Summary: Ultra-slim business. Striking looks, low weight, long runtimes and first-rate connections. Sounds like the perfect business qualities. However, there are shortcomings in details. Why is the premium claim not met?
Pros: Very lightweight, Solid base unit, Matte surfaces, Rear-sided ports, High application performance, Very swift SSD, 100% performance on battery power, Usually quiet fan, Low heat dissipation, Bright, matte screen, The low weight and the base unit's stiffness. The pliable lid is not distracting in routine use, but its flexibility is a kind of crumple zone.
Cons: Tight viewing angle, Non-removable battery, Weak typing feedback, Virtually inexistent mouse key drop, No docking port, Input devices are the most crucial elements in business. However, the build prevents a longer key drop for better feedback. The virtually unusable mouse buttons (almost no drop) is however an impertinence in this price range.
Summary: The Toshiba Portege Z930 is priced at Rs. 96,000 here in India. It’s not necessarily the sturdiest of Ultrabooks, but it is one of the lighest. So if you’re travelling a lot and need something light and reasonably powerful, then this has to be it. Of course, you sacrifice some of the other things like a sturdy frame and a bit of ergonomics and aesthetics.
Summary: Toshiba's Z930-108 could make a good choice as a portable business laptop. It's thin, extremely light and has good build quality. Features are abundant and it’s a fast performer too. But the Z930-108 doesn't quite deserve the ultimate business laptop title, so long as the Acer TravelMate P6 can run half as long again from its internal battery.
