Toshiba Debuts Its Three Thinnest, Lightest Business Laptops

Toshiba today unveiled three new laptops touted to be the lightest and thinnest high performance business laptops that the manufacturer has ever produced. According to the company, the Portégé R830, Tecra R840, and Tecra R850 were completely reengineered from the ground up with thin, light, and highly durable design in mind.

 

The Portégé R830 continues its claim as the world’s lightest 13.3-inch full-performance ultraportable laptop with an integrated DVD drive. Weighing just around 3.1 pounds, and roughly one inch thin, the Portégé R830 can be configured with 2nd-gen Intel Core i3, i5, and i7 processors thanks to the use of Airflow Cooling Technology.

The Tecra R840 is a full 14-inch business laptop and is 25 percent thinner and 20 percent lighter than its predecessor, the Tecra M11. The Tecra R850 is a 15.6-inch model featuring an additional 10-key numeric pad, and weighs around 5.3 pounds. This model is 19 percent thinner and 6 percent lighter than its predecessor, the Tecra A11. Both can be configured with 2nd-gen Intel Core i3, i5, and i7 processors and have a battery life of 11 hours for the R840 and 7 hours for the R850.

Pricing varies depending on configuration. For the Tecra R840 series, price ranges from $899 to $1479, while the Tecra R850 series ranges from $879 to $1399. The Portégé R830 series ranges from $1049 to $1649. All three series are available starting today.
