Reviews for the Toshiba Portégé R830-S8310
Source: Computer Shopper
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.
