Reviews for the Toshiba Tecra R10-112

73% Toshiba Tecra R10-112 review

Toshiba describes the 14-inch, sub-2kg Tecra R10 series as having a 'sleek design, extensive features and lightweight portability'. There are three models available, our review sample being the entry-level £1,030 R10-112. The mid-range R10-11B with a faster CPU and bigger hard disk costs £1,210, while the top-end R10-114 (with a solid-state drive and integrated mobile broadband) costs around £1,720. The Toshiba Tecra R10-112 is attractive and offers decent performance, although it's not brilliantly equipped to handle graphically demanding tasks. The keyboard flexes too much for our liking and the battery life is average, but the screen is very good quality. Overall, it's a good laptop

The race to secure the corporate dollar is reflected in the number and quality of business notebooks that have appeared over the past several months: the A-Listed Sony VAIO VGN-SR19XN has been joined by the Lenovo ThinkPad T500 and, more recently, the Dell Latitude E6400. Toshiba's latest, the Tecra R10-112, has a list of credentials that immediately places it in this esteemed company: Windows Vista Business, Toshiba's EasyGuard security software, draft-n wireless and a generous three-year warranty. There are also dozens of proprietary utilities - including password management, data backup and shock protection tools - that should, in theory, make the Tecra both easier to use and more secure. Plenty of business features and reasonable power, but the Tecra is let down by poor design.

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.

» 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.


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.
