Reviews for the Toshiba Portege Z20t-C-121

84.9% Toshiba Portégé Z20t-C-121 Detachable Review | Notebookcheck
Business device with stamina. Toshiba primarily did a facelift with the Portégé Z20t-C: The C models come with Skylake processors now and bring a Type-C USB port (USB 3.1 Gen 1). Despite a price north of about 2000 Euros (~$2234), the device is not flawless.
