When you think of a laptop, most likely Dell, HP or Apple come to mind. However, there is one manufacturer that needs to be moved into the more popular laptop category, which is Dynabook.
Dynabook Inc., formerly knowns as Toshiba Client Solutions Co., Ltd., introduced the world’s first laptop in 1985 sparking a revolution to the thinner, lighter and powerful mobile devices that we know of today. For more than three decades, Dynabook has shaped the mobile computing market by pushing technology to deliver value and solutions. Now, a division of the Sharp Corporation Group, Dynabook continues to expand the limits of mobile computing with passion, innovation, quality and reliability.
Why Choose Dynabook?
You might be asking yourself, why this laptop? Here are five reason that Dynabook is a great choice:
Vertical Integration – It’s the only major laptop manufacturer that has their own design, engineering and manufacturing facilities, providing the only units available from any manufacturer that are 100% built by the actual OEM.
Quality, Reliability and Durability – Using the Highly Accelerated Life Test (HALT) which is a combination stress test that include heat, shock and vibration will give engineers the data they need to identify the weak points and improve the quality of the design to perfection. In addition, Dynabook laptops undergo strict military grade testing (MIL-STD-810G) to ensure durability and performance.
Proprietary Basic Input/Output System (BIOS) – The only laptop manufacturer that writes it’s on BIOS. BIOS is the base firmware that is executed when a PC is turned on and initializes the hardware components. In other words, the purpose of the BIOS is to make sure all the things plugged into the laptop can work properly.
Value–Added Customization – Dynabook laptops are engineered with a full range of in-demand features but as we all know, every business is different. Dynabook offers a Configure-to- Order program which enables businesses to order the exact technology they need without paying for features that will never be used. Each laptop can be configured to include: Image load, Asset Tag, Custom BIOS settings.
Industry-Leading Warranty – Their newest warranty, the +Care Service warranty, is a premier standard warranty designed to keep business moving forward. Offered on select laptops, the +Care Service warranty is available for three-years on feature configurations and four-years on some of Sharps exclusive models and all Configure-to-Order models. Support, including Depot Repair, Carry-In, On-Site, and Customer Replaceable Parts all help businesses cut downtime and reduce IT costs.
Laptop vs Laptop Comparison
One could spend hours researching laptops based on weight, performance, RAM, hard drives, price, business or education, even gaming. The frustrating conclusion is that depending on the source, the Top 5 or 10 vary in manufacturer and model. According to The Verge, Macbook Air is the Best Laptop of 2021, with the HP Spectre X360 14 as the Best Windows Laptop. It’s hard to compare between Apple and Windows because its business vs graphics, but in comparing the HP Spectre X360 and the Dynabook Tecra X40-F the differences are minimal, with the Tecra X40-F offering the better buy including +Care Service Warranty 4-Year with On-Site.
