Managing to cram impressive performance and a mass of excellent business features into a slim and light body, Toshiba has impressed with the Tecra R840. The design is basic and there are some slight usability issues, but if you need a portable business solution on a limited budget, you could do a lot worse.

Toshiba’s target market for the Tecra R840-11E is demanding business customers seeking a slim but sturdy notebook. All in all, not a good option if you’re looking for a home entertainment system, rather a very powerful business machine; quiet, efficient operation with plenty of security and interface ports, attractively packaged.

Toshiba's Tecra range is aimed at those seeking a laptop to use primarily for work. The 14-inch Toshiba Tecra R840-11E is a good option if you need a laptop for work purposes. It has a great keyboard, plenty of grunt, and it's small and light enough to comfortably carry around.
