One Solution, Five Modes
The Portégé X20W convertible 2-in-1 laptop features a sturdy 360-degree dual-action hinge, enabling smooth transitions into five core viewing modes—Laptop, Tablet, Tabletop, Presentation and Audience. Tackle the day with a slim, high-performance laptop, flip the screen to conduct presentations, be entertained or create through an engaging tablet and digital inking experience. When changing modes, the laptop smartly switches system settings and uses a smart-locking feature to protect the keyboard and prevent mishaps.
Gorgeous 1080p Display: Visual Impact
A 12.5-inch diagonal, Full HD (1920 x 1080), multi-touch wide viewing angle display packs over 2 million pixels onto the screen. Text is sharper and easier to read. Color and quality is spot on. And to top it all off, the display of the Portégé X20W is reinforced with all-new Corning® Gorilla® Glass 4, which offers higher levels of damage resistance as it’s better able to withstand the shock of accidental bumps.
Amazingly Natural Handwriting
Coupling the 12.5-inch diagonal display with Toshiba’s exclusive TruPen® incorporating Wacom® Feel technology, allows Toshiba’s 2-in-1 convertible PC to deliver a professional grade digital handwriting experience enhanced by an antiglare coating. Toshiba’s TruPen can detect 2,048 levels of pressure, giving users a natural pen-on-paper writing experience, making the Portégé X20W perfect for taking notes, drawing, capturing signatures and completing forms. This makes it nice for Windows Ink. Since the TruPen is battery powered it communicates with the display to enable palm recognition when the pen is in use.

Toshiba developed the Portégé X20W with both biometric and facial
authentication technologies to deliver an advanced level of security and
distance itself from the competition. This is the first Toshiba
computing solution to incorporate the SecurePad™ with Synaptics® Natural
ID fingerprint sensor4 built right into the computer’s
Touchpad. The Portégé X20W features two IR cameras to allow for facial
authentication via Windows Hello face sign-in. These two technologies
