21 April 2016

Sydney, AUSTRALIA – 21 April, 2016: Toshiba's Business Solutions Division (BSD), a division of Toshiba (Australia) Pty Ltd, today announced a new line-up of high-performance, enterprise-class mobile computing and desktop replacement devices designed to meet the performance, mobility and price point needs of Australian business professionals. Optimised for Windows® 10 Pro, with 6th Generation Intel® Core™ dual-core i5/i7 processors and sleek, durable design, the new B2B range is designed to meet the varying needs of all Australian business users – from enterprise IT departments to SME business owners - and deliver first-class security, durability, reliability and extremely smart performance.

Available through Toshiba’s National network of resellers from April 2016, the new product line-up is the first to launch following Toshiba’s merger of its business-to-business (B2B) and business-to-consumer (B2C) divisions into a single organisation to allow sole focus on local B2B operations which has always been a very successful sector in Australia.

“Toshiba is committed to providing innovative and reliable business solutions to the Australian and New Zealand markets. This new range is not only reflective of Toshiba’s commitment to design and innovation, but is aligned to the performance needs of Australian businesses” said Mark Whittard, Managing Director, Toshiba (Australia) Pty Limited. “We trust that customers will enjoy the performance, reliability, advanced security and the impressive craftsmanship they've come to expect from Toshiba for the past three decades.”

Toshiba’s new B2B range is Better Built for Business

Fully optimised for effortless fleet deployment, Toshiba’s new range of B2B devices are the perfect choice for businesses that have a formalised product standardisation process and wish to roll out reliable, secure, durable and powerful notebooks with a single platform across the entire organisation. Standard features across the range include:

Fleet commonality: Fleet deployment is easily manageable as port replicators and AC adaptors are the same as existing models for a single flexible platform for organisational roll-out.
Easy Fleet Deployment: Toshiba's proprietary BIOS which enable seamless integration of hardware and software that few PC manufacturers can deliver. This foundational BIOS software also monitors the PC's internal components to maintain stability, while offering system-level security and built-in countermeasures to prevent unauthorised access.
No compromise EasyGuard® Security: In addition to a spill resistant keyboard designed and tested to help save data and shut down, all new devices feature innovative EasyGuard® Technology, adding multi-tiered security and data protection measures that guard components against accidental bumps.
Sleep and charge: When smartphones and tablets need charging on-the-go, USB Sleep-and-Charge powers up devices even while the notebook or Ultrabooks are switched off or in sleep mode.
Windows 10 Pro optimisation: The Toshiba B2B range is fully optimised to ensure an effortless Windows 10 Professional experience, including a new function key to activate Cortana and dual-array mics to improve the accuracy of the spoken command.
Windows 7 Pro optimisation: With Windows 7 Pro pre-installed in on all new Toshiba models (except Z20) Toshiba have full driver compatibility for the new 6th Gen processor range offered by Intel. Windows 7, 8.1 and 10 Drivers are also available for download from the Toshiba web site.
