Review Update Toshiba Satellite Z930-119 Ultrabook

 

Ultrabook tuning. The Toshiba Satellite Z930 is the second-genera

Extremely light 13.3 incher; Rigid within the realms of what's possible; Matte surfaces; Many ports at the rear; High application performance; Fast, big SSD; Full performance on battery; Very good battery life; Fan's low operating noise; Low heat...

TFT's weak colors, viewing angles; Built-in battery; Weak typing feedback; Stiff mouse keys; No docking option

Pretty colors on the screen could make this ultrabook to a real threat to the Asus Zenbook Prime UX31A.

Toshiba Satellite Z930 Ultrabook

 

The Satellite Z930 is one of the best examples of what an Ultrabook should be: very light, very thin, well featured and fast

Very thin and very light ; Speedy solid state drive ; Full-sized ports ; Gigabit Ethernet

Glossy screen ; Touchpad buttons ; Battery life a little short

As far as Ultrabooks are concerned, the Satellite Z930 is a beauty. It's only about 17mm at its thickest point and it weighs well under 1.2kg. Despite being so thin and light it still manages to pack in full-sized ports and very good performance. Pick...

Toshiba Satellite Z930-10X review

 

We've already seen the Portege version of the Z930, so were eager to try out the much cheaper Satellite model. Apart from a few internal components, there's not much difference between the two, meaning you get a fantastically thin and light Ultrabook...

The keyboard won’t suit everyone, but the Satellite Z930 provides strong performance wrapped up in an attractive, lightweight design. And, at just £799, it’s competitively priced for an Ultrabook.

Toshiba Satellite Z930 Ultrabook review

 

Furthermore, the light weight of the Satellite Z930 allows you to use it on your lap with ease — and it's so light you can easily lift it and hold it up with one hand while you fiddle with your belongings or change position in your seat (if taking...

Toshiba Satellite Z930 review

 

It's very thin and light with decent performance, but you can get a similar laptop for a lot less

We had a better time with the touchpad, which has separate physical buttons rather than an all-in-one design. Again, button travel is limited, but they feel much more responsive in use. The touchpad is a decent size, using the same 16:9 aspect ratio as...
