Reviews for the Toshiba Portege Z30t-B-10K

When you work hard, so will the Toshiba Z30t-B. It will easily slip into your briefcase or backpack, and its optional Core i7 CPU really flies. We also like the comfy keyboard, which is great for all your emails and reports, and the colorful display (although it's a bit dim). The security features -- including a password utility, PIN protection and a fingerprint sensor -- are also welcome.

Any business-minded ultrabook today has its work cut out for it in the dual-front battle with Lenovo’s strong alternatives (the ThinkPad X1 Carbon and LaVie Z) as well as with the ubiquitous Apple MacBook Air, the machine that arguably inspired the category in the first place (even if it’s not, specifically, a business machine). The Portege Z30t as we tested it manages contend on mostfronts.

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.
