Reviews for the Toshiba Portege Z10t-A2111

79% Toshiba Portégé Z10t-A2111 Convertible Review Update | Notebookcheck
The business convertible. At a starting price of $1500, the Toshiba Z10t includes high-end hardware in a tablet form and competes directly against the Microsoft Surface models. This updated model includes mostly internal upgrades as we re-analyze the convertible's performance for the 2014 market.
40% Toshiba Portege Z10t
Source: Laptop Mag English
With its powerful components, built-in stylus and versatile keyboard dock, the Toshiba Portege Z10t has the makings of a quality Windows 8.1 hybrid. Unfortunately, its dim display, poor audio quality and uncomfortable keyboard make this hybrid difficult to recommend, especially at $1,799.

70% Toshiba Portege Z10t review: The best detachable so far (if you're into that sort of thing)
Source: PC World English
As I said in the opener, I’m not convinced the world really needs laptops with detachable displays. If you really want a notebook that can behave like a tablet, I think Lenovo has a better idea in its Yoga 2 Pro. Lenovo’s machine, on the other hand, doesn’t have an active digitizer or pen. In the end, Toshiba’s Portege Z10t is the best detachable I’ve seen, and anyone who’s sold on the detachable concept will dig it.

Comment

Model:

The Toshiba Portege Z10t-A2111 is another hybrid attempting to break the tablet market. Combining a convenient tablet form-factor that attaches to a keyboard dock instantly giving you an ultraportable laptop; this is a very good device for those of you that are constantly on the road.

The 11-inch hybrid sports a 4th-generation Intel i7 processor, 8 GB RAM and a 256 GB solid-state drive (the most expensive configuration), a powerful enough combination to handle most things you will do with it. It will boot up in less than 10 seconds and programs open up within a snap. The integrated Intel HD can handle high-definition movies and some light gaming, Its battery life will give you roughly around 6 to 8 hours, which is around the same with other laptops in its category.

It has a textured back panel so that you can get a nice grip in tablet mode. The speakers are positioned at the bottom and while it isn't the best speaker around, docking it with the keyboard might block the speakers and produce a muffled sound just like some other laptop-tablet hybrids. The keyboard doesn't have a solid look and seems rather shallow. This might affect typing comfort and speed.

Overall, most of what you pay goes to its impressive internal hardware and hybrid versatility, but it comes with what seems to be poor audio and an uncomfortable keyboard.

Intel HD Graphics 4200: Processor graphics card in some of the ULV Haswell CPUs with 20 EUs (GT2).

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.  


4610Y:

Haswell-based ULV dual-core processor clocked at 1.7 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 2.9 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4200 and a dual-channel DDR3 memory controller.

11.6":

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that 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.

1.435 kg:

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

Toshiba is one of the biggest international notebook-manufacturer. There exist many reviews for Toshiba models.

Toshiba is not present in the smartphone sector. As laptop manufacturer, Toshiba still had 6.6% of world market share in 2014. However it fell to only 1.6% in 2016, making only for the 8th place.


63%: Such a bad rating is rare. There exist hardly any notebooks, which are rated worse.
