Toshiba Tecra A3 Comes In Under $1000

The Tecra A3 incorporates the next-generation Intel Centrino Mobile Technology (formerly codenamed Sonoma). This new technology is built around Intel Pentium M processors with 533 MHz front side bus, integrated Intel PRO/Wireless 2200 BG Network Connection (802.11 b/g wireless LAN) and the new Mobile Intel 915 Express Chipset (formerly codenamed Alviso). This combination of features enables the Tecra A3 to deliver better performance with improved wireless and mobile security options.

Equipped with a 15-inch XGA display, the Tecra A3 features an integrated CD-RW/DVD-ROM optical disc drive, 40GB hard drive, 256MB memory (expandable to 2GB) and the Microsoft Windows XP Professional operating system. The Tecra A3 comes bundled with ConfigFree, Toshiba’s intuitive graphic wireless management utility. One-touch undocking option for simple desk-to-mobile computing is another value-added feature of the Tecra A3.

The Tecra A3 is available with either a one-year limited warranty with Toshiba’s premier, global service for the mobile computing user. Customers can choose from several service options, including extended warranties, carry-in support at Authorized Service Providers throughout the country for same-day or next-day service, or utilizing any of more than 3,000 UPS Stores for packaging and delivery of the product to a centralized Depot for 24-hour service turnaround.
