Toshiba Portege R835

CNET
19 April 2014
  • Summary: This one-time favorite is still an excellent go-to 13-inch laptop, if you don't need something quite as slim as an ultrabook, and you can get it for the right price.
  • Cons: This 13-inch laptop once felt thin and light, but similarly priced newer laptops beat it on style and portability.

Notebookcheck
19 June 2012
  • Summary: Affordable Thin-and-Light. The lightweight Portégé series will be refreshed this year as the all-new Ivy Bridge R930 series, but does the Sandy Bridge R830 series still have some life left in it?
  • Pros: Great CPU performance, Stable base, Easily accessible ports and expandability, Optical drive, Both USB 3.0 and eSATA, Precise multi-touch touchpad, Fast CPU performance and stable base. The all-around matte surfaces prevent fingerprints from easily building up.
  • Cons: High surface temperatures, High system noise, Weak lid, Narrow viewing angles, Low contrast, Poor outdoor usability/ Glossy screen, Average battery life, Spongy keyboard, Throttles when under very high loads, Improved lid stability for better resistance to pressure and twisting. A brighter screen with a matte option would allow for better visibility when outdoors. Finally, a more able cooling solution to prevent throttling, high noise and high temperatures would go a ...

Toshiba Portege R835: Less Ultra, More Notebook

AnandTech
30 March 2012
  • Conclusion: When Toshiba released the Portege R700 in 2010, it came out of nowhere. We didn't have ultrabooks on the market, and nobody was expecting a design like that from Toshiba of all companies. The design served them well, and they extended that design language to respectable notebooks like their Tecra R840 and R850 lines.

Toshiba Portege R835 Review

10 December 2011
  • Conclusion: The Portege R835 is truly a standout in the 13.3” screen laptop class, you get so much for the money which explains why this model has been selling like hotcakes.  I can’t think of any other 13.3” laptop that uses a metallic body, has 8 hours of battery life, built-in optical drive and Core i5 processor that can be found in the $700 range .

24 August 2011
  • Conclusion: For those who’s wallets or will power just can’t manage to break the $1000.00 marker for a quality 13.3 inch laptop, the Portege R850 is a terrific choice. If you’re just looking for a way to achieve optimum personal computing without the extra strength needed for advanced gaming or content creation there isn’t a better option on the market.

Expert Review

ComputerShopper
8 April 2011
  • Conclusion: The Portégé R835-P56X might not have the best keyboard or speakers, but its stellar application performance, long-lasting battery, and decent 3D-graphics performance—all for under $1,000—outweigh these caveats and make it one of the best values you’re going to find for an ultraportable. Making it even more appealing is its impressive feature set, highlighted by its optical drive, sturdy construction, WiDi technology, and USB 3.0 support.
  • Pros: Excellent speed, battery life, Decent 3D graphics, Optical drive, Sturdy build
  • Cons: Disappointing keyboard, speakers, Vent on side blows very hot air, No Bluetooth

LAPTOP Magazine
30 March 2011
  • Summary: We liked but didn't love the last Toshiba Portege because it ran a little hot and we experienced some problems with the touchpad. Toshiba has addressed those issues with the Portege R835-P56X. The company also beefed up the graphics performance while maintaining more than 6 hours of battery life--without ballooning the price.
  • Pros: Much improved graphics, More than 6 hours of battery life, Built-in WiDi 2.0 technology, Large accurate touchpad, Runs cooler than predecessor, Lightweight design with DVD drive
  • Cons: Small keys, Below-average Wi-Fi performance, Annoying software pop-ups

  • Summary: This one-time favorite is still an excellent go-to 13-inch laptop, if you don't need something quite as slim as an ultrabook, and you can get it for the right price.
  • Pros: This latest version of the Toshiba Portege R835 is still a great value, packing a big hard drive, optical drive, and full-power processor into a chassis not much bigger than an ultrabook.
  • Cons: This 13-inch laptop once felt thin and light, but similarly priced newer laptops beat it on style and portability.
