Business News sponsored by the Samsung Galaxy S22 series:
Today, Dynabook Europe announces two new devices - the Portégé X30W-K and the Portégé X30L-K.
The Portégé X30W-K is a 13.3-inch convertible weighing from 979g*. The Portégé X30L-K provides a complete yet slim and lightweight toolset at the fingertips of the modern mobile worker. Both devices boast an ultralight magnesium alloy chassis for the perfect balance between durability, lightness and strength. A separated Airflow cooling system keeps both devices running at optimal temperatures, including rubber footing which elevates the laptop to provide further cooling, stability and comfort.
Unparalleled speed and agility
The two models come with Windows 11 Pro, and are powered by the latest 12th generation Intel® Core™ processors up to i7 running at a 28 watt power rating. The X30W-K is loaded with powerful storage and memory options, including up to 32GB of dual-channel LPDDR5 memory running at 5200MHz, and ultra-fast PCIe Gen4 SSD storage (up to 1TB) for productivity the modern mobile worker can rely on. The X30L-K, weighing from 904g*, offers up to 32GB LPDDR5 4800MHz dual-channel memory paired with ultra-fast PCIe Gen4 SSD storage (up to 1TB) to allow data intensive business applications to run continuously at high speed. Intel® Iris® Xe graphics enable high levels of performance traditionally associated with discrete graphics.
The perfect companion for mobility
The X30W-K boasts a battery life of up to 13¹ hours, so it is ready to go without the need to rely on a plug socket and the X30L-K has a battery life of up to 11¹ hours. Additionally, the quick charge function allows workers to achieve 40% battery charge in just 30 minutes – enough for most of the working day. With facial and fingerprint biometric activation the device can be unlocked in under a second, ready to capture ideas or resume work.
Enhanced sound and vision
New hybrid working patterns mean that many workers are spending more time in online meetings. The new X30W-K model delivers high quality sound by harman/kardon speakers and Dolby Atmos, while disruption from background noises is minimised thanks to twin noise cancelling mics and AI-assisted noise reduction. The webcam and a further 8MP world-facing webcam with anti-reflection coating delivers an in-person meeting feel for all users, regardless of where they connect.
“Our premium Portégé X Series continues to deliver the very best in mobile computing”, said Damian Jaume, President, Dynabook Europe GmbH. “We live in an ‘always on’ and ‘always there’ world, and the evolving and competing demands in our lives since the pandemic mean users need devices which can not only keep pace with this lifestyle but enhance it.”
Both devices are expertly engineered with a magnesium alloy chassis delivering the perfect combination of strength, lightness and durability. A 3-sided narrow bezel maximises the screen area without compromising on size and portability. The full HD Sharp IGZO non-reflective touch display delivers high brightness up to 400NIT, with a low power consumption. With its 360º convertible format the X30W-K allows usage as either a laptop or tablet, while the X30L-K can be opened flat to create a great companion for collaboration in the workplace. The backlit, frameless keyboard design, Precision TouchPad and optional SecurePad with fingerprint reader allow comfortable all day working.
Furthermore, both devices have undergone vigorous MIL STD 810H testing - further proving their physical robustness.
The X30W-K and X30L-K are engineered to meet Microsoft’s Secured-core device requirements. A combination of proprietary BIOS plus face and fingerprint authentication provides a strong defence against the rising threat of cybercriminals, while a webcam shutter and security lock slot add further security enhancements.
With the shift to hybrid working, connectivity is more important than ever, and here the X30W-K and X30L-K certainly deliver. Each is armed with two Thunderbolt 4 enabled USB-C ports so mobile workers can charge, transfer, and connect all in one go. For fast and reliable wireless connection, the devices boast the Intel® AX211 2x2 Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5.2 for the ultimate on-the-move experience, a model with optional LTE capabilities will also be available later this year.
New Thunderbolt 4 Dock
Also announced today, the Dynabook Thunderbolt 4 dock enables comprehensive, flexible connectivity for the devices you need most. With one cable, the Thunderbolt 4 enables connection of four 4K displays, either via 2x HDMI and 2x Display ports or by connection a USB-C monitor to the additional Thunderbolt 4 DFP port. It boasts up to 8K single video resolution, transfer speeds up to 8x faster than USB3.2 Gen1 at 40Gbps, and fast charge of up to 90W.
The Portege X30W-K and X30L-K and the Thunderbolt 4 Dock will be available from Mustek Limited April 2022. For more information about the Dynabook range please visit: http://za.dynabook.com/generic/business-homepage/.
