South Africa, Johannesburg, 16 November 2021 – Today, Dynabook Europe GmbH announces the Satellite Pro C40-J and Satellite C50-J, an extension to the range designed to combine performance, productivity, and contemporary design features at an affordable price point. To offer additional choice, the new C40-J and C50-J feature the latest 11th Gen Intel® Core™ and Celeron® processors, and will be available in Light Gold and Dark Blue – meeting a broader range of specifications and price points, making them ideal for the budget-conscious professional or student.

Ready for life on the move

Dynabook have carefully engineered the C40-J and C50-J to balance performance and functionality with design and mobility. With a Dark Blue, or Light Gold, sleek exterior, the devices present a modern aesthetic that will appeal to today’s professional or student at home, in the office or on the move. What’s more, the devices go beyond a contemporary-looking design, having been treated with an anti-bacterial coating to limit the growth of potentially harmful bacteria by up to 99.9%1.

Under the hood, the Intel® processors coupled with DDR4 memory up to 32GB* and fast PCIe SSD storage options up to 512GB deliver high levels of performance.

The laptops are easy to transport, and boast a robust chassis designed with the most demanding worker and student in mind. With a slender 18.9mm form factor, the 14” C40-J provides over 9.5 hours2 of use at just 1.55kg*, while the 15” C50-J boasts a 19.7mm form factor, weighing in at under 1.9kg*, and provides over 8 hours2 of battery life – easily enough power for a full working day between charges.

Their anti-glare HD or FHD screens bring a big-screen experience while the large keyboard, numeric keyboard on the C50-J, and ClickPad provide comfort all day for improved user workflows. “Our goal is to use the latest and most appropriate technology to empower our wide spectrum of customers in their daily work – from students to professionals,” said Damian Jaume, President, Dynabook Europe GmbH. “Having access to the essentials for a productive work or study day no longer needs to drain the budget. The new Satellite Pro C40-J and C50-J models deliver a solid toolkit for everyday computing, all in a compact and attractive form factor, without the premium price tag.”

Cutting-edge connectivity, anywhere

The C40-J and C50-J benefit from an extensive range of connectivity capabilities, enabling users to stay connected and productive wherever they may be. For wireless connectivity, the devices are equipped with WiFi 802.11 AC and Bluetooth capabilities. Despite their thin form factor, the devices have been built with a range of ports and connectivity options so users maintain productivity, at any location. A multi-functional USB Type-C port allows charge, display, connectivity and data transfer, in addition to two further USB 3.1 Type A ports, a full-size HDMI port, and Gigabit-LAN port. Furthermore, a Micro SD card slot accommodates additional storage needs.

With the current trend towards hybrid working, the laptops deliver all the tools for staying connected with colleagues, customers and peers. The devices feature an HD Webcam, stereo speakers and in-built Cortana-enabled microphone. A mic/headphone slot or Bluetooth connectivity gives users the option to plug in or pair headphones.

Security users can trust

With data security a major concern for many businesses and education establishments today, the C40-J and C50-J feature firmware-based Trusted Platform Module (fTPM) 2.0 so information is encrypted on the device and reduces the risk of data tampering. In conjunction with user and admin password capabilities which inhibit unauthorised access, as well as sign-in via an optional fingerprint scanner (SecurePad), the device acts as the first line of defence against increasingly sophisticated cybercriminals. A Kensington lock slot gives users the peace of mind that the device will be exactly where they have left it.

The Satellite Pro C40-J and C50-J will be available from Mustek Limited Limited December 2021. For more information about the Dynabook range please visit: https://za.dynabook.com/generic/business-homepage/
