Reviews for the Toshiba Portege A30T-C1340
Source: Computer Shopper Archive.org version
Sensible purchases are rarely all that exciting, and so it goes with the Toshiba Portege A30t-C1340. The value proposition here is that it’s a business-class laptop on a consumer budget—albeit $930 being at the high end of the scale of what home consumers are used to seeing these days.

Toshiba markets the Portege A30t as a business system, but the product lacks several key features that both IT departments and productivity workers want, including vPro manageability, MIL-STD 810G durability and a comfortable keyboard. Both corporate and home users will be disappointed by the laptop's below-average battery life.

There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.
The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
