Introduction of the Toshiba Tecra A8-EZ8512

The Toshiba Company has done a good job by entry into the budget medium-size class, the Tecra A8 line starts could be afford by more procurers around the globe. The Tecra A8-EZ8512, include a decent trait set and the recent-generation elements, which include an Intel Core 2 Duo processor. The Lenovo 3000 N100 is one of the competitors of the Tecra A8 although it is quite affordable when compare with the latter; it also features a past-generation Core Duo processor.

Design of the Toshiba Tecra A8-EZ8512

The casing of the device is polish with a gray-and-black and also a brawny construction, which would be of great benefit to business procurers. The display is supported by two thick hinges, and the shock-absorbing hulk and hard drive protect the machine from daily thuds. If the AC Adaptor is include in the device the weight would be up to 7.3 pounds.

The device is equipped with a screen of 15.4-inch display that features an average 1, 280x800 resolution and a lusterless finish. In terms of bright and color-rich the Tecra A8 is less superior to the HP Pavilion dv6000t. The display dimension is great for functioning with two documents alongside or with many-columned Excel spreadsheets; movies appears attractive good on it. Above the Tecra A8's keyboard are two speakers drivable for listening to recorded speech, music sounds

Keyboard of the Toshiba Tecra A8-EZ8512

The keyboard of the Tecra A8 is a little bit tight and would be some-how inadequate for procurer with large fingers to use conveniently. A two-inch room to the left of the keyboard is committed to power, a button to commence Toshiba's help and configuration usefulness, and a button for fast access to brightness, volume, and other settings. One quibbles most procurer have with the Tecra A8 is that the Toshiba keyboards swerve from the typical layout, insertion of the Windows key on the upper-right side of the keyboard and getting rid of the right-side control button completely. I would say that this is a nice gesture because the Toshiba gives a procurer the choice of navigation devices. A miniature blue eraser-head spotting stick has its own arched commencement keys just underneath the gap bar that are inquisitively one above the other rather than alongside; a 3 inches diagonal touch pad features two alongside and committed scroll zones.

The Tecra A8's ports governed rear edge of the device, which can get jam-packed but also comprises the cord mess to the rear of a procurer's desk. The port assortment is appealing typical for a budget business device: three alongside USB 2.0, a four-pin FireWire, modem, Ethernet ports and VGA-out. Along the laptop's front edge the Headphone and microphone jacks are conveniently located, enclosed by a volume wheel and Wi-Fi on/off control. The slots for the Type II PC cards and SD cards is found on the left side of the device and also on the right is the built-in DVD burner Wireless alternatives includes Bluetooth 2.0+EDR and 802.11a/b/g Wi-Fi.

Battery of the Toshiba Tecra A8-EZ8512

A familiar six-cell battery which turned in an average score of 1 hour and 43 minutes on DVD playback supplies power to the Tecra A8. A procurer can expect longer life during archetypal Windows use, but most procurers would have liked to see the Tecra A8 hold out for less than 3 hours.

I would that the one year warranty given by the Toshiba Company is a nice gesture to secure most procurers about the functionality of the device.

The good: little price; strong construction; good-looking matte-finish screen; fingerprint reader; long guarantee.

The bad: Keyboard could be larger; weak speakers; smallish touch pad; just average recital and battery life.

The bottom line: Although larger businesses might be enthusiastic to pay for a more affluent feature set, the Toshiba Tecra A8 is a reasonably priced, basic laptop for individuals and small-business procurers.
