Review Toshiba Portégé Z30-A-12U Notebook

Notebookcheck
2 January 2014
  • Summary: Marathon runner in business attire. A slim and extremely light magnesium case makes the Toshiba Portégé Z30 one of the most mobile notebooks of its range. The lavishly equipped 13-inch laptop further scores with long battery runtimes and great performance - but is this enough to justify the expensive price of almost 1,500 Euros (~$2038)?
  • Pros: Light magnesium case, Thorough workmanship, Docking-station port, Good input devices, Matte and bright display, High application performance, Long battery runtimes, A compact, light and powerful device, the Portégé is the optimal everyday companion for everyone that needs to have their business device always on hand. But it also cuts a good figure on the desk due to its optional docking-station.
  • Cons: No WWAN module, Missing DisplayPort, Loud under full load, Viewing angle dependent TN panel, Only 12-month warranty, High price, Minor improvements such as a high-grade IPS panel or a more sturdy keyboard would have given the notebook the last touch, which we missed on some occasions. However, the manufacturer did not make any grave blunders.

Expert Review

ComputerShopper
19 December 2013
  • Conclusion: Then too, there's the 10-hour battery life, a three-year limited warranty, excellent keyboard and pointing stick, and strong performance that place this Portege in direct competition with Lenovo's ThinkPad line, including our Editors' Choice of a few months ago, the ThinkPad Edge E431. The Portege Z30 is thinner, lighter, performs better, and has a much longer battery life, making it our new favorite business-oriented ultrabook.
  • Pros: Thin, light, and easy to hold, Comfortable keyboard and touch pad, Durable magnesium alloy construction, Strong performance and battery life, DTS sound system, Ample expansion options, Fingerprint reader, Useful utilities and apps
  • Cons: Low-resolution, lackluster screen

Toshiba Portégé Z30-A-12X

Techzine
3 April 2014
  • Conclusion: De Toshiba Portégé Z30-A is in veel opzichten een net systeem voor de zakelijke gebruiker. Het uiterlijk is lekker neutraal en aan veel zakelijke toepassingen is ook gedacht. Hierbij doel ik bijvoorbeeld op de brede mogelijkheden om de gebruiker te verifiëren, de toevoeging van een pointing stick, een goede accuduur en een scherm dat ook met veel tegenlicht prima is af te lezen. De mogelijkheid om te kiezen tussen Windows 7 of Windows 8.1 is natuurlijk ook erg prettig.
  • Pros: Keuze uit Windows 7 of Windows 8.1;, Veel mogelijkheden om veilig in te loggen;, Veel aansluitingen;, SSD presteert zeer goed;, Scherm ook met tegenlicht goed te lezen;, Behuizing van magnesium..
  • Cons: ..maar stevigheid van scherm stelt teleur;, Lage schermresolutie;

Breve Análise do Portátil Toshiba Portégé Z30-A-12U

Notebookcheck
4 February 2014
  • Excerpt: Corredor de maratona em trajes de negócios. Um fino e extremamente leve case de magnésio faz com que o Toshiba Portégé Z30 seja um dos portáteis mais móveis de sua gama. O generosamente equipado portátil de 13 polegadas ganha pontos com a longa duração da bateria e ótimo desempenho – mas será que isto é suficiente para justificar o alto preço de quase 1.500 Euros (~$2038)?

  • Excerpt: Profesyonel görünmlü maraton koşucusu. İnce ve oldukça hafif magnezum kasa Toshiba Portege Z30 modelini bulunduğu segmentteki en mobil notebooklardan biri yapıyor. 13.3 inçlik laptop batarya kullanım süreleri ve harika performansıyla da ek puanlar topluyor. Peki bu laptop 1500 Avroluk çıkış fiyatının karşılığını veriyor mu?

  • Conclusion: Компактные размеры, долгая работа от батареи - вот главные положительные черты Portege Z30. Неплохая производительность также придется по вкусу многим покупателям, в отличие от скромного дисплея с морально устаревшим разрешением. Но наше впечатление в целом остается положительным. Данное устройство вполне заслуживает рекомендации к покупке.
