Outstanding Performance with an Upscale Design

Ringing in a new era of premium business computing, Dynabook ANZ Pty. Limited, formerly Toshiba PC Company, today announced the all new, ultra-premium 14.0” Portégé® X40-K.

Benefitting from new hybrid architecture 12th Gen Intel® Core™ P-Series 28W processor options, Windows 11 Pro and a skilfully crafted dark blue aluminium chassis that is both stylish and durable, this new laptop boasts greater performance, uncompromising portability and robust security.

“With a more dispersed workforce becoming the norm for businesses, IT departments are challenged with procuring computing solutions that offer the best mix of portability, performance, and productivity features. Our premium 14.0” Portégé X40-K was designed specifically for this,” said Angela Walker, General Manager, Dynabook ANZ Pty. Limited.

“This new laptop checks all the right boxes for customers. It’s lightweight, powerful, secure and loaded with features. Furthermore, it is very stylish, which is something modern buyers demand and comes reinforced with a durable aluminium chassis.”

Featuring a new, compact, dark blue aluminium chassis with diamond cut perimeter edges, the Portégé X40-K is the perfect mix of style, form, and function. Created with the hybrid workplace in mind, the laptop excels in portability, measuring just 17.9mm thin and weighing under 1.46 kgs*. Though thin and light, it was engineered and tested to MIL-STD-810H standards for strength and durability to ensure robust endurance to the rigours of daily use in or out of the office.

Opening the lid exposes a vibrant, thin bezel 14.0” IPS or multi-touch display, premium backlit keyboard and large multi touch ClickPad embedded into a comfortable aluminium palm rest, all of which exude quality craftsmanship.

With full-performance 28-watt 12th Gen Intel® Core processor options, the Portégé X40-K benefits from the massive performance boost and enhanced efficiency afforded by Intel’s all new hybrid architecture. Configurable with either Core i3, Core i5 or i7 CPUs, up to 64GB of memory and reinforced with ultra fast SSD storage, Wi-Fi 6E and Thunderbolt 4, the Portégé X40-K delivers exceptional performance for multi-tasking. Intel® Iris® Xe graphics adds crisp and smooth video performance, support for up to four external 4K displays, and enhanced security.

A variety of ports, including full-size HDMI®, Gigabit LAN, 3.5mm audio and USB-A, as well as a microSD™ card slot provide convenient, adapter free expansion. When not in use, Sleep & Charge technology keeps a USB port powered, allowing the laptop to charge a smartphone and other accessories.

The Portégé X40-K comes pre-configured with Windows 11 Pro, which offers tons of enhanced productivity and security features and provides users with a more tailored and intuitive user experience than previous generations of the operating system. Windows 11 can be managed with familiar tools and processes, making it a natural upgrade path for any PC user. For businesses waiting to migrate, these laptops can be ordered with Windows 11 Pro and would be eligible for a free downgrade to Windows 10 Pro when they’re ready to make the transition.

Among the most secure laptops in the world, the Portégé X40-K meets Microsoft’s strict Secured-core PC requirements (vPro models) and addresses 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 provide unrelenting protection against data, device and identity threats.

Even with a distributed workforce, IT departments are easily able to support and manage these laptops using baked-in intelligent manageability capabilities. Intel® Active Management Technology (AMT) (vPro models), integrated into the new 12th Gen Intel Core processors, offers streamlined management of devices, even remotely.

Dynabook’s proprietary BIOS can also be upgraded and managed remotely to maintain the highest levels of security.

Dynabook will offer multiple configurations of the Portégé X40-K laptop through the company’s network of resellers or at anz.dynabook.com . Pricing will start at $1410² for the Portégé X40-K. The price quoted is RRP and inclusive of GST.
