Toshiba launches Tecra X40 notebook for business
Toshiba's Client Solutions Division has just made available a new notebook for business professionals. The Tecron X40 is a 14-inch laptop that runs Windows 10 Pro and comes with a multitude of enterprise-level security features.
These security elements include a proprietary BIOS, face authentication capabilities, a fingerprint reader, BitLocker Drive Encryption, and a smart card reader, among other features. Specs-wise, the Tecron X40 comes with one of various seventh-generation Intel Core processors, although which models exactly are not known. Specific details about the rest of the laptop's specifications are similarly unavailable, but Toshiba mentions available options such as a 1080p multi-touch display, 802.11ac wireless connectivity, solid-state drives, and long-lasting batteries. Toshiba also says it will offer the notebook with "a wide variety of Build-to-Order options" that will allow customers to select their preferred CPU, GPU, and memory and storage types and amounts.
Online retailer CDW does have specific details on the base model of the Tecron X40, at least. It comes with the following specs:
- 14-inch 1080p LED-backlit touchscreen display
- Intel Core i5-7300U 2.6GHz dual-core CPU
- Intel HD Graphics 620
- 8 GB of DDR4-2133 SDRAM
- 256 GB SSD
- Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 8265 wireless card
- 48 Wh battery with up to 18 hours of run time
- 1x HDMI port/3x USB 3.0 ports/Thunderbolt 3 port
- Windows 10 Pro
The Tecron X40 is a fairly portable device, measuring 16.9 mm thin and weighing 2.76 pounds. Remarkably, it stays easy to carry even though it uses a magnesium alloy Tough Body chassis—that happens to carry a MIL-STD-810G certification—that makes it extra resistant against various forms of accidental or environmental damage.
Prices for the Tecron X40 start at $1,329 for the base model. In addition, Toshiba is also selling a Thunderbolt 3 dock for $300 and a variety of USB-C adapters that range in price from $45-90. All of these products are available from CDW as well as various resellers.
