✕Clunky laptop attachment for stylus

✕Disappointing keyboard

Delivering a sub-1kg PC isn't simple, however, Dynabook has done precisely that with its Portégé X30W-J, which it claims is the 'world's lightest 13.3-inch convertible', intended for use in tablet mode just as conventional PC mode. That, however, this Evo-badged PC runs on an eleventh era Intel processor, has a respectable exhibit of ports and strong battery life. It appears to tick a lot of boxes, yet we should dive further. 

Dynabook's 13.3-inch Portégé X30W-J runs on 11th-generation Intel Core i7 (X30-J-10C) or Core i5 (X30W-J-109) processors with 8GB-16GB of RAM and 256GB or 512GB of SSD storage. The weight starts at just 0.989kg.

The Dynabook Portégé X30W-J weighs simply 989g, and has a minor work area impression of 303.9mm by 197.4mm, with a thickness of 17.9mm. The case is mediocre - Dynabook says it is 'spiritualist blue' in shading, however to me it looks matte dark. In any case, the form is strong. The cover is moderately thick, and in spite of the fact that I had the option to flex it a bit, it gives very great insurance to the screen. Indeed, the Portégé X30W-J passes MIL-STD-810G and other pressure tests, so it ought to endure the crude of regular daily existence in the workplace or home. 

The pivots are quite firm, holding the screen consistent in any necessary direction. In tablet mode, with the screen completely turned, the upper and lower parts sit conveniently on top of one another gratitude to the situating of the pivots. It is a pity the console doesn't secure out tablet mode, however: it's an incessant worry with 2-in-1 gadgets that the console is powerless against over-pressurizing the keys when the screen is being pivoted, the gadget held in one hand, or worked with on the lap. 

The Portégé X30W-J has thin screen bezels, especially on the short sides. The upper bezel has space for an IR webcam for Windows Hello validation that is furnished with a sliding security cover. There's a second 8MP camera over the line of Fn keys; this comes up short on a protection cover and is intended for use as a back confronting camera in tablet mode. 

The Portégé X30W-J's screen hinge rotates the full 360 degrees. Despite its light weight and slimness, this laptop passes MIL-STD 810G testing.

The 13.3-inch screen is matte, so you will not consider yourself to be in it as you work. Its FHD goal (1,920 x 1,080 pixels) is fine for ordinary working, and I was cheerfully watching the video as well, in spite of the fact that splendor finishes out at 470 nits, which may be an issue for a few. The Harman Kardon speakers put out sound from the lower part of the skeleton and up through the console, so their yield is available in both PC and tablet modes. Volume is sensible, in spite of the fact that sound quality - as so frequently with workstations - is deficient in bass tones. 

The screen is contact responsive, and my Portégé X30W-J survey unit accompanied a Universal Stylus Pen with Wacom AES 2.0 pen innovation. Fueled by an AAAA battery, the pointer is too enormous to even consider being obliged in lodging on the actual PC; all things being equal, it accompanies a holder that clings to the cover and gives a circle into which to space the pointer. Thinking about this present PC's value (well in an overabundance of £1000), this is a fairly shoddy arrangement. 

Although it has large, well-spaced keys, we found the Portégé X30W-J's keyboard disappointing in terms of action, noise and flex. The attachment for the bundled stylus could be more elegant, too.

The illuminated console is something of a failure. The keys are sufficiently huge, and surely Dynabook says the fundamental QWERTY keys are bigger than on the past model at 16m by 15mm per key. They surely make a fine objective for typists, yet the key activity is extremely light, the keys make a fairly noisy bang, and there's huge flex in the console. Despite the fact that max throttle typing by memory wasn't an issue, I wouldn't pick this console whenever offered a decision. 

The touchpad, which has a unique mark sensor in its upper left corner, is little yet responsive. 

There are right now two off-the-rack emphases of the Portégé X30W accessible on Dynabook's UK site. My survey unit was the Portégé X30W-J-10C highlighting Intel's Core i7-1165G7 CPU with incorporated Iris Xe Graphics, 16GB of RAM, and a 512GB SSD, which costs £1,369 (ex. Tank). The section level model is the £1,139 (ex. Tank) Portégé X30W-J-109, which has a Core i5-1135G7, 8GB of RAM, and a 256GB SSD. 

There is a sensible scope of ports and connectors, with a solitary USB 3.1 port and two USB-C/Thunderbird 4 ports, one of which serves as the charging connector. There's a full-size HDMI port, a MicroSD card space, and a 3.5mm headset jack. 

Dynabook cites up to 13.5 long stretches of battery life for my audit model, and my standard test recommends this may be reachable with a reasonable breeze. My three-hour battery summary test includes composing into web applications, working with various program tabs open, web-based music, and some video playback. Under this system, utilizing the suggested screen splendor setting, a completely energized battery tumbled to 74% in three hours, recommending an all-out existence of around 11.5h. Quick charging can convey 40% battery life to a completely released battery shortly. At the point when I charged a half-full battery for thirty minutes, the battery arrived at 62% following 15 minutes and 74% following 30 minutes (+24%).

The Portégé X30W-J is an astonishingly lightweight convertible 13.3-inch PC, with thin bezels giving it a fair screen-to-body proportion (81.3%). Information laborers can expect the entire day battery life and a smidgen more, and the quick charge ability is an or more point. It works well in tablet mode, however, the connection technique for the gave pointer is burdensome. What's more, albeit the console includes enormous, simple to-hit keys, it experiences issues encompassing flex, key activity, and commotion.
