Toshiba’s American laptop branch now known as Dynabook Americas is refreshing its Portégé X Series business thin and light laptops with Intel’s 10th gen CPUs, and later on, it will be adding vPro support once the feature becomes available. The refreshed models include the 13.3-inch X30-G, the 14-inch X40-G and the 15.6-inch X50-G.

Dynabook does not reveal the exact hardware specs for these new models beyond the new CPUs, Wi-Fi 6 support, Sharp IGZO bright displays and port selection with two USB-C Thunderbolt 3 connectors. Instead, it details quite a few new security features. For instance, the updated X40-G laptops will integrate Dynabook’s latest Dynamic Privacy Screen Technology that narrows the display field of view for anyone that is not looking dead center at the display. Additionally, the included webcam gets a privacy shutter feature to prevent any camera hacking.

The new models also conform to Microsoft’s Windows 10 Secured-core PC requirements, so each device comes with a proprietary BIOS, TPM 2.0, optional smart card reader, plus IR camera for face authentication and a Synaptics SecurePad fingerprint reader. More vPro security features are expected to be implemented as they become available from Intel.

As far as build quality is concerned, Dynabook’s updated Portégé X series chassis are now MIL-STD-810G compliant, so they offer military-grade durability and proofing for dust, extreme temperatures, humidity, shock and solar radiation. However, this does not make the cases bulkier, as the X30 models have a 15.9 mm profile and weigh only 2.3 lbs, while the X40 laptops are 16.9 mm thick, weighing 2.76 lbs, and the X50s weighs 3.13 lbs and has a 16.6 mm profile.

Prices start at US$1,329 for the X30-G models, US$1,299 for the X40-G models and US$1,399 for the X50-G models. Judging by these price points, the base configuration will most likely offer i5 CPUs. All the refreshed laptops are expected to ship towards the end of Q2 2020.

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.
