Review Toshiba Tecra R840-11E Notebook

 

Worker in black. Toshiba enlarges its business notebook family wi

Anti-glare display; Good connectivity; Stays cool; Low system noise; Touchpad can be disabled; Basic business design

Small opening angle; Poor viewing angle stability; Poor results in color gamut comparison; Poor display brightness and contrast

The quiet fan that first gets clearly audible in the stress test.

Toshiba Tecra R840 (S8430)

 

With its slim profile and long battery life, the Toshiba Tecra R840 is a compelling, travel-friendly business notebook.

Among all of the available 14-inch business notebooks, the Toshiba Tecra R840 is one of the sleekest money can buy. It has a slim and smart-looking design, a bright display, and good performance for the price. Just don't expect great sound. While the...

Toshiba Tecra R840-12F review

 

Toshiba's Tecra line-up is filled no-nonsense business laptops that are superbly capable performers. The R840 is no exception, squeezing a Core i7 processor and optical drive into a compact 14in chassis.

A fantastic business machine that doesn’t sacrifice performance or functionality for portability or battery life

Toshiba Tecra R840 review

 

The 14-inch Toshiba Tecra R840-11E is a good option if you need a laptop for work purposes. It has a great keyboard, plenty of grunt, and it's small and light enough to comfortably carry around.

Clean and classy design ; Fast performance ; Great keyboard ; Good battery life

An HDMI port would be more useful than the DisplayPort ; Expensive

If you need a laptop for work purposes, the Toshiba Tecra R840-11E is well worth considering. It has plenty of muscle under the bonnet, its keyboard is excellent, and its battery life and design are also decent.

Toshiba Tecra R840 review

 

Toshiba is a trusted name when it comes to business laptops, and it's not hard to see why. Its range has machines to suit every need, from ludicrous gaming rigs to thin, light and ground-breaking ultra-portables. The Tecra R840 we're looking is closer...

Compact, good security, powerful, great keyboard, high-end CPU and plenty of RAM

Battery life could be better, feels a little flimsy in places, quite expensive

The Tecra R840-12F is a fantastic PC that matches good business features with a high-end processor, Windows 7 Professional and excellent security options. It's let down only by the high price and somewhat uninspiring design.

Toshiba Tecra R840

 

Tecra. It's Toshiba for "business", and we somewhat like this one.

Toshiba includes both the 64- and 32-bit versions of Windows 7 Home Premium ; Great battery life ; Fantastic warranty ; Good performance for the cost

Bundled with the usual crapware that will require a good uninstall session

I don't need another laptop just now, thank you, but I *am* hungry now.

Battery drains spontaneously

 

If you want a laptop that cannot be disconnected for any length of time from the power cord, this is the computer for you. If you want a portable laptop, look elsewhere

Thin, light

Since obtaining it, the battery is draining by 1% per hour when not in use. Unfortunately, a replacement battery is not available from Toshiba, even though it is a brand new model

Good Business Machine

 

Ordered next day delivery. Newegg does not disappoint.

Slim, professional look. Long battery life (ran 7 hrs on first charge). Quiet. Fast boot. Stays cool on my lap. Decent graphics. Fast

Bloatware with no convenient way to clean it off (NetZero, Ama(that big online retailer whose name must not be mentioned in a Newegg review)zon shopping, Norton Internet Security, etc.). Arrived with the Accupoint button missing and Toshiba phone...

Great Business Laptop

 

Toshiba's Tecra R840 is a great business laptop. The quality, design and particularly the performance lives up to what I expected from Toshiba. I have purchased Tecra's in the past and have been happy with them. However, I love the new design of their...
