Toshiba Expands Portégé X20W Options to Include 7th Generation Intel® Core™ vPro Processors

IRVINE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#7thGeneration–Toshiba’s Client
Solutions Division
(CSD), a division of Toshiba America Information
Systems, Inc., today announced the availability of 7th
Generation Intel® Core™ vPro Processors on the company’s recently
launched Portégé®
. The adoption of this Intel technology promises to deliver
advancements in security, performance, productivity, manageability and
streamlined connectivity. The Portégé X20W is Toshiba’s premium 2-in-1
convertible PC running Windows 10 Pro that is both a laptop and tablet
and everything in between.

“Making the 7th Generation Intel® Core™ vPro processor
available on the Portégé X20W was important to Toshiba and extended the
appeal of our 2-in-1 convertible to professionals and organizations
looking to integrate the device into its fleet of mobile solutions,”
said Carl Pinto, vice president of marketing and product development,
Client Solutions Division, Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc.

In addition to the 7th Generation Intel® Core™ vPro
Processors, the Portégé
also incorporates Windows 10 Pro, 12.5-inch diagonal
high-resolution, multi-touch wide viewing angle display, Intel® 802.11ac
Wi-Fi®3 and a solid state drive all inside its durable
magnesium alloy casing. Measuring 15.4mm thin and weighing less than 2.5
pounds1, the Portégé X20W has a battery life rating of up to
16 hours2. This new 2-in-1 convertible PC delivers
enterprise-level security through the adoption of facial authentication,
fingerprint reader and Trusted Platform Module technologies5.

One Solution, Five Modes
The Portégé
convertible 2-in-1 laptop features a sturdy 360-degree
dual-action hinge, enabling smooth transitions into five core viewing
modes—Laptop, Tablet, Tabletop, Presentation and Audience. Tackle the
day with a slim, high-performance laptop, flip the screen to conduct
presentations, be entertained or create through an engaging tablet and
digital inking experience. When changing modes, the laptop smartly
switches system settings and uses a smart-locking feature to protect the
keyboard and prevent mishaps.

Gorgeous 1080p Display: Visual Impact
A 12.5-inch diagonal,
Full HD (1920 x 1080), multi-touch wide viewing angle display packs over
2 million pixels onto the screen. Text is sharper and easier to read.
Color and quality is spot on. And to top it all off, the display of the Portégé
is reinforced with all-new Corning® Gorilla® Glass 4, which
offers higher levels of damage resistance as it’s better able to
withstand the shock of accidental bumps.

Amazingly Natural Handwriting
Coupling the 12.5-inch
diagonal display with Toshiba’s exclusive TruPen®
incorporating Wacom® Feel technology, allows Toshiba’s 2-in-1
convertible PC to deliver a professional grade digital handwriting
experience enhanced by an antiglare coating. Toshiba’s TruPen can detect
2,048 levels of pressure, giving users a natural pen-on-paper writing
experience, making the Portégé X20W perfect for taking notes, drawing,
capturing signatures and completing forms. To deliver a realistic and
accurate inking experience, the Portégé X20W uses a feature called
Toshiba Digital Ink Assist to detect when the digital pen is near the
screen and enables palm recognition on the device.

Leading-Edge Security Features
Toshiba developed the Portégé
X20W with both biometric and facial authentication technologies to
deliver an advanced level of security and distance itself from the
competition. This is the first Toshiba computing solution to incorporate
the SecurePad™ with Synaptics® Natural ID fingerprint sensor5
built right into the computer’s Touchpad. The Portégé X20W features an
IR camera to allow for facial authentication via Windows Hello face
. These two technologies are personal, secure and a password-free
way to quickly log-in to your device.

Windows 10 Pro
With an IR camera, dual multi-directional
microphones, touchscreen and an AES pen, Toshiba engineered the Portégé
X20W to maximize the advanced features of Microsoft’s powerful operating
system such as Windows Hello, Cortana, Microsoft Edge and Windows Ink.

A Commanding 360° Sound System
The Portégé X20W laptop
delivers a premium audio experience via Harman Kardon® stereo speakers
and DTS Sound™ software. Toshiba’s exclusive custom-tuned speakers adapt
to the rotational view of the display, delivering a robust, crisp and
natural audio from every angle.

Modern Ports with Expanded Capabilities
To achieve its slim
profile, the Portégé X20W has a USB Type-C™ port4, USB 3.0
port and headphone/mic combo port. As the industry’s new universal
standard, the USB Type-C port on the Portégé X20W features reversible
plug orientation and supports Display, Power Delivery and Thunderbolt™ 3
with speeds up to 40Gbps3. For expansion, Toshiba will ship
the USB Type-C to HDMI adapter with all Portégé X20Ws. Additional
adapters will be available at Toshiba’s web site.

Advanced Docking Options
The Portégé X20W is compatible with
two advanced docking solutions– the Toshiba WiGig® Dock6 and
Toshiba Thunderbolt® 3 Dock7, which will be available later
this quarter. These docks are designed to expand the overall
productivity of the Portégé X20W through a single connection.

Pricing and Availability
The Portégé
with 7th Generation Intel® Core™ vPro Processors
(Onyx Blue) is available from Toshiba’s web site. The Portégé X20W will
also be available from resellers in February 2017.
