Dynabook Tecra A50-J – Top 5 Pros and Cons

Everyone should take Dynabook seriously. The company is doing a lot to make itself as enticing as possible, and this also means creating great devices. It also offers trials, which you can sign up, where you test a laptop of theirs for two weeks and then can purchase it with a discount or return it.

They are also covering the business niche very well, allowing mass production of custom laptops with set specs. Here we have the Tecra A50-J, which uses Tiger Lake, integrated graphics, and decent display offerings.

Today we are presenting you with LaptopMedia’s top 5 picks about the Dynabook Tecra A50-J.

Dynabook Tecra A50-J: Full Specs / In-depth Review

4 reasons to BUY the Dynabook Tecra A50-J

1. Upgradeability

The laptop offers a great level of upgradeability, with two SODIMM RAM slots, which should extend the lifespan of the device for a while. The slots also work in dual-channel mode. For storage, there is a single M.2 PCIe x4 drive, and with M.2 SSDs going down in price, you can get large capacity drives for decent prices.

Here is our teardown video, which shows how to access both the RAM and SSD slots.

2. I/O

The I/O has great coverage with two USB Type-A 3.2 (Gen. 1) ports, one of which also works even while the notebook is off, two Thunderbolt 4 ports, an HDMI 2.0 port, a MicroSD card reader, an Ethernet port, and a 3.5 mm audio jack.

3. Battery life

With a 53Wh battery unit, the laptop delivers 11 hours and 7 minutes of Web browsing, or 8 hours and 10 minutes of video playback. Now, we conduct the battery tests with Windows Better performance setting turned on, screen brightness adjusted to 120 nits, and all other programs turned off except for the one we are testing the notebook with.

4. Performance

In terms of hardware, the device offers five CPU choices with the Core i3-1115G4, Core i5-1135G7, Core i5-1145G7, Core i7-1165G7, or Core i7-1185G7. We tested the version with the Core i5-1135G7, which performed admirably and pretty much matched every other laptop with the same CPU.

The CPU sports the Iris Xe Graphics G7 with 80 Execution Units. It performs really well in the benchmarks that we tested, even outmatching the 96EU version.

1 reason NOT to buy the Dynabook Tecra A50-J

1. Display quality

Lastly, the Full HD IPS panel does more than fine for daily use and office work, featuring good brightness uniformity and contrast ratio, while also not using PWM across all brightness levels, making the panel safe for prolonged periods of use. The negatives about it are mainly in the lack of full or near full sRGB coverage and adequate color accuracy. The panel offers 56% sRGB coverage.

In our accuracy tests, the display measured a dE value of 5.7 with the factory settings, which dropped down to 3.1 with our Design and Gaming profile.

In addition to receiving efficient and health-friendly profiles, by buying LaptopMedia's products you also support the development of our labs, where we test devices in order to produce the most objective reviews possible.

Office Work

Office Work should be used mostly by users who spend most of the time looking at pieces of text, tables or just surfing. This profile aims to deliver better distinctness and clarity by keeping a flat gamma curve (2.20), native color temperature and perceptually accurate colors.

Design and Gaming

This profile is aimed at designers who work with colors professionally, and for games and movies as well. Design and Gaming takes display panels to their limits, making them as accurate as possible in the sRGB IEC61966-2-1 standard for Web and HDTV, at white point D65.


Health-Guard eliminates the harmful Pulse-Width Modulation (PWM) and reduces the negative Blue Light which affects our eyes and body. Since it’s custom tailored for every panel, it manages to keep the colors perceptually accurate. Health-Guard simulates paper so the pressure on the eyes is greatly reduced.
