Reviews for the Toshiba Portégé Z830-10N
A week at the CES. After publishing the comprehensive review of the German Core i5 version in December, we can now test the smaller Core i3 version thanks to Intel. In addition to numerous benchmarks, the inexpensive ultrabook also had to show how it fares in practical use at the CES 2012.

If display quality isn’t that important to you, we really have to admit that we’re thrilled with Toshiba’s Portege Z830, which is remarkable product with only a few drawbacks. Many, many details have been taken care of, but there’s still room for improvement, and we hope that the following model will patch up these few flaws, however insignificant they may seem. Simply put, Z830 does so many things well that it’s just impossible to draw down the overall impression by a few negative remarks here and there.

As Toshiba's first Ultrabook, the Z830 is an excellent computer, booting quickly and performing well. Our main gripe is the slightly flimsy lid. The Z830 certainly fits the thin-and-light requirements of Ultrabooks though, and its plain styling could make it an Ultrabook of choice for business users.

Despite some annoyances, I really enjoyed my time testing the Toshiba Portégé Z830. It is a good all-rounder, but so very slim and light, and it runs on batteries for the best part of a day. Surely these three features alone deserve to make it a great success. It’s not a style icon by any stretch of the imagination, but this Ultrabook looks businesslike in an understated way and genuinely feels like a quality piece of kit. It is jolly expensive, though.

The Toshiba Portégé Z830 is a very neat, slim, small ultrabook. We think the lid section should be more solid, but the battery life is good. You will need to decide though, whether the 128GB SSD offers enough storage.
