Toshiba launches the ultimate business 2-in-1

Sydney, AUSTRALIA – 28 January, 2015 – Toshiba today launched a premium 12.5” 2-in-1 notebook and tablet, which has been designed to meet the performance and mobility needs of high-performing professionals. The slim and highly flexible Toshiba Portégé Z20t is optimised for the new Intel® Core™ M processor. Featuring up to 17 hours of battery life, it is a no compromise solution for users wanting the ultimate in business and leisure computing.

This savvy notebook has been designed with user flexibility in mind. The Portégé Z20t offers five different working modes – notebook, tablet, docked tablet, presentation and movie view, ensuring it is able to meet a diverse range of user needs. Featuring two Li-ion batteries, the Toshiba Portégé Z20t can be used for up to 9 hours as a tablet and up to 17 hours in notebook mode, making it the perfect device to use on the go.

The beautifully designed Toshiba Portégé Z20t is sleek and lightweight, with an 8.8mm thin screen and weighs a mere 799gm in tablet mode and 1.51kg in notebook mode. The notebook features a strong Honeycomb frame, providing ultra-lightweight protection to the Toshiba Portégé Z20t, protecting it against the rigours of daily use.

The Portégé Z20t offers a number of advanced security features, including Toshiba’s EasyGuard suite, to keep business data safe. The Trusted Platform Module (TPM) safeguards data on local storage, while Intel’s® Active Management Technology (AMT), available on selected models, allows the IT department to monitor, maintain, repair, update and upgrade machines remotely. A Kensington lock port is available which secures the keyboard to desks or other fixed points and also ensures that the tablet can’t be detached when docked.

“The Portégé Z20t is the ultimate IT solution for professionals looking for flexibility, portability and unparalleled performance. From the advanced security and IT management features, to the simple one-handed attach mechanism to flick between notebook and tablet modes, the Portégé Z20t is the device for today’s complex business environment,” said Justin White, Product Marketing Manager, Toshiba (Australia) Pty Ltd.

The 12.5” full High Definition backlit touch display delivers vibrant, clear detail and is completed with a matt finish to reduce reflection from office lights or sunlight. The spill resistant back-lit keyboard allows users to work comfortably in dimly lit environments, while an improved key design provides easy and comfortable typing. The Toshiba Portégé Z20t also has a multi-touch screen and includes two active digitizer pens so users can write, sketch or make notes directly on documents.

With impressive performance in every working mode, the Portégé Z20t includes an SSD of up to 256 GB and up to 8 GB of memory for superb responsiveness and the ability to run multiple programs with ease. Featuring connectivity for all scenarios, the Portégé Z20t provides extensive options to connect to all the peripherals a business user might need. In tablet mode, a micro HDMI® port, micro USB port and micro SD slot are included for connecting to additional screens and fast data transfers.

The Portégé Z20t also allows for stable internet use on the move with optional 4G module and reliable, fast Wi-Fi® access across a range of networks with Intel AC dual band Wi-Fi®.
