Dynabook Europe GmbH unveils its Tecra A40-E, a new 14-inch lightweight Pro-oriented laptop that wants to be ultra-connected.
As a reminder, Dynabook is the new name of the Toshiba PC branch .
The brand has already announced its Dynabook Portégé X30-F and Tecra X40-F last July, and more recently on the Dynabook Tecra X50-F at the IFA 2019 .
It is the Dynabook Tecra A40-E that is announced, presented as an ” easy to carry, secure and ultra-connected laptop “.
It must be said that it displays a weight content of 1.47 Kg lower than its predecessor (1.95 Kg for the Tecra A40-D) and offers autonomy until 13:30 (against 8 hours for the A40-D). Its battery (capacity not communicated) can be recharged for 4 hours in just 30 minutes.
The security part is dedicated to the “home” BIOS coupled to a TPM security chip for 2-factor authentication thanks to the SecurePad with fingerprint reader – a touchpad that integrates a biometric reader.
Integrated as standard, the fingerprint reader can be optionally combined with a Windows Hello-compatible infrared webcam for face recognition and / or a SmartCard reader .
In terms of wireless connectivity, Dynabook provides for its Tecra A40-E Wi-Fi ac (Intel Wireless-AC 8265), Bluetooth but also a 4G / LTE option .
Connectivity also includes a microSD card reader, HDMI video output, Gigabit Ethernet ports and headset / microphone combo audio, 1 or 2 (depending on configuration) USB 3.0 and 1 USB 3.1 Type-C .
The Dynabook Tecra A40-E benefits from a chassis that is robust and tested ” in compliance with very stringent military standards .” This suggests at least MIL-STD-810G compliance.

The display of the Dynabook Tecra A40-E is entrusted to a 14-inch Full HD anti-reflective screen (1920×1080) that ” reduces eye fatigue for workers and ensures performance that is not affected by variable lighting .” We can expect a technology to reduce the blue light emitted by the slab.
