IRVINE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Toshiba’s Client Solutions Division (CSD), a division of Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc., today announced the availability of 7th Generation IntelÆ Core vPro Processors on the company’s recently launched PortégéÆ X20W. 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 IntelÆ 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 IntelÆ Core vPro Processors, the Portégé X20W also incorporates Windows 10 Pro, 12.5-inch diagonal high-resolution, multi-touch wide viewing angle display, IntelÆ 802.11ac Wi-FiÆ3 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 X20W 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 X20W is reinforced with all-new CorningÆ GorillaÆ 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 TruPenÆ incorporating WacomÆ 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 SynapticsÆ 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 sign-in. 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 KardonÆ 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 WiGigÆ Dock6 and Toshiba ThunderboltÆ 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 X20W with 7th Generation IntelÆ Core vPro Processors (Onyx Blue) is available from Toshiba’s web site. The Portégé X20W will also be available from resellers in February 2017.
