Posted on March 3, 2022 by Paul Thurrott in Hardware, Mobile with 1 Comment

Dynabook—formerly the Toshiba PC Company—today announced three new Portégé portable PCs based on the 28-watt 12th Gen Intel Core P-Series processors. They are the Portégé X30L, Portégé X30W, and the all-new 14-inch Portégé X40L.

“The all-new Intel Evo based Portégé X40L-K is truly a masterpiece 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,” Dynabook general manager James Robbins said. “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 highest-performing 14-inch laptop in our history.”

The Portégé X30L Laptop and Portégé X30W 2-in-1 Convertible both debuted in 2020 and offer 13.3-inch displays, and they’ve both been refreshed with 12th Gen Intel Core hybrid architecture chipsets, LPDDR5 RAM, Wi-Fi 6E, and Intel Iris Xe graphics.

The X30L weighs just 1.99 pounds and can be configured with touch and non-touch lay-flat Full HD displays and comes with a full complement of modern and legacy ports. The X30W weighs just 2.18 pounds and offers a world-facing 8 MP camera and Harman Kardon speakers with Dolby Atmos sound.

The Portégé X40L-K is new and, at 2.31 pounds, is the lightest 14-inch laptop that Dynabook has ever made. It features a WUXGA (1920 x 1200) EyeSafe IPS display with a 16:10 aspect ratio, a Tech Blue magnesium alloy chassis, Windows Hello facial recognition, quad speakers with Dolby Atmos sound, a 720p webcam with AI enhancements, and a large 65-watt battery. All three are Windows secured-core PCs.

Dynabook is also announcing a new Thunderbolt dock that supports five video outputs with DisplayPort 1.4 video out at up to 8K at 30Hz, a single USB-C video out at up to 8K at 30Hz, and up to four 4K (3840 x 2160) video out ports (two HDMI 2.0, two DisplayPort 1.4). It also features a Gigabit LAN port, four USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A ports, two USB Type-C 3.2 Gen 2 ports, and an SD card reader.

The Portégé X30L-K starts at $1,379.99, and the Portégé X30W-K starts at $1,599.99. The Portégé X40L-K starts at $1,799.99 and all will include three years of Dynabook’s +Care service warranty with on-site. The Thunderbolt 4 Dock is $349.99 and includes a three-year warranty.

    The name change was dumb, but Dynabook makes great laptops. When I worked in IT I had us switch from Lenovo's constantly breaking trash to Dynabooks. Never once had an issue in the 8 or so months we'd been using them, and although we were on the cheap Satellites, the screen and trackpad were far better than they had any right to be. Users loved them.
