Interface distribution for lefties, Gets very warm under load, Restless fan, Improvements in the fan's noise characteristics. Also, the display could have a slightly higher contrast and be more evenly illuminated

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 R630-141 Refurbished


With i5 it has lots of power for a small light machine. Nice screen. I like the shallow chiclet keyboard but not sure everyone would!

Personally not keen on the square black design with shiny silver trim - there are much chicer ultralights.

It looks good, feels robust, works well, and offers a good balance between 'desktop' and 'portability'.

Toshiba Satellite R630-13R


I like the laptop and think its worth the price I paid. I would not have bought it at the original asking price however. At that price I would have paid the extra and bought a Macbook Pro. The battery life seems very good to me and the design is very...

The amount of rubbish software that is on this laptop would be enough to make someone send it back. It is completely unnecessary, everyone hates it across the board and yet companies still do it, knowing it has a detrimental affect on their sales...
