Dynabook Tecra A40 in review: A whisper in the office...

...drowns out the Dynabook. The extremely quiet laptop shows how much performance can be found in an 11th generation Intel i5 processor when it is installed accordingly. The laptop can score with its high battery life for a mid-range B2B device. Unfortunately, it falls short of expectations in other areas.

Since Toshiba sold its laptop division to Sharp a few years ago, the former Toshiba laptops are once again called "Dynabook", a homage to Toshiba's early laptop brand name. Just like in the 1970s, the current Dynabook devices are supposed to pay special attention to user-friendliness and are primarily aimed at business customers. The Tecra devices are devices with mid-range equipment, which the manufacturer lists under Business Advanced. Our 14-inch test device with the designation A40-J-12E comes with an Intel i5 processor of the 11th generation, 8 GB RAM and a 256 GB SSD. Furthermore, there are current configuration variants with up to 16 GB of working memory, Intel i7 of the 11th generation, 512 GB of hard drive memory and communication options via the 4G network.

Case - Stable notebook in a dignified design

The Dynabook Tecra A40 is characterized by a simple design. The anthracite-colored plastic case is quite sturdy and does not show any weaknesses in workmanship. Only the large chrome branding on the lid acts as an eye-catcher on the device. The screen hinges are quite rigid, so it is hardly possible to open the business laptop with one hand, but it stays in place.

Equipment - Twice Thunderbolt 4 ensures good connectivity

Two Thunderbolt 4 USB Type-C ports, which also support PowerDelivery, allow the laptop to be expanded by the required ports. The other connectivity on the device itself is quite normal for current office notebooks. Except for the somewhat slow microSD card reader, all ports are state of the art. The laptop's WLAN connection is fast and the 0.9 MP webcam is average in its low image quality. On a positive note, the webcam has a mechanical shutter that can be used to protect the user from unwelcome glances. The small metal plate adheres magnetically to the casing and can be slid over the lens.

Maintenance

The cover of the laptop base can be easily removed with a Phillips screwdriver and suction cup. Underneath, it reveals that the laptop can be expanded by another working memory bar and that the WLAN module and SSD are replaceable.

Security

Windows Update
Windows Update

The Intel Core i5-1135G7 of the Dynabook Tecra A40 provides the device with all the latest security features, such as TPM 2.0 and SecureBoot. Thus, the PC is ready for Windows 11. The update center of the preinstalled Windows 10 already offers the computer a corresponding update. A cable lock port on the right side ensures hardware security.

Input devices - Quiet keyboard with pleasant typing feel

The keyboard of the Dynabook Tecra A40 has a good haptic feedback and keys of a reasonable size of about 15 × 15 mm. The key drop of 1.5 mm is also quite comfortable. Activated via the function key, the virtual Num pad offers a good possibility to enter long rows of numbers. The keyboard's backlight has an eye-friendly brightness and can be adjusted to three levels via the Dynabook settings app. With its 10 × 7 cm (~3.9 x 2.8 cm), the multi-touch capable clickpad turns out a bit small, but it works precisely.

Display - Tecra with dark Full HD panel

Screen bleeding Dynabook Tecra A40

The Full HD IPS display in the Dynabook offers a good contrast ratio of 1114:1 with its matte surface. Although it is an IPS display, it is only a very cheap one because the screen cannot keep up with the comparison devices in terms of color reproduction or brightness. With an average of 215.9 cd/m², the brightness is not particularly high. The small sRGB color space is only covered by 63% and even after calibration (profile is linked in the info box on the right) the color deviations are too high, so the panel is not suitable for editing pictures/videos.

The subjective picture impression is okay and the quality is also sufficient for normal office tasks, especially since the laptop will probably often be used with external monitors in many offices anyway. We could not determine PWM flickering and the response times are average.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
31.2 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 18 ms rise
↘ 13.2 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.4 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 80 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (22.9 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
41.2 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 21.2 ms rise
↘ 20 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.25 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 57 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (36.2 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM not detected

In comparison: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 19810 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

The bright autumn sun hardly disturbs the readability of the matte display in outdoor use, although a brighter panel would of course be advantageous. The panel in the Tecra A40 also only shows minor weaknesses in its viewing angle stability in the perceived brightness under sharper viewing angles.

Performance - The Intel Core i5 surprises

The Dynabook Tecra A40-J-12E with its 8 GB working memory and the Intel Core i5-1135G7 is well equipped for office applications, such as word processing and spreadsheets. However, the laptop lacks working memory for larger applications in the field of database management. The integrated Intel Iris Xe Graphics G7 with 80EUs is sufficient for many 3D applications, but the graphics already reaches its limits in more ambitious CAD projects.

Heat sink and fan in the Dynabook Tecra A40

With the Intel Core i5-1135G7, the Dynabook relies on an energy-saving 4-core with an integrated GPU. The processor operates at a base clock of around 2.4 GHz and can provide up to 4.2 GHz for a short time. In the Cinebench loop, the computing core showed constant performances. Due to the high TDP, the i5 can even compete with many i7 models here. Comparing the benchmarks with the Fujitsu LifeBook with the same processor reveals significant differences. Apparently, Dynabook has thought through the cooling of the processor with a double fan so that the Core i5 can show its performance potential very well

System performance

The results of the Dynabook Tecra A40 in the PCMark 10 benchmark are not as good as the strong results of the processor benchmarks would suggest. Two factors play a role here. One is the small size of the working memory. The other devices in the comparison all have 16 GB of working memory. This is reflected in the sub-scores Essentials and Productivity. In addition, the performance of the installed SSD is a bit below average.

But benchmark results are not everything. The laptop runs smoothly without annoying dropouts. Applications start quickly throughout, except for memory-intensive games.

DPC latencies

There are considerable DPC latencies in the Dynabook A40. However, it has to be mentioned here that these problems might be fixed with future software updates. Microsoft's kernel mode driver (Wdf0100.sys) currently continues to cause significant latencies in many devices. Playback of our 4k-60Hz YouTube test video was largely problem-free with only 7 dropped frames.

Mass storage

As already mentioned, the Phison NVMe SSD in the Tecra A40 is a bit slow even for office laptops. The transfer rates collapse especially during many small write processes. Here, too, the Dynabook clearly lags behind the rivals. There seems to be a problem with the SSD's connection, since Phison's hard drive can work faster in other laptops, according to our Benchmark table of SSDs and HDDs. However, CristalDiskInfo reports that the SSD is connected to the system with PCIe 3.0 4x in the best possible way.

Graphics card

The performance integrated in the i5 SoC, the Intel Iris Xe Graphics G7 with 80EUs, is sufficient for an office device. The lack of working memory is once again evident in the 3DMark and 3DMark 11 benchmarks. Thus, the Dynabook Tecra A40 has to admit defeat to the two comparison devices with Intel processors.

The laptop's graphics performance also drops in battery mode; the 3DMark 11 results drop by approximately 1,300 points.

Gaming performance

The internal graphics chip of the Core i5 is only suitable for 3D applications to a limited extent. The lowest quality and resolution settings have to be set for a smooth gaming experience in newer games. In some cases, higher graphics settings could not even be started in games from the F1 series. However, the business laptop's performance is sufficient for undemanding gaming breaks. In the comparison field, the Dynabook notebook is not stand out from the other laptops for the office.
