Reviews for the Toshiba Tecra R840-S8430
Source: Laptop Mag
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.
