Toshiba Tecra Z40-C Core i5 6th Gen 8GB RAM 256GB SSD 14″ Full HD Display


Toshiba Tecra Z40-C Core i5 8GB RA256GB SSD 14″ Light Weight Ultrabook Review


The Toshiba Tecra Z40-C shows up to work hoping to impress. The dark, gunmetal-gray lid and deck are made from magnesium.

Inside, you’ll find a keyboard with black, Chiclet-style keys; a blue pointing stick; mouse buttons; and a trackpad.

The bezel around the 14-inch, 1366 x 768 display is thick and cumbersome.

Ports and Webcam

The Toshiba Tecra Z40-C has plenty of ports for peripherals, including external monitors and storage drives.

The left side of the notebook is home to a VGA port, a USB 3.0 port, an HDMI output port and an SD card slot.

The right side features the headphone and microphone jack, two more USB 3.0 ports, an Ethernet port, a security lock slot and room for the AC adapter.

A dock connector can be found on the bottom.


The bluegrass sounds of the Avett Brothers were clear on the Tecra Z40-C’s speakers, with coherent vocals and loud highs and mids.


Toshiba’s Tecra Z40-C can stand up to high-pressure situations in the office and still keep its cool. After streaming 15 minutes of HD video from Hulu, the notebook measured 87 degrees Fahrenheit on the bottom, 82 degrees between the G and H keys, and 79 degrees on the touchpad. All of these measurements were well below our 95-degree comfort threshold.
