A refresh of the Tecra R840, the R940 is a 14-inch notebook with a 1366 x 768p display that packs a 2.0-megapixel webcam. The 4.19-pound notebook carries 3rd-generation Intel Core i5 or i7 processors, ATI Thames Pro 64-Bit graphics with 1GB of VRAM, and an army of connectivity ports. It even sports a fingerprint and SmartCard reader. Fans of pointing sticks will appreciate the Accupoint nub in the middle of the R940’s matte keyboard.
