Practical Test: Toshiba Portégé Z830-10N (Core i3) Notebook


A week at the CES. After publishing the comprehensive review of the German Core i5 version in December, we can now test the smaller Core i3 version thanks to Intel. In addition to numerous benchmarks, the inexpensive ultrabook also had to show how it...

Small dimensions and weight, Matt screen, High-grade WLAN, The system performance doesn't give reason for complaint in routine use despite "weak" components

Annoying fan noise, Wobbly and easy to warp display, Short key drop, A stable display - we have an awkward feeling every time we open the lid

Toshiba Portégé R830 - X3435 Notebook Review


Toshiba's Portégé series has been around for quite a while now, but they've often slipped under the radar, leaving their more flashy competitors to make a noise about their wares. Nevertheless, in terms of functionality, the Portégé series has been...

The Portégé R830 is priced at Rs.85,589 (MRP) and Rs. 80,990 (MOP). It’s got the specs, but the price is quite exorbitant. The only noticeable cons in the performance were lack of a backlit keyboard and slight overheating when pushed to the max....

Review Toshiba Satellite Z830-10J Ultrabook


Light as a feather. The power of a big notebook, but as light as a netbook. The Z830, as Toshiba's first ultrabook, presents itself with good battery runtimes and outdoor suitability. Where is the device positioned in comparison to the ultrabook...

Extremely light for 13.3 inches, Rigid within the realms of what's possible, Fingerprint resistant surfaces, Comparatively many ports, Many ports at the rear, Good keyboard, High application performance, Full performance on battery power possible, Low...

Permanently audible fan, No docking option, Weak colors, viewing angles on the TFT, Built-in battery, Moderate battery life, Stiff mouse keys, Free-fall test: passed. Pressure test: passed. Spill test: passed. - But what about the noise test? Do...

Toshiba Portégé R830 Review


There was a time when Toshiba's line of Portégé business ultraportables was the epitome of sleek utility, particularly in the days of the R500 and R600. Samsung stole some of that show when it released the Series 9 (reviewed here)—the closest a PC has...

Extremely portable; great performance for the size; superb battery life

Ho-hum looks; odd proprietary SSD

Naturally, the extra 1.3GHz of the R830’s CPU produced benchmark results that were substantially superior to those of the Series 9—ranging from 42 percent better in Quake III to 112 percent better in MainConcept. Against our ultraportable zero-point...

Review Toshiba Portege R830-110 Notebook


Low cost expert. Light, long battery life, and well put together.

Good application performance; Good battery life; Light weight; Slim case; (Stable), matte magnesium case; Optical drive; HDMI, eSATA, Docking Port; Precise multi-touchpad; Good but not perfect input devices; Sensible hardware tools

System noise under load; Short travel of the keys and touchpad buttons; Weak TFT backlight; Low contrast of the display; Narrow viewing angles

Very good battery life with a low power consumption.

Toshiba Portege Z830 Review Review


Yet another ultrabook arrived on the scene, and comes with excellent performance, and all things considered, is at par with the Lenovo IdeaPad U300s. The only thing letting it down is the price, and the HP Folio 13 takes the advantage of that, in terms...

Good performance, Extremely slim form factor, Bright display, Non-reflective screen increases usage comfort

Expensive, Build quality & feel doesn�t justify price tag

Toshiba Portege Z830


Very light and thin, lots of ports

Display flex, shallow keyboard

The Toshiba Portege Z830 is the best equipped and lightest Ultrabook currently on the market. It has more ports and you won't feel like you've given up expandability for extreme portability. It's insanely light at 2.48 lbs. and very thin. In short,...

Toshiba Portege Z830/Z835 review: nice overall package, a few flaws nevertheless!


The Toshiba Z830 is the lightest and thinnest ultrabook in its class right now and manages to offer a good mix of features and performances. If it weren't for the overall fragile feel and the loud cooling system, I'd say it's a top pick, especially...

thin and very light, magnesium used for the whole body, decent performances, matte screen, backlit keyboard, good trackpad, lots of ports, excellent battery life, good price tag

mushy keyboard with poor feedback, annoying fan, not the best display, feels fragile, rather slow SSD

Toshiba Portege R830 (Core i7-2620M 2.7GHz) - It Just Keeps On Going


The Toshiba Portege R830 is one for the suits, those who have no time for anything other than an Intel Core i7 processor, a built-in optical drive, and more than 4 hours of battery life. It's slim profile and 1.4kg light weight make it as portable as...
