Dynabook refreshes its Tecra business notebooks with ‘Comet Lake’ chips… and a DVD drive

Dynabook said at CES 2020 today that it will refresh its three families of Tecra business notebooks with new processors, and two machines will include Intel’s latest 10th-gen “Comet Lake” chips. And here’s something we haven’t seen for a while: One of the notebooks, the A50-F, will include an integrated DVD drive.

Dynabook, which is essentially the rebranded operations of Toshiba’s former PC division, will update the Tecra A30-G 13.3-inch notebook, the Tecra A40-G 14-inch notebook, and the Tecra A50-F 15-inch notebook. And you can’t argue with the price: the A30-G will start at $450, the A40-G at $400, and the A50-F at $930.

Light weight continues to be one of Dynabook’s main selling points, with the A30-G weighing in at 2.65 pounds. That laptop is also MIL-STD-810G certified for drop, temperature, humidity, and dust-proof testing. 

At CES, Dynabook also plans to demonstrate an 8K video editing PC, which incorporates a15-inch Dynabook laptop, 8K Sharp monitor, Thunderbolt 3-connected Graphics and Adobe Premiere Pro.
