Summary: This is my first ultra-portable and I am overall happy with it. I am concerned about durability and battery life/replacement. I am a linux user so I am happy with the fact that Mint 13 works well with it,plus when I need Windows for some app or other, re-booting into Windows andback to Linux takes...
Pros: -Just one-half inch larger than an 8 1/2x11 note pad and not much thicker! -Back-lit key board -Ten second restart with DSDD solid state drive. -Mint 13 LTS Linux works fine on the Z830 in dual boot with Win7 that comes with. -Light weight, cool running, beautiful silver finish. - Tested out at 5...
Cons: Battery not easily replaceable w/o taking it apart. Battery life is disappointing, no touchpad disable switch, over-sensitive touchpad causes furstrations when typing: uniended input, d
Excerpt: I use this laptop for work and it is extremely lightweight and portable. I actually carry it around in my handbag (admittedly quite a large one!) rather than having to carry the heavy laptop bag that I needed for my previous computer.
Summary: I have now owned my Z830, and I have to say its the best laptop....I have 7 laptops including a Sony ultrabook , 2 acers , 3 Toshibas, and non come near to the Z series...people moan about it being flimsy...thats simply not true...its super light and the screnn is very slim but fine..
Summary: lighter than an i-Pad, quicker than a bold of lightening (I can't think of a sensible comparison), this is a brilliant little laptop that works like a dream. The processing power is good, the start-up speed (that's what we all care about really) is spot on. And the cost was pretty amazing.
Summary: I bought this after looking into the competition. The competition I considered were the Macbooks, Macbook Air, Samsung series 9 and Asus. These were all more expensive than the Toshiba. I seriously considered the Apples and Samsung series 9 because they have far better screens.
Ultrabooks are fantastic, just don't get this one!

Summary: I really like the idea of these ultra-books. Since seeing them on the TV adverts and looking up at what the critics and reviewers say about them I decided to take the plunge and buy this one, as my current laptop was getting a bit old hat.
Summary: I have now been using this beauty for approximately 2 months. I bought it for my wife, who then realised that the model I had purchased had a UK keyboard (she is Swedish and wanted a Scandinavian one!). Having seriously customised it .
Conclusion: Travelers seeking an executive-class status symbol will be tempted by Toshiba's flagship ultrabook.Yeah this ultra book have evrything you would be asking for or craving for but surely doesn't comes cheap and apart from price it have everything, Portege Z830-S8302 scores highly in performance,...
Summary: Absolutely rubbish laptop. I have now purchased the upgraded version by a different web site and its perfect condition. I kept saying to my partner whom is my oracle for computers that there was something wrong with this laptop.
