Reviews for the Toshiba Tecra R10-S4401
Source: PC Mag
Business professionals will agree that having ample screen real estate is vital to their productivity, but those who frequently take their laptops on the road often settle for smaller screens because portability is critical. To its credit, the Toshiba Tecra R10-S4401 ($1,549 direct) is one of the few lightweights that can pull off a 14-inch widescreen on a 4.2-pound frame and still give you features like a built-in optical drive and speedy parts. Unfortunately, it missed the mark in other areas, such as battery life. The Tecra R10-S4401 is one of the lightest laptops to house a 14-inch widescreen, but Toshiba had to sacrifice battery life to get there.

The Toshiba Tecra R10 is the best looking, best performing Tecra notebook we've seen in years. The Tecra line of notebooks often lacked the polish of the rest of Toshiba's laptops, but thanks to some design elements from the Toshiba Portege line, the new Tecra notebooks look as good as they perform. Still, the attractive R10 is not without its flaws. Designers seemingly had some trouble figuring out where to put things in this notebook since the ExpressCard slot, fingerprint reader, and quick launch keys all should have been located elsewhere. The touchpad buttons work great, but the shallow press of the buttons makes them somewhat painful to use over the course of a full work day. Still, the main issue that may keep some people from buying the Tecra R10 is the price. While the price of the R10 isn't completely out of line, similar configurations from other companies cost several hundred dollars less. Bottom line, the Toshiba Tecra R10 is a great business notebook for road warriors who want a full featured notebook with sleek looks ... but it would be even better if it was a few hundred dollars less expensive.

The Toshiba Tecra R10 has a bit more style than other basic business laptops and plenty of substance. It isn’t a budget entry, but its price is competitive for its class.

Priced at $1,549, the Toshiba Tecra R10-S4401 is one of the better business notebooks we’ve tested, and although we prefer the design and display of the Samsung X460-44P, the Toshiba costs $150 less. Business users who want to travel light without sacrificing performance or battery life will find the R10-S4401 a compelling option.

NVIDIA Quadro NVS 150M: Based on the GeForce 9200M GS but optimized for the stable business use (special drivers and bios). Supports PureVideo HD to help the CPU decode HD videos. Compared to the NVS 160M, the 150M is slower clocked and supports only smaller resolutions (1680x1050 or 1600x1200). Memory speed: 400 MHz GDDR2, 700 MHz GDDR3
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.
This display size represents a treshold between the small sizes of subnotebooks and ultrabooks and the standard-sizes of office- and multimedia laptops on the other hand. Laptops with that size are somewhat rare, nowadays.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal.
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.
