Toshiba's Aims New Tecra M11 Laptop at Spunky Business Professionals

Toshiba today announced its Tecra M11 series, a new 14-inch notebook line that takes aim at business users but with a little pizazz. Sporting a sleek, textured finish on the outside and an Intel Core i3/i5 foundation on the inside, there's plenty of power here to tear through those productivity apps, and then some.

"Mobile professionals cannot sacrifice productivity on the road, needing all the conveniences of the office no matter where they are," said Carl Pinto, vice president of product development, Toshiba America, Digital Products Division. "The Tecra M11 Series represents our ability to provide the latest mobile technologies, smart features, and comprehensive security in a highly portable and affordable package. These laptops are built with our renowned quality and enhanced durability and we back the laptop with a generous three-year limited warranty to assure businesses can buy with confidence."



More than just lip service, portability comes in the form of a chassis measuring less than 1.5 inches thick and weighing just over 5 pounds. A baseline configuration starts at a little under $900 and includes an Intel Core i3 330M processor, 2GB of DDR3-1066 Memory, a 320GB hard drive, integrated Intel HD graphics, DVD burner, 2 USB ports, 1 eSATA/USB combo port, memory card reader, and Windows 7 Professional 64-bit. Other options are available, such as a Core i5 520M processor, additional RAM, and Nvidia NVS 2100M graphics.

Maybe I am missing something, but the specs seem pretty comparable to the 14" scree-sized notebooks that Dell puts out. This Toshiba one just has Core i3 over the Dell ones that sport the Core 2 Duo. I think that either processor are fine more most business settings. Other than that, this Toshiba one costs a lot more than the Dell notebooks.

Yea the price does seem a little bit steep for having so so graphics and only 2 USB ports, most business professionals should need at least 4 I would think, although it does sport the Core i3 upper 800ish far a baseline model seems high.

la_guy_10, the M11x was available for $800 maxed out specs when it first came out. Dell releases deals pretty often so you may be able to snatch one on the cheap.

I'm waiting for a second generation iteration of this computer. Nvidia Optimus, and a slightly stronger CPU will put this laptop over the top for me!

Wow, This is a pretty slick looking workbook!

My laptop is a 14"er and that seems like a good size for when you are on the go, or at the Bookstore. This on has some really good performance specs. It is probably going to give the Thinkpad a run for its money!

I have the Intel graphics, and I must say that it is really good! Weather for gaming or even 3D graphics. I was very surprised at how good the Intel GPU is at handling DCC programs like 3D Max. Mine is five years old, so I am sure the processors have been improved upon since then. Plus with that much memory, it will make that side of it much more stable.
