Toshiba Portege Z830

MobileTechReview.com
8 February 2012
  • 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.
  • Pros: Very light and thin, lots of ports.
  • Cons: Display flex, shallow keyboard.

Practical Test: Toshiba Portégé Z830-10N (Core i3) Notebook

Notebookcheck
4 February 2012
  • 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.

PC Magazine
18 January 2012
  • Conclusion: The Toshiba Portege Z830-S8302 is a slim, speedy ultrabook that may be a little too light and too pricey for mass appeal.

  • Cons: Expensive. Wobbly screen. Finicky keyboard. Non-removable battery.

Toshiba Portege Z830/Z835 review: nice overall package, a few flaws nevertheless!

UltrabookReview
3 January 2012
  • 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

Toshiba Portege Z830 Ultrabook Review

Tech2
4 September 2012
  • Summary: Holding the ‘world’s lightest’ Ultrabook title does come at a price. The Z830 will set you back a whopping Rs.96,290, which makes it expensive. More so, because you can easily get an Ultrabook at this price with a Core i7 CPU and a larger SSD, but, you will have to sacrifice on some of the features...

Toshiba Portege Z830 ultrabook review

wired.co.uk
27 March 2012
  • Conclusion: The Toshiba Portege Z830 is a beautifully thin and lightweight package that fits Intel's ultrabook description (thin, fast, light, affordable) in all aspects but the price, which is very much in the premium category.

Toshiba Satellite Z830 ultrabook

THE INQUIRER
17 January 2012
  • Conclusion: The Toshiba Z830 ultrabook is a nice laptop that stands out for its portability and great connectivity. It's nice to use on a regular basis but doesn't have the wow factor or optional hardware that we expect to see in this class of notebook. In our eyes the Asus Zenbook is a better option. µ

Toshiba Satellite Z830 review: An Ultrabook that's only 1.1kg and 16mm thick, yet well featured and user friendly

Good Gear Guide.au
20 November 2011
  • Conclusion: If you want to buy an Ultrabook, then buy this one. It's only 1.1kg and 16mm thick, but it has a conventional feature-set and it feels very comfortable to use. We enjoyed reviewing it very much, more so than the models from Acer and ASUS.
  • Pros: Design, Features, Backlit keyboard
  • Cons: Screen's viewing angles, Touchpad buttons, Sharp chassis corners
