Review Toshiba Tecra R850-11P Notebook

 

Communicative. In its press release about the Tecra R850-11P, Toshiba paints its latest creation for the business sector as a paragon of mobility and high-performance. The Japanese manufacturer is setting the bar pretty high for itself; we put the...

Separate number pad, Matt display, Good connectivity, Solid battery life, Stays cool, Stays quiet, The matt screen, the comprehensive range of communications features and the solid battery performance make this notebook a good office companion

Poor display brightness and contrast, Poor viewing angles, Combined port for headphones and mic, Separate audio ports for headphones and a microphone would be more appropriate. Also a better quality screen (brightness and contrast)

Toshiba Tecra R850 (S8540) Review

 

Like the smaller Tecra R840 , the 15-inch Toshiba Tecra R850 is a stylish business notebook. It has a slim, yet sturdy, chassis and offers strong performance and very good endurance. However, the speakers don't impress, and $1,349 is a little on the...

Sleek, durable design, Fast Core i7 performance, Strong security tools, Long battery life

So-so audio quality, Grainy webcam video

Toshiba Tecra R850-S8540

 

The panel is intensely bright and matte to reduce glare. You can find similar anti-glare panels in the Dell E6420, Lenovo T410, and HP 8560p. Its 1,366-by768 resolution, however, isn't as high as the 1,600-by-900 display on the HP 8560p and Dell E6420....

Lightest 15-inch business laptop. Excellent keyboard. Fast Core i7 processor. Big battery yielded very good battery scores. A plethora of current connectivity technologies

AMD graphics doesn't offer that big of a lift in graphics power. Pointing stick feels like sandpaper. Higher resolution would be nice

The Toshiba Tecra R850-S8540 is the lightest 15-inch business laptop and delivers competently in all areas.

Toshiba Tecra R850-S8530

 

With its latest Tecra introduction, Toshiba set out to make its business line of laptops thinner, lighter, and longer-lasting—without sacrificing durability. And, indeed, the Toshiba Tecra R850-S8530 is thin and light for a 15.6-inch desktop...

Stylish, thin, durable case ; Relatively lightweight ; Strong performance ; Decent graphics ; Long battery life ; Three-year warranty

Dull display ; Subpar keyboard ; Low-resolution Webcam

With its updated design, strong performance, and long battery life, this 15.6-inch notebook makes for a good office mate. Just take a close look at the display and keyboard before buying.

Toshiba Tecra R850

 

Great CPU power and gaming experience, good battery life for a 15.6" laptop and looks slim and attractive (this ain't your grandma's Tecra!)., Pro: Great CPU power and gaming experience, good battery life for a 15.6” laptop and looks modern

Keyboard lacks travel, no direct HDMI port., Con: Keyboard lacks travel, no direct HDMI port

If you are looking for a 15.6” notebook that’s very responsive for most tasks and good at gaming, the Toshiba Tecra R850-S8540 stands out with its fast CPU and strong GPU performance. As more and more notebooks come out with Intel’s Sandy Bridge...

Toshiba Tecra R850 (PT520A-01S003) business laptop

 

Toshiba Tecra R850 review: A thin and light 15.6in business laptop with great battery life

Elegant design ; Thin and light for a 15.6in laptop ; Great battery life

Lots of pre-loaded software ; Poor screen ; Long set up time

The Toshiba Tecra R850 is thin, reasonably light and elegant. Considering it's a 15.6in business laptop that's no mean feat. It performed well in our performance and battery tests, it has good features and it's comfortable to use. But it's also...

Toshiba Tecra R850-10R review

 

The Toshiba Tecra R850-10R is a business laptop with 15.6in widescreen display.

Toshiba's Tecra R850-10R is arguably just a bit too big for someone who needs to take their laptop with them everywhere, but it’s well-suited as a desktop replacement that can still be mobile. Build quality isn't as robust as some others in this...
