With its latest Tecra introduction, Toshiba set out to make its business line of laptops thinner, lighter, and longer-lasting—without sacrificing durability. With its updated design, strong performance, and long battery life, this 15.6-inch notebook makes for a good office mate. Just take a close look at the display and keyboard before buying.

Despite our quibbles with the set up time, pre-installed software and the poor screen, the Tecra R850 is a great business notebook. It has a top-notch hardware design that looks good, feels good to use and, perhaps most importantly, feels strongly built. Its battery life is also very good for a 15.6in notebook.
