Reviews for the Toshiba Tecra M11-104
Business Case. Toshiba introduces the Tecra M11 as a robust and compact companion for business routine. We'll check if the notebook can support the advertised claim, or if the ad writers have promised too much.
A solid laptop with plenty of business-focused features. Battery life is a concern, though, and the majority of corporate users would do best to save some money by opting for one of the versions with a slower CPU. Cheaper alternatives from rivals such as Dell are also available.

A laptop that combines superb application performance from Intel's Core i7 range with consistently excellent build quality. It's decent elsewhere, too, with a fine screen and solid ergonomics. It's only overshadowed by rival machines, which manage to pack in discrete graphics chips and more versatility for similar amounts of cash.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) HD Graphics: Onboard graphics card that is built in the new Arrandale CPUs (Core i3 / i5 / i7 Dual Cores). Depending on the model and Turbo Boost, the GMA HD is clocked between 166 and 766 MHz.
Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.
The Core i3-330M is a slower clocked 350M and therefore also lacks the Turbo Boost feature and clocks with max. 2.13 GHz. 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.
