For around $1,300, the Tecra M6 offers an Intel Core Duo T2300E (1.66GHz) processor, 512MB of DDR2-533 memory, 80GB HDD, Bluetooth 2.0 +EDR, a CD-RW/DVD-ROM combo drive, 802.11 a/b/g Wi-Fi, and a 12.1-inch WXGA display with TruBrite technolgy. Security features include TPM (trusted platform module), a fingerprint reader, hard drive protection, spill-resistant keyboard, and a Security Assist Console. Here’s the verdict:
The machine is well built, attractive and includes most anything an average business user or student might need or want, including TPM hardware-based encryption and a fingerprint reader. My overall impression is that the Tecra M6 is a fairly solid sub-$1500 thin-and-light machine, and its numerous security and protection features serve to enhance its value considerably.
