Posted on March 22, 2022 by Paul Thurrott in Hardware, Mobile, Windows 11 with 2 Comments

Following the release of new Portégé portable PCs earlier this month, Dynabook—formerly the Toshiba PC Company—is announcing a new generation of Tecra laptops.

“With more than 35 years of experience creating powerful, feature-rich laptops for businesses, our engineers take the time to truly understand the computing pain points faced by professionals, as well as what they need and want in their laptops,” Dynabook general manager James Robbins says. “While productivity and portability remain top priorities, we’ve paid extra attention to making our Tecra laptops feel premium while maximizing their performance, durability, and available features without compromising price competitiveness.”

Dynabook is offering two new Tecra models, the 14-inch Tecra A40-K and the 15-inch Tecra A50-K. Both offer powerful 28-watt 12th-Gen Intel Core P-series processors, Iris Xe graphics, up to 64 GB of RAM, Wi-Fi 6E, Thunderbolt 4, full-size HDMI, Gigabit LAN, and Windows 11 Pro.

The Tecra A40-K is just 18.9 mm thin and offers narrow-bezel displays, a webcam with a privacy shutter, a backlit keyboard, and a large ClickPad with an optional fingerprint reader.

The Tecra A50-K is just 19.9 mm thin and offers a thin-bezel display, a full-size backlit keyboard with a numpad, a large ClickPad with an optional fingerprint reader, and a webcam with a privacy shutter.

Prices start at $1020 for the Tecra A40-K and $970 for the Tecra A50-K. You can learn more from the Dynabook website.

    Toshiba made some great laptops back in their heyday...the Libretto and Portégé series were interesting and distinctive, and the Tecras were some of the most bulletproof systems this side of a Panasonic ToughBook. The Toshiba T1100 was the first modern clamshell laptop.


    These new laptops are...well, they're probably generic ODM systems from Quanta or something, so I'm sure they're fine. They just remind me of how far that Toshiba, the formerly behemoth industry force, has fallen. It's sad.

    Have fond memories of the former Toshiba laptops of the 90s and 00s. They were my computers of choice for a long time, alongside Thinkpads.
