Toshiba Portege Z20t review

 

The battery life king

Long battery life ; Smudge-proof chassis ; Vibrant FHD screen

Poor performance ; Awful keyboard ; Awkward keyboard attachment

This two-in-one laptop for work offers incredible battery life and extra oomph through its handy keyboard base, but will cost you dearly.

Toshiba Portégé Z20t review

 

If you want a laptop and a Windows tablet without either being a compromise, the Portégé Z20t is the system for you. That said, it feels a little heavy for an ultraportable and seems pricey. However, you get what you pay for and the Z20t exudes quality.

Works well as both tablet and ultraportable; all-day battery life; Core-M delivers ample performance for productivity apps

Integrated batteries; heavy for its size; no fingerprint scanner or smartcard

Toshiba Portege Z20t Ultrabook (PT15BA-00500Y)

 

A Windows 8.1-based hybrid product that can be used equally well as a tablet or as a notebook

Comfortable as a tablet ; Anti-glare screen ; Good as a notebook ; Comes with an active digitiser pen

Has a top-heavy lean ; Base mount allows the screen to wobble ; Touchpad needs to be better

Toshiba Portege Z20t review

 

The Z20T's matte display and excellent keyboard impress, but its high price is a problem.

The Portege Z20T is a competent 2-in-1 business combo, but it falls behind the rest of the pack. While the matte screen, excellent keyboard, and alternative pointing stick will appeal to business users, the tablet functionality, active stylus, and...

Toshiba Portege Z20t-B2112

 

The Toshiba Portege Z20t-B2112, a slim, detachable-hybrid ultrabook and tablet, is great for working on the go, but its Intel Core M processor and an older operating system means it doesn't have the productive chops it needs to lead the category.

Thin and light design. Versatile tablet and docking keyboard. Active digitizer and pen. Second, stowable stylus. Second battery in keyboard doubles battery life

Intel Core M processor can't match performance of Core i5 CPUs. Windows 7 is clunky for touch and tablet use. Mediocre camera

The Toshiba Portege Z20t-B2112 ($1,699.99 as tested) is a detachable-hybrid ultrabook for business that combines a 12-inch Windows tablet, docking keyboard, and slim ultrabook design into a versatile productivity machine for working in the office or on...

Review: Toshiba Portege Z20t

 

A nother Core M-based device lets us see further evidence of its advantages – and cons. Toshiba is pitching the Portege Z20t as a business device, but also hopes to sell them into schools, so it's a sturdily built device with thoughtful features.

A little lacking in power, but more than makes up for it with flexibility and design.

Toshiba Portege Z20t Ultrabook (PT15BA-00500Y)

 

The last time we saw a 2-in-1 Toshiba Portege (the Z10t back in August 2013), we had a few concerns: its keyboard dock was unreliable during our tests, its battery life was short, and we found its configuration to be too noisy for our liking. Fast fo...

Consumer review (productreview.com.au)

Had higher expectations...

 

I bought this laptop for only school use (word processing, web browsing) and was excited to get it. After using this laptop for over 2 years I was disappointed. The keyboard which detaches from the screen is made from 100% plastic and feels cheap. A...
