Review Toshiba Satellite R830-11C Notebook


Business Subnotebook. Toshiba has released the Satellite R830, a

Matt display; Low weight; Magnesium case; Good battery life; SSD drive; USB 3.0

Battery recharges slowly; High price; Some noise from the SSD

Two attractive competitors to the Toshiba Satellite R830 are the Lenovo IdeaPad Z370 and the Dell Vostro 3350. Both notebooks have the same processor, but while the IdeaPad Z370 has the same graphics card, the Dell subnotebook has AMD graphics. Both...

Toshiba Satellite R830 review


If you're on the go a lot, what you want is a small, light laptop that'll slip in and out of a bag. It should have a good screen, a comfortable keyboard and plenty of processing power plus a battery that just keeps going. Is the latest member of...

Light, powerful, good battery life, Portégé quality without the Portégé price

Awkward keyboard design

This is a Portégé for the rest of us: an excellent ultraportable with no gimmicks

Toshiba Satellite R830


This light and stylish, magnesium-clad ultra-portable laptop will make a great, affordable travelling companion for productivity-oriented individuals.

Very light (less than 1.5kg) ; Understated and stylish ; Generous connectivity and specs ; Excellent value

Mediocre screen ; Keyboard feedback too shallow

Connectivity is another area where the R830 has few rivals in its size/price class. VGA and HDMI are around for video, 3.5mm headphone and microphone jacks deal with audio, while data is taken care of by USB 3.0, USB 2.0 and a combined USB 2.0/eSATA...

Toshiba Satellite R830-143 review


If you're looking for something to travel around with that you'll use largely for working as well as playing the odd movie then the Toshiba Satellite R80-143 could be right up your street.

Toshiba’s Satellite R830-143 is the smallest of the laptops on test and if you’re after a highly portable model with excellent battery life, it’s hard to beat. Its diminutive size means that some compromises have been made, and while the screen is...

Toshiba Satellite R830-143 13.3" Laptop


In my search for an affordable mobile laptop I came accross this one, a nice smooth transition into the world of i5 and a great looking laptop. I would have bought it there and then were it not for my sudden work commitment.

Light weight and professional looking

The webcam could be slightly better

Toshiba Satellite R830-143


Bought this after extensive research and agonizing to replace my Lenovo Thinkpad 60 which after being on the blink for a year, finally packed up. The Toshiba Satellite R830-143 is fairly good value for money. It's relatively fast to start up and to...

Lightweight, fast, well-thought out file system

Keyboard, screen plug, only 2 USBs, noisy fan

Consumer review by:

Toshiba Satellite R830-182


Small and light with great battery life (though probably not the 10hrs they claim) ; Looks good and feels strong ; Extremely fast and powerful, runs a number of large complex programmes (ARCGIS, Illustrator etc) simultaneously with no processsing issues

Cant think of any, I'm really pleased with this laptop which for the money is really excellent value

Solid portable solution


Only limited experience from this recent purchase but so far all positive. Obviously somewhat limited screen size but a good compromise for a full performance mobile package. Considered a tablet but if you want full business software capability, good...
