Reviews for the Toshiba Tecra X40-D
Carbon Copy. Toshiba's new Tecra X40-D is the Japanese manufacturer's latest entry in the thin-and-light business market and carries over several features from its smaller brother, the Portégé X30. Is the X40 able to differentiate itself enough, or is it more of the same in a larger package?

The Toshiba Tecra X40-D convertible-hybrid laptop delivers the design, sturdy build, component choices, and overall performance to support its premium price, but a few quirks hold it back.

The entry-level configuration of the Tecra X40-D (SKU D1452), on sale for $1,189 as we were typing this, is very well-priced. Even at its non-sale price of $1,349, competing models from Dell and Lenovo were still several hundred more for a similar component loadout. The Tecra X40-D comes standard with a three-year international limited warranty, too. Bottom line, if you can live with around nine hours of battery life instead of the double-digit numbers offered by the competition, the Tecra X40-D is a good value if you pick the component upgrades with care, and worthy of consideration.

Whether you're paying its starting price of $1,129 or the $2,040 that our test unit costs, you should expect a better business laptop than this. The Tecra X40-D suffers from short battery life, an uncomfortable keyboard and a dim display. It has some good performance and a small dose of style, but those strengths aren't enough to overcome its massive shortcomings.

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.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
