Reviews for the Dynabook Portégé X40-K
The Portege X40-K is the company's premium business laptop retailing for over $1400 USD and yet it comes with a display that's found on budget laptops for almost half the price. The model could certainly use more updates beyond just the new 12th gen CPU.

If you’re a mobile professional looking to outfit your team with a solid, durable laptop that looks good and gets the job done, the Dynabook Portege X40-K is a solid choice for your mobile productivity employees. Thanks to its Core i7 processor, it serves up a good performance and its lightweight chassis makes working on the go a seamless, easy experience. And we’re never going to say no to a comfortable keyboard. However, for the price. I’d expect a display with better brightness and color accuracy as well as a faster SSD and slightly longer battery life. And if you do a lot of video conference calls, you’re going to need to purchase an external webcam. If those things are important, we’d recommend taking a hard look at the Dell Latitude 9420 2-in-1, which is available for $1,459 on Amazon(opens in new tab). Overall, the Dynabook Portege X40K is a solid business travelers’ laptop meant for document pushers who need all-day battery life and a lightweight, easy-on-the-eyes system that will keep up with most workflows on the go.

The Protege X40 is meant for data workers and as such the paltry Iris Xe graphics are great for short burst of GPU heavy lifting in specific applications but is not great for gaming or content editing. With Intel's i7, 12 cores and up to 64GB or memory, users will be choosing to fly through macros-laden Excel docs, excessively large PDFs, multi-gigabyte PowerPoint presentations and several opened Edge and Chrome instances with multiple open tabs, over playing the latest AAA game.

On the whole, Dynabook’s Portégé X40 is a solid pick for a business PC. However you define work, this blue laptop has plenty of oomph to take care of your business. Its solid build quality, fast i7 chip, plentiful ports, and three year standard on-site repair warranty tip this over the edge, making it a package worth considering. Whether it’s a tax write off for your side hustle or an upgrade for your business, the X40 should stay capable for at least the three years it’s covered by the standard warranty, giving you great peace of mind up front.

There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.
The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
74.77%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
