Toshiba Portege Z835 Review

 

Toshiba's Z835 does not make a good first impression. It's as thin as a piece of cardboard, and feels just slightly stronger. These snap judgments about the laptop's strength are only worsened by a sub-par keyboard and a display that isn't sharp or...

Toshiba Portege Z835-P370 Intel i5 1.6GHz / 128GB / 6GB RAM

 

A scientific, in-depth analysis with side-by-side comparisons

Affordable

A little flimsy

Offers a good range of features (including VGA and HDMI outputs) at an attractive price, but the poor keyboard is a disappointment.

WiFI

 

Light and fast. I have owned just over a month. I think it's too late to send it back to Newegg

WiFi is a horror. It keeps disconnecting for know known reason. Then it usually cannot find anything to connect. This is all with a very good to excellent wireless signal according to my Android WiFi Finder App. It finds at least 10 router in the area...

Nice ultrabook

 

Had issues with the wifi connection dropping out after a few seconds with my Netgear N600 with the Portege out of the box. Once I did all the Windows 7 updates as well as update the Intel drivers for the ethernet and wifi adapters, the download speeds...

Bought this for my wife as she wanted a new laptop to start a master's of education program to manage her responsibilities between e-mail, note-taking, and presentations while traveling to different schools. So far, my wife loves the wireless...

Screen has a decent amount of glare ; Keypad is a little thin, but not unexpected (wife needs to cut her fingernails ;-) ; lack of DVD/CD drive can be annoying at times ; decent amount of bloatware

Ultrabook that's great at being an ultrabook

 

It's an ultrabook. Ultrabooks have tradeoffs. Toshiba made the choices that work exactly right for me. Thin and light without having to carry around ridiculous proprietary adapters or hassling with miniaturized ports or constantly looking around for a...

Toshiba understands what an Ultrabook is for, perhaps better than most other manufacturers. It needs to be light, thin, boot/wake really fast, and last forever on a single charge -- and when I get to a desk it needs to be able to connect to...

I worry about the screen when it's in my laptop bag. Toshiba makes all sorts of claims about the honeycomb structure backing the glass, and maybe they're true. I don't have any plans of performing destructive testing on it to find out ; This wouldn't...

Great portable little machine.

 

My only real concerns with this laptop is if the battery or something dies down the road I have to send it back to get most things fixed vs ordering the parts and doing it myself. Even still, I recommend it for anyone looking for a portable every day...

I have only had the laptop a week, but I'm pretty impressed. It does everything advertised. Boots quickly, its very portable/compact/light, sounds quality is decent for what it is, battery life is more than acceptable in ECO-mode ; Also, most reviews...

All of these cons are relativity marginal, and are somewhat expected when purchasing this type of laptop ; Screen quality is so-so ; Terrible glare when the monitor is facing windows during the day and relatively hard to see in direct sunlight ;...

update - Z835 still great

 

Worth a look if you're in the market for an up-to-date, well priced ultraportable -- and it's the lightest (and, except for the Mac Air) probably best-looking option out there.

Just wanted to add an update to my initial review of this great laptop. My Z835 has now traveled extensively with me and held up very well. It even served as my main home computer until I got all of my stuff in my new place after a move. The fan does...

None really to speak of. It is a bit slower than advertised by Toshiba to restart from sleep (usually taking between 6 and 10 seconds), but still faster than most spinning-hard drive laptops I've recently tried

Amazing, Shock

 

I was truly saddened by having to return this great little computer. I would buy another one when I am assured they have the fan/hd noise under control. I looked on the web and found many complaints about this...not so many in feedback however...

What a gorgeous, smaller laptop. Very light, outstanding feel to it. Very fast, I could go on about everything that it was......see cons

but alas the fan/HD something, made a very audible hum/whine that the Mrs.said NO WAY I am going to deal with that, so back it went to Newegg

GREAT ultraportable

 

Just received my Tosh Z835-P370 today from NE -- 36 hours after ordering it online. It's lovely, light, and easy to use. Love the backlit keyboard, quick startup, and ultraslim profile. I'm taking it with me to Dallas tomorrow. It's replacing a...

None, really; as has been noted in online reviews, the lid's thinness makes it more flexible, but I'd expect that given the very slim profile of the Z. I think the portability factor trumps this minor drawback

Top Notch Laptop!

 

Bought locally, only a few store has it for local pickup! Had previous version of the Portege, this one is even better, amazing weight <2.5lbs, powerful, nice look/feel, SSD could be on a faster 6GB SATA side versus 3GB. Overall I still give it a 10...
