Reviews for the Toshiba Tecra Z40t-B1420W10

70% Toshiba Tecra Z40t-B1420W10
Source: PC Mag English
The Toshiba Tecra Z40-B1420 has a lot going for it—a fast, fifth-generation Intel processor, good multimedia performance, and a long-lasting battery. The exterior isn't quite as durable or solidly built as the Dell Latitude 14 7000 Series (E7450), and it feels a little slippery to the touch. And while certainly competitive, its performance on our tests wasn't class-leading. That honor belongs to the Lenovo ThinkPad T450s, which remains our Editors' Choice business laptop; in addition to its stellar overall performance in our tests, it also has a hot-swappable battery and a sturdier build.

Intel HD Graphics 5500: Integrated graphics card (GT2) in the Core processors of the Broadwell U-series (15 W TDP).  Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
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.  
5600U: Broadwell-based ULV (ultra low voltage) dual-core processor for notebooks and ultrabooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 5500 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
14":

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.

Toshiba is not present in the smartphone sector. As laptop manufacturer, Toshiba still had 6.6% of world market share in 2014. However it fell to only 1.6% in 2016, making only for the 8th place.
