The recently rebranded Dynabook Europe (previously known as Toshiba Client Solutions Europe) laptop maker has announced a series of upgrades to three devices within its Satellite Pro and Tecra 15” series of laptops, focused on enabling immediate connectivity, enhanced security, and efficient mobile working. The refreshed products are the Satellite Pro R50-EC, Satellite Pro A50-EC, and Tecra A50-EC.

Enhanced productivity and connectivity

A USB-C port adds to a comprehensive array of connectivity options – including HDMI and RGB ports. This allows for USB 3.1 connectivity and subsequently increased data transfer speeds of up to 5GB/s, but also brings the benefit of an increasingly common port to connect with a growing range of peripherals. These include Dynabook’s optional USB-C Dock, which enables fast connectivity with other devices, minimises cable clutter via a single wire and can extend hard drive space with the use of Dynabooks’s external storage drives.

Enhanced security

Featuring multiple layers of security inside and out, such as HDD password and Advanced Encryption (TPM 2.0), the Satellite Pro A50-EC includes the option of SecurePad with Synaptics Natural ID fingerprint sensor, a new touchpad with a built-in fingerprint sensor. In addition to the SecurePad, the Tecra A50-EC also features an IR camera which enables facial authentication via Intel Authenticate and Windows Hello face sign-in. The presence of these biometric features provides an added-layer of protection to the already highly-secure E-Generation series.

Alongside these security options, the Tecra A50-EC’s silent heavy-typer keyboard – designed to withstand demanding workloads – is now backlit, offering the flexibility to type efficiently and accurately in non-optimal lighting environments. These ultra-portable products all boast battery life of up to 10.5 hours.

Damian Jaume, Managing Director, Dynabook Europe, said: “These cutting-edge updates to devices in our business range demonstrate our goal to provide the fastest, most powerful, secure and functional laptops for professionals on the move. We understand that working patterns are evolving and we want to ensure that our technology moves in tandem with those shifts. These updates deliver the right mix of convenience, connectivity and robust security for the contemporary business user”.
