light, good specs, but flimsy and unreliable

Gary "ikatsman", Amazon
20 February 2013
  • Summary: Though this laptop is fast, meat etc, it's flimsy: screen bezel is loose, uneven surface changes geometry and screen colors. We have several in office. 1 screen went bad in 2 weeks, my laptop shuts out of blue with critical notification "power went down" almost daily.

Cheap hinges,Fast asnd Light Weight

John R. Birutta, Amazon
20 February 2013
  • Summary: I accidentally dropped mine after owning it for only 8 months. It is an awesome machine but for the money it should have come with back lit keys! Other than that, it is fast, extremely lightweight and very sleek. When I dropped mine it came down on the male fitting at the right hinge that I had installed for an anti theft cable lock.

Toshiba R930 Impressions

Jussi, Amazon
20 February 2013
  • Summary: I have used and tested this laptop at work. I needed a light weight, system with Toshiba's excellent keyboard. I needed a laptop I could replace the O/S with our company image without needing to spend hours searching for proprietary drivers. I was not disappointed, All the drivers to create where found on Toshiba's website with a easy to navigate menu. I over-wrote the Toshiba image which came on this system. All the features worked.

Great laptop with Ubuntu 14.04

CS Professor, Amazon
31 May 2014
  • Summary: Everything good the other reviewers said is true. I bought mine used for about GBP400 and it is well worth it at that price since I nowadays always put in SSDs because of software bloat (even Linux, alas). I liked the first one so much that I bought a second one. I can't praise the keyboard enough, unlike other laptops I've bought over the last few years (my theory is that designers no longer touch-type so they design 'cool' keyboards instead).

A real computer in portable form

Russell Davidson "économètre", Amazon
12 March 2014
  • Summary: I had a Toshiba Portege for several years, and liked it very much. It was full-featured, had good battery autonomy, and was very light. It gave up the ghost recently, after having seen many different parts of the world in its lifetime. I was afraid that I would be unable to find anything comparable to replace it, with the current emphasis on netbooks and ultra-thin portables.

My first hand experience

Jayant Joy, flipkart.com
25 December 2012
  • Summary: I recently bought this laptop, I have been a Toshiba user for the last 6 years and so this is an upgrade from the one I picked up from the US. Feel The laptop looks and feels very well put together, does not have a cheap plasticky finish. It is all metal and is very light weight. Speed The laptop has the 3rd generation Core i5 processor with a 2.5GHz processor with an over clocking feature of upto 3.1 GHz (called a Turbo Boost) Weight At 1.4kg it is spot on in terms of...

  • Summary: Salve oggi vi voglio parlare di questa portatile il "Toshiba Portege R930-1PP" a mio avviso davvero un ottimo portatile in quanto monta un interessante processore intel Core i3 a 2.5 GHz , che permette l ottimo funzionamento di diversi programmi "pesanti" che io installo nel pc come ad esempio programmi che servono per modificare immagini o fare video anche perchè aiutato da un processore grafico Intel HD Graphics 4000.

  • Excerpt: На самом деле неплохой ноутбук, все перечисленные недостатки терпимы. Основная его странность в том, что он и не совсем ультрабук, и не совсем рабочая станция. Для тех, кому важно быстродействие важно, а длительность жизни от батареи не очень важна, -- наверное, подойдёт. Цена, при такой батарее, на мой взгляд, слегка завышена.
  • Pros: Мощный. Лёгкий. Хороший экран. Linux-friendly: все устройства определяются без шаманских танцев. Условно-стандартная клавиатура (типичная для всех современных ноутбуков).
  • Cons: Клавиатура жестковата, с непривычки бывает, буквы не нажимаются. Вентилятор наддува снизу-спереди-слева -- во-первых, легко экранируется (ухудшается охлаждение), во-вторых, производит довольно заметный (намерял порядка 40dB) и, что весьма неприятно, тональный шум. Фирменная тошибовская болезнь -- более чем скромный звук (кино смотреть разве что в полной тишине -- или в наушниках), и вдобавок, паразитные шумы в микрофонном тракте. Реальное время работы на батарее чуть ...
