Toshiba Portege R705 Review

Digitaltrends
18 January 2011
  • Excerpt: Before there were netbooks, Adamos , Timelines or even a MacBook Air , there was the Portege. Toshiba’s long-standing marquee for ultraportable notebooks never achieved the prominence of many of its more fashionable contemporaries, but the business-styled portable has always pressed the bounds of technology. Back in 2007, the Portege R500 actually took the title of the “world’s thinnest notebook with an optical drive.
  • Pros: Thin and light, Sturdy, stylish magnesium chassis, Standard optical drive, Comfortable supersized touchpad, firm keyboard, Capable Core i5 processor, Sharp 13.3-inch screen, Surprisingly loud speakers, Affordable price point
  • Cons: Lacks biz staples like keyboard light, 180-degree hinges, Some intrusive preinstalled utilities, Reflective screen, Not enough grunt for all 1080p playback

  • Conclusion: Business up front, party in the back. It’s an apt description for the R705, but throwing it in with mullets just feels wrong, so let’s call it a solid pair of khakis instead. Sharp at work, comfortable at play, and affordable enough for everyone. With the R705, Toshiba succeeds at bringing the build quality, power and no-nonsense styling of machines formerly reserved for business elites down to the masses, without clipping the essentials.
  • Pros: Thin and light, Sturdy, stylish magnesium chassis, Standard optical drive, Comfortable supersized touchpad, firm keyboard, Capable Core i5 processor, Sharp 13.3-inch screen, Surprisingly loud speakers, Affordable price point

  • Summary: The Toshiba Portege R705 is as close to a perfect balance of design, price, and performance as you'll find in a Windows laptop.
  • Pros: Slim, upscale design; excellent keyboard and touch pad; includes Intel Wireless Display and built-in 4G wireless; solid value.
  • Cons: Missing dedicated graphics and Bluetooth; battery life merely average.
