Sam Medley,

Toshiba has certainly been busy this week. In addition to announcing a Kaby Lake refresh for several devices in its Portégé and Tecra lines, the company unveiled two new devices yesterday: the Portégé X30 and the Tecra X40.

The Portégé X30 and Tecra X40 are both thin-and-light notebooks aimed at business and enterprise professionals. The 13.3-inch X30 measures in at 15.9 mm (0.63 inches) thin and weighs 1.04 kg (2.3 lbs), while the 14-inch Tecra X40 is only 16.9 mm (0.67 inches) thin and weighs 1.25 kg (2.76 lbs). Both devices will feature 7th generation Intel Core processors, Windows 10, Full HD display panels (1920 x 1080) with multi-touch and Intel 802.11ac WiFi. They will also feature batteries with “extended life ratings.”

As they’re tailored for business users, Toshiba will add some security features to both devices, including a touchpad with a built-in fingerprint sensor the company is calling “SecurePad” and IR cameras allowing for integration with Windows Hello facial recognition software. Toshiba will also fine tune the BIOS on each device to further secure the notebooks from unwanted intrusions.

Both devices feature some advanced I/O as well:

  • Two USB Type-C ports (with display, charging, and Thunderbolt 3 capabilities)
  • One USB 3.0 Type-A port
  • HDMI
  • MicroSD card reader
  • Combo audio in/out jack

The devices will also be able to dock with Toshiba’s upcoming WiGig and Thunderbolt 3 docks, further increasing connectivity options.

Pricing and availability have yet to be announced.

I've been a "tech-head" my entire life. After graduating college with a degree in Mathematics, I worked in finance and banking a few years before taking a job as a Systems Analyst for my local school district. I started working with Notebookcheck in October of 2016 and have enjoyed writing news articles and notebook reviews. My areas of interest include the business side of technology, retro gaming, Linux, and innovative gadgets. When I'm not hunched over an electronic device or writing code for a new database, I'm either outside with my family, playing a decade-old video game, or sitting behind a drum set.
