Toshiba crams Core i3 and i5 options into business-like Tecra M11
There's no mistaking the fact that this understated machine is aimed primarily at those rocking suits more often than pajamas, but just because the all-new Tecra M11's outfit ain't flashy, that doesn't mean there's not a party raging on the inside. In an effort to keep the times, Toshiba has equipped its newest spreadsheet warrior with Intel's Core i3 and Core i5 processors, and just in case your company has yet to evolve its operating system, a copy of WinXP is thrown in alongside Windows 7.
Other specs include up to 3GB of DDR3 RAM, integrated Intel HD graohics (or an NVIDIA NVS 2100M on the $1,299 model), a 320GB hard drive (7,200rpm), dual-layer DVD writer and a 14-inch LED backlit panel (1,366 x 768).
You'll also get a webcam, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, WiFi, audio in out an ExpressCard slot and a three-year warranty, all for the low, low starting price of $899. Oh, and it's available today, junior!
