Reviews for the Toshiba Portege Z30-A1301

80% Toshiba Portege Z30-A1301

The Toshiba Portege Z30-A1301 offers a solid business ultrabook that's light enough to take anywhere, long-lasting enough to take you through a full workday (plus overtime), and offers all of the ports and connectors you might want. While it doesn't take the top spot from the Editors' Choice Dell Latitude e7440 Touch (which offers slightly better performance overall), it is a less expensive alternative, and you even have the option of getting it with Windows 7.

We've watched over the last year or two as mainstay business laptops gradually inch closer in design to their ultrabook competitors. This business-oriented ultrabook is well-built, thin, light, and comfortable to use. The latest "Haswell" CPU makes it fast, but a low-resolution screen diminishes its overall value.

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.


1.2 kg: This subnotebook is one of the most lightweight of all notebooks and can be carried very easily. There exist hardly any models in this extreme class of weight. 7-9 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.

The company's main business is in Infrastructure, Consumer Products, and Electronic devices and components. Toshiba-made Semiconductors are among the Worldwide Top 20 Semiconductor Sales Leaders.
