CPU and Platform

Camera, Storage and Multimedia
The Toshiba Satellite C40-B I0016 is armed with a simple webcam and inbuilt microphone and takes care of the storage needs of the user with a 500GB SATA hard disk. It also packs an 8X SuperMulti DVD Drive enabling you to stream media from disks.
The 1GB AMD Radeon R5 M230 graphics processor gives you the provision to run moderately demanding games and movies. To create the ideal ambience for gaming, it depends on stereo speakers powered by Toshiba Audio Enhancement.

The Toshiba Satellite C40-B I0016 packs a 4 cell Li-ion battery which is rated to deliver uninterrupted service for up to 5 hours. Connectivity options include digital media reader, WLAN, Ethernet port, Bluetooth v4.0, HDMI out, two USB 2.0 slots and one USB 3.0 slot.
The Toshiba Satellite C40-B I0016 is a cost effective gadget designed for all kinds of purposes, be it gaming or business, albeit the standard ones only. The main reason for its affordability is the lack of user friendly OS. Its sound battery backup is another notable feature.
