• 13.3”Portégé X30L-J couples high-powered 28W processors with a lightweight form factor
  • 14” Portégé X40-J engineered with latest Intel® technologies and brand new design features for the new mobile working era

27th October 2020, Dubai, United Arab Emirates Today, Dynabook Europe GmbH reveals two new business devices in its premium Portégé range – the Portégé X30L-J, weighing in at just 906g, and the Portégé X40-J. Both devices feature 11th Gen Intel® Core™ processors and bring together superb performance, graphics, responsiveness, and battery life, in lightweight and ultra-mobile yet robust form factors.

Speedy and slim

The new models benefit from the latest 11th Generation 10nm quad-core Intel® Core™ processors. The high power 28 Watt variants of the new i3, i5 and i7 processors have been expertly engineered into this pair of slimline devices to offer optimal performance for mobile users. The X30L-J and X40-J both offer fast 32GB DDR4 3200MHz dual-channel memory, and are reinforced with ultra-fast PCIe SSD storage (up to 1TB) to power through the working day. In addition, both models are available with new Intel® Iris® Xe graphics to reach levels of performance and visuals traditionally associated with discrete graphics.

Durability by Design

The devices are the first to be crafted using a completely new design with refreshed colours, look and feel across their chassis and hinges, including a 4-sided narrow bezel to maximise the screen area and minimise footprint. Both devices offer different screen options including FHD InCell touch and a privacy filter. In addition, the X30L-J offers a high brightness 13.3” Sharp IGZO FHD matte screen with 470NIT brightness and low power consumption. What’s more, the pair are both equipped with a sturdy 180-degree hinge so they can be opened flat on a desk for easy sharing. While a back-lit frameless keyboard and a ‘glass-feel’ Precision TouchPad or optional SecurePad with fingerprint reader provide an ergonomic user experience.

The new Portégé devices have also been designed to meet the MIL STD 810G standard to give users the peace of mind that their device can keep up with even the toughest of working conditions. The X30L-J boasts a lightweight magnesium alloy chassis for the perfect balance between rigidity and flexibility. A new separated Airflow cooling system keeps both devices running at optimal temperatures, including a new rubber footing which elevates the laptop to provide further cooling, stability and comfort.

Ready to go

Each device boasts an impressive battery life1 with up to 15 hours for the X30L-J and up to 14 hours for the X40-J, eliminating worries about finding a plug socket on the move. In addition, quick-charge functionality gives a 40% charge in just 30 minutes – providing enough battery for most of a working day in the time of a coffee break. When inspiration strikes, both laptops are the perfect companion to capture a thought with their instant-on capabilities, minimising the time from boot up to action.

Cutting-edge connectivity

Thanks to a range of both wireless and wired connectivity options, the duo adapts easily to any working environment. Each is armed with two brand-new Thunderbolt 4 enabled USB-C ports so mobile workers can charge, transfer and connect all in one go. Further peripheral connectivity is provided by a full-size HDMI port, 2 USB 3.1 Type-A ports plus a 3.5mm audio jack, while a micro SD card slot accommodates portable storage needs. For further connectivity, the X30L-J is also equipped with an RJ45 ethernet slot. From a wireless perspective, each device is equipped with the latest Intel® 802.11ax (WiFi 6) + BT 5.1 module. The X30L-J will also offer optional LTE from early 2021.

“We live in an ‘always on’ and ‘always there’ world, and the evolving demands of both work and life mean users need a device which can not only keep pace with this lifestyle but enhance it,” said Damian Jaume, President, Dynabook Europe GmbH. “This pair of new devices brings dynabook’s vision for continues innovation to life, providing users with everything they need for uninterrupted productivity, creativity and collaboration, wherever they need to be. They are the first devices launched by dynabook since coming under the full ownership of Sharp Corporation, marking a new benchmark of future technology and an exciting new chapter in our rich 35-year heritage.”

Vault-like security

The X30L-J and X40-J join dynabook’s growing portfolio of models that meet Microsoft’s strict Secured-core device requirements, ensuring resistance to current and future cyber-threats. They are built using a robust combination of dynabook’s proprietary BIOS plus hardware, software and identity protection right out-of-the-box. Each device offers enterprise-grade encryption, effortless face and fingerprint authentication and a webcam shutter for added privacy. Both devices come equipped with a security lock slot to provide further peace of mind when a device needs to be left unattended. They are also both configurable with an FHD privacy screen so that screen contents can be made instantly visible to a user’s eyes, using an easy keyboard command.
