Dynabook is giving its Portégé X line of premium thin and light laptops a speed boost with the launch of three new models sporting 12th-gen Intel Core P-series 28-watt chips with up to 14 cores and 20 threads.

The new Dynabook Portégé X30L-K is a 13 inch notebook with a starting weight of 1.99 pounds and support for up to a Core i7-1280P vPro processor. The Dynabook Portégé X30W-K is a slightly heftier model with a convertible tablet-style design. It starts at 2.18 pounds. And the Dynabook Portégé X40L-K packs a 14 inch screen and 2.31 pound starting weight.

Dynabook says the new laptops will be available starting in April with starting prices of $1380, $1600 a $1800, respectively. Like I said, these are premium laptops, but those prices do include a 3-year warranty. And it’s also nice to see thin and light laptops that don’t skimp on ports – both clamshell models have full-sized Ethernet and HDMI ports as well as Thunderbolt 4/USB-C ports.

Here’s a run-down of key specs for the new laptops:

  1. Conceptually a 2 lb laptop is aesthetic, yet irl thin bezels are a pain point due to easy breakage.

    1. Thick plastic screens feel cheap small but sturdy, thin glass screens crack and shock, idk about mil std. im a skeptic now.
