Toshiba Unveils Ultra-Thin Hybrid Laptop For Business

Toshiba has launched a new hybrid laptop aimed at business users in an effort to muscle its way into the crowded enterprise PC market.

The Portégé X20W-D, which Toshiba claims is “the world’s thinnest and lightest 2-in-1 business laptop to utilise a full power 7th Generation Intel Core processor” comes equipped with a 12.5-inch non-reflective touchscreen display and up to 16.5 hours of battery life.

Mobile users can also make use of “step charge technology,” which provides four hours of battery life from a 30-minute charge, essentially rapid charging by another name.

The laptop has a thickness of just 15.4mm and weighs just over a kilogram, making it extremely portable and ideal for transporting between meetings, for example.

Other key features include 16GB of RAM, 512GB of SSD storage, an LED backlit keyboard, USB type C connectivity and runs the Windows 10 Pro operating system.

“We developed the Portégé X20W-D as part of our drive to create the best possible laptop experience for professionals, from employees in small to mid-size organisations, to large corporate environments – regardless of their location,” said Maki Yamashita, senior vice president, PC & Solutions EMEA at Toshiba Europe GmbH.

“We believe our latest addition to the Portégé family provides the perfect combination of mobility and reliability, whilst offering an advanced level of security and peace of mind for today’s workforces.”
