Reviews for the Toshiba Tecra M7

Toshiba's Tecra Notebooks Just Keep Rollin' Along
Source: Mobility Guru English
With very similar components, the Toshiba Tecra A8 and M7 perform quite similarly. The M7's slightly higher battery capacity accounts for slight battery life differences between the two in MobileMark05 tests. Based on our test results, the Tecra M7 Tablet PC has a better display by far than the A8. The Tablet PC is fairly easy to use in either tablet or laptop configuration, and switching between the two is very simple. The A8 and M7 live up to the Tecra name from a construction point of view, both featuring good quality and sturdiness. The Tecra M7 is more expensive than the A8, but when you consider the additional functionality and display quality of the M7, it may well be worth spending extra dollars on Toshiba's M7 Tablet PC.

Toshiba M7 Tablet PC User Review

Overall, while the Toshiba M7 has its share of positives and negatives, I think it is one of the top Tablets on the market today. It balances both unbelievable power with great Tablet PC functionality, as well as a design that owes itself to new users as well as tweak-obsessed power fans. In the end, while you may sometimes get frustrated with the laptop’s slight quality shortcomings, you will never regret purchasing such a strong and durable Tablet for any use.

With its latest laptop, Toshiba is trying to generate a brand-new market sector that we're surprised no-one else has thought of yet: the widescreen convertible tablet. The M7 boasts a 14.1in screen with a resolution of 1,440 x 900 pixels, making it the first widescreen tablet available. Despite being the M7's unique selling point, the screen itself is a disappointment. Tablet displays inevitably suffer both from the extra stylus-sensing layer and the need to be usable in portrait and landscape modes, but the M7's display is a letdown bearing even that in mind. A capable machine for a very good price, but the screen leaves much to be desired.

First of all, I have to come out and say that I have never owned a Tablet PC, until I purchased my Tecra M7. And second, let me say that I may never go back to a conventional notebook again! The Tecra M7 from Toshiba is not only a powerful notebook computer, but also, by rotating the screen it becomes a Tablet PC, making tasks such as note taking and graphics editing a breeze. This computer is a great machine for just about anyone. It is powerful, easy to use, and priced to compete with the other computers out there. I highly recommend it.

NVIDIA Quadro NVS 110M: It is based on the GeForce Go 7300 with professional certified graphics drivers for applications like CAD, Rendering, 3D modelling, etc.

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

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


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)


T2500: » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


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.


2.8 kg: This weight is average for notebooks. Therefore the numerous mass of laptops with 15 inch display fits in this class of weight.


Toshiba: Toshiba Corporation is a multinational conglomerate manufacturing company, headquartered in Japan. The company's main business is in Infrastructure, Consumer Products, and Electronic devices and components. Toshiba-made Semiconductors are among the Worldwide Top 20 Semiconductor Sales Leaders.
