Reviews for the Toshiba Portege Z20t-B-10
Source: Digital Trends Archive.org version
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 awkward ergonomics will not. In fact, most of those positives can be found in cheaper business laptops without the tablet functionality.

The Toshiba Portege Z20t is well-balanced, powerful, feature-rich convertible with sturdy construction and almost flawless design with little drawbacks on the list. We were pleased with the rigidness of the chassis (the tablet’s as well as on the docking station’s shell) and also quite delighted from the various input methods that Toshiba has provided. The touchpad, keyboard, and the trackpoint were comfortable and easy to use. In addition, the docking station contains multiple ports (LAN, full-sized HDMI, micro HDMI on the tablet and VGA) that even standard 15.6-inch notebooks lack.

This range of display format is largely the upper limit for tablets and the lower limit for subnotebooks.
The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small in size and therefore easily portable. The tiny display has the added advantage of requiring little power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is exhausting for the eyes. High resolutions, which one is used to from a standard laptop, are almost not usable.
The same applies to tablets in this size range.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

70%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
