Reviews for the Toshiba Tecra A6

64% Toshiba Tecra A6-EZ6411
Source: CNet English
The good: Strong application performance for the money; attractive design and solid construction; roomy, comfortable keyboard; hard drive protection and spill-resistant keyboard provide peace of mind; fingerprint reader provides added security and convenience. The bad: Glossy screen coating bound to annoy business users; not configurable. The bottom line: The Toshiba Tecra A6 is a well-designed business laptop that delivers good performance for the money and a host of business-friendly security features, but its glossy display will prove to be a deal breaker for many.

With the number of notebooks now on the market it is hard to imagine that at one time, Toshiba had the game all to itself. With over 21 years of experience in portable computing it knows a thing or two about mobility. The Toshiba Tecra A6 may not be the most striking or feature rich of machines on the market but it comes in at a comfortable weight with a battery life to match. If you’re on a strict budget and battery life is a priority, you’ll be glad of the A6. If you’re looking for a fully featured notebook with plenty of staying power, this is a great machine but you won’t find little extras as standard.

70% Good looks and performance for a reasonable price.

In this crop of conservatively designed notebooks, the 5.5-pound Toshiba Tecra A6 comes the closest to sexy. The glossy silver-metallic-flake paint job would look just as at home on an Audi, and we love the 14.1-inch widescreen panel. The Tecra doesn’t have a wireless broadband option, and performance and battery life were on the low side for this group. At only $1,149 (as tested), you get a lot for your money.

80% Toshiba piles on the value in this secure, long-running business laptop.

The Tecra A6-S513 is one of Toshiba's least-expensive business notebooks. Compact and relatively light, the $1149 (as of April 18, 2006) machine weighs 5.3 pounds. It has a 14.1-inch, 1280-by-768-pixel TruBrite wide screen, and runs for 3.9 hours on one battery charge. It would make a very good commuter notebook. The handsome black-and-silver portable is adequately though not extravagantly configured, with Wi-Fi, 128MB of shared video RAM, a removable 80GB 5400-rpm hard drive, a FireWire port, a five-in-one media-card reader, four USB ports scattered about the case, and a built-in right-side combination DVD-ROM/CD-RW drive.

Toshiba Tecra A6 Review
Source: English
The Toshiba Tecra A6 is quite a beefy notebook for its very low price, though I have a few minor gripes with it. The power of the Core Duo and Mobility Radeon X1400 ensure that this laptop will make short work of whatever I throw at it. Though the battery life isn't exactly brilliant it is good enough to get through a few hours of work done while on the run. If you're looking for a sleek, great value laptop with plenty of grunt yet still retaining portability it's hard to go past the Toshiba Tecra A6.

All work and some play is the message Toshiba seems to be sending out with its Tecra A6-S513. The new laptop is aimed at those who split their time between corporate duties and leisure activities. The Tecra A6-S513 features several midrange components, including the Intel Core Solo T1300, and is priced ideally for professionals and students who want decent features for a reasonable amount of money. This system is fine for basic multitasking—such as working on Microsoft Office files while listening to music—but those who demand really high performance should look elsewhere.

ATI Mobility Radeon X1400: ATI Mobility Radeon X1400 is part of the lower middle class. The performance can be compared with an elder X600, but technically it is a X1300, which is scarcely 100 Mhz higher clocked.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

Intel Core Duo: Double Core processor with a very good relation of performance to current consumption. The 2 MB L2 Cache are used together by the double. The maximum capacity of 31 watts is only 4 watts more than with the Pentium M (predecessor). Both cores are lowered automatically and independently of each other by speed steps down to 1 GHz. In addition it now supports also SSE3 instructions. At least it is just as fast as a equivalent Pentium M. With applications, which were designed for multi-processors, the performance can be nearly twice as fast as with the Pentium M (e.g. CineBench around 86% fast)

14.1": 14 inch display size is a mixture between the small formats of subnotebooks and the 15 inch standard display. 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.

2.3 kg: These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 13 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
