Toshiba Port?g? R835-P88 Laptop Review

 

Affordable Thin-and-Light. The lightweight Port?g? series will be refreshed this year as the all-new Ivy Bridge R930 series, but does the Sandy Bridge R830 series still have some life left in it? ...

Great CPU performance ; Stable base ; Easily accessible ports and expandability ; Optical drive ; Both USB 3.0 and eSATA ; Precise multi-touch touchpad

High surface temperatures ; High system noise ; Weak lid ; Narrow viewing angles ; Low contrast ; Poor outdoor usability/ Glossy screen ; Average battery life ; Spongy keyboard ; Throttles when under very high loads

Improved lid stability for better resistance to pressure and twisting. A brighter screen with a matte option would allow for better visibility when outdoors. Finally, a more able cooling solution to prevent throttling, high noise and high temperatures...

Toshiba Portege R835-P56X

 

Thanks to a new Core i5 processor and other welcome upgrades, the Toshiba Portege R835 is one of the best full-performance ultraportables you can buy for less than $1,000.

We liked but didn't love the last Toshiba Portege because it ran a little hot and we experienced some problems with the touchpad. Toshiba has addressed those issues with the Portege R835-P56X. The company also beefed up the graphics performance while...

Toshiba Portege R835-P50X

 

The R835-P50X delivers a solid typing experience.. Every key has that perfect bumpy, deep response that you don't get from the flatter keys of the MacBook Air 13-inch and Samsung Series 9. It's like a Lenovo ThinkPad keyboard, except that all the keys...

One of the lightest in the 13-inch class. Superb typing experience. Aluminum design. Built-in optical drive. Standard voltage processor. Excellent performance. Superior battery score. Reasonably priced. WiDi2

Poor speakers

The Toshiba Portege R835-P50X is the epitome of what an ultraportable should be: Lightweight, relatively inexpensive, powerful, and equipped with enough battery life to last from dawn to dusk.

Toshiba Portégé R835-P56X

 

Whenever we test one of Toshiba's ultraportable Portégé laptops, we're reminded of the stereotypical Volkswagen full of clowns: We're not sure exactly how they do it, but boy, do they cram a lot in there. So we were more than pleased when a new model...

Excellent speed, battery life ; Decent 3D graphics ; Optical drive ; Sturdy build

Disappointing keyboard, speakers ; Vent on side blows very hot air ; No Bluetooth

Under $1,000, this sturdy little ultraportable is an excellent value, with top-notch app performance, a robust feature set, and nearly the longest battery life we’ve seen.

Toshiba Portege R835-P56X

 

Even though this device lacks Bluetooth connectivity and the variety of options for communicating with a customer service representative is limited, the Toshiba Portege R835-P56X is a laptop computer with powerful performance and excellent memory and...

This Toshiba laptop offers up to nine hours of battery life on a single charge

The Toshiba Portege R835-P56X lacks Bluetooth connectivity and several customer service options

8.9/10 A long battery life, 640GB of memory and a lightweight design make this an ideal laptop for business and multimedia needs.
