Dynabook Europe has released the Portégé X30L-J and the Portégé X40-J business laptops, both featuring 11th Gen 10nm quad-core Intel Core processors.
The X30L-J and X40-J both offer up to 32GB DDR4 3200MHz dual-channel memory, and feature ultra-fast PCIe SSD storage (up to 1TB). 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 use a completely new design with refreshed colours, look and feel across their chassis and hinges, including a 3-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. Both are 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. The X30L-J’s chassis uses a lightweight magnesium alloy for a more sturdy build quality. A new separated Airflow cooling system uses a new rubber footing, which elevates the laptop to provide further cooling, stability and comfort.
Battery life of up to 15 hours for the X30L-J and up to 14 hours for the X40-J gives extended life when out on the road. In addition, quick-charge functionality gives a 40% charge in just 30 minutes.
Connectivity options inlude wireless and Ethernet connection, whilst two new Thunderbolt 4 enabled USB-C ports enable transfer and connection 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.
Damian Jaume, President, Dynabook Europe said: “This pair of new devices 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.”
The X30L-J and X40-J are built using dynabook’s BIOS plus hardware, software and identity protection. Each device offers enterprise-grade encryption, with biometric security features such as face and fingerprint authentication and a webcam shutter for added privacy. Both devices come equipped with a security lock slot. 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.
The Portégé X30L-J and X40-J will be available from November 2020. For more information about the dynabook range please visit: http://uk.dynabook.com/generic/business-solutions
