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.

60% Toshiba Tecra M11 review
Source: CNet English
Business users often aren't interested in flashy designs, instead preferring a laptop that looks and feels like it'll stand up to some abuse, while also offering good levels of performance. The configuration of the Toshiba Tecra M11 that we've reviewed, the M11-11M, boasts a fast processor and sturdy build quality, but its short battery life is disappointing and it's no oil painting.

Toshiba - Tecra M11-11M review
Source: IT Reviews English
We like the Tecra M11's no-nonsense design and it certainly feels like it could withstand a bit of rough treatment. The Core i7 processor also provides plenty of raw processing power, making it pretty darn quick. There are a few issues with it, though, most notably its lacklustre battery life. What's more, the i7 processor pushes up its price a fair whack, and better value can be had by opting for one of the cheaper Tecra M11 models such as the Core i3-driven Tecra M11-11K, which retails for around £649 + VAT.

Toshiba reviews


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

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.

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


Intel Core i3:

330M:

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.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  

620M:

The Core i7-620M is the fastest Dual-Core CPU for laptops (at the time of introduction in Q1 2010). The 620M clocks betwenn 2.66 and 3.33 GHz due to the Turbo Mode and because of Hyperthreading, 4 threads are executed simultaneously. In the package, Intel also included a second die with an integrated GPU (GMA HD) and a memory controller. Therefore, the TDP of 35 Watt of the whole package is still quite good.

Intel Core i5:

560M:

The Core i5-560M has only 3 MB L3 Cache (compared to the I7-620M) and clocks also between 2.67-3.2 GHz (Turbo Mode). Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (GMA HD) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.


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.

» 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:


73.43%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
