Toshiba Satellite Z830

CNET
19 November 2012
  • Summary: The Toshiba Satellite Z830 may be slim and light, but it fails to beat its ultrabook competitors in power, build quality and battery life. Your £1,000 would be better spent elsewhere.
  • Cons: Chassis seems very weak; unimpressive screen; less powerful than similarly priced competitors.

Review Toshiba Satellite Z830-10J Ultrabook

Notebookcheck
14 December 2011
  • Summary: Light as a feather. The power of a big notebook, but as light as a netbook. The Z830, as Toshiba's first ultrabook, presents itself with good battery runtimes and outdoor suitability. Where is the device positioned in comparison to the ultrabook competition from Asus, Acer, Lenovo and co.? Find all details here in this review.
  • Pros: Extremely light for 13.3 inches, Rigid within the realms of what's possible, Fingerprint resistant surfaces, Comparatively many ports, Many ports at the rear, Good keyboard, High application performance, Full performance on battery power possible, Low heat dissipation, Is light and acceptably solid or heavy(-ier) and as stiff as a board preferable? The difference in build is tremendous compared with the Asus UX31 (13.3 inch, 1300 grams). However, both approaches will ...
  • Cons: Permanently audible fan, No docking option, Weak colors, viewing angles on the TFT, Built-in battery, Moderate battery life, Stiff mouse keys, Free-fall test: passed. Pressure test: passed. Spill test: passed. - But what about the noise test? Do Toshiba's product developers not listen to the noise development? There's need for improvement here. No other ultrabook has come up with a disturbing fan until now.

  • Excerpt: The way we hoped Ultrabooks would materialise when we first heard about them is about as close as Toshiba has gotten with its design of the 13.3in Satellite Z830. It's a magnificent piece of work that fits necessary ports and slots into an almost impossibly thin and light chassis, a chassis that also houses speedy enough components to make everyday computing tasks a breeze.

Review: Toshiba Satellite Z830 Ultrabook

Canadian Reviewer
2 March 2012
  • Excerpt: Few companies have been making notebooks longer than Toshiba and have managed to retain their identity and unique style. With its Satellite Z830, Toshiba meets the Ultrabook challenge head on with a 2.47 pound and 0.63-inch sliverbook that's well rounded and impressively outfitted and that doesn't rip off the MacBook Air's look and feel.

  • Excerpt: On the face of it, the Toshiba Satellite Z830-10U is identical to the Toshiba Portégé Z830-10P . On closer inspection there are some tiny differences to be found save other than the small 'Satellite' logo at the bottom left-hand edge of the keyboard.
