A strong all-round laptop with a great build and plenty of useful features

Toshiba Satellite L630-13M review

 

Toshiba's 13.3in screen Satellite L630-13M is a highly portable laptop that retains the same 1366x768 resolution as 15.6in-screen models. You do miss out on a numeric keypad and a little wrist space, however.

A truly portable laptop, the Toshiba Satellite L630-13M isn’t as attractive as the same-price HP but offers a DVD drive built-in, a lighter combined weight, better Windows performance and integrated graphics.

Toshiba Satellite L630/00E

 

Includes both 32- and 64-bit versions of Windows 7 Home Premium ; Reasonably rugged ; Decent battery life, but you'd expect that for the specs

Keyboard is awful to type on ; Status lights aren't visible due to positioning ; SSD would increase ruggedness

Toshiba's L630/00E is very much an entry-level laptop, with the spin of being kid-friendly. While the wipe-clean keyboard is horrible to use for adults, it may save some sanity if you decide to go down the path of buying a computer for your kids.

"Great laptop for university"

 

I bought this laptop on a whim (purely because of the keyboard before looking at specs). I find the keyboard easy to type on; much easier than my dell studio which I had before this. So far this laptop has worked better than I expected. The battery...

Toshiba Satellite L630-12U Refurbished

 

Size and weight. And it looks nice.

Awful speakers: quiet and tinny. I think that is a weakness with Toshiba laptops. Battery life actually isn't too bad: 3h35 on eco mode with light use before it shut down, though no where near that advertised (4h50). However, the battery meter can't be...
