Toshiba Portege Z30

 

Hands-on: A 1.2kg super-portable business laptop with more features than most

best laptops to buy.

Oct, 2013

Expert review by : Jacob Grana (techradar.com)

Toshiba Portégé Z30

 

Everything business users want, and little else

Tactile backlit keyboard ; Ports galore ; Solid battery life

Lackluster screen ; Tinny, oddly-placed speakers ; Imprecise trackpad

The average user will not find the Toshiba Portégé Z30's abundance of ports or backlit keyboard enough to justify its high price.
