South Africa, Johannesburg, 10 November 2020 –
Today, Dynabook Europe GmbH reveals the Portégé X30W-J, the world’s lightest 13.3-inch convertible with 11th Gen Intel® Core™ processors.* Weighing just 989g, the 2-in-1 device meets and exceeds the strict requirements for battery life, start-up time, processor, Thunderbolt 4 and Wi-Fi 6 as specified by Evo™ – the latest iteration of Intel’s Project Athena benchmark for the best mobile computing experience. The Portégé X30W-J provides a complete yet slim and lightweight toolset at the fingertips of the modern mobile worker.
Fast and focused
The X30W-J is loaded with the high-performing 28W variants of the 11th Gen 10nm quad-core Intel® Core™ i5 and i7 processors. It is also equipped with powerful storage and memory options, including up to 32GB of dual-channel LPDDR4x memory running at 4266MHz, and ultra-fast PCIe SSD storage (up to 1TB) for uninterrupted productivity. Ideal for today’s increasingly data-intensive business applications, the convertible is also available in configurations with the new Intel® Iris® Xe powered graphics technology, offering next-generation performance and visuals.
“The Portégé X30W-J showcases how our Intel® Core™ processor technology and experiential innovations with Project Athena, coupled with dynabook’s expertise in mobile computing, have resulted in a dynamic business-class laptop.” said Josh Newman, vice president, Client Computing Group, Intel. “Our 11th Gen Intel® Core™ processors with Intel® Iris® Xe deliver the industry leading performance and uncompromising experience that ambitious, mobile professionals demand.”
Ready when you are
Thanks to an extra-long up to 16-hour battery life1
, users have peace of mind that the X30W-J will be ready to go, even without a plug socket in sight. What’s more, its quick charge function will get battery back up to 40% capacity in just 30 minutes. The device’s Instant On capabilities also allow for rapid wake in under one second through facial and fingerprint biometric activation. For the spontaneous capture of written ideas, the X30W-J’s 5-mode convertible form means it can easily become a tablet and, when paired with Windows Ink Workspace and an optional AES stylus pen, it enables a natural pen-on-paper writing experience. When using the pen, the keyboard is automatically disabled to avoid accidental keystrokes.
“The launch of Intel’s new Evo™ platform specification is a significant milestone for the industry in ensuring it meets the requirements of today’s professionals, and it embodies our own commitment to the evolution of device innovation,” said Damian Jaume, President, Dynabook Europe GmbH. “The Portégé X30W-J brings our shared philosophies to life, providing users with everything they need for uninterrupted productivity, creativity and collaboration, wherever they need to be.”
Fully loaded for optimum connectivity
Connectivity is the lifeblood of the new ‘mobile first’ way of working, and the X30W-J doesn’t compromise here. For fast and reliable wireless connections, the device is equipped with the latest Intel® 802.11ax (WiFi 6) + BT 5.1 module. Optional LTE capabilities are also available for connectivity on the move. It also features two brand-new Thunderbolt 4 enabled USB-C ports which enable fast charge, connection to peripherals and data transfer at high speeds. Packed with further peripheral options, the X30W-J also boasts a full-size HDMI, a USB 3.1 Type-A port, plus a 3.5mm audio jack, while a micro SD card slot provides optional extra storage.
With video conferencing seeing an unprecedented increase in recent months, the device is well-equipped for dispersed teams. It boasts high-quality sound with harman/kardon speakers and Dolby Atmos for sound enhancement, as well as noise-cancelling dual mics. The webcam and a further 8MP world-facing webcam with anti-reflection coating also help to deliver an unrivalled audio/video experience.
Designed to deliver
The 2-in-1 has been developed to combine the tools needed to meet the demands of mobile working into a highly portable footprint. With a re-imagined design including Mystic Blue chassis and a premium look and feel, the X30W-J boasts a narrow 4-side bezel and high viewability at all angles of its 360-degree hinge. The FHD Sharp IGZO matt touchscreen delivers high brightness at 460NIT, yet low power consumption. Support for AES pen provides a flexible and interactive experience, while its Corning® Gorilla® Glass construction delivers enhanced robustness. What’s more, the device’s backlit, frameless keyboard is equipped with larger keys than its predecessor (16x15mm per key), and its ‘glass-feel’ Precision TouchPad or optional SecurePad with fingerprint reader ensure users will get through even the most intense working days in comfort.
The X30W-J has been vigorously tested for toughness, with its 17.9mm magnesium alloy chassis having undergone a number of MIL STD 810G tests. The device also features dynabook’s new and improved Airflow cooling system and re-designed rubber footing for further cooling and stability.
The X30W-J has been engineered to be as resilient internally as it is externally, meeting Microsoft’s Secured-core PC requirements with a range of robust, business-level security measures. The device combines dynabook’s proprietary BIOS, encryption, as well as face and fingerprint authentication to ensure data is protected from increasingly sophisticated cybercriminals. A webcam shutter and security Lock slot also provide further privacy options.
The device will be available from Mustek Limited
