As promised, Dynabook is bringing new laptops to the Consumer Electronics Show, including a featherweight model that weighs just 1.9 pounds, but which packs a lot of horsepower.

The Dynabook Portégé X30L features a 13.3 inch display, a magnesium alloy chassis, and support for up to an Intel Core i7-10170 hexa-core processor, 24GB of RAM, and 1TB of solid state storage.

Dynabook says the Portégé  X30L will be available in February for $1600 and up.

The notebook measures about 12.2″ x 8.3″ x 0.7″, but despite its compact size, the laptop features an HDMI port, Gigabit Ethernet port, two USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-C ports, and two USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A ports plus a microSD card reader.

It also has stereo speakers with DTS audio processing, a backlit keyboard, a fingerprint reader, and an IR camera with support for Windows Hello face login.

If you’re thinking something has to give in order to cram all of that into a laptop that weighs less than 2 pounds though… you’re right. The notebook has a 42 Wh battery that’s probably not going to provide all-day battery life under most conditions.

Wireless features include WiFi 6 and Bluetooth 5.0.

One thing to keep in mind is that while this computer supports up to a 6-core Intel Core i7 processor, that’s the top-of-the-line option. Dynabook will also offer cheaper configurations with much less impressive specs.

The Portégé X30L will also be available with Core i3-10110U, Core i5-10210U, and Core i7-10510U processor options, and Dynabook will offer a choice of 1366 x 768 pixel or 1920 x 1080 pixel non-touch displays or a 1920 x 1080 pixel touchscreen display.

Yes, it’s 2020 and PC makers are still offering low-res display options on premium laptops.

  1. DOA. I’m a big fan of the Portege line since the 90s, but this one walks in on the HP Spectre X360 and Dell XPS 13 which have significantly less bezels and have very mature market saturation. Toshiba was right to sell off this line of business if their suppliers can only come up with this lame attempt.

    Also, “Dynabook” sounds like a Best Buy house brand. Whoever came up with that should be fired.
