Less than a year ago, Toshiba gave up its consumer division, fired about 8,000 employees and put on sale a production facility of TV, but he assured that he would continue to develop, manufacture and distribute laptop computers professional grade. And so it was: from December 2015, the Japanese company has updated its Satellite Pro line of business notebook, Tecra and Portégé Skylake with Intel processors and AMD APU latest generation, the latest graphics cards and new security systems, but not still he has launched a new range.
Basically, in these months it has simply limited to renew the hardware equipment of its portable computers, however, without making major changes in design and adopted concept. The FCC engineers, however, could prove us wrong because in these hours have certified modules Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 8265 and Bluetooth 4.2, with antennas, installed in a notebook Portégé inedito.Toshiba X20W
His name is the Toshiba Portégé X20W-D and, by the sketch attached to the documentation, would seem to be a convertible device with a special hinge, which allows you to rotate the display up to 360 degrees for use in four different modes: laptop, tablet, stand and tent. The information seems to be confirmed by the description of the test, which speaks of a “2-in-1 PC / Tablet”. It is thus the first of Toshiba Portégé convertible, after the launch of detachable Portege Z20T-C and a tablet stand-alone Portégé WT20, never arrived in our country.
The FCC database does not offer us much more information on the notebook, but we can imagine that it can be equipped with a display of 12.5 inches (like the entire seventh-generation family Portégé 12) high-resolution and Intel Core processors (Kaby Lake) probably Y-series. Difficult to determine at this time whether it is a fanless system (fan-free) or active cooling, but the bottom of the convertible can be seen only a small ventilation grille which suggests an internal fan.
The passage in the certification corridors makes us think of a launch (almost) imminent, at least in the US, so why not take advantage of CES 2017 in Las Vegas? We will be back in the coming weeks.
