Dynabook has revealed the Portégé X30W-J, the ‘world’s lightest’ 13.3-inch convertible with 11th Gen Intel Core processors.
Weighing 989g, the 2-in-1 device meets 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 X30W-J features 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. Suitable 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.
Josh Newman, vice president, Client Computing Group, Intel said, “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. Our 11th Gen Intel Core processors with Intel Iris Xe deliver the industry-leading performance and uncompromising experience that ambitious, mobile professionals demand.”
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.
Damian Jaume, President, Dynabook Europe GmbH added, “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. 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.”
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.
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 helps to deliver an unrivalled audio/video experience.
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 Portégé X30W-J comes with dynabook’s Reliability Guarantee – this means in the event of the device breaking within the one year warranty, customers get a free repair and a full refund.
The device will be available from November 2020.
