Toshiba Satellite Z830


One of the lightest, best-connected and most affordable 13in Ultrabooks on the market.

Incredibly lightweight, Excellent connectivity, Affordable, Backlit keyboard, Matt screen

Design not as clean as rivals, Screen’s poor viewing angles, Mediocre keyboard

Toshiba Portege Z830


First Look: A 13in notebook that weighs just 1.11kg and is just 16mm thick? Count us in.

One area that is a bit of a let down is the touchpad, simply because it isn't of the single piece variety, as seen on Apple's laptops and the Samsung 9 and 7 Series laptops, that we've grown to like. Nonetheless, it does support multi-touch and the...

Toshiba Portege Z830-10N review


A thin-and-light Ultrabook that deserves its label

Good performance ; Thin and light ; 128GB SSD ; Batter life ; WiDi compatible

Some flex in chassis ; Bundled software

Toshiba Satellite Z830-10U review


An excellent ultraportable, but not the best you can buy

Light and slim ; Good keyboard and touchpad ; Impressive speakers ; Good performance ; Plenty of connectivity

Flimsy screen ; Too much bloatware ; Boxy design ; Quite pricey ; Matt screen will disappoint some

If you wanted a stylishly light and powerful Toshiba laptop, you would immediately look to the Japanese company's Portege R830. That is, until you came across the Toshiba Satellite Z830-10U, priced at £999 in the UK (the US price isn't yet available).

Toshiba Portégé Z830-10P review


The Toshiba Portégé Z830-10P is a business-skewed version of Toshiba's ultrabook, with relatively slow processor and Windows 7 Professional.

The Toshiba Portégé Z830 is remarkably similar to the Toshiba Satellite Z830. However, it packs less memory and has a slower processor than its sibling, resulting in slower performance but 30 mins extra battery life. The only things it offers to...

Toshiba Satellite Z830-10U review


The Toshiba Satellite Z830-10U is one of Toshiba's ultrabooks, this one aimed at a consumer audience instead of business.

The Toshiba Satellite Z830-10U costs less than the Portégé Z830-10P and has better hardware specifications. Business users will have to swallow the difference though in order to get Windows 7 Professional. For anyone else, the Satellite is the best...

Toshiba Portégé Z830-104 review


The Toshiba Z830 ultrabook is available in several versions, including the business version Toshiba Portégé Z830-104 tested here.

The Toshiba Portégé Z830-104 is an ultraportable for the travelling professional who needs their laptop lightweight and practical rather than attractive. It might look plain but it has plenty to offer if you need portage. It's a tad on the pricey side...

Toshiba Portégé Z830-104 review


Its full-size ports and backlit keyboard make Toshiba's Ultrabook stand out from the crowd, but it's not enough to make the Portégé our Ultrabook of choice

Satellite Z830-10T review


It's only 1.1kg and 16mm thick, but it has a conventional feature-set and it feels very comfortable to use.

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...

Toshiba Port?g? Z830-10N 13.3in Ultrabook


Review The last time I tested a Toshiba laptop, it had a glowing orange screen and the keyboard rattled like a box of Lego. Come to think of it, newspapers at the time were scaring readers about ‘house parties', so it was quite a while ago. So perhaps...

Despite some annoyances, I really enjoyed my time testing the Toshiba Portégé Z830. It is a good all-rounder, but so very slim and light, and it runs on batteries for the best part of a day. Surely these three features alone deserve to make it a great...
