All hail Windows 8, well at least that’s what we can conclude. We have to admit that there has been many devices running on W8 that should not have left the showroom or concept floors at CES.
Then there’s the odd one in, this time from Toshiba. The Japanese electronic corporation released its first ever Convertible Ultrabook the Satellite U920t.
The convertible Ultrabook™ can be operated in tablet mode to take advantage of touch support with Windows 8, while for additional tasks which involve typing, the laptop mode is a welcome option.
Users can 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.
