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.

73% Toshiba Tecra R10-112 review
Source: CNet English
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.

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's...you better tell your boss that before complaining to me about it.

Source: vnunet.com English
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.

Toshiba - Tecra R10 review
Source: IT Reviews English
 

Toshiba's Tecra R10 series of laptops comprises several variants. All are small format devices designed for portability. Prices range from £899 (plus VAT) right up to £1,549 (plus VAT), depending on the specifications you choose. At the higher price you get the fastest processor choices and a 128MB solid state hard drive (SSD), while physical hard drive options run to 160GB and 200GB. The Tecra R10 is a serviceable enough notebook, but it lacks the panache that some of its competitors offer. If you are desperate for solid state storage and built-in mobile broadband, it will cost a pretty penny.

Toshiba reviews


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

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

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.

» 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). 

SP9400: Low power 2.4 GHz Core 2 Duo with the full 6MB level 2 cache and therefore a very good performance per MHz.


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.

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.

1.9 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.

2 kg:


74.56%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
