Toshiba Unveils Its Newest Business Laptop

Toshiba is not the first name that comes to mind when you think of a laptop. The company has been far from the list of top laptop manufacturers in the market for some time, but that doesn’t stop them from trying.

Its new Tecra X40 is a business-focused laptop with a few differentiating points over its rivals. The display here is a 14-inch 1080p (1920 x 1080) panel. However, the design is impressively-svelte and weighs 2.76 pounds to help reduce the footprint.

Under the hood, you get Intel’s lineup of 7th-generation processors. The one on the base model is Core i5-7300U. Through “Built-to-Order”, organizations can pick and choose which configurations they want, allowing them to order the machines in bulk quantities ensuring that the specifications meet their demands.

Tecra X40 houses 2133 MHz, 8 GB DDR4 memory, as well as 256 GB of PCIe SSD. For security, there’s biometric verification, Windows Hello for facial recognition, as well as a TPM 2.0 security chip and Intel vPro.

    Toshiba laptop after announcement for Sale is like its Nuclear Power Division. Laptop business fading, with the newer versions of 7th Gen., processor announced availabilities. This commodity product is fiercely competitive with the exception of Apple laptops. I would say the price for the commodity product with some feature as ThunderBolt exception. Intel Capital invests in emerging markets as sub-continent India, Pakistan. Unfortunately Intel office is closed in Karachi and they’d left. Hence no possibility for Intel products local integration, assembly. Only import value added products and send for repair to Dubai etc. It is very important Intel should have their office opened with a US guy blowing farts and strategies for Intel Driverless Unmanned vehicle.
