Toshiba PT474U-03P00S Tecra X40-D Review – The 14 Inch Ultra-Thin Laptop

We are not seeing so many great products from Toshiba in many years, but they are still here providing so many good laptops without we know. One of the best models that worth to mention here is Tecra X40. The machine is truly designed for business purposes with its light, portable, and sleek design. The body and its 14 inch screen provide a good balance between usability and portability at the same time. You are not going to find it as too big or even too small for this case.

I have not touch Toshiba machine for two years, but I am excited to tell you more as it received so many good reviews from users and reviewers. They made some big compliments in few sectors like performance, keyboard, and display. Do those things really that good for the price? You are going to find it soon.

We are going to talk about it further on this article and get our final result about it. To make it easier for you to understand, lets we jump into the article.


You would find that design is not that good in comparable with its competitors, but soon find out that its magnesium alloy chassis looks so good. It looks so simple, but feels premium on this portable design. The entire body also feels tough and durable. The surface is also not too slippery when you are holding it with two hands.

The laptop thickness is only 0.7 inches with the total weight for 2.7 pounds. It’s as one of the slimmest and thinnest machine in the market. I could easily slip it into my backpack without any issue so far.

Moving to the right sides of it, you would see of two Thunderbolt ports, micro SD slot, and HDMI. On the left side, there are only headphone jack, security slot, and single USB port. The connectivity is not big issue here, but I hope they could add more USB port since using of converter for plugging my device is bit tough to do.

Tecra X40-D 21920 x 1080 resolution with 14 inch display is something it should proud here. The color reproduction is accurate and the color looks so natural. I have tried to stream some full HD movies and have not found any issue. The brightness is little dim on this case, but not that much than most of laptops I tested so far.

Surprisingly, the display features of touch panel which is great since making navigation will be lot easier to do. The display needs to be interactive and that the thing that many companies forget to understand. The touch screen feels accurate supports of multiple gestures from Windows 10. I use it rarely, but so useful on handling the tough situation during the conference or meeting.

Audio And Battery Life

Every audiophile should love this laptop because it comes with Harman Kardon speakers. When I listened to many different songs, the sounds producing are consistent. It’s easily fills my small room with its sounds on the highest volume. Sadly, the Dolby DTS sound utility which is coming on the system does not improves its performance and turning off even makes it better. I think this problem is probably the software issue and replacing it with other sounds program will fix the problem.

The performance is great and you could expect to do anything with it, but sadly the battery life lasts for only 6 hours. I am so disappointed that I need to always bring my charger around. This is my biggest disappointment for it and might be the great reason to stay away from it. Just stick with it if you thin 6 hours is good enough.
