Reviews for the Toshiba Tecra R10-10S

76% Toshiba Tecra R10 business laptop review Review
Source: Laptop Logic English
At a price tickling the $1500 mark, the Tecra R10 is a bit more spendy than a close competitor like the Lenovo ThinkPad T400. It packs business class looks and comes loaded with almost everything you might need. While it may not be a lean and mean 12 or 13.3 inch form factor, the R10 is a very competitive with its 4.3 lb, 14.1 inch frame. Is it a bit more expensive than others hitting the mark? Yes - but I feel it's a very good contendor to the Sony's and Macbooks out there to carry a good brand following from Toshiba. It plays fairly well on the road, has business casual looks, and performs like an rockstar at the superbowl halftime show. I'm not sold on the harddrive space, and it could do justice for a slightly better resolution to match it's dedicated GPU. I suppose just make sure to keep a spare battery or power outlet nearby and I'd be safe to guess you'll stay productive - and if you planned on purchasing this unit for playing DVD' better tell your boss that before complaining to me about it.

60% Review: Toshiba Tecra R10

Toshiba's Tecra R10 is a mainstream business laptop offering a comprehensive set of features plus a decent sized display, all while keeping the weight down to a reasonable level. Toshiba's Tecra R10 is a solid business laptop with plenty of performance and all the features a mobile user might need. While the high-end model covered here has 4GB RAM and a Flash hard disk, this specification is a steep price hike over the £899 of the entry-level model. Battery life is also short for working away from mains power for any time.

Slim and light, Toshiba Tecra R10-10S presents perfect balance between performances, comfort and weight. As expected, all this doesn’t come cheap, but price matches quality and capabilities of Toshiba Tecra R10-10S and as result we have one of the best “balanced” business notebooks on the market at the moment.

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.

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

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.

SP9300: Power efficient Core 2 Duo CPU with full 6 MB level 2 cache and all Penryn features (like VT-x). » 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 kg: These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 12 inch displays are normal for 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. Toshiba is one of the biggest international notebook-manufacturer. There exist many reviews for Toshiba models.
