CES 2017: Toshiba Announces Portégé X20W 2-in-1 PC

A day ahead of CES, Toshiba has announced the Portégé X20W, a premium 2-in-1 convertible PC offering.

As you may know, Toshiba’s PC business has fallen on hard times recently, and I have to wonder if that explains why the firm has announced just a single PC at CES this year.

In any event, the device looks solid and features a 360-degree, dual-action hinge, a TruPen active pen powered by Wacom, Cortana-optimized multi-directional microphones, and Windows Hello dual-IR cameras and fingerprint reader. It’s powered by a 7th-generation Intel Core processor and features a 12.5-inch Full HD display, USB-C/Thunderbolt 3 connectivity, and premium Hardon Kardon stereo speakers.

The Portégé X20W is pretty svelte, too: It weighs in at under 2.5 pounds and is less than 15.4 mm thin. Battery life is rated at 16 hours.

The Portégé X20W will be available soon in slate gray from the Microsoft Store. No word on pricing.

    Interesting. I remember that Toshiba had formally exited the consumer PC / Chromebook market here in the U.S. I guess they are still in the enterprise space though.

    The hardware designs coming out from manufacturers now are actually pretty interesting, with more options than ever before. Two problems though - first the price. Just because they have 'new' designs, doesn't excuse the extreme high pricing. I get they're all after the lucrative high margin Surface market, but over 90% of PC sales are at the low/extreme low end of the price bracket, so HP, Lenovo, others and now Toshiba are fighting over a very small piece of high end pie. The second problem is, despite looking nice, this kit is straddled with an underwhelming O/S. Nuff said.

    Selling one top-of-the-line unit with the best specs is better than selling multiple units of varying quality that confuses users. The only issue is pricing and whether Windows is better than before as a mobile device (not so sure).
