Reviews for the Toshiba Satellite R630-141

80% Toshiba Satellite R630-141
Source: Computer Active English
The Toshiba Satellite R630-141 (there's more than one R630 model available but this is the most powerful) borrows its design from a business-minded cousin, the Portege R700. It is slim and sleek, with a black finish that makes it rather pleasant to the eye. Overall, the Satellite R630-141 is a well-made laptop that works well and is powerful but portable.

While the Satellite R630-141 is beaten by the stronger specification and graphics of the Asus U53Jc Bamboo and Sony Vaio VPCEC3S0E/WI, this is still one of the best ultra-portables you can buy. Offering stunning power and mobility at a fairly low price, we would be more than happy to have one in our bag next time we hit the road.

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.


1.5 kg: This sub-notebook weighs less than the average of all notebooks and represents a medium class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 11 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
