Toshiba Tecra 9100 (Pentium 4-M 1.7 GHz review


Toshiba has added the new 2GHz version of the mobile Pentium 4-M to its thin-and-light Tecra 9100 notebook. Besides the new chip, this solid business notebook hasn't changed much from its predecessor, except that it's even more expensive. Additionally,...

Fast; great looks; built-in wireless; versatile media bay.

Pricey; quirky keyboard layout.

The Tecra 9100 offers fast performance and cutting-edge features for business users, despite a high price and a quirky keyboard.
