Reviews for the Toshiba Portege R30-A-13C

60% Toshiba Portégé R30-A-13C
Source: It Pro English
There's no denying the versatility of this system thanks to its broad roster of business features, reasonable performance and impressive battery life. But several problems prevent us from giving a wholehearted recommendation. At this price, the screen is dreadful and the keyboard isn't good enough. High-quality units like the Dell Latitude 14 7000 Series and MacBook Pro are better investments.
