First introduced by Toshiba (opens in new tab) 25 years ago, the Tecra brand is a staple of Dynabook's growing portfolio of business laptops and these new devices both feature a new sleek and stylish Mystic Blue chassis with a distinct raised wave detail on the lid. The Tecra A40-J and Tecra A50-J also incorporate IONPURE IPL EPA-approved antimicrobial paint to help prevent the growth of bacteria.
Built for secure work
Dynabook's new laptops both feature the company's in-house BIOS with extensive security features, Trusted Platform Module (TPM (opens in new tab)) 2.0, enterprise-grade encryption and optional Windows Hello fingerprint and face authentication. The Tecra A40-J and Tecra A50-J even meet the requirements for Microsoft's Secured-core PCs (opens in new tab). IT departments will also find it easier to support and manage Dynabook's new Tecra laptops as they come equipped with Intel Active Management Technology (AMT) which enables them to be managed remotely.
When it comes to performance, both devices feature 11th Gen Intel Core processors and Intel Iris Xe (opens in new tab) powered graphics. The Tecra A40-J and Tecra A50-J can be outfitted with up to 32GB of RAM and up to 1TB of SSD storage. Both laptops also include Wi-Fi 6 (opens in new tab) and an array of full-size ports including HDMI 2.0, Ethernet, two Thunderbolt 4 enabled USB-C ports, a microSD slot and a USB-A 3.2 port for connecting additional business accessories (opens in new tab).
Whether you're working from home (opens in new tab) or have already returned to the office, Dynabook's new laptops feature an impressive battery life of up to 10.4 hours and a quick charge function means their batteries can be charged up to 40 percent in just 30 minutes.
Dynabook will offer pre-configured Tecra A40-J and Tecra A50-J models but customers can also customize their own devices when both laptops ship in July.
