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.

Intel HD Graphics 620: Integrated GPU (GT2) found on some Kaby-Lake CPU models (15 W ULV series).
Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.
7600U: Kaby-Lake based SoC with two CPU cores clocked at 2.8 to 3.9 GHz, HyperThreading and manufactured with an improved 14nm process. Integrates a HD Graphics 620 clocked at 300 - 1150 MHz and is manufactured in an improved 14nm process.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
