Reviews for the Toshiba Portege R30-A-14K

70% Toshiba Portégé R30
Source: BCW - Business Computing World English
The limited viewing angles provided by the screen are disappointing at this price, and the Portégé R30 won’t be the best choice for users who do a lot of presentations work. However, the Portégé R30 can still earn its keep for basic tasks such as Web browsing or running productivity software such as Microsoft Word and Excel.

70% Toshiba Portégé R30-A-14K review: a £900 laptop with relatively lightweight design, long-lasting battery and disappointing display
Source: PC Advisor English
The Toshiba Portégé R30-A-14K's lo-res TN display is disappointing in a laptop costing £900. However, the laptop's relatively lightweight design and long-lasting battery ensure that it could earn its keep when on the move. The hard drive's shock-protection feature and replaceable battery could also appeal to business users who need a long-life workhorse when they're out on the road, although we question the use of a slow hard disk in an expensive laptop.

13.3": This is a common display format for subnotebooks. Netbooks, UMPC and some subnotebooks have tinier displays. Nevertheless, the majority of standard laptops has a higher format. The advantage of a small display 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.


1.5 kg: This sub-notebook weighs less than the average of all notebooks and represents a medium class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 11 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
