Reviews for the Toshiba Tecra R840-S8430

70% Toshiba Tecra R840 (S8430) Review
Source: Laptop Mag English
Among all of the available 14-inch business notebooks, the Toshiba Tecra R840 is one of the sleekest money can buy. It has a slim and smart-looking design, a bright display, and good performance for the price. Just don't expect great sound. While the raw performance numbers of our $1,279 configuration fell below the Dell Latitude E6420 ($1,361) and the Fujitsu S751 ($1,079), road warriors will appreciate the lighter weight, thinner profile, and longer endurance of the R840.

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.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


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.
