Small, light, neat, but lacking the kind of sparkle that would really justify its high price, the Toshiba Portégé R830 certainly has a market, but could have garnered a larger one with a little more attention to detail.

The Toshiba Portege R830 aims to put some serious firepower at your fingertips when you're on the move. Our version of the Toshiba Portege R830, the R830-138, offers great performance and some smashing features, such as integrated mobile broadband. There's no denying that it's very expensive for a 13-inch laptop, though.

The Toshiba Portégé R830 isn't perfect. Not everyone will like the keyboard and it's not cheap, but it's stylish, well-built, has USB3 and lengthy battery life too. It's one of the best ultraportable laptops we've seen yet. Those who need the longest possible battery life should still opt for the 13in MacBook Air though, despite its ageing processor.

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.
