Toshiba modernizes fast 14-inch Tecra
Toshiba late yesterday rolled out the Tecra M11 as its key mid-range pro notebook. The 14-inch system gets a completely new redesign with a texture designed to reduce fingerprints. Inside, it gets much faster processors that start with a 2.13GHz Core i3 and scale up to a 2.4GHz Core i5; an NVIDIA Quadro NVS 2100M at the high end gives it dedicated workstation graphics.
A base M11 starts at $879 for a custom-ordered model with the Core i3 chip, Intel's integrated video, 2GB of RAM, a 250GB hard drive and a DVD burner. A pre-made configuration starts at $899 with a 320GB drive, and it along with faster configurations should be be available today.
