Toshiba Tecra A11-11H
Advantages: Current gen. specs.
Disadvantages: wireless adapter
The Toshiba Tecra A11-11H is generally a great laptop. Having owned one for almost a year, it has been consistently reliable and has an impressive array of added tools. The computer itself will serve anybody well that is looking for a laptop for work, studying and leisure purposes; although it may struggle with recent, high tech video games that require a lot of power.
The built-in webcam provides excellent clarity and is particularly useful for such services as Skype and MSN Messenger video chat. It also offers an impressively accurate face recognition tool that can be used as an alternative to the traditional method of inputting passwords to login. Another alternative security feature is the fingerprint scanner, that enables you to scan your fingerprint (all digits of both hands can be registered for use) to login on your computer account or even registered accounts with sites such as YouTube. Unfortunately, the fingerprint scanner isn't very accurate and you can find yourself furiously trying to scan your finger, just to get rejected and having to manually input your password. In this way, it feels almost like a gimmick and doesn't really add any helpful functionality.
Another problem with this laptop (and, from experience, most Toshibas), is the use of wireless networking. Most of the time, the built-in wireless adapter works perfectly fine and can reach staggering download speeds. However, now and again it will suddenly stop working (particularly when torrenting), forcing you to log out then back in to your account (or even restart the laptop).
All in all, this laptop offers great functionality and performs brilliantly, it's just a few small inconsistencies that cause frustration.
Summary: great but sometimes annoying!
