Reviews for the Toshiba Portege Z20t-B-103

80% Toshiba Portégé Z20t review
Source: V3.co.uk English Archive.org version
The Portégé Z20t is extremely slick and well designed, delivering a two-in-one that is the first we have seen to convincingly look good in standalone tablet and laptop configurations. As an ultraportable, the Z20t also looks the part, although it felt slightly on the heavy side for our liking. Perhaps thanks to Intel's Core M platform, Toshiba has managed to deliver a system that can offer all-day battery life in its docked configuration, although it is a shame that the tablet and keyboard have integrated batteries.

Comment

Series: The Toshiba Portege Z20 Series is a hybrid and lightweight detachable laptop for those who are looking to do some work and some entertainment when they are on-the-go. Its solid chassis from black metallic graphite is compact and stylish. Theres a choice of processors for this Windows convertible ranging from an Intel Core M 5Y31 up to an Intel Core m7 6Y75. The integrated CPU depends on the selected processor.

The system either comes with 4 GB or 8 GB of LPDDR3 RAM, which is not upgradeable after purchase, a 128 GB or 256 GB SSD and a 12.5 inch Full HD display. The laptop’s detachable keyboard may be a little difficult to type on and may take some time to get used to. The connectivity includes one USB 3.1 port, two USB 3.0 ports, an HDMI port, an audio combo jack and a microSD card reader. As the laptop is mainly built for business usage, it only weighs 1.5 kg and the battery life is up to 7:41 hours.

Intel HD Graphics 5300: Integrated graphics card (GT2) in Core M processors from the Broadwell Y-series (4.5 W TDP). 

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

5Y51: Broadwell-based ULV dual-core processor for tablets and 2-in-1 notebooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 5300 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


12.50":

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.
