[Stuff Magazine] Time to put the Toshiba Tecra X40 to the test
While everyone is busy flipping out over convertible laptops — Toshiba is busy building some high-spec business laptops that should have enough jump in their step to keep up with Dell and HP.
That’s what we expect from Toshiba, and the review unit we received runs an Intel Core i5-7200U processor and comes with 8GB RAM. Which should be enough to keep up with general day-to-day office-bound work and the odd bit of digital nomad cofficing.
With Dell, HP, Lenovo, Asus, Apple and others all looking to dominate this highly desirable sector, what makes the Toshiba Tecra X40-D-10G special?
Business in the front and… no, business all round
This laptop device looks classy and sleek — coming in at only 1.25kg, the magnesium casing is 16.9mm thick and comes in a deep blue black that has a slight tinge of the midnight sky.
The colour scheme is decidedly dark, except for the metal hinges at the back, which only allow the screen to bend over to around 45 degrees. This is no convertible, but then, it’s not meant to be.
