Dynabook unveils ultra-slim Portégé X40L-K notebook

Dynabook has announced the Portégé X40L-K, an extension of its premium X series designed to offer an enhanced hybrid work experience.

Damian Jaume, President of Dynabook Europe GmbH, says: “The world of work has fundamentally and permanently changed and it is now more important than ever that devices enable employees to collaborate, connect and seamlessly between the physical and online worlds switch. In addition, we believe that employees need to feel recognized and valued by their employers. By equipping individuals with this impressive and powerful device, organizations can increase the performance and motivation of their teams.”

Beautifully designed to aid mobility

Weighing just 1kg and 15.9mm thick, the laptop is a portable powerhouse. With a fingerprint reader in the power button, users can get to work faster. Featuring an ultra-thin bezel that maximizes screen capacity, users can experience the productivity benefits of a 14-inch 16:10 aspect ratio screen in a footprint comparable to other 13-inch devices on the market. A large clickpad size of 109.6 x 85.6mm also allows for more accuracy and comfort.

Encased in a Dark Tech Blue magnesium body, the laptop offers both great design and practicality. For example, the backlit keyboard offers many practical benefits — its large, spill-resistant keys are sunken to prevent screen smudges and dedicated keys allow easy access to video conferencing features — and are easy on the eye thanks to its color-matched dark blue hue.

The demands of mobile life are no problem for the Portégé X40L-K. Rigorous MIL STD 810H testing proves its resilience to drops, extreme temperatures, shock, vibration and other harsh conditions.

Audiovisual features that improve user experience and security

The laptop answers the demands of mobile working with audiovisual tools charged with AI. The device is equipped with four premium stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos sound. 360-degree dual-array microphones enable omnidirectional pickup of voices from all directions with equal gain, allowing the user to move freely around the room or act as a hub for multi-person conference calls. Audio and visual AI capabilities minimize interruptions and enhance business meetings held in challenging environments. AI Noise Reduction improves overall call quality, isolating and filtering out background noise to ensure participants can be heard clearly and effortlessly. Meanwhile, the AI ​​camera delivers lighting correction, background blurring, and face framing regardless of the conferencing platform used.

Best-in-class performance, superior connectivity

The device is powered by the latest 12th Generation Intel Core processors coupled with up to 32GB of dual-channel 4800MHz LPDDR5 memory to handle the most intensive business tasks. The ultra-fast PCIe Gen4 SSD (up to 1 TB) offers ample storage space and a 65 Wh 4-cell battery delivers up to 11 hours of battery life.

A range of ports and connectivity options fully equip the device for hybrid working. Two USB-C ports with Thunderbolt 4 capability support data transfer, power, and display. Two USB 3.2 Type A and one HDMI 2.0 port, Gigabit LAN, an external headphone/microphone combo jack and a micro SD card slot are housed in this slim device. Wi-Fi 6E and optional LTE offer true “work-anywhere” connectivity. The Portégé X40L-K will be available from Mustek Limited from August 2022.
