The limited viewing angles provided by the screen are disappointing at this price, and the Portégé R30 won’t be the best choice for users who do a lot of presentations work. However, the Portégé R30 can still earn its keep for basic tasks such as Web browsing or running productivity software such as Microsoft Word and Excel.

The Toshiba Portégé R30-A-14K's lo-res TN display is disappointing in a laptop costing £900. However, the laptop's relatively lightweight design and long-lasting battery ensure that it could earn its keep when on the move. The hard drive's shock-protection feature and replaceable battery could also appeal to business users who need a long-life workhorse when they're out on the road, although we question the use of a slow hard disk in an expensive laptop.
