Toshiba Satellite R630-141 review


A stunningly high-powered and portable laptop, ideal for life on the move

Incredible battery life ; build quality ; isolation-style keyboard ; superb processor ; DVD-RW

Not the best graphics abilities ; no office software

The Satellite R630-141 is one of the best ultra-portables you can buy. Offering stunning power and mobility at a fairly low price, we would be more than happy to have one in our bag next time we hit the road.

Toshiba Satellite R630-141 review


Plenty of power, but the Satellite R630 is let down by a mediocre keyboard. The glossy screen can also be frustratingly reflective.

Toshiba Satellite R630-102


good processor & memory an excellent combination in such a lightweight laptop (I don't do gaming). clear crisp visuals and good sound with earphones - fairly standard sound without. Very portable, even the power cable is very lightweight in comparison...

I touch type fast, and the keyboard is a bit slippy in comparison with others I've used. this wouldn't have stopped me buying it though
