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.
