Packing Outstanding Performance with an Upscale Design that Stands Out, the Portégé X40-K Fosters Uncompromising Productivity and Portability for the Modern Workplace
IRVINE, Calif., – April 5, 2022 – Ringing in a new era of premium business computing, Dynabook Americas, Inc., formerly Toshiba PC Company, today announced the all-new, ultra-premium 14-inch Portégé® X40-K. Benefitting from new hybrid-architecture 12th Gen Intel® Core™ P-Series 28W processor options, Windows 11 Pro and a skillfully crafted dark blue aluminum chassis that is both stylish and durable, this new laptop boasts greater performance, uncompromising portability and robust security.
“With a more dispersed workforce becoming the norm for businesses, IT departments are challenged with procuring computing solutions that offer the best mix of portability, performance, and productivity features. Our premium 14-inch Portégé X40-K was designed specifically for this,” said James Robbins, general manager, Dynabook Americas, Inc. “This new laptop checks all the right boxes for customers. It’s lightweight, powerful, secure, and loaded with features. Furthermore, it is very stylish, which is something modern buyers demand, and comes reinforced with a durable aluminum chassis and a warranty that ensures these laptops continue fostering years of worry-free productivity.”
The New Look of Premium
Featuring a new, compact, dark blue aluminum chassis with diamond cut perimeter edges, the Portégé X40-K is the perfect mix of style, form, and function. Created with the hybrid workplace in mind, the laptop excels in portability, measuring just 17.9mm thin and weighing under 3.2 pounds. Though thin and light, it was engineered and tested to MIL-STD-810H standards for strength and durability to ensure robust endurance to the rigors of daily use in or out of the office. Opening the lid exposes a vibrant, thin-bezel 14-inch IPS or multi-touch display, premium backlit keyboard, and large multi-touch ClickPad embedded into a comfortable aluminum palm rest – all of which exudes quality craftsmanship.
With Great Power Comes Great Productivity
With full-performance 28-watt 12th Gen Intel® Core™ processor options, the Portégé X40-K benefits from the massive performance boost and enhanced efficiency afforded by Intel’s all-new hybrid architecture. Configurable with Core™ i5 or i7 CPUs, up to 64GB of memory and reinforced with ultra-fast SSD storage, Wi-Fi 6E and Thunderbolt™ 4, the Portégé X40-K delivers exceptional performance for multi-tasking. Intel® Iris® Xe graphics adds crisp and smooth video performance, support for up to four external 4K displays, and enhanced security.
A variety of ports, including full-size HDMI®, Gigabit LAN, 3.5mm audio and USB-A, as well as a microSD™ card slot provide convenient, adapter-free expansion. When not in use, Sleep & Charge technology keeps a USB port powered, allowing the laptop to charge a smartphone and other accessories.
Configured For Your Business Needs
The Portégé X40-K can be pre-configured with Windows 11 Pro, which offers tons of enhanced productivity and security features, and provides users a more tailored and intuitive user experience than previous generations of the operating system. Windows 11 can be managed with familiar tools and processes, making it a natural upgrade path for any PC user. For businesses waiting to migrate, these laptops can be ordered with Windows 10 Pro, and would be eligible for a free upgrade to Windows 11 Pro when they’re ready to make the transition.
Security Taken Seriously
Among the most secure laptops in the world, the Portégé X40-K meets Microsoft’s strict Secured-core PC requirements and addresses the security and manageability challenges posed by the accelerated shift towards flexible working patterns. Dynabook’s proprietary BIOS offers another extensive security layer to mitigate BIOS-level security threats, while numerous integrated features like Trusted Platform Module (TPM) 2.0, enterprise-grade encryption and optional Windows Hello fingerprint and face authentication provide unrelenting protection against data, device and identity threats.Even with a distributed workforce, IT departments are easily able to support and manage these laptops using baked-in intelligent manageability capabilities. Intel® Active Management Technology (AMT), as integrated in new 12th Gen Intel Core processors, offers streamlined management of devices – even remotely. Dynabook’s proprietary BIOS can also be upgraded and managed remotely to maintain the highest levels of security.
