Toshiba is joining OEMs who have recently announced new Windows-based devices. We’ve seen more and more laptops, tablets and hybrids being announced, and one of the reasons could be the fact that Microsoft’s Windows 10 announcement has given everybody hope that consumers will flock massively to it.

The new Toshiba Portégé Z20 comes with a 12.5-inch display, featuring more space than the previous Toshiba Portégé Z20 Z10t, which had an 11.6-inch screen. The tablet alone weighs 799 g / 1.76 lbs and is 8.8mm / 0.34 inches thick, but with the keyboard dock attached, it increases to a true 1.59kg / 3.5 lbs laptop.

The keyboard dock incorporates an extra battery which increases the convertible’s overall battery life to around 16 hours. There’s a Full HD IPS touch screen, a spill-resistant backlit keyboard plus along with an integrated Accupoint which serves as an alternative to the large click pad for better accuracy.

The tablet-laptop features an Intel Core M processor which makes it possible for a fanless design. There’s a nice 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage, and users can get an optional pen with Wacom technology. There’s also a micro HDMI port, micro USB and microSD card.

The laptop/tablet hybrid comes with the Trusted Platform Mobile (TPM) which protects data stored locally, while Intel Active Management Technology (AMT) allows to monitor, repair and upgrade the devices remotely and a Kensington lock is available, as well. So, judging by these features, this seems like a business-focused device.

At the moment, pricing and availability haven’t been disclosed yet, but rumors has it that it will be released in Q1 2015. As for the price, if we have a quick look at the specs, it’s easy to assume that it won’t be quite cheap.
