How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Review

The U925t's slider form factor makes for a compromised typing experience. Meanwhile, other Win 8 convertibles offer better screens, battery life and build quality for a similar price.

Pros
  • IPS display offers good viewing angles
  • Can be used in tablet mode
Cons
  • Slider design means limited keyboard space
  • Loud fan noise
  • Short battery life
  • Build quality isn't great
