11 July 2019

New Portégé® X30, Tecra® X40 and Portégé A30 Demonstrate the Company’s Commitment to Mobility, Durability, Design and Performance

Sydney – July 11, 2019 – Dynabook ANZ (formerly Toshiba Client Solutions ANZ Pty. Ltd.), today announced its first Dynabook-branded solutions with three laptops and a USB-C Dock. The three laptops include the Dynabook Portégé® X30, Dynabook Tecra® X40 and Dynabook Portégé A30.

“We have evolved and these four products are the perfect example of the direction the organisation plans to the take as Dynabook,” said Angela Walker, Sales and Marketing Director, Dynabook ANZ “The new X Series and A Series laptops push the mobile computing envelope as powerful, full-performance solutions with thinner and lighter form factors. While the USB-C Dock demonstrates our understanding of the modern mobile professional’s connectivity and expansion needs.”

The new 13.3-inch Portégé X30 and new 14-inch Tecra X40 are part of the Dynabook premium laptop collection and include a variety of upgrades in processor, connectivity, instant on/off, storage and cooling technologies. Dynabook added the latest 8th Generation Intel® Core™ VPro™ processors to the Portégé X30 and Tecra X40 to improve connectivity speeds and extend battery life. With a 13.3-inch display, the Portégé X30 measures 15.9 mm thin and weighs from 1.05 kg making it our lightest X Series laptop to date. While the Tecra X40 is just 16.9 mm and from 1.25 kg for ultrathin laptop with a 14-inch display.

The Portégé X30 and Tecra X40 laptops are available with Wi-Fi CERTIFIED 6™, the new Wi-Fi standard based on 802.11ax. This enhancement enables next-generation Wi-Fi connectivity providing higher capacity, coverage, and performance even in environments with many connected devices such as conference halls and other public venues.

Both X Series laptops deliver instant on/off capabilities through the incorporation of Windows 10 Modern Standby. This feature allows optimised software and applications on the Portégé X30 and Tecra X40 to stay up-to-date by maintaining a connection to any available network (Wi-Fi, mobile broadband or wired Ethernet). The ability to remain always on and connected to the Internet, ensures a user’s email, notifications and calendar are current. Not only does this feature boost system wake and resume times, but it also makes the laptop more energy efficient.

To support the new performance features of the X Series laptops, Dynabook re-engineered the fan technology for improved airflow and cooling by increasing the volume of air by 10% and lowering rotation speeds. Called an S-Type fan, this cooling design improvement delivers a quieter running system.

Both laptops incorporate the company’s elegant and durable Onyx Blue magnesium alloy chassis and are designed to pass the Military Durability Testing (MIL-STD-810G) standard. Meaning these laptops can easily handle the rigors of professional mobility. Dynabook also backed both X Series laptops with the company’s standard international three-year warranty.
