Toshiba Portege Z835 review


Lightest. Least expensive. Best selection of ports. There are tons of reasons to love this aggressively priced Ultrabook, though its dated design and so-so performance will turn off some shoppers.

Stuck on the Toshiba Portege R705's magnesium alloy palmrest is a shiny sticker celebrating the company's 25 years of "laptop innovation." Now, we're the

Incredibly light 3.2-pound chassis ; Great manufacturing quality ; Boasts Intel Wireless Display technology

Runs warm ; Shorter battery life than promised ; Small keys

Toshiba Portege Z835 review: Toshiba Portege Z835


Toshiba Portege Z835

The ; offers more configuration options than most ultrabooks, and includes features, such as an Ethernet port, left out of other models.

The design worked fine on the least expensive ultrabook, but this more-expensive version doesn't look and feel as nice as the competition.

The original Toshiba Portege Z835 was a fantastic value that helped us overlook a weak touch pad/keyboard combo. This faster version is about $200 more, but keeps the same so-so design.

Toshiba Portege Z835 ultrabook review


In the last couple of weeks, ultrabooks — Intel's new category of ultrathin and ultralight laptops — have been arriving one by one, each aiming to derail the MacBook Air's lead with a mix of...

Incredibly light (even lighter than the 13-Macbook Air) ; Backlit keyboard ; Good battery life ; Very competitive price

Not the most attractive design ; Build quality could be better ; Screen is washed out ; Base configuration only has Core i3

The Z835 proves that Intel’s vision might not be so impossible after all

Review: Toshiba Portege Z835


Our expectations were low for Toshiba's ultrabook, but this $900 machine holds more than a few surprises.

Gorgeous display, great performance, ultra-cheap price, and dazzlingly light weight. More port options than most ultrabooks. Sleek and sophisticated looks despite the plastic construction. Above-average battery life at over 5 hours

More crashes than you can shake a MacBook Air at. Screen flexes ominously. Weak keyboard with ugly backlighting. Ports (almost all in the rear) are difficult to reach

Toshiba Portege 3505 review: Toshiba Portege 3505


Toshiba Portege 3505

Great design; screen swivels and folds; fastest CPU for a tablet; largest hard drive; USB 2.0 ports.

Big for a tablet; expensive; speaker is covered when screen is folded.

Toshiba stuffed the best of everything into the Portégé 3505 tablet, resulting in a versatile, portable powerhouse.

Review Toshiba Portégé Z10t Convertible


Clipped wings. A Windows Convertible for 1700 Euros (~$2328) must have some highlights to offer. However, docking was a sobering experience for us, although the Z10t is basically a well-balanced bundle. ...

Power of a subnotebook; Long battery runtimes; IPS Full HD with wide viewing angles; AR-treated screen; Many standard ports; Connectivity includes LTE; Digitizer + stylus; Low emissions in normal use; Security features; Stable, high-quality keyboard dock

Dock only allows an opening angle of 100 degrees; Poor camera quality; High price

100 degree opening angle? Tall people will not want to work at the desk that way.

Shallow key presses ; That hinge isn't pretty ; Windows 8 ecosystem ; A bit chunky as a tablet
