Toshiba’s new X Series range of laptops launched in South Africa

Toshiba South Africa has launched the Portégé X20W-D, Portégé X30 and Tecra X40 range of laptops at a product experience media event at Mustek’s offices in Midrand, South Africa.

These additions to Toshiba’s laptop range mark its unswerving dedication to innovating for its business customers and creating products that don’t compromise on performance, connectivity, features, battery life or durability.

Complete with ultra-sleek, flexible, light-weight designs, the laptops have been designed, produced and rigorously tested entirely by Toshiba.

They are elegantly engineered which provide premium, powerful and secure experiences for professionals.

“We developed the Portégé X20W-D as part of our drive to create the best hybrid 2-in-1 laptop experience for professionals, from employees in small to mid-size organisations, to large corporate environments – regardless of their location,” said Ronald Ravel, Business Unit Director – PC B2B, Toshiba South Africa.

“The Portégé X30 and Tecra X40 are the result of us channelling our heritage and expertise in mobile devices into every step of the development process, from design and manufacturing to durability testing, and we’re confident this will shine through in the premium, professional experience they provide.”

Recent IDC research highlighted that Africa’s PC market during Q4 of 2016 increased despite a worldwide year-on-year decline of 1.5%.

This shows that there’s still a strong demand for PC’s in the workplace and Africa being one of the few regions with stable growth.

In addition, this past festive season sparked a rise in sales of traditional PCs, as the entire EMEA region experienced a favourable market performance, as laptops grew above the initial forecast.

“One area Toshiba truly dedicates its time on is R&D for innovative technology solutions. With a team of highly skilled engineers and designers devoted to developing cutting-edge technology, we are able to develop systems that are all about revolutionising and enriching all our business user’s needs.

“We are committed to going beyond the limitations and constraints of today’s PC and redefine how you control your systems,” concludes Ravel.

Below is a brief description of the X Series range:
