Reviews for the Toshiba Tecra A50-A-12Z

83% Review Toshiba Tecra A50-A-12Z Notebook | Notebookcheck
Buzzing companion. Until now, processors from the Haswell generation were only rarely found in 15-inch business laptops. Toshiba rocks the market with its Tecra A50 - and wants to eliminate the precursor's problems at the same time.
