Average laptop for simple usage
Display and Design
The Toshiba Satellite Pro B40-A X0010 poses a 13.3 inch HD Transmissive LED backlit display with a native resolution of 1366x768 pixels, also known as WXGA. It is wrapped in a 32.5mm thick body which carries a weight of 2kg and can poses problems if you need to carry it over a long distance. Only a standard touchpad and keyboard have been spotted as input options.
CPU and OS
Under the hood, the notebook comes with a 3rd generation Intel Core i5 3230M processor galloping at a clock speed of 2.6GHz and built on HM76 Express chipset. However, it disappoints in terms of its DDR3 RAM which has a meagre capacity of 2GB. To run high resolution videos and movies without much lags, the notebook houses an Intel HD 4000 GPU. The device runs DOS out of the box.
Camera, Storage and Multimedia
The Toshiba Satellite Pro B40-A X0010 is equipped with a HD webcam and provides the required space for storing apps and media files through the 500GB SATA hard disk. A powerful 8X SuperMulti DVD supporting dual layers lets you burn info on disks and run them without any kind of hassle. The stereo speakers are built on Toshiba Audio Enhancement technology.
Battery and Connectivity
The Toshiba Satellite Pro B40-A X0010 is packed with a 6 cell Li-ion battery which stores sufficient power to run the laptop proficiently for a fair period of time. On the connectivity front, it has features like WLAN, Ethernet, 2 USB 3.0 slots, 1 USB 2.0 port, Bluetooth v4.0, HDMI out and digital media reader.
Except for a powerful processor and an equally stunning DVD Drive, the Toshiba Satellite Pro B40-A X0010 has not much to boast of. Its average RAM makes it incapable of handling high end multitasking. Neither does it have the GPU to run powerful games efficiently. You can find a laptop with better features in the same price range.
