Reviews for the Dynabook Tecra A50-J-18Z

Dynabook Tecra A50-J review – Toshiba or not Toshiba
Source: Laptop Media English
Ultimately, the Tecra A50-J is a good purchase. It offers a great number of upgrade options, while the feature package is on a high level. This includes a fingerprint reader, a camera privacy shutter, and an optional IR face recognition sensor. Add a TPM 2.0 chip to the mix, as well as a wide variety of security features. On the other hand, you get two Thunderbolt 4 connectors, a MicroSD card slot, a LAN port, and an HDMI 2.0 connector. All of that is further expanded by two USB Type-A 3.2 (Gen. 1) ports. This is an I/O that would make the ThinkPad E15 Gen 2 pretty envious. At this pace, Dynabook is going to establish itself as one of the leaders in business computing. We would really like to see what kind of innovation have its R&D specialists prepared for the future. Also, we are going to be excited for a gaming laptop from this brand, given the good efforts on the cooling front.

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.

The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.
