A highly portable but highly connected and secure business laptop, the device has been specifically designed to meet the needs of the modern mobile worker. The product completes dynabook’s A-Series family, alongside the recently announced Portégé A30-E.
Built to perform on the move

– with a Quick Charge feature giving 4 hours’ battery life from just 30 minutes’ charging – the Tecra A40-E offers users optimal portability, regardless of their location. What’s more, a 14-inch Full HD anti-glare display reduces workers’ eye strain and means performance is not impacted by variable lighting. The A40-E has also been designed with durability at its core. The device boasts a highly robust chassis and has been tested under rigorous military-grade standards, giving businesses the confidence that the device can endure the demands of a mobile workforce.
“The Tecra A40-E has been developed with all businesses in mind, no matter what their size or industry,” said Damian Jaume, President of Dynabook Europe GmbH. “The launch of this device demonstrates our commitment to innovate within the European business PC market and broaden our range of user-centric devices, following on from our company rebrand.”
Safeguarding against security threats
The A40-E has been developed with a range of robust, in-built security measures to give businesses peace of mind that they are safeguarded against potential security issues. Dynabook’s in-house built BIOS provides enterprise-grade security. This alongside a Trusted Platform Module (TPM), which stores data safely, gives further reassurance against data breaches. Two-factor authentication access also protects against unsolicited logins should the device be lost or stolen. A SecurePad with fingerprint reader is included as standard, with optional Smart Card reader and face recognition also available.
Convenient connectivity, powerful performance
Thanks to a variety of connectivity and performance enhancing features, the device is well-suited for workers either in the office or on the move. The A40-E boasts a USB Type-C port and, depending on configuration, one or two further USB 3.1 ports, along with Gigabit LAN, HDMI port, and micro-SD slot. An optional USB-C dock provides further connectivity options. The device’s Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 8265 Wi-Fi Antenna configuration enables fast internet connection. Optional LTE also ensures internet is available to employees on the go.
The device is also equipped with an 8th generation Intel® Core™ processor and a range of storage capabilities including three SSD options – 256GB, 512GB, 1TB PCIe – to enable high performance and efficient workflows whatever budgetary and capacity requirements a business may have.
