The Toshiba Tecra A11 is intended as a desktop substitute for business users, and is designed with an emphasis on performance and features rather than portability. The Tecra A11 offers business users a decent level of performance in a laptop with almost nothing left out, and an excellent keyboard and display. However, the short battery life means that it is best regarded as a desktop replacement to be carried between sites rather than used while travelling.

Its size, weight and average battery life mean the Tecra A11 is not ideal for frequent use on the move and the absence of vPro for remote management may limit its interest to larger enterprises. Its low resolution screen is also a potentially limiting factor. Those caveats aside, however, the A11 is a speedy and very useable machine that offers good value – though there are rivals from HP and Sony that will do similar with more panache.

Toshiba may hit the headlines with its multi-touch enabled laptop, but as far as business customers are concerned its new Tecra models will be of rather more interest. Overall, we found ourselves pretty impressed with the Toshiba Tecra A11 and we look forward to getting hold of a review sample to see if we still feel the same way or if there are any significant flaws.

NVIDIA NVS 2100M:

Business graphics card that should be based on the GT218 core (e.g. GeForce 210M) but with drivers that are optimized for stability and compatibility in business applications). Compared to the NVS 3100, the 2100 features a lower clock speed.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

520M:

The Core i5-520M has only 3 MB L3 Cache (compared to the I7-640M) and clocks between 2.4-2.93 GHz (Turbo Mode). Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (GMA HD 3150) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.

15.6": 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. However nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.6 kg: This notebook is lighter than the average of all notebooks. It is too heavy for sub-notebooks. 14 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
