Review: Toshiba Portege Z835

Wired
1 July 2012
  • Excerpt: Expectations could not have been lower for this machine, seeing as it’s headed into that electronic dumping ground: Holiday season at big box retailers.
  • Pros: Gorgeous display, great performance, ultra-cheap price, and dazzlingly light weight. More port options than most ultrabooks. Sleek and sophisticated looks despite the plastic construction. Above-average battery life at over 5 hours.
  • Cons: More crashes than you can shake a MacBook Air at. Screen flexes ominously. Weak keyboard with ugly backlighting. Ports (almost all in the rear) are difficult to reach.

Toshiba Portege Z835-P330

PC Magazine
12 March 2012
  • Conclusion: The Toshiba Portege Z835-P330 is the lightest, longest lasting ultrabook we've seen yet, and its affordability adds sparkle to a system with moderate performance and limited graphics capability.
  • Pros: Lightest ultrabook yet. Full feature set, with extras like USB 3.0, WiDi 2.0, and full-sized HDMI. Longest battery life in the category.
  • Cons: Wimpy processing and graphics. Flimsy screen. Keyboard flexes. Small touchpad.

Toshiba Portege Z835-P370

PC Magazine
10 March 2012
  • Conclusion: Toshiba plays the value card as well as the featherweight card with its Portege Z835-P370 ultrabook.
  • Pros: As light as a 13.3-inch ultrabook gets. Plenty of ports. Backlit keyboard. 6GB of RAM for the price of competitors' 4GB.
  • Cons: Screen a little flimsy. Keyboard a little stiff. No Smart Connect technology.

Toshiba Portege Z835 Review

Digitaltrends
9 March 2012
  • Excerpt: One of the goals of the Ultrabook specification was affordability, but you wouldn’t know that by looking at the list of options currently available, nor the list of laptops soon to be released. Many models will set you back one Grover Cleveland — and that’s if you don’t pick any options. There are a couple Ultrabooks that offer a price more than a dollar below a grand, however. One of them is the Acer Aspire S3 , which we’ve already reviewed.
  • Pros: Incredibly thin and light, Great connectivity, Excellent performance, Useful bundled software
  • Cons: Drab design, Flimsy chassis, Terrible keyboard, Disappointing display and audio quality, Runs loud and warm, Expensive as-tested

Toshiba Portege Z835

Digitaltrends
9 March 2012
  • Conclusion: Toshiba’s Z835 does not make a good first impression. It’s as thin as a piece of cardboard, and feels just slightly stronger. These snap judgments about the laptop’s strength are only worsened by a sub-par keyboard and a display that isn’t sharp or beautiful. After a couple of days, the strengths of this laptop become apparent. It’s portable enough to take nearly anywhere and it’s relatively powerful, as well.
  • Pros: Incredibly thin and light, Great connectivity, Excellent performance, Useful bundled software
  • Cons: Drab design, Flimsy chassis, Terrible keyboard, Disappointing display and audio quality, Runs loud and warm, Expensive as-tested

Toshiba Satellite U845-S406

PC Magazine
8 March 2012
  • Conclusion: The Toshiba Satellite U840-S406 doesn't reinvent the wheel but is nonetheless a decent system for users looking for a well-designed, reasonably priced ultrabook for day-to-day use.
  • Pros: Full-sized HDMI port. Sleek chassis. USB 3.0 port charges peripherals when in sleep mode.
  • Cons: Battery can't be removed. Mediocre battery life. Loaded with bloatware.

Toshiba's ultrabook comes gunning for the MacBook Air with a lighter design, more ports, and a cheaper price

theverge.com
12 November 2011
  • Summary: Of all the new ultrabooks, the Portege Z835 actually comes the closest to achieving Intel’s vision. For $900, Toshiba now sells a laptop that isn’t only lighter than the MacBook Air, but has solid performance, good battery life, all the ports you could want, and decent ergonomics. It’s a very good mix of features for the price, but naturally you'll live with sacrifices for that savings.
  • Pros: Incredibly light (even lighter than the 13-Macbook Air), Backlit keyboard, Good battery life, Very competitive price
  • Cons: Not the most attractive design, Build quality could be better, Screen is washed out, Base configuration only has Core i3

Toshiba Portege Z835 Notebook Review

LAPTOP Magazine
8 November 2011
  • Summary: The Toshiba Portege Z835 is arguably the best Ultrabook yet--and certainly the best option under $1,000. For $899, you get the lightest 13-inch laptop around, full-size ports, and an accurate touchpad. The nearly 7 hours of battery life is another big plus. However, the this notebook's stiff keyboard, dull 1366 x 768 screen, and slow-writing SSD can't beat the more-expensive MacBook Air .
