Toshiba Portege Z930 Ultrabook


Toshiba Portege Z930 review: a business-oriented Ultrabook with good features, an impressively light weight and thin chassis

Core i7 CPU ; Fast SSD ; Built-in HDMI, VGA, Ethernet ; Battery life

Screen's viewing angles ; Touchpad could be better ; No keyboard backlight ; Only one USB 3.0 port

Toshiba's thin-and-light Portege Z930 ships with business features such as a vPro chipset, biometrics and integrated 3G, in addition to a useful range of built-in ports. It could use a better screen, touchpad and keyboard, but its overall usability is...

Toshiba Portege Z930


Toshiba takes back the title of lightest 13in laptop in the world with this Ultrabook.

Toshiba Portege Z930 Ultrabook Review


Toshiba Portege Z930 Ultrabook is a new creation from the company. It runs on windows operating system and is powered by a strong processor.

• Efficient processor ; • Light in weight ; • Updated version of windows 7 OS

• Screen is not so impressive ; • Audio quality is not up to the mark ; • Not so rugged design

The Portege Z930 Review tells us that this is just an average ultrabook, which has been over-priced. It is light, but not very sturdy. No exceptional features are also not there on this gadget. The only good thing about this device is that the users...

Weight and design

Slightly slow performance - upgrading to the 256GB SDD was nearly double the price
