Toshiba Tackles Mobile Computing with New Hybrid Computer

Toshiba Corp. looks to start the New Year with a bang. The Global Fortune 500 company worked with Microsoft to unveil one of their latest innovative product for 2017 – the Portégé® X20W. It is a 2-in-1 convertible PC that runs Windows 10 Pro and functions as both a laptop and a tablet. The new PC has a battery life that lasts up to 16 hours, while weighing less than 2.5 pounds. The device will include a 7th Generation Intel® Core™ Processor, a 12.5 inch full HD display, and a solid state drive. On top of this, it provides state-of-the-art security with facial authentication and a fingerprint reader, making the product ideal for professional consumers.

The Portégé® X20W will have 5 viewing modes: laptop, tablet, tabletop, presentation and audience. It will be easily interchangeable between the modes through its 360-degree hinge. It will be paired with a TruPen stylus and Wacom’s Feel technology and 2,048 levels of pressure sensitivity to make writing on the device seamless and as natural as possible.

Carl Pinto, vice president of marketing and product development for Toshiba’s Client Solutions Division, believes the company has “developed a professional grade 2-in-1 convertible PC eliminating the need to choose between a laptop, a tablet or even a notepad” and goes as far as to say that the new product will become the “future of mobile computing.”

The Portégé® X20W will be released in the colors Slate Gray and Onyx Blue, with the former available only at the Microsoft Store or website, and the latter available at Toshiba’s website at the end of the month. No pricing is available for the item currently.
