Review Toshiba Portégé R700 Notebook


Untiring business professional. Toshiba promises up to 12 hours o

Outstanding application performance; Long battery life is possible (depending on the work load); Light, slim design; Stable magnesium case with nice look and feel; Optical drive; Interface equipment with HDMI and eSATA and docking port; Pleasant...

Noise development; Heat emissions under load; Illumination and contrast of the display

Small business notebooks with similarly outstanding application performance can be found for instance in the Vaio VPCZ12M9E/B.G4, in the somewhat larger Latitude E6410, Lenovo Thinkpad T410s or X201s.

Toshiba Portégé R700 Review


In honor of the 25 years Toshiba has been making laptops—starting with the T1100 in 1985—Toshiba is dubbing its new R700 an “anniversary” system. The laptop is the newest addition to Toshiba's venerable Portégé line of business ultraportables. It...

Slick styling; sturdy build; full-power processor; SSD provides data security

Trade-off for SSD is limited storage; we miss the R600's volume dial

Nevertheless, the R700 continues the series’ tradition of excellence by combining a superb combination of ultraportability and business performance.

Toshiba Portege R700-S1330 Review - PCWorld


The screen is a reasonably good LED-backlit matte LCD, filling out a resolution of 1366 by 768 easily enough. Colors were good, but the R700 struggles to fill large black areas in video. The Intel HD integrated graphics solution is more than adequate...

Great style for any user

Mushy Chiclet-style keyboard

Toshiba delivers a great machine with a few annoying flaws.

Toshiba Portege R700


This sturdy 3-pound powerhouse performs like a champ and lasts six hours on a charge.

Frequent travelers or anyone else looking for a highly portable but powerful notebook will find a lot to like about the Portege R700. It's one of the fastest notebooks we've tested under 4 pounds, and the design feels stronger than its 12-inch...

Toshiba Portege R700-15P


Weighing just 1.5kgs and sporting unquestionable ultra-portable dimensions the Portege could be the perfect travel companion

The Portege R700 boats an elegant design, sturdy build quality and it packs enough power under its hood to tackle applications with ease. A capable ultra-portable for road warriors.

Portege R700-S1331, Tecra R700-007 Laptop


Toshiba's Portege R700-S1331, sold as the Tecra R700-007 in Canada, is an uncompromising thin and light notebook, a true power-focused ultraportable for the executive class.

Typically, thin & light notebooks are designed with long battery life and portability in mind. As a result, many manufacturers discard the optical drive to slim down the chassis, go for 11" or 12" inch screens and often use cramped keyboards that are...

Review: Toshiba's Portege R700 Hits Mark With XP, Win 7


Toshiba's Portege R700 offers an interesting approach with both Windows XP and Windows 7, in a thin-and-light notebook that the CRN Test Center examines.

This is a stellar notebook that we highly recommend for enterprises of just about any size, and believe approaches like this could lead to many businesses to consider making room, or more room, for a notebook refresh in their IT budget.

Toshiba Portégé R700


With superb performance, battery life, and business features, this all-star ultraportable knocks it out of the park at a not-so-elite price.

Sleek design; stellar performance; included optical drive; extensive security and durability features; solid-state drive, loud speakers; vast array of ports and expansion

Small keys; grainy Webcam; odd placement of volume keys

In the end, we’re thoroughly impressed with this ultraportable. It offers every business feature a road warrior could want: It's light, it's powerful, and it can last all day on a charge. And most astonishingly, it costs about half what its predecessor...

Toshiba Portege R700 (PT311A-00J00Q) notebook


Toshiba Portege R700 (PT311A-00J00Q) review: A thin and light 13.3in laptop with great performance

Thin and light, fast performance, great touchpad, built-in optical drive, only 1.45kg

Poor keyboard, gets very warm, fingerprint software conflicts with Firefox

The Toshiba Portege R700 will impress you with its light weight, slim build and great performance. However, having a powerful Core i5 CPU installed in its thin base means that it's a laptop that also runs very warm, making it uncomfortable to use on...
