Dynabook Europe has launched the Portégé X30W-J, which it claims is the world’s lightest 13,3-inch convertible with 11th Gen Intel Core processors.
Weighing just 989g, the 2-in-1 device meets and exceeds the strict requirements for battery life, start-up time, processor, Thunderbolt 4 and Wi-Fi 6 as specified by Evo – the latest iteration of Intel’s Project Athena benchmark for the best mobile computing experience.
The X30W-J is loaded with the high-performing 28W variants of the 11th Gen 10nm quad-core Intel Core i5 and i7 processors. It is also equipped with powerful storage and memory options, including up to 32GB of dual-channel LPDDR4x memory running at 4266MHz, and ultra-fast PCIe SSD storage (up to 1Tb). It is available in configurations with the new Intel Iris Xe powered graphics technology.
It has an extra-long up to 16-hour battery life, with a quick charge function will get battery back up to 40% capacity in 30 minutes. The device’s Instant On capabilities also allow for rapid wake in under one second through facial and fingerprint biometric activation.
The X30W-J’s 5-mode convertible form means it can become a tablet and, when paired with Windows Ink Workspace and an optional AES stylus pen, it enables a natural pen-on-paper writing experience. When using the pen, the keyboard is automatically disabled to avoid accidental keystrokes.
The device is equipped with the latest Intel 802.11ax (WiFi 6) + BT 5.1 module. Optional LTE capabilities are also available for connectivity on the move. It also features two Thunderbolt 4 enabled USB-C ports which enable fast charge, connection to peripherals and data transfer at high speeds. It also boasts a full-size HDMI, a USB 3.1 Type-A port, plus a 3,5mm audio jack, while a micro SD card slot provides optional extra storage.
The device boasts high-quality sound with harman/kardon speakers and Dolby Atmos for sound enhancement, as well as noise-cancelling dual mics. The webcam and a further 8MP world-facing webcam with anti-reflection coating also help to deliver an unrivalled audio/video experience.
