Dynabook’s new Tecra A40-K and Tecra A50-K laptops are business-class notebooks with MIL-STD-810H tested cases, support for up to an Intel Core i7-1280P vPro processor, up to 64GB of RAM and 14 or 15.6 inch displays.

While the new laptops aren’t as thin and light as the Portégé models with similar chips that launched earlier this month, they are more affordable, with starting prices around $1,000.

Both the new Dynabook Tecra A40-K and Tecra A50-K will ship in April and the laptops will come with Windows 11 Pro, although they also support an optional Windows 10 Pro downgrade.

Unfortunately a look at the spec sheets suggest that entry-level models may have 1366 x 768 pixel displays, which I’m surprised to see is even an option for notebooks in this price range. But both are also available with up to a 1920 x 1080 pixel IPS LCD display with optional support for touch.

Here’s a run-down of key specs for the new Dynabook Tecra A series:
