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....

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 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...

Toshiba Portégé R830-S8310

 

Call it a supermodel complex: For some, a laptop can never be thin enough. Those folks might, at first glance, look past the Toshiba Portégé R830-S8310, a lightweight ultraportable with just a bit more girth than the world-class runway stars. But for...

Thin, light, durable chassis ; Long battery life ; Solid application performance ; Three-year warranty

Cramped-feeling keyboard ; Loud cooling fan

The Portégé R830-S8310 is everything highly mobile business users need, at a price nearly all of them can justify in their budgets.

Toshiba Portégé R830-138 review

 

This has to be a world-beating laptop for that price, right?

Good office performance ; Decent battery life ; Very thin and light

Very high price ; Some flex in chassis ; Pre-loaded software

Toshiba Portégé R830-138 review

 

Want an ultraportable notebook that concentrates on features rather than style? Optical drive, full speed processor, wireless display, USB 3.0, light weight, long battery: Toshiba delivers again with the Sandy Bridge update to the Portege range - mostly.

A slim, lightweight business ultraportable that gives you full-size performance, features and battery life - and stands up to the rigours of travel

A slim, lightweight business ultraportable that gives you full-size performance, features and battery life - and stands up to the rigours of travel

A very business-like 13-inch ultraportable at a business price, the Portege R830 is truly portable but makes the minimum of compromises. The design statement it makes is that you need to get some work done

Toshiba Portege R830 (PT321A-01L002) ultraportable laptop

 

The Toshiba Portege was one of the first ultraportable laptops on the market to still offer a full feature-set despite its small dimensions and light ...

Excellent performance and battery life ; Good build quality ; Plenty of built-in features

Keyboard not backlit ; Screen not great ; Long charging time

Toshiba's Portege R830 is a great choice for business users who want something that's easily mobile, yet fully-featured and fast. It's not perfect -- it could use a better screen, a backlit keyboard and a quicker charging time -- but it's very well...

Toshiba Portégé R830-1DZ review

 

If you're looking for a blend of portable and powerful, then the Toshiba Portégé R830-1DZ could be right up your street.

Graphics aside, the raw performance of the Toshiba Portégé R830-1DZ is head and shoulders above the opposition in this group test. The blend of high-quality components and variety of connectivity options in this small shell combine to make the Portégé...

Toshiba Portege R830 review

 

Our version of the Toshiba Portege R830, the R830-138, offers great performance and some smashing features, such as integrated mobile broadband. There's no denying that it's very expensive for a 13-inch laptop, though.

Fast processor ; Integrated mobile broadband ; Good keyboard

Build quality could be better ; Short battery life

Overall, the Toshiba Portege R830-138 is rather disappointing. It offers great performance and we love the fact that mobile broadband is built in. But we expected better build quality, given the laptop's high price tag, and its battery life is also...
