Toshiba Portege Z835 review


Toshiba should know a thing or two about skinny, featherweight laptops. Back in 2007, the company unveiled the Portege R500, a 2.4-pound laptop

Aggressively priced ; Long battery life ; Lightweight, even for an Ultrabook ; Wide selection of ports, backlit keyboard

Performance trails other Ultrabooks ; Poor viewing angles ; Dated design, minor build quality issues

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.

Toshiba Portege Z830-S8302


The Toshiba Portege Z830-S8302 is a slim, speedy ultrabook that may be a little too light and too pricey for mass appeal.

Svelte magnesium alloy design. Backlit keyboard. Lighter chassis, complete with more I/O ports than any other ultrabook. SD card slot. WiDi 2.0 video streaming

Expensive. Wobbly screen. Finicky keyboard. Non-removable battery

Review Toshiba Satellite Z830-10J Ultrabook


Light as a feather. The power of a big notebook, but as light as

Extremely light for 13.3 inches; Rigid within the realms of what's possible; Fingerprint resistant surfaces; Comparatively many ports; Many ports at the rear; Good keyboard; High application performance; Full performance on battery power possible; Low...

Permanently audible fan; No docking option; Weak colors, viewing angles on the TFT; Built-in battery; Moderate battery life; Stiff mouse keys

The Acer Aspire S3, the Asus Zenbook UX31 (13.3 inch), UX21 (11.6 inch) and the Lenovo U300s are immediate contenders. Non-ultrabook contenders would be the MacBook Air 13, Lenovo X1, Dell Inspiron 14z and Samsung Series 9 900X3A.

Toshiba Portégé Z830 Ultrabook Review


Ultrabook perfection. Almost.

Very slim and light, Unibody design, Remains cool, Sturdy chassis, Good battery life

Slightly expensive, Fan makes noise when rear vent covered

Starting up the Z830 I noticed two things: how incredibly fast it is, and how much bloatware Toshiba has added on it. Windows 7 (Home Premium) actually boots up in 11 seconds flat thanks to the internal 128GB SSD. Obviously the Intel Core i5-2467M...

Toshiba Portege Z835 Ultrabook


The Toshiba Portege Z835 may have been the least expensive laptop in our ultrabook test, but make no mistake — this super-light laptop is a power player, making it our budget buy recommendation. The Z835 was easily the lightest laptop in our...

Toshiba Satellite Z830 (PT22LA-001001) Ultrabook


The way we hoped Ultrabooks would materialise when we first heard about them is about as close as Toshiba has gotten with its design of the 13.3in Sat...

Design ; Features ; Backlit keyboard

Screen's viewing angles ; Touchpad buttons ; Sharp chassis corners

If you want to buy an Ultrabook, then buy this one. It's only 1.1kg and 16mm thick, but it has a conventional feature-set and it feels very comfortable to use. We enjoyed reviewing it very much, more so than the models from Acer and ASUS. Our only...
