Toshiba Satellite W30T-A-101

 

Toshiba aims to create the perfect laptop-tablet hybrid and... fails quite badly.

Good tablet build quality ; Decent integrated GPU ; Reasonable battery life ; Cheaper than competitors

Poor keyboard and trackpad ; Weak base build quality ; Unimaginative design ; Slow processor

The two speakers are on the left- and right-hand edges, which is fine in laptop mode – but when the Toshiba is held in its landscape orientation, your hands will block them off and ruin the sound.
