Closer Analysis

There are many who might not like the dull grey finish, but the new Toshiba Protege Z830 is really a powerful device. The laptop is unbelievably light even by the Ultrabook standards and the 13.3 inch screen that has gone into the making of the device, is definitely one of the thinnest screens that you might come across.

The keyboard of the device is not great, but it is not bad either. The magnesium alloy design, WiDi 2.0 video streaming, lighter chassis, backlit keyboard, extra I/O options and the SD card slot indeed make the Toshiba Protégé Z830 a notebook tough to resist. However, the non removable battery, wobbly screen, tricky keyboard and the expensive price tag would definitely make you think twice about the same.

Toshiba Protege Z830 may not be the best laptop around, but it has enough features to keep you interested. It is a feature rich, powerful device with too slim a design and too high a price. Hence, for those who have the need and the money to get themselves a Toshiba Protege Z830, they may very well go for the same.

However, the others, would either have to wait for Toshiba to lower the prices or would probably have to settle for the other options available. In short, the Toshiba Protege Z830 scores big in performance, sex appeal and practicality but loses out on the price front.
