The four new Tecra A50-C SKUs come with Broadwell CPUs starting at 1060 Euros.

Announced in early November, the Tecra series is Toshiba's mainstream business-class solution and alternative to the more popular models from Dell, HP, or Lenovo. These models are only now becoming available in parts of Europe:

Depending on the SKU, the 15.6-inch Tecra A50-C can be equipped with either a HD or FHD IPS display and up to 8 hours of battery life. Intel Broadwell processors come standard with no Skylake options as of this writing. The notebooks also come in Silver with spill-resistant keyboards.

Our review of the recent Tecra A50-C1510W10 shows it to be a decent business notebook for the cost, though there are certainly better solutions for the price. The lower-end SKUs should be avoided as they lack many of the core business features that define the category.

Users will find that the higher-end Portege notebooks provide significantly better quality than the Tecra series. Toshiba may soon spin-off its notebook division to recoup losses in the slow-growing sector.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
