SINGAPORE - Toshiba announced announced its new high-performance TECRA R840 business notebooks. Powered by the visibly smart 2nd Generation Intel Core processors, the new TECRA R840 redefines mobility for business professionals offering full performance and amazing connectivity, all within a thin, light and durable chassis, and has the features every business needs and wants.
Featuring a14-inch diagonal HD LED-Backlit widescreen display, the TECRA R840 is the ideal all-around mobile business laptop. At about 25 percent thinner and 20 percent lighter than its predecessor, the TECRA M11, the TECRA R840 is the thinnest 14-inch TECRA laptop ever made.
The performance packed laptop is also equipped with the 2nd generation Intel Core i3, i5 and i7 processors and high-speed 7200 RPM hard drives, delivering the maximum performance when you need it the most. Visual experience is further enhanced with the AMD Radeon discrete graphics with 1GB of dedicated graphics which is powerful enough to let you display up to four screens at once.
The thin and lightweight design doesn’t compromise on durability. The TECRA R840 notebooks are built using a unique High Stiffness Resin reinforced casing together with chassis pillars embedded into the laptop’s interior, making the system highly robust against flexing and thereby considerably prolonging the products’ lifetimes.
During extensive HALT testing conducted by the independent German test institute TÜV Rheinland, the TECRA R840 series could prove their high durability: They were able to withstand drops from a 76cm height, sustained a load of 100kg on the LCD lid, and were resistant against spills up to a volume of 30ml on the keyboard without impact on the data stored on the device.
Equipped with Toshiba's EasyGuard Technology to help protect against accidental spills and bumps, the laptops are also designed with a suite of security features, including multiple level passwords and a fingerprint reader to help thwart unwanted access, and an optional Trusted Platform Module to offer high-level data encryption.
The new TECRA R840 notebooks also boast a stylish, textured Line Pattern finish in Graphite Black and a premium raised tile keyboard that is spill resistant with a large TouchPad or Accupoint pointing devices.
The TECRA R840 notebooks easily connect to the world with a broad range of standard ports including high-speed USB 3.0 port, eSATA/USB Combo with Toshiba's USB Sleep & Charge technology, DisplayPort or HDMI, Bluetooth 3.0+EDR, ExpressCard and Gigabit Ethernet. Connectivity can even be expanded through the optional docking station with additional ports and interfaces such as USB (two USB 3.0, four USB 2.0), DisplayPort or HDMI, VGA, Serial Port and Gigabit LAN support.
To enhance customer usability and enable quicker boot up time on the notebook, the new TECRA R840 series comes integrate with Toshiba's new and unique "Panel Open - Power On" feature, which allows users to boot up the laptop simply by lifting up the display panel when it is shut down or in sleep or hibernate mode.
