2020 has led to the rise of Work-From-Home (WFH) policy for many companies out there and a year later, it seems that the trend is likely not going away anytime soon. It is indeed a new environment for many of us to the extent that some may have brought the traditional office mentality back to their home.
However, home is supposed to be a different environment altogether. In other words, we shouldn’t be so strict and need to inject some flexibility when it comes to WFH. So, why not start with having a laptop that has flexibility as its core?
WHO IS DYNABOOK?
Before we go further, let’s get to know who is Dynabook.
Truth be told, the company has actually been around for decades. If you were old enough, you may remember there was a time when laptops were part of Toshiba’s portfolio.
They were under the responsibility of the Toshiba Client Solutions (TCS) but in 2018, the majority of the ownership was transferred to Sharp and TCS subsequently changed its name to Dynabook the following year. It then became a wholly-owned subsidiary of Sharp in August 2020.
The name Dynabook itself has been used by Toshiba as its main laptop series since 1989. While the name might not be new but the company has evolved since then, with the aim to empower your productivity through products that have the best-in-market quality and reliability together with intelligent designs and smart features.
To ensure this, Dynabook operates under four main pillars:
- 100% made in-house, right from design to engineering.
- Ensuring product durability via Highly Accelerated Life Test and in-house quality test.
- Producing highly secure products through a variety of solutions including Dynabook’s own native system BIOS, secure multi-point login, Smart Data Encryption, and Mobile Zero Client.
- Emphasis on the concept of efficiency via simplicity with the usage of common software image, power accessory, and docking for most models, so that you can spend more time on being productive, rather than unnecessarily going through endless options.
With that, let us introduce to you the brand-new Dynabook Portégé X30W-J which goes beyond the traditional definition of a laptop.
Physically, you may be looking at one laptop but the Portégé X30W-J actually has five different form factors built into one. From the standard Laptop mode, you can choose to lay it flat with Tabletop mode, flex it into Presentation and Audience Mode, or transform it completely into the Tablet Mode.
In many ways, the versatile nature of Portégé X30W-J not only brings more value but may also inject some excitement into your daily life, as you expand your horizon further even within the WFH constraints.
INJECT SOME VERSATILITY
Now, let’s dive a little bit further into the five different form factors that Dynabook has designed for the new Portégé X30W-J.
For starters, there is the Laptop mode which provides you with the traditional mobile computing experience. At times, you may have to attend physical meetings in which you can utilise the Tabletop, Presentation, and Audience mode.
There is also the Tablet mode which could become your ultimate note-taking tool or the perfect canvas to sketch your inspiration when you combined it with the Active Pen that also features Wacom AES 2.0 technology and 4,096 level of pressure sensitivity.
But hey, the Portégé X30W-J is not just limited for work purposes though. You are likely at home after all, so you can rope in the versatile laptop to help you in the kitchen by putting it into the Audience or Presentation mode, then show recipe for your favourite meal at that time.
Fast forward to the end of the day and you have just concluded the last conference call for that particular day which means it is now time to slide the built-in physical webcam shutter. This way you can have more privacy to yourself, as you relax after a long hour of work.
Now that you are ready to take a break, just fold the Portégé X30W-J to Tablet mode, open up your favourite video streaming app, and just let the good times roll. If you are a parent, grab the Active Pen to paint or draw on Portégé X30W-J together with your kids.
The Portégé X30W-J also comes with Harman Kardon stereo speakers alongside Dolby Atmos enhancement which means that your audio experience is covered as well.
BE NIMBLE AND AGILE TO FACE ALL CHALLENGES
WFH doesn’t mean that you should be stuck at your desk all the time. In fact, you may want to get off the desk once in a while and work in other parts of your home in order to freshen things up.
This is not going to be a hassle with Portégé X30W-J since it is the lightest^ convertible 13.3-inch notebook around at only 989g*. You can easily shift around your workspace of the day from the table in your room to your kitchen island, living room’s couch, or the lazy chair in your balcony without being dragged down by its weight.
If your kids are around while you are working at home, you will likely appreciate having a lightweight laptop that you can carry around back and forth from the living room to the kitchen and anything in between. But would the Portégé X30W-J be too delicate since it is so light?
That is not the case at all since the Portégé X30W-J has been designed to be durable enough to meet the tough MIL-STD-810G standard, thanks to its magnesium alloy chassis and Corning Gorilla Glass NBT. Furthermore, the hinge of the laptop alone has been tested to survive at least 20,000 open-and-close cycles which involved going the full 360-degrees motion, not just traditional clamshell 90-degrees angle.
BRING IN THE POWER TO GET THINGS DONE
It goes without saying that working from home shouldn’t stop you from getting things done. Your laptop has got to have enough firepower to pull you through from the first conference call of the day to the last spreadsheet of the night and this is yet another reason why the Portégé X30W-J is the perfect WFH machine for you.
Equipped with the latest 11th Gen Intel® Core™ i5 and Core™ i7 processors, the Portégé X30W also offers up to 32GB RAM and 1TB super-fast PCIe solid state drive.
Furthermore, Portégé X30W-J is also a certified Intel® Evo™ laptop which means it has met the stringent requirement for Intel® that not only includes having 11th Gen Intel® Core™ processor and Intel® Iris® Xe graphics but also in terms of design, responsiveness, connectivity, and battery life.
STAY ENERGETIC ALL-DAY LONG
Meanwhile, you may think that working from home means that you have the privilege of being connected to a power plug all the time. Well, that is not exactly the case especially when you have other responsibilities in your home that you need to sort out as well.
Hence, you may still have to get your task done without enough time to scour through your closet and drawer to look for the power brick. Since the Portégé X30W-J is equipped with a 53Whr 4-cell battery, it has a battery life of up to 16 hours#.
This way, it is ready for action day and night. Not only that, the Portégé X30W-J also comes with quick charge technology which allows you to obtain 4 hours of operational time with just 30 minutes of charging.
All in all, the new Dynabook Portégé X30W-J has all the elements necessary to help enhance your WFH experience including versatility, lightweight, and durability alongside the firepower to match. It is a modern convertible laptop that you can depend on to get the job done even beyond your work.
