Reviews for the Toshiba Portégé R705-P40

80% Toshiba Portege R705 Review
Source: Digital Trends English Archive.org version

Business up front, party in the back. It’s an apt description for the R705, but throwing it in with mullets just feels wrong, so let’s call it a solid pair of khakis instead. Sharp at work, comfortable at play, and affordable enough for everyone. With the R705, Toshiba succeeds at bringing the build quality, power and no-nonsense styling of machines formerly reserved for business elites down to the masses, without clipping the essentials.

Toshiba's Portégé R705 13.3" Ultraportable Notebook
Source: Hot Hardware English Archive.org version

In our tests, the Toshiba Portégé R705 stacked up nicely against the competition.  In our general desktop workloads, as well as gaming/multi-media benchmarks, it was shining even brighter. Our $929.99 configuration managed to beat our expectations from a performance standpoint, with even the Intel HD integrated graphics core performing better than expected, all things considered. On a 13.3" ultraportable that's as mobile as this machine, you generally don't expect to do a lot multimedia muscle.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) HD Graphics: Onboard graphics card that is built in the new Arrandale CPUs (Core i3 / i5 / i7 Dual Cores). Depending on the model and Turbo Boost, the GMA HD is clocked between 166 and 766 MHz.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

460M: The Core i5-460M has only 3 MB L3 Cache (compared to the I7-620M) and clocks between 2.53-2.8 GHz (Turbo Mode). Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (GMA HD) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

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.

Toshiba: Toshiba Corporation is a Japanese conglomerate or technology group. The company was established in 1939 and in 1978 Toshiba became the official company name.

Toshiba was one of the largest manufacturers of personal computers, consumer electronics, home appliances and medical equipment.


80%: This rating is not earth-shattering. This rating must actually be seen as average, since there are about as many devices with worse ratings as better ones. A purchase recommendation can only be seen with a lot of goodwill, unless it is about websites that generally rate strictly.
