Toshiba Satellite R830


This light and stylish, magnesium-clad ultra-portable laptop will make a great, affordable travelling companion for productivity-oriented individuals.

Very light (less than 1.5kg), Understated and stylish, Generous connectivity and specs, Excellent value

Mediocre screen, Keyboard feedback too shallow

Toshiba Satellite R830-143 review


If you're looking for something to travel around with that you'll use largely for working as well as playing the odd movie then the Toshiba Satellite R80-143 could be right up your street.

Toshiba’s Satellite R830-143 is the smallest of the laptops on test and if you’re after a highly portable model with excellent battery life, it’s hard to beat. Its diminutive size means that some compromises have been made, and while the screen is...

Review Toshiba Satellite R830-11C Notebook


Business Subnotebook. Toshiba has released the Satellite R830, a 13.3-inch subnotebook that could be of particular interest to business customers. The small, light laptop stands out with its stylish appearance, good battery life and built-in solid...

Matt display, Low weight, Magnesium case, Good battery life, SSD drive, USB 3.0, The slick magnesium case and the SSD. The case doesn’t just look good, it is also very robust and resistant to fingerprints. The SSD makes for a fast-running system

Battery recharges slowly, High price, Some noise from the SSD, A cooling system that would turn the fan off completely in idle. Then the notebook would be almost silent when idle, with there being no conventional hard drive

Compare the stats of this computer to the portege r700 and that says it all. It is the same size, weight, looks the same, has very similar performance stats, and most importantly is 300 cheaper. If you look at the Gadget show it places the r700 in...

I already have a iMac which I use for my multimedia needs so I do not use this computer for watching movies. If you intend to use it for those purposes, I would suggest you splash out on a Macbook Pro. Remember you are paying for portability. If you...

Toshiba Satellite R830-182


Light, powerful for it's size. Has a disc drive (not that I ever use it). Handles HD editing (such as footage from my Headcam and Micro 3/4 Camera with ease). Long power cable. Comfortable typing. For an inexpensive portable machine this is fab! I got...

The power lead plug in to the laptop often comes loose especially if you have it on your lap (and then you are not charging) so the fit could be a bit snugger. For an inexpensive portable machine this is fab! I got this at a good deal as end of range...

Toshiba Satellite R830-143


really lightweight and includes a DVD drive - unusual in the new ultrabooks. I really like the combination SATA/USB drive - makes the model all the more adaptable. This model was discounted at PCWorld (presumably ahead of a new version) and offers...

Toshiba Satellite R830-143


Lightweight, long battery life, quick

Too many Toshiba utility programs, most of which I haven't even used. Wireless connection a bit flakey, not as sensitive as other systems and not as user friendly
