  • The Portégé A30-C, Tecra A40-C and Tecra A50-C provide option of true mobility to desktop productivity
  • Option of 6th gen Intel® CoreTM vProTM processors provide advanced performance
  • Easy manageability into existing IT infrastructures with common docking, images and platform stability

London, UK, 9th November 2015 – Toshiba Europe GmbH today announces three new additions to its business Portégé and Tecra ranges – the Portégé A30-C, Tecra A40-C and Tecra A50-C. In keeping with Toshiba’s Portégé and Tecra values and benefitting from 30 years of laptop development, all new models offer a customisable experience for corporate, government and medium sized businesses with easy IT manageability. Utilising all Toshiba’s in house engineering expertise, the Portégé 33.8 cm (13.3”) A30-C, 35.6 cm (14”) Tecra A40-C and 39.6 cm (15.6”) Tecra A50-C offer an advanced blend of security, performance, protection and manageability.  

For simple integration into businesses and their existing IT infrastructure, the new Portégé and Tecra models provide a common image and platform stability to make it easy to deploy new and current models across the range with minimal manageability required. Common docking throughout all models makes it easy for professions to connect to everyday peripherals and for businesses to enable hot-desking with the same equipment needed regardless of the laptop.

All round confidence

For peace of mind, all models have passed rigorous and independent H.A.L.T (Highly Acclerated Life Test) testing by independent German test institute, TÜV Rheinland® to withstand the pressures of everyday working life. Additional quality standards met to protect a company’s assets and data include both drop testing up to 76cm and a spill resistant keyboard of up to 30ml[1] in case of any accidental knocks and spillages. To enhance security, all three models have the option of a fingerprint reader, dedicated Trusted Platform Module (TPM) 2.0, Intel® Advanced Management Technology (AMT) and smartcard reader making it ideal for corporate or government users to prevent unauthorised access to the device and the data on it.  With Toshiba creating and controlling its own BIOS on all Tecra and Portégé models, additional security reassurance is provided as it significantly reduces the chances of improper access and if an attack is identified, it can prevent the laptop from booting up to restrict information being accessed.

Designed with the business user in mind, every detail has been taken into account to optimise performance and productivity. All models feature up to 6th gen Intel® CoreTM vPro processors to deliver the optimal combination of performance and battery life with hardware enhanced security. When working outside or in offices with bright lights, a non-reflective display is feature on all models to maximise visibility and reduce glare. To enable productivity when working in darker conditions such as on a night flight, all models include a backlit keyboard.   

For full purchasing confidence, in the unlikely event of a fault, the Portégé A30-C, Tecra A40-C and Tecra A50-C are all covered by Toshiba’s Reliability Guarantee[2] that offers a free repair and complete money back within the first year. 

True mobility to optimum productivity

The Portégé A30-C allows users to truly rediscover what it means to be mobile while they work weighing from just 1.5 kg in a unique 33.8cm (13.3”) black magnesium chassis body with a full working day battery life of up to 8 hours[3]. The Tecra 35.6cm (14”) A40-C and 39.6cm (15.6”) Tecra A50-C both offer a larger display size for users who prefer increased screen sizes or are more desk based while still providing up to 8 hours3 battery life for time away from a power source. Both Tecra models come in a steel grey with precious hairline finish.

Tailored connectivity for professionals

All three new models in the new Tecra and Portégé range enable professionals to remain fully connected regardless of their location. Premium Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 8260 enables fast connections and transfers for greater productivity when working online while optional LTE connectivity allows mobile acess when on the move. A host of full size slots including 3 x USB 3.0 ports[4], 1 x HDMI®, 1 x SD card slot and an RGB and GBit LAN port allow for full connectivity and easy transferring of information. The addition of Intel®Wireless Display technology removes the hassle of wires when paired with compatible equipment.

The Portégé A30-C, Tecra A40-C and Tecra A50-C laptop will be available in the UK during the first quarter of 2016.
