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...its super fast, boot up time amazing, super backlit keys.....sony dont have that, I had to replace a fan...very easy job take s a few minutes and only cost £17...
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.
Excerpt: The laptops I have had in the past have been bulky and awkward to carry around, and quite heavy. When I saw the Toshiba Portege Z830-12D, I fell in love with its size. Its very light, nearly half the size of an average laptop, its just perfect, for carrying around, I just slip it in my bag, it does not weigh down my bag, you would not even know I had a laptop in my bag. Its a bit pricey, but definitely value for money.
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.
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, practicality, and sheer sex appeal.
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...
Excerpt: Покупался больше года назад как альтернатива mac book air. Очень хотелось такой же тонкий и легкий ноутбук, но не с ios (на работе винда, и не хотелось кадый вечер переключать мозг для другой системы). Приоритетом был именно неблольшой вес при нормальном размере экрана и хорошей мощности. А во время покупки Toshiba Portege z830 был самым легким ультрабуком. Ноутбук ожидания оправдал: он совершенно невесом.
Pros: быстрый, мощный, очень легкий, клавиатура удобная и с подсветкой, матовый экран
Cons: разрешение экрана, маленький угол обзора, дизайн так себе
Excerpt: Ультрабуки атакуют нас ))) Классная модель. Очень тонкий, но прочный корпус, малый вес, энергоемкая батарея, позволяюте его брать с собой постоянно! За счёт легкого веса его не ощущаешь в рюкзаке. ЗА счёт малых размером он не мешает тебе. А за счёт большой батареи можно работать часами на нем, где бы ты ни был! Модель отличная получилась!!!!
