  • Excerpt: I got given this laptop from a friend a couple of weeks ago. He had spilt whiskey and coke into the keyboard which of course had its effects. The keys are very sticky and the little bobble mouse is broken but it works no probs with an external one. running WINDOWS XP! believe it or not. the 64MB or ram had been upgraded to 256MB so it runs applications well. USB is quick and optical other drives behaqve as they should do.

  • Excerpt: These old laptops, save for their batteries, after years of usage still run strong. Though I have a newer laptop, I still possess one of this type which, even with my neice hammering away it, it is still alive and kicking. Good Old Laptops... Long lasting... Highly recommend as a laptop for the children to destroy.

A Good Laptop for Starters

tlsuess, Ciao
2 March 2006
  • Excerpt: I purchased a used Toshiba Tecra 8000 in a PC magazine about four years ago, and to this day, it continues to work great. It cost about $400, and I think it was worth it. I needed to only upgrade the battery since it wouldn't hold a charge, but other than that, the laptop works great! I installed Windows 98 on the system, and it works great for multimedia like Flash, movies (MPEG, AVI), and high quality graphics.
  • Pros: Good speed, long durability, great motherboard, compatibility with DOS, good with multimedia
  • Cons: Slow memory at times, manual installation of graphics drivers for higher resolutions

A Great Complete Notebook

davidtova..., Ciao
27 August 2000
  • Excerpt: I chose this item as a second hand notebook as I saw the prices new machiness were fetching. However I was not in the slightest bit dissappointed. It has a great bright 14.1" screen and i9s pretty light. The 128MB RAM and 6GB hard disk are ample, thus allowing the PII366 to run at full speed. Second hand it can be picked up for under £800. Well worth it! If you want a totally reliable seecond hand machine, with a good back up support team, then this a the PC to chose.
  • Pros: Value for money, Light
  • Cons: Old Model

Good solid laptop

  • Excerpt: I bought my Tecra 8000 to do computer consulting work on, so pretty much everything from using apps, games, development and web stuff. The machine has a really good, large screen, thought it doesn't go to very high resolutions without resorting to a 'virtual desktop' type arrangement which doesn't really work. The battery life is absolutely excellent, often putting in at least 3.5 hours, even 3 with constant DVD access going on.

Bon PC pour professionnels

babygreen, Ciao
20 February 2004
  • Summary: Un PC relativement dépassé a l'heure actuelle mais qui garde pour lui une qualité de fabrication digne des grandes marques HP/IBM.... La souris interne se montre robuste comme tout l'ordinateur : ecran généreux et costaud, clavier agréable au toucher et bien concu. Les differentes prises sont bien placées et permettent une bonne evolutivité au PC.
  • Pros: Tres costaud, bon écran .
  • Cons: Mémoire ram faible . Prix pieces .

Increvable :)

  • Summary: Etudiant en troisième cycle, je suis amené à beaucou bouger, que ce soit dans les entreprises ou dans les écoles. Ce portable me suis partout tel un ami fidèle. C'est vraiment génial. Ce que j'apprécie le plus c'est son adaptabilité. Il se connecte sur tous les réseaux, tous les projecteurs ... et le tout sont grogner. Question cout, il est vrai qu'il est cher. Mais la qualité est au rendez vous. C'est un peu la marque de fabrique de ces portables : cher mais efficient !
  • Pros: Incassable, connectable
  • Cons: ???

Le must

  • Summary: Je possede ce portable depuis 2 ans et j'en suis toujours aussi content. Les composants internes sont tres generiques et les plusieurs reinstallations successives de plusieurs systemes d'exploitation ne posent pas de problemes. La carte graphique semble un peu faible pour une machine de cette categorie mais elle a l'avantage d'etre reconnue sous linux ce qui permet d'utiliser X-Window.
  • Pros: robuste, fiable, puissant
  • Cons: carte graphique peu puissante

Toshiba Tecra 8100

Alain_Z, Ciao
26 June 2000
  • Summary: N'étant pas un néophyte en informatique j'ai toujours aimé suivre l'évolutions des produits dans ce secteur. Je dois dire que jusqu'à présent j'avais souvent été déçu des possibilités des orinateurs portables. Mais ça vient de changer! En effet! Je suis tombé sur un petit bijou! Le TECRA 8100 de Toshiba. Son look est très design, gris métallisé et gris enthracite. Le clavier (avec de grandes touches) est très confortable et très ergonomique.
  • Pros: les performances techniques de cette bête de course, tout à fait à la hauteur de la plupart des desktops actuels et même mieux que beaucoup .  Le look, l'ergonomie et le caractère complet de la machine .
  • Cons: le côté gadget de certaines ajoutes (caches de port), la caricature de souris du clavier, le port USB qui n'est pas vraiment au point sur certaines machines et qui est un peu fragile .
