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
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.

Pros: Akkulaufzeit, Verarbeitung, Tastatur
Cons: Display, Wärmeentwicklung, Lüfter unter Last
