Dynabook’s computing devices are coming to the region!
September 22, 2019

Following the rebrand of Toshiba’s computer business to Dynabook, we now have a whole line-up of productivity based devices set to launch in the Middle East. And wethings Gitex could well be the moment regional availability and RRP’s are announced.

The devices, first announced by Dynabook Europe, include three new laptops, the Portégé X30-F, the Tecra X40-F and the Portégé A30-E.  The devices are the first to be dynabook-branded in the Middle East following the rebrand of Toshiba’s computer business in April of this year, and further demonstrates the company’s dedication and expertise in the B2B PC market.

X30-F and X40-F

These elegantly designed new laptops are all about seamless connectivity and reliability. With a 13.3-inch display and its ultra-light magnesium chassis, the Portégé X30 is just 15.9mm and weighs just 1.05kg and has a battery life of up to 17 hours¹. The Tecra X40 is just 16.9 mm and weighs 1.25kg – an ultrathin laptop with a 14-inch display and battery life of up to 12.5 hours.

With Modern Standby, the 8th gen Intel Core processor improves battery life up to 17 hours, and the devices also boast Intel Optane Memory. They also have a hardware precision touchpad (PTP) with wake on fingerprint capabilities. Both devices also include WiFi 6, while a newly designed fan improves airflow and cooling by lowering fan noise.


Designed for the mid-market, enterprise, education and public sector segments, the Portégé A30-E boasts a thin form factor and weighing as little as 1.2kg . A bright non-glare screen makes it highly legible in even the most challenging lighting conditions, with the option of low-energy Full HD to deliver an even higher screen brightness. Maximum productivity is ensured by up to 14 hours of battery life and accurate control via the Precision Touch Pad, while a fast boot-up enables work to begin in seconds. Developed for the durability and reliability required by today’s mobile workforce, the A30-E is tested to exacting MIL-STD-810G levels including drop, high and low temperature, and humidity tests.

All three devices: the Portégé X30-F, the Tecra X40-F and A30-E are designed to meet the highest standards for security. In addition to their in-house developed BIOS and TPM 2.0, these models support advanced security features such as Secure Launch protection and System Management Mode protection.

The Portégé X30-F, Tecra X40-F and Portégé A30-E will soon be available in the Middle East.
