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

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...

Toshiba Tecra A11 review

 

This laptop offers plenty of power and some other highlights, with only a couple of complaints

Good performance ; Battery life ; Usability ; Good screen

Cheap appearance ; Small hard drive

Expert review by:

Toshiba Tecra A11 review

 

The Toshiba Tecra A11 is a decent business laptop, but it lacks the features and design flair to make it really stand out in a crowded market.

Good build quality ; Fast processor ; Good battery life

Keyboard lacks numerical keypad ; Boxy design ; Only 2GB of RAM

Overall, the Toshiba Tecra A11 is a competent business laptop that offers good performance, a decent screen and an impressive range of ports. In saying that, the computer's chunky design and limited amount of RAM are a tad disappointing

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...
