Toshiba Tecra M5

This 5.2 pound laptop packs with a 1.83 GHz Intel Core Duo T2400 processor, 512MB of memory, 100GB HDD, 128MB of NVIDIA Quadro NVS 110M graphics, 802.11 a/b/g Wi-Fi, Bluetooth (optional), and 14.1 inch XGA display into a 5.4 pound package. Toshiba Tecra M5 sells for US$ 1389.00. Laptop Magazine has a review of this laptop.

The Tecra M5 scored 236 on MobileMark 2005, besting the HP Compaq nc6400’s score of 219 by about eight percent. This is on a par with other systems we’ve tested with this processor. Runtime from the Tecra M5’s standard six-cell battery hovered right around 3.5 hours with Wi-Fi on or off. That’s a little below average, but Toshiba sells a 12-cell power pack ($71.99) that should deliver all-day battery life. The 3DMark03 score of 3,340 is impressive for a business notebook this size, which means this system should be able to handle Windows Vista’s Aero graphics with ease, not to mention 3D games at lower resolutions.
