Dynabook, until recently known as Toshiba Client Solutions, further expands its portfolio with a new laptop in the Portégé range. The light and robust A30-E targets the business user.

The laptop has a thin form factor and, depending on the model, weighs only 1.2 kilograms. Dynabook emphasizes the combination of productivity and portability. The Portégé A30-E promises up to 14 hours of battery life, and its bright, non-reflective display (with more economical Full HD option) means you can also use it in challenging lighting conditions, such as bright sunlight.

The A30-E is said to have been built with durability and reliability for the modern worker in mind and meets military standards that include height, high and low temperatures, and humidity tests.

The Portégé A30-E is equipped with a PCIe-SSD up to 1 terabyte and the new eighth generation Intel Core i processors. The USB-C port allows for flexibility in connections, possibly via the optional dock. The laptop also features HDMI (VGA via a USB dongle), Gigabit Ethernet and ac wifi.

Dynabook is also making an extra effort in the area of security, with its own BIOS and TPM security chip (Trusted Platform Module) to manage the security of devices at all levels. A wide range of authentication options ensures that the data on the laptop is adequately protected. Both the BIOS and the SSD can be secured with a one-time biometric authentication. An optional smartcard and two-step authentication via Windows Hello (facial recognition or fingerprint) provide further security.

The Portégé A30-E will be available in different configurations from August 2019. Advice prices have not yet been provided. Last week the Portégé X30-F and Tecra X40-F were also announced.
