Toshiba Portégé R830 Review

maximum pc
19 November 2011
  • Excerpt: There was a time when Toshiba’s line of Portégé business ultraportables was the epitome of sleek utility, particularly in the days of the R500 and R600. Samsung stole some of that show when it released the Series 9 (reviewed here )—the closest a PC has come to a MacBook Air to date.
  • Pros: Extremely portable; great performance for the size; superb battery life.
  • Cons: Ho-hum looks; odd proprietary SSD.

  • Excerpt: It seems that whenever a new PDA phone is about to be released, there are a few who grumble about the lack of a VGA (that’s 640×480) screen. Having worked with a VGA capable PDA for a few years, I have to say that I understand the complaint.

Review Toshiba Portege R830-110 Notebook

9 June 2011
  • Summary: Low cost expert. Light, long battery life, and well put together. With the low end version of the Portégé R830 from Toshiba premium business is now affordable. The question is whether the claims of an ideal picture quality are also true?
  • Pros: Good application performance, Good battery life, Light weight, Slim case, (Stable), matte magnesium case, Optical drive, HDMI, eSATA, Docking Port, Precise multi-touchpad, Good but not perfect input devices, Sensible hardware tools, Handy with matte surfaces, and a sufficiently stable base unit.
  • Cons: System noise under load, Short travel of the keys and touchpad buttons, Weak TFT backlight, Low contrast of the display, Narrow viewing angles, The pressure point of the keys could be a bit crisper, and the travel could be more clear. Loose hinge covers definitely aren't necessary.

Toshiba Portégé R830 – X3435 Notebook Review

15 August 2011
  • Summary: The Portégé R830 is priced at Rs.85,589 (MRP) and Rs. 80,990 (MOP). It’s got the specs, but the price is quite exorbitant. The only noticeable cons in the performance were lack of a backlit keyboard and slight overheating when pushed to the max.

  • Summary: Toshiba's Portege R830 is a great choice for business users who want something that's easily mobile, yet fully-featured and fast. It's not perfect -- it could use a better screen, a backlit keyboard and a quicker charging time -- but it's very well built and it looks good, too.
  • Pros: Excellent performance and battery life, Good build quality, Plenty of built-in features
  • Cons: Keyboard not backlit, Screen not great, Long charging time

  • Conclusion: At this price, you might expect the Portege R830 to have more premium features - a backlit keyboard, an ambient light sensor, discrete graphics or a better quality screen - but then you remember it has mobile broadband, wireless display, an optical drive and a full-power Core i5 and the price seems...
  • Pros: A slim, lightweight business ultraportable that gives you full-size performance, features and battery life - and stands up to the rigours of travel
  • Cons: A slim, lightweight business ultraportable that gives you full-size performance, features and battery life - and stands up to the rigours of travel

Toshiba Portégé R830 review

20 June 2011
  • Summary: The Toshiba Portégé R830 isn't perfect. Not everyone will like the keyboard and it's not cheap, but it's stylish, well-built, has USB3 and lengthy battery life too. It's one of the best ultraportable laptops we've seen yet.
