The Tecra X40.

KUCHING: Toshiba Singapore Pte Ltd recently announced the Portégé X30 and Tecra X40, elegantly engineered laptops which provide premium, powerful and secure experiences for professionals.

Complete with exceptionally sleek, light-weight designs, the devices expand on the company’s range of ultra-thin, ultra-light business laptops and have been designed, produced and rigorously tested entirely by Toshiba.

The notebooks follow the recently launched hybrid 2-in-1 Portégé X20W, and benefit from Windows 10 Pro and the company’s longstanding expertise in mobile devices – from their magnesium chassis, to the hybrid cooling technology at work beneath them – which enables the maximum performance from the seventh generation Intel® Core™ processors.

Both laptops will be available in Toshiba’s iconic Onyx Blue and Light Gold color scheme, complete with a slick, hairline finish.

“These additions to our notebook range mark our unswerving dedication to innovating for our business customers, creating products that don’t compromise on performance, connectivity, features, battery life or durability,” said Toshiba Singapore Mobile Computing Solutions & Devices Division product strategy senior manager Wong Wai Meng in a statement issued from Kuala Lumpur.

“The Portégé X30 and Tecra X40 are the result of us channeling our heritage and expertise in mobile devices into every step of the development process, from design and manufacturing, to durability testing, and we’re confident this will shine through in the premium, professional experience they provide.”

The 14-inch Tecra X40 is 16.9mm thin and weighs 1.25kg1, whilst the 13.3-inch Portégé X30 weighs in at 1.05kg and is just 15.9mm thin, 11-per cent thinner and 13-per cent lighter than its award-winning predecessor.

Within their ultra-thin designs, the Portégé X30 and Tecra X40 have exceptionally fast PCIe solid state drives and DDR4 memory, which supports broadband speeds up to 33 per cent quicker than its DDR3L predecessor. Both notebooks also follow in the footsteps of the Portégé X20W-D in benefitting from a premium audio experience thanks to harman/kardon® stereo speakers and DTS Sound™ software.

To help business users keep connected and operate efficiently wherever they are, the Portégé X30 and Tecra X40 have advanced connectivity capabilities, including compatibility with a range of dongles for different usage scenarios.

To maximise usability, the laptops are designed to be used with a new optional Thunderbolt 3 Dock which provides power, enables data transfers and a display port as well as host a range of modern ports to enable flexible, mobile working. This includes two USB Type-C™ a full size USB3.0 and HDMI port, as well as a microSD Card Slot.

The Portégé X30 and Tecra X40 series will be available across Asia this month onwards. For product enquiries, please contact your local enterprise consultants or email to [email protected]
