Reviews for the Toshiba Portege X30-D-123
Source: Tech Smart
WIth all this said, I have to come back to what I think is the X30’s biggest strength - its lightness. For business trips, and for travellers watching their weight, including it as a companion is a complete no brainer. Its high end productivity performance, along with superlative portability, make it a winner for business users and travellers in particular. The Portégé X30 has a RRP starting from R19 000 and is available as of this month.

The Toshiba Portégé X30-D doesn't come cheap, especially if you want a touchscreen, access to a good-sized SSD, and a Core i7 processor. Considering that this is a laptop at the top end of Toshiba's range, it really could do with more robust build quality, especially in the lid.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.
