Toshiba finally launches its very first convertible laptop with the 360-degree hinge at CES 2017. It has stopped making consumer notebooks long time ago and have been regrouping its business line. Now, it has come up with an amazing technology that can be a huge competition for other big names in the tech industry.
What To Expect From The Portege X20W?
The Portege X20W consists of a 360-Degre hinge for enterprise users. It consists of a magnesium alloy frame and a slim 15.4mm profile makes it look stylish and sumptuous. The laptop has a 12.5-inch full HD screen made up of Gorilla Glass which makes it completely scratch free. It has different modes by which it can be operated just like a laptop, tablet or tent modes. The 360-degree hinge provides enough support to the Portege's weight in whatever mode it is put to.
The whole laptop weighs only 2.5 pounds just the same as 14-inch Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon but Toshiba has managed to make it a bit lighter. Also, the company has assured that the laptop would provide battery life of up to 16 hours, which is much more than the Lenovo ThinkPad laptop.
Some Key Features
Reports have said that the keyboard given to the laptop looks amazing and has a great texture. Also, Portege's deck has even spacing and comfortable to type on. The clicks are easy to register over the keypad and do not require much force making it very comfortable. It even has a fingerprint scanner function that allows one to unlock the computer by just swiping the finger.
It also consists of two cameras and two microphones to support good image quality and voice login via Windows Hello. The most important function that Portege brings is the new Wacom-Designed pen that has a fine nib just like another style. The X20W starts with a price of about $1,199 including the pen with other combinations of devices. It has seventh generation Intel Core i5 processor with 8GB RAM and a 256GB SSD to start with.
