Dynabook Portégé X40-J Windows 10 laptop is powered by Intel Tiger Lake
Dynabook may not be a very popular name in the USA, but make no mistake, it is by no means a new manufacturer. Please know that Dynabook has essentially taken over Toshiba's USA laptop business, but the quality and reliability remains. If you are in the market for a premium Windows 10 laptop for home or business, Dynabook is a brand that should be on your list along with companies like Dell or HP.
Today, Dynabook unveils the Portégé X40-J -- a laptop that is powered by Intel Tiger Lake (11th generation Core) processors. It is available with a Core i3-1115G4, i5-1135G7, or i7-1165G7. It can be configured with up to 32GB RAM and up to a 1TB NVMe SSD.
The 14-inch 1080p screen can be had in either touch or non-touch options. The aluminum chassis is very durable, and the machine is MIL-STD-810G rated. It has modern features like Thunderbolt 4, Wi-Fi 6, a fingerprint reader, and an IR camera for Windows Hello. The two USB-C ports are TB4 compatible, but you also get USB-A ports for connecting legacy devices. The 3.09 pound Portégé X40-J also has a headset jack and micro SD card reader.
"Featuring a mystic blue, aluminum-based design, the Portégé X40-J is a premium 14-inch professional laptop that provides an uncompromising blend of style, all-day productivity and modern features. Powered by an 11th Gen Intel Core processor and Intel Iris Xe graphics engine, the Portégé X40-J offers exceptional performance, discrete-level graphics and enterprise-grade security. Configurable to up to 32GB of dual-channel memory and reinforced with ultra-fast SSD storage, Wi-Fi 6 (Gig+) and Thunderbolt 4 certified USB Type-C ports, the Portégé X40-J offers unyielding performance, high-speed connectivity and fast data transfers," says Dynabook.
The manufacturer further says, "The vibrant 14-inch, narrow-bezel display of the Portégé X40-J is available with either an FHD IPS screen for rich visuals, a multi-touch screen for modern navigation or a Dynamic Privacy Screen for increased privacy. The laptop also features an integrated webcam privacy shutter to safeguard users against unwanted access. The display also features a 180-degree hinge to allow the screen to lay flat for easy sharing. This Microsoft Secured-core PC employs advanced encryption, face and fingerprint recognition to help fortify against security threats. With a new, robust design and long-lasting battery, the Portégé X40-J delivers up to a 13.8 hours of battery life rating."
So, how much does the elegant Dynabook Portégé X40-J cost? It starts at $1,299.99, meaning you can expect to pay much more if you want top specs like the Intel Core i7 and 32GB of RAM. Thankfully, if you do want to buy it, you won't have to wait long -- it will be available for purchase next month, in November.
