Reviews for the Toshiba Portégé R830-10Q

83% Toshiba Portege R830 (Core i7-2620M 2.7GHz) - It Just Keeps On Going
Source: Hardware Zone English
The Toshiba Portege R830 is a breed of laptops that is getting increasingly rarer by the day. Manufacturers are slowly getting rid of the optical drive, one way or the other to cut down on size and weight, giving us essentially what we call Ultrabooks. The R830 however, is not an Ultrabook. It doesn’t have many of the attributes that defines an Ultrabook, like a Low-Voltage-Processor, low cost, or even an SSD.

Although it's an expensive machine, it's more than capable with generous processor and memory specifications. We love the hardware, which is both tough and stylish, and we think it's a laptop we'd be very happy using for several years to come.

Intel HD Graphics 3000: Integrated graphics card in the Intel Sandy Bridge processors (Core ix-2xxx). The HD 3000 is the faster (internally GT2 called) version with 12 Execution Units (EUs).

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

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.  


2620M: Very fast Dual-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


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.
