BizTech Review: The Toshiba Portégé X20W

The Toshiba Portégé X20W notebook offers business travelers the power to perform tasks on the road without adding heft to their carry-ons. That benefit would be enough for most business travelers, but the X20W offers a lot more.

One key differentiator is the sturdy 360-degee, dual-action hinge. By pushing the display backward, the screen can be locked down on the back of the keyboard, creating a slate-type tablet.

Besides these laptop and tablet modes, the Portégé comes preconfigured to operate in tabletop and presentation mode, or to flip its display upside down, so that someone on the opposite side can view the screen’s content.

Toshiba also enhanced the Portégé’s display, a 12.5-inch multitouch LED configured in a 16:9 widescreen format. With 2 million pixels and Full HD 1920×1080 native resolution, everything on screen looks sharp. Product testing revealed highly accurate colors that were within 2 percent of true, their accuracy unaffected by the Corning Gorilla Glass 4 composite that protects the clear part of the display.
