Dynabook Europe GmbH today announces the expansion of its Satellite Pro C-Series with the arrival of the 14-inch Satellite Pro C40-K and 15.6-inch Satellite Pro C50-K. Both devices are powered by the latest 12th Gen Intel Core processors and have been designed to combine performance and productivity with a contemporary look and feel, at an affordable price point.
Along with the existing 13” Satellite Pro C30-K this makes the Satellite Pro C-series an ideal option for SMB and education markets, which now have an increased size range to meet their needs.
“We’re excited to bolster our Satellite Pro range with the new C-Series devices, continuing to deliver a combination of innovation and elegant design at an affordable price tag,” said Damian Jaume, President, Dynabook Europe GmbH. “These new models prove that entry-level devices can meet a range of needs in terms of style, performance and supporting features, without pushing budgets to the limit. The C40-K and C50-K will fit seamlessly into hybrid work and study environments, ensuring productivity, connectivity, and security to users, wherever they need it.”
The Satellite Pro C40-K and C50-K boast a slimline and lightweight frame to maximise mobility, finished in a modern and sleek dark blue colour. The C40-K comes in at just 18.75mm and weight of 1.36kg, while the C50-K provides a form factor of 18.95mm and weighs 1.52kg. Additionally, for peace of mind, the chassis, keyboard, and click pad have been treated with an antibacterial coating to reduce the spread of potentially harmful bacteria by up to 99.9 percent.
These new devices certainly do not compromise on powerful performance and connectivity capabilities, despite their affordability. With the latest 12th Gen Intel Core processors, coupled with DDR4 3200MHz memory up to 32GB and PCIe SSD storage options up to 1TB, workers and students can power through the most demanding tasks, ensuring continuity in work regardless of location. The devices are also equipped with 3-cell 45Wh batteries which can deliver almost eight hours of battery life, so users can confidently deliver without a charging cable in sight.
The C40-K and C50-K devices are engineered with collaboration and productivity in mind. The display can be opened to 180 degrees, so students and workers can easily collaborate on tasks. The two devices also offer a range of ports from a multifunctional USB 3.2 Type-C port that allows charge, display, connectivity, and data transfer, along with a further three USB 3.2 Type-A ports enabling users to quickly connect further peripherals. Further connectivity capabilities include an HDMI port, an RJ45 connector, and a Micro SD card slot. With WiFi 6 802.11 AX, students and workers are equipped with powerful wireless options, supporting the hybrid experience.
The latest expansion of the Satellite Pro C-series continues to empower colleagues and students to stay connected by offering premium audio-visual and conferencing tools. The anti-glare HD or FHD screen provides a seamless full-screen visual experience, which is bolstered by the thin bezel design which optimises the display area. The HD webcam is accompanied by stereo speakers for clear videoconferencing, while an external headphone/microphone slot allows users to plug in as needed. The inbuilt Realtek AI noise reduction tools remove unwanted background sounds both for the user and other meeting participants, to deliver a seamless audio-visual experience even in busy surroundings.
As cyber-security threats continue to evolve, many businesses and education institutions are looking for robust and secure end-point devices. The new Satellite Pro devices meet these needs by offering strong security features such as firmware-based Trusted Platform Module (fTPM) 2.0 meaning that information is encrypted on the device, thus minimising the risk of a data breach.
Robust biometric authentication is delivered via an optional integrated face authentication camera or biometric fingerprint reader. A webcam shutter provides increased privacy, while both devices are equipped with a security lock slot for extra protection. The new Satellite Pro C40-K and C50-K are available immediately.
