Reviews for the Toshiba Satellite Z830-10J

83% Review Toshiba Satellite Z830-10J Ultrabook | Notebookcheck
Light as a feather. The power of a big notebook, but as light as a netbook. The Z830, as Toshiba's first ultrabook, presents itself with good battery runtimes and outdoor suitability. Where is the device positioned in comparison to the ultrabook competition from Asus, Acer, Lenovo and co.? Find all details here in this review.
Toshiba 14-inch Ultrabook review: hands-on
Source: T3 English version
While we couldn’t get Toshiba to give us any hints about the final retail price, it sure looks like this Satellite will end up being a good solution for those wanting the features and benefits of the Ultrabook design combined with a study chassis, long battery life, and full-sized ports. We sure can’t wait to get our hands on the final production model and will be keeping our fingers crossed for a reasonably low sticker price.

Toshiba Satellite Z830 Ultrabook: Writing is on the wall for big laptops
Source: APC Mag English version
Toshiba’s lightweight Satellite Z830 Ultrabook shows the days of big, heavy notebooks are numbered. What’s great about this Ultrabook is that it feels like a traditional notebook that’s been miraculously slimmed down to almost tablet thickness. The array of ports and the performance are those of a big computer, not of an ultra-thin.

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.

80.1%: This rating is slightly above average, there are somewhat more devices with worse ratings. However, clear purchase recommendations look different.
