Toshiba updates Tecra laptop line with R940 and R950 models

Toshiba’s business-oriented Tecra laptop line just got updated with two new models – the R940 and R950 laptops – that from now on will serve as successors to the R840 and R850 models, released last year.

Being new offerings the R940 and R950 feature an updated design as well as sturdy chassis, reinforced with a honeycomb rib structure, that are even a bit sleeker than the ones found in the R840 and R850. In addition to the chassis the new Toshiba Tecra models come with spill-resistant keyboards, hard drive impact sensors, and a shock absorbing design.

Turning an eye to the specs we’ll find 14-inch (R940) and 15.6-inch diagonal (R950) LED-backlit widescreen HD displays. The novelties can also boast support for the latest Intel Ivy Bridge processors as well as support for up to 16 GB of DDR3 RAM and 512 GB SSD drives.

The new Tecra models are available now for a price starting at 599 USD and up. Toshiba, however, has an ace in the sleeve – businesses that purchase the new Tecra models until August 30, 2012 will get a free upgrade to Windows 7 Professional and an additional stick of 4 GB DDR3 memory. There’s a limit though – you can purchase up to 100 units.
