Small but marvelous

  • 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. Recommended to me by a company CIO who uses it for work, you won't be disappointed.

Fast bootup, lightweight, but horrid screen...

  • 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. Many other laptops and ultrabooks were excluded because of their weight. I wanted a very light laptop which this is.

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. As a rule I don't have much to do with Toshiba, in the sense I don't have many of their products, but I have understood that there products are usually good on the hole.

Dog's Bo***cks

  • 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 ..and having had the opportunity to play with it, I was loath to return it. I commute 2000 miles weekly and humping a 2.5kg standard laptop is just a no go.

Hard drive stopped working 2nd week.

  • 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. First it was mega slow, then windows crashed and finally the hard drive completely packed in and died. Contacted Amazon for no stock to be left, which now I'm thankful for as I purchased an upgrade for a cheaper price which is fab.

Excellent laptop but ...

Mrs L "HL", Amazon

  • Summary: Excellent product (I've always sworn by Toshiba). Love the matte screen! Love the backlit keyboard too. One important point to note, and this is something I really feel ought to be part of the standard product information for devices nowadays: The operating system takes 30 GB of the already-too-little SSD space of 128 GB. So BE AWARE! You only have 97GB left for all your software and files!

How an Ultrabook should be

jtcoops, Amazon
6 April 2012
  • Summary: There is no shortage of Ultrabooks on the market, all trying to be the Macbook Air. Toshiba have been a little different with the Z830 - for a start its not silver/aluminium in colour, and secondly it is much lighter than anything else on the market. I was a bit concerned having read concerns about the noisy fan and flimsey screen but I trust Toshiba having been a fan of their laptops for a while so bought the Z830 without playing with one first, mainly because no high...
