Dynabook launches affordable Satellite Pro C40-J and C50-J Windows 11 laptops
You need a laptop, but don't know which to buy. Should you buy a Mac? Meh, those are good computers, but rather pricey -- the new notched screens are very ugly too. Chromebooks can be a great choice -- as long as your needs are fairly meager. Ultimately, many consumers are still wise to go with good ol' Windows. You know what? Windows 11 is shockingly good, so you should have no qualms about getting a computer with Microsoft's latest operating system.
Today, Dynabook (formerly Toshiba) launches not one, but two "Satellite Pro" laptops running Microsoft's excellent Windows 11 Pro. Called "C40-J" and "C50-J," the former has a 14-inch FHD screen, while the latter has a 15.6-inch FHD display. Both are designed with affordability in mind, but despite reasonable pricing, these thin and light laptops do not look like budget machines.
"The new Satellite Pro laptops feature 11th Gen Intel Core processors, the new Windows 11 operating system, lightning-fast solid-state drive and Dynabook’s +Care Service Warranty With a slender 18.9mm form factor, the 14-inch Satellite Pro C40-J provides up to a 9.5 hour battery life rating and weighs just 3.27 pounds (1.49kg), while the 15.6- inch Satellite Pro C50-J boasts a 19.7mm form factor, weighing in at 3.96 pounds (1.80kg), and provides up to an 8 hour battery life rating," says Dynabook.
The company adds, "For wired and wireless connectivity, the devices are equipped with Gigabit LAN, Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth capabilities. A multi-functional USB Type-C port allows charge, display, connectivity and data transfer with two additional USB Type-A ports, a full-size HDMI port, and a Gigabit-LAN port. A microSD card slot accommodates additional storage needs. The devices feature an HD Webcam, stereo speakers and inbuilt Cortana-enabled microphone."
There are several Dynabook Satellite Pro C40-J and C50-J configurations available. Both machines can be had with either an Intel Core i5-1135G or Core i7-1165G7 processor, 8GB or 16GB of RAM, and a 256GB or 512GB SSD. The laptops will be available this month starting at just $769.99.
