Today, even laptops for professional use take advantage of touch screens. And the Toshiba Portégé X20W-D is the lightest convertible laptop, weighing just 1.1kg and just 15.4mm thin. The Toshiba Portégé X20W-D combines versatility with lightness, without neglecting very complete features, including a battery life of up to 16 hours.
The format chosen is the hinge format that allows to rotate the touch screen 360 degrees, to use the Toshiba Portégé X20W-D in different positions, such as a "tent" mode perfect for watching videos, or a notebook mode that makes it easy to take notes with the optional stylus to be released.
We knew for some time that Toshiba was going to focus on business PCs, so it's no surprise that the Portégé X20W-D comes loaded with security featuresthat keep our valuable data safe. For example, a fingerprint reader, a login system based on facial recognition or a TPM 2.0 module, which provides additional security in Windows 10.
The Toshiba Portégé X20W-D will have a base station sold separately, for when we want to use it on a desk next to a monitor, and that expands the ports. In addition, an optional adapter is offered in case we need more ports also in mobility.
