Dynabook, the rebranded business for Toshiba’s old PC unit, is preparing its first Windows laptops.
Expect three upcoming Dynabook notebooks—the Portege A30, the Portege X30, and Tecra X40. The models were previously sold as Toshiba products, but last year, the company sold off its PC business unit to Sharp, which is owned by Taiwanese manufacturing giant Foxconn.

The three new models unveiled on Tuesday have been designed as business laptops. Built with Intel’s 8th generation Whiskey Lake processors from last year, they also include support for Wi-Fi 6, which can offer 10Gbps download speeds.
The 13.3-inch Portege A30, which starts at $1,074, weighs half a pound less than its predecessor, at 2.65 pounds, and is also about 11 percent thinner, at 0.78 inches. You can buy it with an integrated infrared camera to enable face authentication, and a fingerprint scanner. Dynabook also added a USB-C port to the laptop’s hardware, which is encased in a polycarbonate chassis.

The 13.3-inch Portege X30 and the 14-inch Tecra X40, meanwhile, start at $1,399 and $1,289, respectively. The products are fitted inside a magnesium alloy chassis, and come with redesigned fan systems for improved, quieter cooling. The X30 weighs 2.3 pounds while the X40 comes in at 2.76 pounds.
All three products will come installed with Windows 10 Pro when they arrive next month. Interested buyers can go to Dynabook.com, or check out designated resellers such as CDW, PCM, and PC Connection.
