Review Toshiba Tecra A11-125 Notebook


Reliable Business. The Tecra notebook, designed and produced by T

Very good keyboard; Surface temperature stays very low; Toshiba Software (especially the TosReelTime)

Moderate battery life; Pre-installed bloatware; Old-fashioned design

The HP ProBook 5310M, the to-be-released Dell Vostro laptops and the Lenovos Thinkpad SL510.

Toshiba Tecra A11-S3540


While this Core i7 business notebook has plenty of power and business-friendly features, it doesn't last long on a charge.

In the Tecra A11, Toshiba has created a very capable and affordable system for business users. For $1,349, you get a powerful processor, Nvidia graphics, and a high-resolution screen—but atrocious battery life. However, this laptop is loaded with...

Toshiba Tecra A11 Review - A Review of the Toshiba Tecra A11


Long warranty, Good business and security features, Strong performance

Limited viewing angles, Tinny speakers, Not the best bargain

The large chassis of the A11 kept the system relatively cool while streaming a Hulu video at full screen. After 15 minutes, the touchpad was 90 degrees Fahrenheit, the space between the G and H keys reached 95 degrees, and the middle of the underside...

Toshiba Tecra A11-S3540 Review


Toshiba's Tecra Series of laptops have traditionally been marketed as high-performance business laptops, designed to be capable of handling demanding tasks. Earlier this year, Toshiba announced the Tecra A11. The new Tecra A11 is thinner and lighter...

Intel Core i7-620M processor ; Roomy keyboard ; Matte display ; Textured case ; Plenty of ports ; 3-year limited warranty

Lackluster battery life ; Somewhat disappointing gaming performance, though still playable

The Tecra A11 held its own in many of the benchmark tests. It also handled multimedia with ease. Even though this is a business notebook, there's no denying that Toshiba has put some powerful components underneath the hood, including an Intel Core...

Tecra a 11


I don't believe I would purchase another personally. If I was buying for my self I would not be pleased with the quality. Toshiba has been helpful with warantee and replacments, but you may go a week with out your computer while it's repaired

We have bought 7 of these laptops from various places 2 from Newegg

where to start out of the 7 we have already sent one in to have the built in bluetooth replaced as it failed. 2 units put off a high pitched whine that drives users up the wall unless you disable dynamic switching of the processor cores and one other...
