Reviews for the Toshiba Portege Z935-P300
The Toshiba Portege Z930 series is a textbook example of a mainstream ultrabook. It's thin, it's light, its battery life is very good, and the entry-point model I tested, the Z935-P300, has enough processing performance for normal everyday computing.The Toshiba Portege Z935-P300 is an excellent ultrabook value if you can overlook its few design shortcomings.

The Toshiba Portégé Z935 Ultrabook gets a solid 2.5-star rating. For some business users, such as those who go to a lot of meetings and make basic presentations, it will be a pretty good laptop. After all, it’s lightweight, is a solid overall performer, and has several nice hookup options, including VGA and HDMI, as well as WiDi and Bluetooth. For other business users—those who travel often and want to get work done on the fly—the Portégé Z935 is a poor choice. The keyboard and trackpad definitely need some work, and the overall construction doesn’t seem very sturdy. Plus, multimedia performance is pretty weak, even for the ultraportable category.

The Toshiba Portege Z935-P300 is an Ultrabook to be reckoned with. Like last year's version, it's super-light at 2.4 pounds, but a stronger performer, thanks to the combination of a third-gen Intel Core processor and faster SSD. We just wish the keyboard offered a bit more travel and that Toshiba offered a higher-resolution display. Overall, though, the Z935's design, port selection and speed earns it high marks.

The Toshiba Portege Z935-P300 approaches the ideal for ultrabooks. It's very thin, very light, has decent performance, and has very good battery life. While other 13-inch ultrabooks like the Asus Zenbook Prime UX31A-R5102F come with a higher-resolution screen, less critical users willing to trade a higher res screen for some real savings won't mind. The Z935-P300 also has better battery life than the Asus UX31A-R5102F. The HP Folio 13-1020us has better battery life still, but the components in the newer crop of ultrabooks like the Z935-P300 has surpassed the HP 13-1020us' now dated hardware. Power, low weight, comfortable interfaces, battery life, and a whole slew of user-friendly features means that the Toshiba Portege Z935-P300 is our new Editors' Choice for mainstream utlrabooks.

For those that want the lightest 13-inch laptop they can get, they don't get any lighter than the two and a half pound Toshiba Portege Z935. Even with this low weight, the ultrabook offers some of the best running times available and has a very reasonable price tag. Of course, the design of the system is rather dated with its boxy look and the lighter weight does make it feel more flimsy.
