80% Dynabook Portégé X40-J-11C Review – True blue
Source: Toptenreviews English
Toshiba’s laptop division turned into Dynabook a couple of years ago, but the X40-J range is the first to introduce a change in the overall design. It retains an attractive if understated dark-blue finish, but there are now thin silver outlines on the power key and trackpad. These match the silver metal hinge, which stretches almost the entire width. Also, while it sticks to a familiar aluminium chassis, the plastic base has a classy pinstripe effect.

84.3% Dynabook Portégé X40-K review: Premium laptop with a budget display | Notebookcheck
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.
Dynabook Portege X40 Review: More memory for more productivity
Source: On MSFT English
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.

70% Dynabook Portégé X40-K review: This laptop shines like a sapphire
Source: PC World English
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.

Dynabook Portégé X40L-K review: An ultra-light business laptop that gets a lot right
Source: XDA Developers English
I was positively surprised at a lot of what Dynabook did with the Portégé X40L-K. It’s a very nice-looking laptop that’s also very light and easy to carry, it has a tall display perfectly suited for productivity work, and one of the best keyboards I’ve used. It even has a very loud speaker system, which I did;t expect to be a focus on a business laptop. Performance is also solid, and battery life, while not great, is a bit more tolerable than other machines I’ve reviewed.

Comment

Dynabook:


Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

Intel UHD Graphics 620: Integrated GPU (GT2, 24 EUs) found on some Kaby-Lake-Refresh CPU models (15 W ULV series). Technically identical to the previous Kaby-Lake GPU called HD Graphics 620.

Intel Iris Xe G7 96EUs: Integrated graphics card in Intel Tiger Lake G4 SoCs based on the new Gen. 12 architecture with 96 EUs (Execution Units / Shader Cluster). The clock rate depends on the processor model. The Tiger Lake chips are produced in the modern 10nm+ process at Intel.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Comet Lake:

i5-10210U: Comet Lake based low power quad-core processor (technically identical to Whiskey Lake and still produced in 14nm++). The CPU cores can clock between 1.6 and 4.2 GHz (all 4 cores 3.9 GHz max.) with HyperThreading (8 threads). The integrated memory controller supports LPDDR4-2933 and using cTDP up/down the performance can be adjusted by the OEM (10 - 25 Watt possible, 15W default). Compared to the faster i5-10510U, the level 3 cache was reduced from 8 to 6 MB.

Intel Tiger Lake:

i7-1165G7: An upper mid-range, quad-core processor of Tiger Lake product family. The i7 is designed for use in ultra-light (yet actively cooled) laptops; it is manufactured on Intel's second-gen 10 nm process marketed as SuperFin. The CPU cores run at 2.8 GHz (base clock speed @ 28 W TDP) to 4.7 GHz (single-core Boost frequency). This i7 features the 96 EU Intel Iris Xe G7 iGPU; it was the second-fastest CPU of TGL-UP3 line-up when Intel initially launched the series in 2020.

Intel Alder Lake-P:

i7-1260P: An upper mid-range Alder Lake family CPU featuring 4 performance cores and 8 efficient cores. This 28 W SoC is designed for use in ultra-light (yet actively cooled) laptops. Core i7-1260P's performance cores are Hyper-Threading-enabled for a total of 16 threads. This 12th Gen CPU runs at 1.5 GHz to 4.7 GHz and supports "Essentials" tier vPro features. Last but not the least, Core i7-1260P has a built-in 96 EU Iris Xe GPU, not unlike certain 11th Gen Tiger Lake-UP3 processors.

i7-1270P: A higher-end Alder Lake-P family CPU featuring 4 performance cores and 8 efficient cores along with the 96 EU Iris Xe iGPU and "Enterprise" tier vPro feature set. The CPU cores run at 1.6 GHz to 4.8 GHz. This i7 is designed for use in ultra-light (yet actively cooled) laptops. Its performance cores feature the thread-doubling Hyper-Threading technology for 16 threads in total. Core i7-1270P's Base Power is 28 W.

1.05 kg:

In former time,s this weight was typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal. Nowadays, often 15 inch laptops weigh as much.

1.477 kg:


77.94%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
