Matte FHD touchscreens and a starting weight of just over 1 kg make the new 13.3-inch X30-D attractive for business travelers. SKUs start at 1600 Euros and are not yet available in the US.

Toshiba made it a priority last year to focus less on the consumer notebooks and more on the lucrative business notebook market instead. The latest Portege X30 series looks to be the Japanese manufacturer's most lightweight business notebook yet at just 1.05 kg. We expect the touchscreen-enabled SKUs to be slightly heavier, but this is still lighter than the latest Lenovo X1 Carbon and HP Spectre 13 at 1.14 kg and 1.11 kg, respectively. Additionally, the Toshiba will still be thicker than the aforementioned Lenovo and HP systems at 16.4 mm.

The Portege X30-D will launch in four SKUs from the Core i5-7200U with 8 GB of RAM up to the Core i7-7500U with 16 GB of RAM. Unlike the more mainstream Satellite series, the flagship Portege lineup skips the subpar HD panels in favor of FHD even on the entry-level SKUs.

See the official Toshiba product page here for more technical specifications on the Portege X30-D.

The following SKUs are now available in Europe:

  • Portégé X30-D-10M: 1669 Euro (Intel Core i5-7200U, 8 GB RAM, 256 GB PCIe SSD, 13.3“ FHD Touch)
  • Portégé X30-D-11U: 1599 Euro (Intel Core i5-7200U, 8 GB RAM, 256 GB PCIe SSD, 13.3“ FHD)
  • Portégé X30-D-121: 2029 Euro (Intel Core i7-7500U, 16 GB RAM, 512 GB PCIe SSD, 13.3“ FHD)
  • Portégé X30-D-123: 2089 Euro (Intel Core i7-7500U, 16 GB RAM, 512 GB PCIe SSD, 13.3“ FHD Touch)

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
