The Toshiba Portege family has always been special with its matte touchscreens, integrated VGA ports, and unique magnesium alloy designs that look very different from the more popular Lenovo ThinkPad and Dell Latitude competitors. The latest 13.3-inch model will give a Surface-like experience while offering many more connectivity options than the Microsoft solution.

Toshiba announced earlier this year that it would be cutting back on its family of consumer laptops to refocus on its more profitable flagship business-centric products. As a result, the Qosmio series is all but dead and both the budget Tecra and mid-range Satellite families have been scaled back significantly. The higher-end Portege family, however, continues to be updated with refreshed models every year. The Japanese OEM showed off its latest Portege offering at IFA 2018 that packs in a long list of features to appeal to professional users.

Called the Portege X30T, the 13.3-inch system is essentially the detachable version of the existing Portege X30 laptop. It will carry Intel 8th gen U-class CPUs such as the Core i7-8550U alongside an uncommon matte touchscreen for improved outdoor visibility. Even a VGA port is included to make the detachable one of the very few Windows laptops to ship with both the legacy port and a modern Kaby Lake-R CPU.

The Toshiba Portege X30T will begin shipping this October for a starting price of $1550 USD or a few hundred dollars more than the Surface Pro. The manufacturer includes a three-year limited warranty as standard with every new purchase.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
