellite U920t stays productive while on the go with a solid battery life of up to four hours.

There is plenty of room to expand, synch and share with the U920t.

It has two integrated USB 3.0 ports and a full-size HDMI port that allows digital content sharing on a big screen TV – in up to 1080p full HD resolution.

The Satellite U920t also allows for transferring of data to the ultrabook quickly and securely with the near-field communication (NFC) option. It has tablet sensors, like the built-in ambient light sensor (ALS) that automatically adjusts to lighting conditions, as well as an accelerometer, magnetometer, gyroscope and GPS.

The ultra-thin design and light weight won’t compromise on style. This ultrabook features a height of approximately 19,9mm and a weight of 1,52kg. The convertible design comes with a durable magnesium cover.
