A simply outstanding corporate laptop with power, comfort and quality. Toshiba's Tecra range is aimed at the corporate users, and the Tecra M10-10H is a 14.1-inch machine, offering a useful mix of portability and practicality. Unlike the consumer laptops here, it features standard TFT technology for the display. Where these matt-finish panels are often lacking in lustre when compared with glossy Super-TFT screens, the Toshiba's offers vivid colours. The Tecra M10-10H is an excellent corporate machine. Offering impressive performance, outstanding usability and a host of professional features, it's the ideal solution for small business use.

The M10 doesn’t offer anything innovative, and has few standout features, but as an all-round package it’s a useful, well made and powerful business machine. It’s a shame the latest features - such as 3G/HSDPA - are omitted, but if all you need is a tough, reliable and comfortable laptop, then it may be worth putting the Toshiba on your shortlist. That said, at £700, it faces stiff competition from the likes of Dell’s Latitude E-series.

Some manufacturers, like Dell, believe laptop users, even supposedly non-frivolous business folk, prefer svelte, stylish notebooks. Not so Toshiba, at least if the the Tecra M10 is anything to go by.We can't fault the Tecra M10's performance, but with a relatively feeble battery pack and a look that's more Nineties than Noughties, this notebook failed to excite. Just the sort of thing to give to staffers who might otherwise get ideas above their workstation.

The Toshiba Tecra M10-10I is attractively priced, and offers a strong range of security and data-protection features. We're not so impressed by the lack of a webcam and mobile broadband, but these can be added -- at a price. So long as you don't intend to carry this rather bulky laptop too often, its high-quality screen and excellent keyboard, plus a solid set of internal components, should make it a serviceable workhorse.

  In the end, Toshiba accomplishes what it sets out to with the Tecra M10. For $1,199, you get a well-equipped, all-business notebook, with everything a security-conscious user needs and without all the bloatware that can slow it down. The performance, while erratic from one test to the next, excels where it needs to: handling large documents, and multitasking. If you’re a small business owner who wants to take security into your own hands, put the Toshiba Tecra M10 on your short list.

Toshiba reviews


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

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 4500MHD: Onboard (shared Memory) GPU built in the GM45, GE45 and GS45 chipset (Montevina). Because of two more shaders and a higher core clock, much faster than the old GMA X3100. Still not advisable for gamers (DirectX 10 games not playable or only with very low settings). The integrated video processor is able to help decode HD videos (AVC/VC-2/MPEG2) , e.g., for a fluent Blu-Ray playback with slow CPUs.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Core 2 Duo: This is the Core Duo and Core Solo successor with a longer pipeline and 5-20% more speed without more power consumption. As an addition to the Core Duo design there exists a fourth decoder, an amplified SSE-unit and an additional arithmetical logical unit (ALU).

The Core 2 Duo for laptops is identical to the desktop Core 2 Duo processors but the notebook-processors work with lower voltages (0.95 to 1188 Volt) and a lower Frontside bus clock (1066 vs 667 MHz). The performance of equally clocked notebooks is 20-25% lower than Desktop PCs because of the lower Frontside bus clock and the slower hard disks.

P8400:

Middle class dual core CPU with a TDP of 25 Watt. For high end gamer the performance could be not sufficient (for class 1 graphic cards).

T9400:

The T9400 is a fast middle class dual core CPU for laptops and basically a Core 2 Duo P9500 with a higher TDP of 35 Watt.

P8600:

Fast but still not overpriced dual core CPU. For most games and multimedia applications sufficient and due to the 25W TDP even for smaller notebooks useable.

T6570: Entry level Penryn based dual-core CPU with a small 2MB level 2 cache and FSB800. Similar to the T6500 but featuring VT-x functions.


14.0: 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.

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.


2.4 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.

2.5 kg:


78.43%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
