Toshiba has announced the Tecra X40-D notebook. The laptop is designed to be thin, sturdy and at the same time offers security features like face detection and a fingerprint reader.
A new 14-inch business notebook series from Toshiba, the Tecra X40-D, now available in South Africa, includes an IR camera for secure authentication via face detection. The Tecra X40-D-110 has a RRP starting from R21 999 and the Tecra X40-D-11Q RRP starts from R23 999.
To ensure the safety of mission-critical data, the Tecra X40-D models have a wide range of security features, such as the SecurePad with fingerprint reader or an IR camera for face detection that supports Windows Hello and Intel Authenticate. A key security feature of the Toshiba Business Notebooks is the self-developed BIOS, which help prevent unauthorised access by third parties.
Toshiba provided the following information:
Both premium notebooks are characterized by an extremely slim and light design. The housing height is only 16.9 millimeters and the weight light is 1.25 kilograms. Thanks to the onyx blue chassis with light gold hinges and a hairline finish, the devices also prove to be a real eye-catcher at the customer’s office as well as in the office. The housing of the notebook is made of magnesium. This is why the 14-inch cabinets, particularly in mobile use, impress with their outstanding stability and shock resistance.
The new models have capacitive 14 inch (35.6 cm) full-HD touch displays with in-cell touch technology, which allows a particularly light weight. The difference between the two variants is the processor and the SSD and memory size. The Toshiba Tecra X40-D-10R is equipped with an Intel Core i7-7500U CPU, 512GB SSD and 16GB DDR4 memory. The Toshiba Tecra X40-D-10J benefits from an Intel Core i5-7200U CPU, a 256GB SSD, and an 8GB DDR4 memory. The SSDs are particularly fast PCI Express SSD (Peripheral Component Interconnect Express Solid State Disk) models. The innovative hybrid air cooling technology also ensures very low energy consumption and maximum performance. This allows the user to work for up to 11 hours without having to rely on an external power supply. The new notebooks work with Windows 10 Pro.
Both Toshiba Tecra X40-D models are equipped with many convenient interfaces. This includes two USB Type-C Thunderbolt 3 enabled connectors, a USB 3.0 port, an HDMI port, and a MicroSD slot. They also have an integrated SmartCard Reader. The notebooks can be connected to the Toshiba Thunderbolt 3 Dock for even more ease of use and connectivity.
For professional presentations with integrated videos, Toshiba integrates high-quality Harman/Kardon stereo speakers and DTS Sound software into the new notebooks. They deliver superior sound quality. The backlit keypad allows comfortable typing, even in low light conditions, when the light is dimmed during the presentation.
