Lightest notebook with 10th-gen processors

November 2019 IT infrastructure

Dynabook Europe has announced the Portégé X30L-G, the lightest 13,3-inch business laptop with Intel 10th generation processors. Designed for portability – weighing just 870 g – yet packed with features to enhance connectivity, performance, security and user experience, the new device meets and exceeds Microsoft’s Modern Device standard, the benchmark for modern computing devices.

The Portégé X30L-G has been engineered for the modern-day professional, both in the office and on the move. Balancing mobility and durability, its magnesium chassis is incredibly light but also robust. Dynabook engineered the Portégé X30L-G to cover extreme environmental variables with the MIL-STD-810G standards. The laptop is put through military-grade drop, temperature, humidity and dustproof testing to demonstrate its overall robustness, ensuring it can withstand the challenging demands of today’s mobile workforce.

Its Sharp-developed, non-reflective 13-inch IGZO FHD LCD screen offers high brightness with 470 NIT, but with reduced power consumption compared to a standard LCD. The combination of its 14,5 hour (estimated) battery life (with the IGZO screen) and a Quick Charge function which provides 4 hours’ battery on just 30 minutes charge, means that users don’t need to worry about conserving battery while on the move.

Despite its ultra-lightweight and compact form factor, the Portégé X30L-G doesn’t compromise on offering the best user experience, in any location. The latest 10th generation Intel Core processors and a wide selection of SSD storage options including SATA, fast PCIe and Intel Optane enable rapid workflows and increased productivity. In addition, a Micro SD card reader gives further portable storage options, while fast DDR4 RAM memory means the device can easily withstand the demands of today’s business applications.

The device benefits from an extensive range of network and peripheral connectivity options. A USB Type-C port enables users to charge, connect to displays or transfer data through one connection. Although ultra-slim in design, the device is also equipped with a full-size HDMI port and two USB 3.0 ports. An optional USB-C dock also allows one-click connection to minimise cable clutter and rapid hook-up to peripherals. When it comes to network connectivity, the latest Intel 802.11ax (Wi-Fi 6) + BT 5.0 Wi-Fi module supports faster speeds and increased bandwidth, while a Gigabit LAN port powers easy, high-speed access to network resources back in the office.

For any business, security is a major priority. The Portégé X30L-G is highly secure and manageable to protect businesses against constantly evolving firmware and hardware-focused cyberattacks. To safeguard against unsolicited access to sensitive business data, the device is equipped with face and fingerprint biometric authentication via Windows Hello and Intel Authenticate. Other security components like Trusted Platform Module 2.0 (TPM) and Dynabook’s BIOS, engineered in-house, provide a further layer of robust protection.

The Portégé X30L-G will be available from Mustek mid-February 2020. For more information about the Dynabook range visit http://za.dynabook.com/generic/business-homepage/.
