Reviews for the Toshiba Satellite Pro L40

80% Toshiba Satellite Pro L40 laptop Review
Source: Pocket Lint English
Toshiba may not be one of the first company's you think of when opting for a budget notebook but in recent months the company has released a number of interesting, and price-conscious, machines.
The Satellite Pro L40 certainly isn't the most impressive of machines to look at, as the black and silver plastic casing is rather ordinary but it's solid and rugged enough for the average user. Open the lid, which is thick and offers plenty of protection, and you'll find a keyboard sitting squarely in the middle of the main body. Nothing unusual there, but the sheer quality of the keys for a machine of this price certainly is. The L40 has one of the most comfortable and well-built keyboards we've used. The L40 needs to have a good keyboard, as this is a machine best suited to those looking for an affordable word processor, or simply to use for surfing the web and writing emails.

Intel Celeron M: It is a Pentium M with halved level 2 Cache and limited on FSB 400. The characteristic of this processor is the speed, which is hardly slower than an equivalent Pentium M. However it can change the speed not dynamically like the Pentium M and therefore needs without load more current.
It is also available as Low Voltage Version with very small current consumption.

15.4": 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. Nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.7 kg: This notebook is lighter than the average of all notebooks. It is too heavy for sub-notebooks. 14 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
