Former Toshiba ultrabook division Dynabook has just launched its new G-Series models powered by Intel's Whiskey Lake-U CPUs. These are some of the lightest ultrabooks out there thanks to special magnesium alloy chassis that come in Pearl White and Onyx Blue colors. All models feature Sharp's IGZO 13.3-inch FHD display and the top models offer additional features like fingerprint scanners and preinstalled Windows 10 OSs.

Dynabook was once part of Toshiba’s notebook division, but, last year, the Japanese company was forced to sell off most of the laptop-related IPs to Sharp in order to stay profitable. In late 2018, the Dynabook division got restructured into a separate Sharp subsidiary company, which is still focusing mostly on quality ultrabooks. To kick things off in its first year of existence as a separate company, Dynabook recently announced its new 13.3-inch G-Series ultrabooks powered by Intel’s Whiskey Lake-U CPUs.

The new G-Series family from Dynabook includes four distinct models – the G8, G7, G6 and G5. All models are built on the same SKU and have weights lower than 2 lbs thanks to special magnesium alloy chassis. Additional standard features for all models include:
•    IGZO FHD non-glossy display from Sharp
•    WiFi + Bluetooth 4.2
•    2x USB-A 2.0, 1x USB-C 3.0, HDMI and GbE ports
•    microSDXC card reader
•    DTS stereo speakers + headphone jack

As far as differences go, the G5 is powered by the i3-8130U dual-core / quad-thread CPU from Intel coupled with 4 GB of DDR4-2400 soldered RAM. It integrates 128 GB of NVMe SSD storage, comes with a 720p webcam and weighs in at only 1.7 lbs.

Next in line is the G6 model powered by the i5-8250U quad-core / octa-thread CPU coupled with 4 GB of soldered DDR4 RAM. The NVMe SSD has a 256 GB capacity, while the included battery is supposed to last 9.5 hours. This one weighs around 1.75 pounds.

The G7 and G8 top-of-the-line models are quite similar, both being powered by the i7-8550U quad-core / octa-thread CPU coupled with 8 GB od soldered DDR4 RAM. The only difference is the storage component, as the G7 comes with a 256 GB capacity, and the G8 features a 512 GB NVMe SSD. Both models come with a 1080p IR webcam plus a fingerprint sensor that support Windows Hello and include a 19-hour battery.

All new G-series models are now available, but only in Japan. Prices have not been adjusted for the Western markets, so, for the moment, the G5 is selling for US$1,280, the G6 for US$1,465, the G7 for US$1,650 and the G8 for US$1,830.

I first stepped into the wondrous IT&C world when I was around seven years old. I was instantly fascinated by computerized graphics, whether they were from games or 3D applications like 3D Max. I'm also an avid reader of science fiction, an astrophysics aficionado, and a crypto geek. I started writing PC-related articles for Softpedia and a few blogs back in 2006. I joined the Notebookcheck team in the summer of 2017 and am currently a senior tech writer mostly covering processor, GPU, and laptop news.
