Dynabook Portégé X40-J: New 14 inch ultrabook with Intel Tiger Lake processors, Iris Xe Graphics and Thunderbolt 4 unveiled
The Dynabook Portégé X40-J is Sharp's latest ultrabook, following the release of other Dynabook hardware last month. Sharp has equipped the X40-J with a choice of Intel Tiger Lake processors, along with a 14-inch display. Unsurprisingly, Sharp is pitching the X40-J for business users.
At the heart of the X40-J lies a Core i3-1115G4, Core i5-1135G7 or Core i7-1165G7, which can operate at up to 28 W. The machine can also be equipped with up to 32 GB of DDR4-3200 RAM and a 1 TB PCIe SSD, while all models come with a 53 Wh battery. Sharp claims that this battery capacity should last the X40-J up to 14 hours of battery life between charges, although runtimes will depend on usage. The battery can be recharged up to 40% in 30 minutes though, thanks to a quick charging feature.
Sharp has also equipped two Thunderbolt 4 ports, two USB Type-A ports, an HDMI port, a microSD card reader and a 3.5 mm headphone jack. There is no RJ-45 port on the X40-J, but the machine supports the new Wi-Fi 6 standard, and Bluetooth 5.1.
The X40-J is also MIL-STD-810G certified, so it should withstand the rigours of daily use. Separately, Sharp has equipped the X40-J with an IPS panel that tops out at 1,920 x 1,080 pixels. The company sells 1080p touchscreen and 1080p privacy displays instead of the standard 1080p panel, too.
The Dynabook Portégé X40-J will be available to purchase in Europe and the US from November. Sharp has stated that the machine will start at US$1,300, but it is yet to confirm any European prices.
