CES 2015 | Toshiba's Portege Z20t is an alternative to the Surface Pro 3
Back a few good months ago when Microsoft officially unveiled the Surface Pro 3, customers were for the first time introduced to a tablet that can actually keep up with the latest laptops in terms of performance. The top model may seem expensive to many, but there are few fully-featured laptops that can actually match specs such as an Intel Core i7 processor, 8GB of RAM, and a capacious SSD. If you're looking for an alternative to Microsoft's laptop replacement, you might want to check out Toshiba's latest tablet announcement, fresh from the Toshiba press event at CES 2015 in Las Vegas.
The new Toshiba Portégé Z20t has a 12.5-inch display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. Other technical specifications include an Intel Core M processor, up to 8GB RAM and up to 512GB of SSD storage. Thanks to the low power consumption of the Intel Core M processor, the Z20t is said to boast a battery life of up to 9.1 hours. Other highlights of the tablet are a weight of only 730 grams and a thickness of just 9mm. The Z20t also comes with a keyboard dock that can increase to total running time to 17.5 hours thanks to the built-in battery.
In the US, the Toshiba Portégé Z20t will be released at the end of January, at prices ranging between $1399 and $1899, depending on the exact configuration. This is a high price, no doubt, but it's one that some might be willing to pay for such a good looking and capable tablet/notebook convertible.
