Smarter than before, more stylish than ever

Dynabook ANZ Pty. Limited, announces two new laptops in its Tecra range, the 14” Tecra A40-K (pictured) and the 15” Tecra A50-K. These new laptops have been designed to address all the needs of the modern, flexible worker while reducing the strain on IT managers. Reliable, secure, and easy to manage, this lightweight and stylish duo are the latest addition to Dynabook’s well established Tecra product range.

Secure and manageable for both IT managers and workers

Each laptop has been carefully engineered to address the security and manageability challenges posed by the accelerated shift towards flexible working patterns. A high level of security is assured with both devices meeting Microsoft’s Secured-core PC requirements, on the vPro models. Thanks to Dynabook’s in-house BIOS with extensive security features, Trusted Platform Module (TPM) 2.0, enterprise-grade encryption and optional Windows Hello fingerprint and face authentication, users get a high level of protection against data and identity theft. Both devices come with a camera privacy shutter that adds an additional layer of security where needed.

Even with a dispersed workforce, IT departments can keep close control of workers’ Tecra devices through intelligent manageability capabilities. Intel® Active Management Technology (AMT) enables the easy management of devices*, even remotely. Dynabook’s proprietary BIOS can also be upgraded and managed remotely to maintain high levels of security.

Polished performance 

The Tecra A40-K and A50-K are both packed with performance-enhancing features so users can get the job done fast. The two models come with Windows 11 Pro and are powered by the latest Intel® 12th generation Core™ processors up to i7 running at a 28-watt power rating. This is in addition to a selection of memory and storage capabilities that are available, including up to 32GB of RAM on 2x SO-DIMM DDR4 3200 plus up to 1TB of SSD storage Gen4 with faster speeds. Moreover, Intel® Iris® Xe powered graphics technology boosts performance further, complemented by Dynabook’s quiet dual fan cooling technology including the advanced control to lower fan noise even further.

The duo also delivers impressive battery life, up to 10.4 hours and a quick charge function provides 40% battery in just 30 minutes so users won’t be left short of power when away from the mains.

“Built in line with our rich 35 year heritage, our range of best-selling Tecra devices are world renowned for their robustness, portability and style,” said Angela Walker, General Manager, Dynabook ANZ. “The new A40-K and A50-K are packed with enhancements which reflect Dynabook’s vision for the B2B PC market and future devices, which is to provide products that promise uninterrupted productivity, creativity and collaboration wherever the working day may take them.”

Work in comfort and in style 

Both the Tecra A40-K and A50-K have been developed to balance portability and performance with a distinct, premium design. The lid features a distinctive, raised wave detail while the Mystic Blue anti-bacterial paint coating not only adds a stylish finish but also repels germs to protect users from 99% of bacteria.

With mobility at its core, the A40-K weighs from 1.45kg and boasts a large non-glare 14” HD or FHD screen in an 18.9mm footprint. Meanwhile the 15” option offers a slightly larger screen in a 19.9mm package, for the modern hybrid user.

The pair feature a narrow bezel design and an easy to open hinge enabling a quick start up and ergonomic working throughout the day. The screen of each device can also be folded flat to 180 degrees for easy document sharing. Both also offer touchscreen options for further usability. At the same time, a large backlit keyboard with Clickpad or the optional SecurePad on both devices enables comfortable, all day typing. The A50-K also has a 10 key numeric keypad.

Stay in touch and on track

The new Tecra duo feature new AI tools to increase productivity and collaboration within the workplace, irrespective of the user’s location. Cortana-enabled dual mics offer a new AI noise reduction function, along with an HD with optional FA (face authentication) camera with its own AI enhanced functionality. Along with quality stereo speakers with DTS audio processing, the devices enable seamless video or audio conferencing.

Tough and tested 

Designed and built in Dynabook’s in house research and development centre, all elements of the A40-K and A50-K have been engineered to last. Each lightweight chassis has been rigorously tested in accordance with the newest MIL-STD-810H standards to prove its physical robustness, with drop, temperature, humidity, vibration and shock testing. A spill-proof frameless keyboard provides further resistance to damage.

The full connectivity toolkit 

At the office desk, the home study or even the kitchen table, both laptops offer all the connections a workforce needs to plug into their environment and the wider world. Two Thunderbolt 4 enabled USB-C ports provide fast charge, data transfer and external display across up to four monitors. Users can connect to further accessories with ease and speed via other full-size ports including HDMI 2.0, LAN and additional USB-A 3.2 ports, plus a Micro SD slot. For a fast and reliable wireless connection, the devices boast the Intel® AX211 2×2 Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5.2 for the ultimate on-the-move experience.

The Tecra A40-K and Tecra A50-K are both priced from $1235 and will be available from the end of April 2022. Prices quoted are RRP and inclusive of GST.
