#TECH: World's lightest 13-inch convertible notebook now available in Malaysia

Dynabook Singapore Pte Ltd (Dynabook) has announced that the Portégé X30W-J is now available in Malaysia.

Weighing just 989 grams, this convertible notebook is the world’s lightest 13-inch computer running on 11th Gen Intel Core processors. And, as an Intel Evo certified mobile computing solution, the X30W-J meets the strict requirements for battery life, start-up time, processor, Thunderbolt 4 and Wi-Fi 6 as specified by the latest iteration of Intel’s Project Athena benchmark for the best mobile computing experience.


Loaded with high-performing 28W variants of the 11th Gen 10nm quad-core Intel Core i5 and i7 processors, the notebook is equipped with (up to) 32GB of dual-channel LPDDR4x memory running at 4266MHz, and ultra-fast PCIe SSD storage (up to 1TB) for uninterrupted productivity.

Ideal for today’s increasingly data-intensive business applications, the convertible notebook is also available in configurations with the new Intel Iris Xe powered graphics technology, delivering best-in-class performance, discrete-level graphics, responsiveness and battery life.


With up to 16-hour battery life, the Portégé X30W-J will be ready to go, even without a plug socket in sight. What’s more, its quick charge function will get the battery back up to 40 per cent capacity in just 30 minutes.

The device’s ‘Instant On’ capabilities also allow for rapid wake in under one second through facial and fingerprint biometric activation.

Made to be spontaneous, the laptop has a 5-mode convertible form, which means it can easily 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.

“The launch of Intel’s new Evo platform specification is a significant milestone for the industry in ensuring it meets the requirements of today’s professionals, and it embodies our own commitment to the evolution of device innovation,” said Dynabook’s General manager, product strategy for mobile computing solutions, devices & IoT, Wong Wai Meng.

“The Portégé X30W-J is a great example of our shared philosophies with Intel for providing users with everything professionals need for uninterrupted productivity, creativity and collaboration,” he said.


Connectivity is the lifeblood of the new ‘mobile first’ way of working, and the X30W-J offers reliable wireless connections. Equipped with the latest Intel 802.11ax (WiFi 6) + BT 5.1 module, the laptop also features two brand-new Thunderbolt 4 enabled USB-C ports which enable fast charge, connection to peripherals and data transfer at high speeds.

The Portégé X30W-J 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.

With video conferencing seeing an unprecedented increase, the device is well- equipped as it 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.


The 2-in-1 has been developed to combine the tools needed to meet the demands of mobile working into a highly portable footprint. With a re-imagined design including Mystic Blue chassis and a premium look and feel, the Portégé X30W-J boasts a narrow 4-side bezel and high viewability at all angles of its 360-degree hinge.

Support for AES pen provides a flexible and interactive experience, while its Corning Gorilla Glass construction delivers enhanced robustness.

The device’s backlit, frameless keyboard is equipped with larger keys than its predecessor (16x15mm per key), and its ‘glass-feel’ Precision TouchPad or optional SecurePad with fingerprint reader ensure users will get through even the most intense working days in comfort.

The Portégé X30W-J has been vigorously tested for toughness, with its 17.9mm magnesium alloy chassis having undergone a number of MIL STD 810G tests. The device also features dynabook’s new and improved Airflow cooling system and re-designed rubber footing for further cooling and stability.


The Portégé X30W-J has been engineered to be as resilient internally as it is externally, meeting Microsoft’s Secured-core PC requirements with a range of robust, business-level security measures.

The device combines dynabook’s proprietary BIOS, encryption, as well as face and fingerprint authentication to ensure data is protected from increasingly sophisticated cybercriminals. A webcam shutter and security Lock slot also provide further privacy options.
