Reviews for the Toshiba Satellite R830-143

90% Make no compromises: Toshiba Portege R830 review
Source: APC Mag English
Weighing just 1.46kg and with slim dimensions (18.3 x 316 x 227mm), the R830 also has an HDMI port and could be considered an alternative to a MacBook Air or Samsung Series 9. But it still comes with business features such as its sharing recovery disks with other models in the Portege range. In short, one of the best business notebooks yet.

Toshiba’s Satellite R830-143 is the smallest of the laptops on test and if you’re after a highly portable model with excellent battery life, it’s hard to beat. Its diminutive size means that some compromises have been made, and while the screen is good, colours are slightly dull when viewing photographs and videos.

Considering its affordable price, the magnesium-clad Toshiba Satellite R830-143 will make a great travelling companion for productivity-oriented individuals looking for a stylish and light 13.3in laptop that doesn't compromise on power or features. Only its mediocre screen and shallow keyboard preclude it from a wholehearted recommendation.

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.
