Toshiba releases TECRA R840 series, promises mobility without compromise


If there’s one thing that Toshiba notebooks are known for, it’s reliability. We’ve heard (and seen) Toshiba notebooks made in the 90’s that are still kicking around today, and their passion for making solid, reliable notebooks continues today. At an event in the Palladium, New World Hotel yesterday, the company unveiled their newest notebook aimed at the corporate market. The TECRA R840 series aims to deliver both performance and mobility without sacrificing the brand’s legendary reliability.

The new range of notebooks is powered by Intel’s second generation Core processors (Sandybridge), can have up to 8GB of DDR3 memory and has discrete graphics by way of ATI Radeon HD6450M (1GB of dedicated VRAM).

The R840 series is able to take a lot of abuse, thanks to extensive HALT (Highly Accelerated Life Test) testing. They were able to withstand drops from a 76cm height, sustained loads of 100KG on the LCD lid and resistant to spills up to a volume of 30ml on the keyboard without compromising the data stored on the device.

Prices will depend on configuration, it’s best to contact Tricom Dynamics at 8906525 to know more.
