How does the Toshiba Satellite Z830 measure up to its ultrabook rivals?

First Look: Toshiba Portege Z830

 

There's lot to be said about the Toshiba ultrabook. There are two models available, the Portege, we're dealing with today, and a Satellite model, which is aimed more at the home market. Toshiba is only offering Core i3 and Core i5 models at the start....

Incredibly light, fantastic business features, good keybaord and trackpad

A little dull to look at, noisy fan

The Toshiba is a bit of strange machine. To look at, it has none of the excitement that you might enjoy with a MacBook Air, or the Asus UX31. But it's lighter than both, it has more ports than both - and every other ultrabook - and it's got more...

Okay, first a confession. The Toshiba bods wouldn't let us play on the newly announced Toshiba Portege Z830 Ultrabook. Heck they wouldn't even let us go

Toshiba Portégé R830-138 review

 

This has to be a world-beating laptop for that price, right?

Good office performance ; Decent battery life ; Very thin and light

Very high price ; Some flex in chassis ; Pre-loaded software

Toshiba Portégé R830-1DZ review

 

If you're looking for a blend of portable and powerful, then the Toshiba Portégé R830-1DZ could be right up your street.

Graphics aside, the raw performance of the Toshiba Portégé R830-1DZ is head and shoulders above the opposition in this group test. The blend of high-quality components and variety of connectivity options in this small shell combine to make the Portégé...

Toshiba Satellite Z830

 

The Toshiba Satellite Z830 might look like a laptop, but if it could speak it would tell you it's an ultrabook - a new breed of laptop with impossibly thin dimensions, but still packing top-end specs. The Satellite Z830 is 0.83 cm thin and weighs just...

The Toshiba Satellite Z830 is a trendy, lightweight computer that ticks all the boxes. it’s thin, powerful and does everything asked of it without fuss. The Toshiba Satellite Z830 might be a little on the pricey side but it’s still one to watch....

Toshiba Z830-10T

 

There's something nice about having a laptop that receives positive passed remarks and the Toshiba Z830-10T certainly does this. It's one of the increasing numbers of ultra-portable laptops on the market and among the best, and has a price tag of just...

Very light and slim, Unique Looks, Great Connectivity, Nice Keyboard, Great Battery

Poor Screen Angles, Average Build Quality

Review: Toshiba Satellite Z830 Ultrabook

Toshiba Portege R830 review

 

Toshiba has built a good reputation for its Portege range...

Small, light and portable; lots of different models, with a variety of specifications

Chassis not updated from previous model; this class of notebook may suffer as ultrabooks become more popular

The Toshiba Portege R830 is small and portable, with a good quality keyboard and a nice, matte screen. Toshiba could have done more with the design, but there are models to keep those who do, and don’t need optical drives, happy.
