Model: The Toshiba Tecra X40-D-10G offers good computing power in a relatively lightweight, travel-friendly format. The Tecra X40-D is a conventional-looking laptop with little in the way of newfangled design features. So, for example, the screen does not rotate but pushes back to a traditional stopping angle of about 157 degrees. The lid is a slate-gray expanse with a barely discernible linear marking and the Toshiba logo discreetly placed in one corner. Open up and there is more gray, and just a couple of slivers of silver. One is around the power button that sits top right of the keyboard and another frames the bottom of the touchpad. The lid has a fair amount of flex, so a protective sleeve is likely to be required when traveling. However, Toshiba says the Tecra X40 meets MIL STD 810G, with its magnesium chassis incorporating a honeycomb design that adds to its physical strength. Toshiba has kept the weight of the Tecra X40-D down to 1.25 kg. The size is reasonable too. The Tecra X40-D measures 332 x 228.9 x 16.9 mm. The screen has a completely matte finish and is a joy to work with for the most part, although horizontal viewing angles, top brightness, and vibrancy could all improve. The laptop has a touchscreen with Full-HD resolution at 1,920 x 1,080 pixels. This resolution is categorized at the mid-range model of the Tecra X40 series.

Under the hood, the Toshiba Tecra X40-D-10G is powered by an Intel Core i5-7200U processor, an Intel HD Graphics 620 graphic processor, 8 GB of RAM and a 256 GB SSD. Toshiba uses a new hybrid air cooling system in the Tecra X40. This has two inlets to pull air in. When the fan activated, twin vents located at the back edge of the base push out a fair amount of hot air. The backlit keyboard is a pleasure to use because it is bouncy and responsive with large, clearly marked keys. Toshiba's characteristic AccuPoint stick sits between the G, H, and B keys and can be used with a pair of extra buttons under the narrow space bar. There are plenty of security features to keep business users happy, including an IR-based camera for facial recognition via Windows Hello, a fingerprint reader built into the wrist rest, and a smart card slot. There is a good selection of ports and connectors. For a long time, Toshiba even included a legacy VGA connector in its business laptops, but this has now disappeared in favor of thinness. However, the system's twin USB-C ports support a VGA adapter. There are also a full-size HDMI port, USB 3.0 ports, and a 3.5 mm headset jack. Both of the USB-C ports can be used to charge the Tecra X40, and the presence of a MicroSD card slot is another welcome feature. Moreover, the Harman Kardon speakers deliver pretty good quality sound.
