Toshiba Portege Z30t-B1320W10 Notebook Review

 

Old dog, new tricks. The latest Z30t from Toshiba is yet again nearly identical to its brethren from two years ago, though this time, it's sporting a Broadwell chipset and a 1080p touchscreen with antiglare filter. Are these changes enough to keep pace...

lightweight magnesium construction, sturdy base unit, superior thermal management, great overall system performance, long battery life, very good display panel (color, contrast), good input devices

grainy image quality introduced by touchscreen diffusion filter, flimsy display lid, silly maintenance design for a business PC, subpar speakers, expensive when compared to some close competitors

Two years is an eternity in computing terms, and it’s been at least that long since we’ve seen any significant changes to the design of these high-end ultraportables from Toshiba. Nevertheless, in spite of the aging case, the Z30t-B1320 is portable...

The Toshiba Portege Z30t is an improved version of the Z30, with a bumped up full HD resolution and the addition of multi-touch capability. It retains its highly portable physique at only 1.2kg with a 13.3-inch screen. But how does it match up to the...

Lightweight ; Premium feel ; Business security features

Pointing stick feels rough and unfinished ; Keys not large enough if you have large hands, but it's usable

The Toshiba Portege Z30t is a very lightweight business notebook, with a 13.3-inch screen allowing to fit into tighter compartments compared to the more common 14-inch form factor of its direct competitors. It boots up quickly, as expected of an...
