Reviews for the Toshiba Portege R30-A-17R
The Toshiba Portegé R30 is ultimately recommendable over competing Ultrabooks only in certain situations. Its potential for high performance is a major selling point; unlike Ultrabooks, the R30 uses socketed full wattage Intel processors up to the i7 quad-core which is impressive considering its small 13.3″ chassis. Our review unit was the minimum configuration with only 4GB of RAM and a slow 500GB hard drive but Toshiba offers it with up to 16GB of RAM and a much faster mSATA SSD. We also noted the R30’s strong chassis, magnesium alloy build materials, built-in optical drive, docking station support, functional keyboard layout and great tracking stick.
