Reviews for the Dynabook Tecra A40-K-101

60% Dynabook Tecra A40-K-101 review: Master of none
Source: It Pro English
Overall, the Dynabook Tecra A40 is something of a middling entry to the business laptop space. Though it scored very well on performance, proving its worth as a portable workhorse, its other shortcomings make it hard to imagine a use case in which it really excels. Battery life and colour accuracy are the clear pitfalls here. Despite this, it's still a capable entry in the Dynabook range, if one without a clear purpose in mind. Light, equipped with a great keyboard and with more ports than you have peripherals, the Tecra A40 is a capable, if not indispensable, laptop for business use.

There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.

The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.
