Toshiba Portege X30-D (PT274U-01N001)

The Toshiba Portege X30-D (PT274U-01N001) is a business-oriented 13.3-inch laptop. The X30 packs a lot of power in an impressively thin and light body. Premium look and feel, top-tier components, and Thunderbolt 3 look to appease road warriors and frequent fliers. Toshiba offers a few options for the processor, RAM, display resolution, and SSD, allowing purchasers to tailor the device to their specific needs. The PT274U-01N001 is rigged with an Intel Core i7-7600U, 16 GB of RAM, and a 256 GB NVMe SSD. At less than 16 mm thick and just over 1 kg, the Portege X30 is one of the most compact notebooks currently on the market. The magnesium alloy case is very well made. Metal adorns almost every surface of the device, save for the large bezel around the display and the plate housing the keyboard, which are both plastics. This gives the notebook a cool, premium, and elegant feel. There is a very subtle texture to the chassis that feels akin to fine-grain sandpaper. This gives a bit of added grip that's helpful when pulling the computer from a bag or moving it around. The Toshiba Portege X30-D has a Full HD (1920x1080) panel with optional 10-point multi-touch. The IPS display is excellent. With an average brightness of 323 cd/m², the screen is bright enough for most lighting conditions and is noticeably brighter. Due to its relatively bright panel and matte finish, the display is quite usable outside. Direct sunlight can hinder the experience, but while under shade or overcast sky, images and text remain clear enough for standard business tasks. Built on Intel's Kaby Lake architecture, the dual-core Core i7-7600U has a base clock speed of 2.8 GHz that can turbo up to 3.9 GHz across both cores. This, coupled with a speedy NVMe SSD and up to 32 GB of RAM, makes the X30 a capable machine able to handle almost any task thrown its way. However, its weakness lies in 3D-focused applications, such as modeling or gaming. The integrated Intel HD Graphics 620 GPU is not well-suited for these heavy workloads. The Portege X30 has a slew of security features that most users will find useful. In addition to TPM, the X30 has a fingerprint scanner (integrated into the touchpad) and an infrared iris scanner that works incredibly well with Windows Hello. Both biometric scanners are quick and fairly reliable. While some notebooks have sacrificed I/O in the name of thinness, Toshiba has done a decent job with connectivity here. The X30 sports a Kensington lock, a USB 3.0 Type-A port, and a full-sized HDMI port. There are also a microSD slot for media transfer and two USB 3.1 Type-C ports with full Thunderbolt 3 support. Thunderbolt 3 is highly versatile and able to support high-res displays, eGPUs, fast external drives, and more. Hands-On-Artikel von Jagadisa Rajarathnam

Featherweight champion? Toshiba's Portégé X30 packs tons of features in one of the lightest bodies currently available. Can the X30 compete with other thin-and-light heavyweights, or will it get knocked out?

80% Toshiba Portege X30-D Review
Source: Computer Shopper English
The Toshiba Portege X30-D is a well-balanced business notebook. It offers a very high level of quality, and a feature set that’s superior to most of its competition. Interestingly enough, though, it doesn’t actually beat its competition in most respects. For example, we think that the competing HP EliteBook 1040 G3 has a better-looking design, and that the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon (2017) has a better-feeling keyboard. Furthermore, the Dell Latitude 14 7000 (7480) has considerably better battery life.

Toshiba Portégé X30 Windows 10 business laptop [Review]
Source: Beta News English
Ultimately, the Toshiba Portégé X30 is an excellent business-class laptop, that when paired with the optional docking station, also becomes a top-notch desktop. It is light, powerful, and quite frankly, beautiful too. It is even pretty easy to upgrade. If you need a portable workstation for your company, the Toshiba Portégé X30 is highly recommended.

Toshiba Portege X30 review: The clamshell strikes back
Source: Computerworld.com English
At $2,109, the high-end version of the Portégé X30 that I tested does not come cheap, and even the starting price of $1,429 may strain some corporate IT budgets. But is a well-built and rugged system that not only stands up to daily use but can power through just about any task you throw at it -- and provides peace of mind with a three-year warranty.

Toshiba Portégé X30
Source: Tech Smart English
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.

The Toshiba Portégé X30 is a phenomenal business ultrabook, dripping with features that make it much better-suited to an enterprise environment than other high-end laptops. It's not the top of the tree in terms of power, but it's close, and it can't be beaten for versatility.

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.
