Reviews for the Toshiba Portege Z20t-B-10C
Expensive runtime wonder. Toshiba charges a steep price of 2000 Euros (~$2138) for the top configuration of its latest business convertible – in return the user gets a business device with comprehensive features and enormous battery runtimes. Thanks to the anti-reflective touchscreen, the Portege Z20t can also be used outdoors.

Model: Convertibles are getting more and more popular lately with their laptop-and-tablet technology in a single device. This addition to Toshiba's portfolio is one such offering. The Toshiba Portégé Z20t-B-10C brings various features that are certain to beat its competition for a high-end price. The 12.5 inch display is slightly larger than similar convertibles' and the touchscreen is anti-fingerprint and anti-reflective, ensuring a clear display at all times and enabling outdoor usages. The non-reflective feature will definitely appeal to users who are constantly travelling as it will not hamper their need to reply emails or handle other important matters on-the-go. With both 360° hinge and detachable keyboard option, users will be able to use this model according to their convenience and style.
Another pro is the capacitive LED backlit touchscreen, which is more receptive to user touch and supports up to 10-point input.

Its 1920 x 1080 IPS display driven by the Intel HD Graphics 5300 does not disappoint as well. It provides a satisfying media-viewing experience with its wide viewing angles.

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.
