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.

Worker in black. Toshiba enlarges its business notebook family with the Tecra R840-11E that promises high mobility and high performance. The Tecra R840-11E, with an i5-2520M CPU, incorporated HD 3000 graphics and a conventional 320 GB HDD is to cost steep 1349 euros. We comprehensively checked how the laptop fares in the test.

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 Tecra R840 notebook review

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.

Apart from the slightly larger screen, there’s very little to differentiate the Tecra R840 from the 13in competition. Thankfully, it excels in many other areas, including performance, battery life and connectivity. If you don’t mind carrying a little extra weight, it’s the ideal business laptop for the frequent traveller that can’t do without essentials such as an optical drive and desktop-level performance.

Toshiba's laptops tend to be designed for business users, but they are still suitable for home users. The Tecra R840 is at the top end of the company's business range. Several versions of the Toshiba Tecra R840 are available, but the R840-12F one we looked at is good value for people who want a serious computer that's powerful but portable.

Overall, we think the Toshiba is an incredible piece of equipment. It seems to have been built with care and has been designed with business customers in mind. Its power means it can be used as a desktop replacement (there's a docking station, should you require one) but it remains portable enough to carry around on trips. Really, we can't think of anything significant (except the price) that would put a potential buyer off. But of course, in these economic times the price is a huge part of any buying decision.

Toshiba reviews


Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

AMD Radeon HD 6450M: Seymore-PRO based entry level graphics card with Eyefinity+ support and clocked somewhere betwen 480 and 800MHz.

Intel HD Graphics 3000: Integrated graphics card in the Intel Sandy Bridge processors (Core ix-2xxx). The HD 3000 is the faster (internally GT2 called) version with 12 Execution Units (EUs).

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Core i5:

2520M: Dual-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. 

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  

2620M: Very fast Dual-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. 


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.

2.2 kg:

These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 13 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.


79.5%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
