60% Toshiba Tecra R940 review
Source: Techradar English
The Toshiba Tecra R940-1CW is packed with business features, and if you just can't do without them, it's a reasonable choice. But ask yourself if you really need fingerprint security, Intel vPro features and a trackpoint. For many business users, usability, speed and battery life are the most important things, and for this amount of money, a high-end Ultrabook - such as the Asus Zenbook Prime - is perhaps a better choice.

70% Toshiba Tecra R940-1JG review - 14in business laptop ticks some boxes
Source: PC Advisor English
We’ve seen 14in laptops that weigh around 1.8kg, so the Tecra R940 isn’t the most portable laptop in this category. However, it does provide some of the power and features you need for a desktop replacement machine, while still offering usable battery life for those occasions when you need to leave the office.

Toshiba reviews


Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

Intel HD Graphics 4000: Processor graphics card in the high end Ivy Bridge models. Offers a different clock speed in the different CPU models (ULV to desktop quad core) and therefore a different performance.

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


Intel Core i5:

3320M: Fast Ivy-Bridge-based dual-core, includes HD 4000 Graphics, core clock 2.6 - 3.3 GHz

3230M: Fast Ivy-Bridge-based dual-core, includes HD 4000 GPU, core clock 2.6 - 3.2 GHz

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.  

3540M: Fastest Ivy-Bridge-based Dual-Core, 3.0 - 3,7 GHz core clock


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.


2 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:


70.33%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
