For busy business professionals, a reliable laptop or notebook computer that can withstand the rigors of the business day is a must. New or small businesses must keep a watch over their budgets. The Toshiba Tecra A11 and the Toshiba Tecra M11 are laptop and notebook respectively which can fulfill both of those considerations. Both offer the convenience of a full-size keyboard high-definition LED backlit display and 10 key number pad. Both also offer the performance of the iCore family of processors from Intel, not to mention the textured case which does not show fingerprints.

Business presentations gain a stunning new clarity by using the mini DisplayPort to connect to any compatible display with an ultrahigh resolution of up to 2560 x 1600.

Eco-minded users will be glad to know the both Tecra models are EPEAT gold status in recognition of Toshiba's eco-conscious practices, materials and packaging.

These machines are built on a chassis composed of lightweight magnesium, the metal used to build the strongest racing wheels in the world. In addition to the strong and lightweight chassis, rubber tabs act as shock absorbers to protect the main components,such as the hard drive and the display. They also have a system which employs a 3-D accelerometer to detect shocks. When it does so, the head is moved from between the hard drive disks, thus preventing scratches and preserving the hard drive.

They also offer spill resistant keyboards. These work by giving you the time you need to shut the computer down before your work is lost.

Both administrators and users can safeguard their work by taking advantage of the multiple level password utilities included in the software. In addition, there is a fingerprint reader. These safeguards and more comprise part of the EasyGuard system.

Toshiba made sure that you will always have the best signal for your wireless reception by placing 2 separate WiFi antennas within the top lid of he case. Software then monitors both antennae and chooses to use the one with the strongest signal. There is also a Bluetooth antenna.

Toshiba also has a utility they call Fn-esse. It is used for assigning tasks like opening email for instance, to custom keystroke combinations.

If your business is ready for a new Toshiba laptop or notebook computer, which exhibits outstanding performance and reliability, but you don't want to break the bank, the Toshiba Tecra computers are certainly worth taking a look at.
