Markham, ON (April 6, 2015)—Toshiba’s Digital Products Group (DPG), a division of Toshiba of Canada, today announced the Portégé® Z20t, a versatile premium 2-in-1 detachable PC with high-precision pen input designed for a wide range of uses. An Ultrabook and tablet in one, the device features a 12.5-inch Full HD IPS detachable display, a sleek thin-and-light design and a reversible keyboard dock that offers users the flexibility to use it in any situation, enabling new productivity possibilities. Powered by Intel's® Core™ M processor and pen technologies by Wacom®, the Portégé Z20t delivers the performance users need plus up to 17.4-hours of battery life.

 

"The Portégé Z20t is slim and lightweight, yet extremely durable and powerful with amazing battery life. With its multiple modes and high-precision pen input, the device is instantly adaptable to any scenario whether it is insurance adjusters filing claims, educators and students in the classroom, pharmaceutical sales reps on the road or meetings in the office," said Yuji Wakabayashi, Product Manager at Toshiba of Canada. "We have engineered this premium device to be the ultimate mobile companion, while still satisfying the security and management requirements critical to IT departments."

 

Designed for Portability and Flexibility
With a 12.5-inch display, the Portégé Z20t, provides the perfect balance between mobility and performance. Built with an extremely light, yet durable magnesium alloy, the tablet weighs only 1.6 pounds and when combined with the keyboard dock, just 3.3 pounds. The keyboard dock features a simple hinge mechanism that allows the tablet to be detached with one hand. The attachment mechanism is also reversible, enabling a presentation mode for showing content to a group of people.

 

The Portégé Z20t's Full HD IPS display delivers vibrant, clear detail with wide viewing angles. The 2-in-1's touch screen is ideal for business and education use, offering 10-point multi-touch support for both Windows 8.1 and Windows 7 Professional, and anti-fingerprint and anti-glare coatings that help reduce reflections, allowing for work under office lights or even outside. The device also features a Wacom digitizer with 2,048 points of sensitivity that enables amazing handwriting recognition and feels just like writing with a pen on paper using Toshiba's Digitizer Pen with Eraser. A secondary, emergency pen is stored conveniently in a dedicated slot on the tablet for anytime access.

 

Functionality and productivity are further enhanced by the inclusion of a spill-resistant LED backlit keyboard for working in dimly lit environments and an improved key design for comfortable typing. Additionally, the integrated Accupoint with its own dedicated buttons provides an alternative to the large clickpad for increased accuracy.

 

Impressive Performance in Every Mode
The Portégé Z20t is powered by Intel Core M processors, which offer the ideal combination of battery life and business-class performance in a single device. With the inclusion of these processors and Toshiba's engineering, the Portégé Z20t is housed in a fanless chassis with a premium, black magnesium alloy finish that operates silently with up to a 9.1-hour battery life rating as a tablet and an unprecedented 17.4-hour battery life rating with the keyboard dock.

 

The device features the new M.2 SSD interface and can be configured with a 128GB or 256GB solid state driveand up to 8GB of on-board LPDDR3 memory for easy multitasking. To ensure a comprehensive tablet experience, the device features a full array of sensors, including ambient light, gyroscope and an e-compass. The device also includes powerful wireless capabilities, including 802.11ac Wi-Fi® and Bluetooth® v4.0.

 

Security and Durability Enterprises Require
The Portégé Z20t offers a number of advanced features designed to keep a business' critical data safe, including 
Toshiba's EasyGuard suite. A Kensington lock port is included, which can secure the keyboard to desks and ensures the tablet cannot be detached when docked. Trusted Platform Module (TPM) safeguards the data on local storage, while Intel® Active Management Technology (AMT) allows IT departments to monitor, maintain, repair, update and upgrade machines remotely. Designed, engineered, manufactured and tested in-house at Toshiba, each model has also passed several rigorous tests to meet Toshiba's quality standards, including the HALT (Highly Accelerated Lifestyle Test), which simulates accelerated use conditions to improve product reliability.

 

The Portégé Z20t is easy to manage within corporate IT environments with advanced manageability options, including Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM), Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) and Toshiba Cloud Client Manager (TCCM).

 

Connectivity for All Scenarios
The Portégé Z20t provides extensive options to connect to all the peripherals a business user might need in a "dongle free environment." In tablet mode, a Micro HDMI® port, Micro USB port and microSD™ slot are included for connecting to additional displays and fast data transfers. With the keyboard attached, users can make the most of additional connectivity without additional adapters, including full-size RGB, HDMI®, Gigabit Ethernet and two USB 3.0 port.
