Reviews for the Toshiba Portégé R830-S8310

89% Toshiba Portégé R830-S8310
Source: Computer Shopper English
The laptop’s 500GB hard drive is fairly clean of bloatware. There are a few preloaded offers from Amazon, NetZero, and Skype, along with the ubiquitous 30-day trial of Norton Internet Security and the ad-supported Microsoft Office Starter 2010. Toshiba also includes a number of its own apps. Toshiba Book Place is a basic e-book reader, while Toshiba Bulletin Board is a flashy but largely useless app to organize notes and photos.

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.
