Performance, power and portability defined

SYDNEY – April 21, 2022 – Dynabook ANZ Pty. Limited., today announced the all-new Portégé® X40L-K, a hyperlight 14.0” modern laptop that takes premium, high performance computing to new extremes. The Portégé X40L-K is among the first wave of new laptops from Dynabook to benefit from the enhanced performance, efficiency, and security offered by hybrid architecture using Intel® 12th Gen Core™ P-Series 28W processors, LPDDR5 memory, and Microsoft Windows 11 Pro.

“The all new Intel® Evo™ based Portégé X40L-K is truly a masterpiece in every way you look at it and serves as an impressive demonstration of Dynabook’s nearly four decades of experience in engineering premium laptops for mobile professionals,” said Angela Walker, General Manager, Dynabook ANZ Pty. Limited, “It’s compact, powerful, durable, uniquely stylish and secure. While all impressive, none of these qualities sum up the magic of this laptop. You must hold it to truly appreciate the incredible engineering and craftsmanship that went into making it the lightest and most impressive 14” laptop in our history.”

Ultraportable and Extra Durable

The all new Portégé X40L-K (pictured below) is the thinnest and lightest 14” laptop Dynabook has ever created. Starting from 1.05Kg1 and measuring in at an incredibly thin 15.9mm, the elegant Dark Tech Blue magnesium alloy chassis doesn’t just take style and portability to new extremes, it is also built to endure the rigours of daily business use and engineered to meet MIL-STD-810H standards for strength and durability.

Faster and More Efficient Than Ever

Delivering unprecedented speed and efficiency, this Intel® EVO™ laptop is configurable with new hybrid architecture Intel® 12th Gen Core™ P-Series with either i5 or i7 processors, Intel® Iris® Xe graphics, and up to 32GB of onboard LPDDR5 memory. Integrated Intel® Iris® Xe graphics ensures crisp and smooth video performance and support for up to four external 4K displays, while also adding enhanced security and faster AI processing capabilities to the system. Wi-Fi 6E and Thunderbolt™ 4 enhance the laptop’s performance further by ensuring wireless and wired connections are blistering fast. It also packs HDMI®, Gigabit LAN, and two USB3.2 A ports (with one port supporting Sleep & Charge) for seamless, adapter free wired connectivity.

Maximum Productivity from Anywhere

Beyond its modern styling, space age material and ground-breaking technology, this laptop also offers users a plethora of features designed to maximise productivity from literally anywhere. With an 85% screen to lid ratio, the vibrant 14” Eyesafe® 16:10 IPS display is perfect for those who put in the hours. Developed in conjunction with doctors, Eyesafe technology selectively filters out high energy visible (HEV) blue light while maintaining crisp and vivid colour performance to reduce the impact on the eyes. Doubling down on sound, it features a premium, four speaker Dolby Atmos® audio system tuned to deliver a premium listening experience with an elevated soundstage for movies, music, and games. Great for field use and travel, it’s equipped with a large 65Wh battery that allows it to remain productive throughout the workday.

Fostering a collaborative workspace, Dynabook Online Meeting Assist utilises AI to ensure faces are bright and visible in a wide spectrum of lighting conditions and blur backgrounds and will automatically keep the user’s face centred in the frame. Since these enhancements are built into our software, users can easily turn these features on or off with a quick hotkey button used with any video conference software. The 360° dual array microphones allow voices to be picked up omnidirectionally with equal gain from all directions, giving the user the ability to roam freely around a room or to serve as the hub for multi person conference calls, improving the overall call quality. The AI Noise Reduction isolates and filters out background noises at near and far ends of calls to ensure participants can be heard clearly and effortlessly.

A Refreshed Portégé X30W 2-in-1 Convertible

Dynabook today also refreshed its ultra flexible 13.3” Portégé X30W 2-in-1 convertible (pictured left) which features the new hybrid architecture Intel® 12th Gen Core™ P-Series 28W processor options, LPDDR5 memory, Wi-Fi 6E, and Intel® Iris® Xe graphics.

For artists, entrepreneurs and everyone in between, the Microsoft Windows 11 powered Portégé X30W-K 2-in-1 laptop is designed to foster next level creativity and take care of business from literally anywhere. Boasting a super light, magnesium alloy chassis weighing from under 1kg1, the Portege X30W-K takes ultra light portability to new extremes.

With a premium, modern laptop design that offers the robust flexibility of a tablet, the Portégé X30W-K provides the perfect platform for converting ideas into reality. The 13.3” multi touch display is reinforced with Corning® Gorilla® Glass and offers crisp colours and sharp detail, while also being the perfect canvas with a natural pen to paper feel, thanks to its precision pressure sensitivity, tilt recognition, and the lag free response of the bundled Wacom® digital ink pen.

Windows of Opportunity

The Portégé X40L-K and Portégé X30W-K comes pre-configured with Microsoft Windows 11 Pro, which provides enhanced productivity features that deliver users a more personalised and intuitive user experience than previous generations of the operating system. Built on the consistent and compatible Microsoft Windows 10 foundation, Windows 11 can be managed with familiar tools and processes, making it a natural upgrade path for any laptop user. For businesses that have not yet migrated, these laptops can also be ordered with Microsoft Windows 11 Pro and would be eligible for a free downgrade to Microsoft Windows 10 Pro when ready.

Secure and Manageable for Both IT Manager and the Worker 
Amongst the most secure laptops in the world, these two Portégé models meet Microsoft’s strict Secured-Core PC ™ requirements (available on vPro models) and address the security and manageability challenges posed by the accelerated shift towards flexible working patterns. Dynabook’s proprietary BIOS offers another extensive security layer to mitigate BIOS level security threats, while numerous integrated features like Trusted Platform Module (TPM) 2.0, enterprise grade encryption and optional Windows Hello™ fingerprint and face authentication sign in to help provide unrelenting protection against data, device and identify threats.

Even with a dispersed workforce, IT departments can support and manage these premium devices featuring Intel® 12th Gen Core™ vPro® processors through intelligent manageability capabilities. The Intel® Active Management Technology (AMT) enables easy management of devices, even remotely. Dynabook’s proprietary BIOS can also be upgraded and managed remotely to maintain the highest levels of security.
