Summary: Communicative. In its press release about the Tecra R850-11P, Toshiba paints its latest creation for the business sector as a paragon of mobility and high-performance. The Japanese manufacturer is setting the bar pretty high for itself; we put the notebook to the test in our review.
Pros: Separate number pad, Matt display, Good connectivity, Solid battery life, Stays cool, Stays quiet, The matt screen, the comprehensive range of communications features and the solid battery performance make this notebook a good office companion.
Cons: Poor display brightness and contrast, Poor viewing angles, Combined port for headphones and mic, Separate audio ports for headphones and a microphone would be more appropriate. Also a better quality screen (brightness and contrast).
Conclusion: If you are looking for a 15.6” notebook that’s very responsive for most tasks and good at gaming, the Toshiba Tecra R850-S8540 stands out with its fast CPU and strong GPU performance. As more and more notebooks come out with Intel’s Sandy Bridge architecture, the competition will get more exciting, but the Core i7-2620M processor will be future proof for a few years. The notebook looks professional and sleek with a bright screen and it’s reasonably slim and light.
Pros: Great CPU power and gaming experience, good battery life for a 15.6" laptop and looks slim and attractive (this ain't your grandma's Tecra!)., Pro: Great CPU power and gaming experience, good battery life for a 15.6” laptop and looks modern.
Cons: Keyboard lacks travel, no direct HDMI port., Con: Keyboard lacks travel, no direct HDMI port.
Summary: Like the smaller Tecra R840 , 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. Those looking for a business laptop that they can easily take to meetings and that can last most of the workday on a charge will really like the Tecra R850.

Excerpt: Toshiba’s Tecra laptops are aimed more at professionals than home users, but the R850 is still reasonably priced for a high performance machine. If you want the most processing power for your money, it could be just what you’re looking for. Intel’s dual-core i5-2520M runs at 2.5GHz, jumping up to 3.2GHz using Turbo Boost when the thermal envelope allows.
Test: Toshiba Tecra R850 - tenký společník do firmy
8 November 2014
Summary: Toshiba Tecra R850 patří mezi pracovní notebooky střední třídy, což se většinou nejlépe pozná podle přítomnosti dokovacího konektoru. Ve své ceně nabízí velmi slušnou výbavu čítající všechna moderní rozhraní od DisplayPortu přes eSATA a USB 3.0 až po ExpressCard a dlouhou výdrž v tenkém provedení. Radost kazí jen méně kvalitní mechanika kláves, která při určitém typu psaní může způsobovat vynechávání kláves (v mém případě mezerníku).
Pros: dlouhá výdrž na baterie, tenký profil, dobrá výbava (DisplayPort, eSATA, USB 3.0, dokovací konektor)
Cons: nejistý stisk kláves, svištivý zvuk ventilátoru, v zátěži se nenabíjí
