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


In the Tecra A11, Toshiba has created a very capable and affordable system for small business users. For $879, you get a fairly powerful processor, useful productivity features (such as the ability to create a hotspot on the fly), and budget-minded...

Long warranty, Good business and security features, Strong performance

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...

Notebook Review: Toshiba Tecra A11


We put the A11-S3540 through our regular battery of benchmarks, both in Windows XP (as it came shipped to us) and in Windows 7 Professional 64-bit, noting no significant differences between the two environments beyond the fact that PCMark Vantage...

Toshiba - Tecra A11


Let's get one thing out of the way right at the start. If you want a laptop that will make your friends coo with envy when they see it, the Toshiba Tecra A11 isn't it. There's ...

The Toshiba Tecra A11 won't come out top of the class in a charm school, but it does a decent job and the internal specifications are perfectly acceptable. BEST POINT: Decent spec; fingerprint sensor for the security-conscious. WORST POINT: Chunky...
