Review Toshiba Portégé Z930-105 Ultrabook


Ultra-slim business. Striking looks, low weight, long runtimes and first-rate connections. Sounds like the perfect business qualities. However, there are shortcomings in details. Why is the premium claim not met?

Very lightweight, Solid base unit, Matte surfaces, Rear-sided ports, High application performance, Very swift SSD, 100% performance on battery power, Usually quiet fan, Low heat dissipation, Bright, matte screen, The low weight and the base unit's...

Tight viewing angle, Non-removable battery, Weak typing feedback, Virtually inexistent mouse key drop, No docking port, Input devices are the most crucial elements in business. However, the build prevents a longer key drop for better feedback. The...

Toshiba Portégé Z930-10Q ultrabook review


Summary: Toshiba's 13.3in. Portégé Z930 is a small, neat and lightweight business-grade ultrabook with mobile broadband support. However, it's expensive, and the screen could be better.

Extremely light and compact, Good range of full-size connectors, Integrated mobile broadband, Very good performance

Poor vertical screen viewing angles, Rear-mounted connectors are awkward to access, Expensive

Toshiba Portege Z930 Review


When Toshiba updated the Portege Z830 with the newer processor, they just changed to the newer processor. The form factor, the rest of the specs and most importantly, the very light build remained as it is. And that keeps the Z930 as the lightest...

Very slim and light, Non reflective display, Good keyboard for marathon typing sessions, Good battery life

Port placement behind the display is annoying, Rivals offer better display resolution numbers, Slightly boring persona

Toshiba Portege Z930 Review


This year has been pretty big as far as Intel goes. There's the Ultrabooks movement and also the big Windows 8 launch that has been the centre of attention, apart from smartphones and tablets, of course. Following this trend, there have been several...

The Toshiba Portege Z930 is priced at Rs. 96,000 here in India. It’s not necessarily the sturdiest of Ultrabooks, but it is one of the lighest. So if you’re travelling a lot and need something light and reasonably powerful, then this has to be it. Of...

Toshiba Portege Z930 Ultrabook (model PT235A-00V00D01)


Toshiba Portege Z930 review: a business-oriented Ultrabook with good features, an impressively light weight and thin chassis

Core i7 CPU ; Fast SSD ; Built-in HDMI, VGA, Ethernet ; Battery life

Screen's viewing angles ; Touchpad could be better ; No keyboard backlight ; Only one USB 3.0 port

Toshiba's thin-and-light Portege Z930 ships with business features such as a vPro chipset, biometrics and integrated 3G, in addition to a useful range of built-in ports. It could use a better screen, touchpad and keyboard, but its overall usability is...

Toshiba Portégé Z930-108 review


The Toshiba Portégé Z930 shares the same chassis as its predecessor, the Z830. The Toshiba Z830 was the company's first ultrabook, an attempt to clone the look and specification of the Apple MacBook Air. But as a development of the Z830, it means the...

Toshiba's Z930-108 could make a good choice as a portable business laptop. It's thin, extremely light and has good build quality. Features are abundant and it’s a fast performer too. But the Z930-108 doesn't quite deserve the ultimate business laptop...
