Reviews for the Toshiba Portégé M700

70% Toshiba M700-110 review

This earnest laptop is a jack of many trades, with a good selection of features and relatively impressive battery life for untethered productivity. The price premium over a comparably specified regular laptop will be a good investment if you need a versatile laptop-cum-tablet that works well in either guise.

Although its tablet PC lineup may not be as impressive as Fujitsu 's, Toshiba has put together a solid and diverse array of convertible tablets over the past several years. The Toshiba Portégé M700-S7002 ($1,799 direct) is a convertible tablet that competes with the Fujitsu LifeBook T4000 Series and the ASUS R1, offering a wide selection of bred-for-performance, standard-voltage processors. This convertible tablet has the processing capability and an optical drive to maintain productivity at a high level.

Priced at $1,799, the Toshiba Portégé M700-S7002 is a very good choice for road warriors who demand power, portability, and the flexibility of having both touch and pen input. Although it’s a bit on the thick side, the M700-S7002 is a top-notch performer that can stand up to business travelers.

There's no denying that the Portégé M700 is well specified and that Toshiba has priced it competitively for a fully featured Tablet device. However, it's bigger and heavier then most 12.1in notebooks, and it lacks the solid build quality of the business behemoth that is the Lenovo ThinkPad. The keyboard is particularly disappointing, but if you're planning to use it mostly in Tablet mode, that probably won't bother you. There's not much that's intrinsically wrong with the M700, but there's nothing that stands out as particularly good either. This latest Portégé definitely hasn't convinced me of the merits of Tablet computing, but to be fair to Toshiba, I doubt that anything could.

Although 2kg isn’t heavy for a laptop when carried in a shoulder bag, actually holding it in your hands is a different matter and, after 15 minutes or so, you’ll most likely be struggling. Combine this with the premium you’re paying for the tablet design and alternatives such as ultraportable laptops or UMPCs start to look more attractive.

Not only does this fail to compete with the best tablets in its price range, but it is also too expensive for those who would only occasionally spin the screen and hide the keyboard. Attractive to look at, but too expensive for occasional tablet use and not good enough to compete with the best dedicated devices.

Comment

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) X3100: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) X3100 is an integrated (onboard) graphic chip on a Mobile Intel 965GM chipset. It is the successor of GMA 950 and features a fully programmable pipeline (supports Aero Glass fully and DirectX 10 with newest drivers). The peformance of the X3100 is clearly better than the GMA 950, still demanding modern games won't run fluently.

These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Core 2 Duo: This is the Core Duo and Core Solo successor with a longer pipeline and 5-20% more speed without more power consumption. As an addition to the Core Duo design there exists a fourth decoder, an amplified SSE-unit and an additional arithmetical logical unit (ALU).

The Core 2 Duo for laptops is identical to the desktop Core 2 Duo processors but the notebook-processors work with lower voltages (0.95 to 1188 Volt) and a lower Frontside bus clock (1066 vs 667 MHz). The performance of equally clocked notebooks is 20-25% lower than Desktop PCs because of the lower Frontside bus clock and the slower hard disks.


T7500:

The Core 2 Duo T7500 is a Merom based Core 2 Duo with 4MB Level 2 Cache. It is positioned in the middle class (in 2009) and performs on par with a modern P7550 or Turion II Ultra M640/M660.

12.1": This is a common display format for subnotebooks. Most netbooks have a tinier display. The advantage is, that the subnotebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes, especially with high resolutions.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2 kg: These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 12 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.


Toshiba: Toshiba Corporation is a multinational conglomerate manufacturing company, headquartered in Japan. The company's main business is in Infrastructure, Consumer Products, and Electronic devices and components. Toshiba-made Semiconductors are among the Worldwide Top 20 Semiconductor Sales Leaders. Toshiba is one of the biggest international notebook-manufacturer. There exist many reviews for Toshiba models.
