Reviews for the Toshiba Portege Z20t-B-10G
Source: Digital Versus
Can the Portégé Z20t really compete with the Surface Pro 3? If you're looking at performance, picture quality, the stylus and overall design, then the answer is clearly "no." But it has other things going for it, such as much longer battery life, a better keyboard, a sturdy body and more connectivity. Just be aware that you won't be doing many complex tasks or photo editing on it.
