Reviews for the Toshiba Portege R30-A1302

70% Toshiba Portege R30-A1302
Source: PC Mag English
The Toshiba Portege R30-A1302's appeal lies in the familiarity of its design and features. It has lots of legacy tech, like ExpressCard, VGA, and a DVD burner, in a chassis design that won't confuse veteran users in your organization. But its $1,600 price tag is similar to that of ultrabooks and other ultraportables that have a higher-resolution touch screen, like the Lenovo X1 Carbon and Dell e7440 Touch. That same price can also get you an ultraportable with a better battery life, like the Editors' Choice Apple MacBook Pro 13-inch.

Intel HD Graphics 4600:

Integrated processor graphics card found on a number of Haswell CPU models. Offers varying clock speeds depending on the CPU.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

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


Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  


4600M:

Haswell-based dual-core processor clocked at 2.9 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.6 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4600 GPU and a dual-channel DDR3 memory controller.

13.3":

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

1.5 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.
