Toshiba Portege Z830 review- there’s more to an ultrabook than looks
11 November 2013
Conclusion: Ultrabooks are still imperfect machines, but the Portege Z830 really strives to be as less mediocre as possible. With a backlit keyboard, ultra slim body and impressive selection of ports, the Z830 is one of the best equipped ultrabooks out there.
Summary: The Toshiba Portege Z830 is no complicated laptop and more than ideal for businessmen. But, if you want something with more nerve, faster CPU and generous features, there are other options on the market to consider.
Summary: Плюсы нашей новинки налицо. Это и SSDнакопитель данных, и новая технология WirelessDisplay, и несомненно стильная (с подсветкой клавиш) и водонепроницаемая клавиатура. Да и радует само наличие очень нужных для пользователя разъёмов.
Conclusion: The Toshiba Portege Z830 is the best equipped and lightest Ultrabook currently on the market. It has more ports and you won't feel like you've given up expandability for extreme portability. It's insanely light at 2.48 lbs. and very thin. In short, it's a real pleasure to carry.
Summary: A week at the CES. After publishing the comprehensive review of the German Core i5 version in December, we can now test the smaller Core i3 version thanks to Intel. In addition to numerous benchmarks, the inexpensive ultrabook also had to show how it fares in practical use at the CES 2012.
Pros: Small dimensions and weight, Matt screen, High-grade WLAN, The system performance doesn't give reason for complaint in routine use despite "weak" components.
Cons: Annoying fan noise, Wobbly and easy to warp display, Short key drop, A stable display - we have an awkward feeling every time we open the lid.
Toshiba Portege Z830/Z835 review: nice overall package, a few flaws nevertheless!

Summary: The Toshiba Z830 is the lightest and thinnest ultrabook in its class right now and manages to offer a good mix of features and performances. If it weren't for the overall fragile feel and the loud cooling system, I'd say it's a top pick, especially since the price tag is very good as well.
Pros: thin and very light, magnesium used for the whole body, decent performances, matte screen, backlit keyboard, good trackpad, lots of ports, excellent battery life, good price tag
Cons: mushy keyboard with poor feedback, annoying fan, not the best display, feels fragile, rather slow SSD
Conclusion: As much as the Toshiba Z830 is truly eye candy, it had to be capable of keeping up with our activities to be a part of our family. It arrived last Friday. We immediately configured it for our needs and headed out several hours down the road for a weekend meeting.
