The Tecra R850-11P is a worthy new member of Toshiba’s business range. We did not find any serious flaws with our review model, though it was also rather short of distinctive features. The notebook certainly has enough power to cope with office...

Like the smaller , the 15-inch Toshiba Tecra R850 is a stylish business notebook. It has a slim, yet sturdy, chassis and offers strong performance and very good endurance. However, the speakers don't impress, and $1,349 is a little on the high side....
