Reviews for the Toshiba Tecra S3

60% Graphics muscle meets enterprise-grade security
Source: Laptop Mag English
Don’t let its Nvidia graphics processor fool you; the Toshiba Tecra S3 is designed for business users, thanks to features like a TPM security chip and a fingerprint reader. This black-and-silver notebook has a very manageable 6.3-pound weight, but the Tecra S3’s 13.5 x 11.3-inch footprint is too unwieldy for road warriors. It runs for over three hours on battery power, which is nice, and that time doesn’t drop at all when the Wi-Fi adapter is turned on. The Wi-Fi performance was rather good, too. The Tecra S3’s 12.6-Mbps performance at 5 feet from our access point is nothing to write home about, but its 10-Mbps data transfer rate from 50 feet is very impressive and more indicative of real-world conditions.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce Go 6600: NVIDIA GeForce Go 6600 is the mobile medium class of the GeForce Go 6000 series for notebooks. Its performance is good with normal current consumption (in 2006). Older games like Doom3 run fluently.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.
