Ultra-light for business anywhere
 
The Portégé Z30-A was made to move. Ultra-light and highly robust, it's the perfect companion to take on your business travels. Even without an extended battery, you get many hours on a single charge (from new, actual performance may be less).
 
And if you're out and about in direct sunlight, you won't see any glare on the non-reflective screen with LED backlighting. So it's really convenient to type emails or create documents, in or out the office, even in dimly lit conditions.
 
Power and performance, without compromise
 
With the advanced processor your laptop has all the power you need to multitask on the move or in the office.
 
The Portégé Z30-A delivers faster speeds and higher responsiveness from the second you boot-up to the minute you shut-down.
 
There's no compromise, so you can run all of your business applications with ease.
 
Better connected on the move
 
The Portégé Z30-A is packed with mobile flexibility. All ports are full-size, you won't need any special adapters either. You can transfer data to other devices much faster. Or share your presentations in high-resolution brilliance with HDMI.
 
Gigabit LAN also allows fast access to your local network, while fast Wi-Fi gives you the freedom to work wirelessly. So you can be more productive.
 
You can depend on it
 
The ultra-durable Portégé Z30-A was designed to withstand the pressures of professional life and meet Toshiba's quality standards.
 
With its light yet strong magnesium chassis, the Portégé Z30-A is robust enough to withstand ultra-mobile business, so you can be sure of a higher return on your investment.

Our Specialist view of the Toshiba Portege Z30

The Spec:

The ultra light Toshiba Portege Z30, despite compact stature it’s packed out with: a 6th Gen Intel Core i5 2.30GHz processor, backed up with 4GB RAM that can be increased to 8GB and a substantial 256GB high performance SSD. This is all wrapped up in a chassis that weighs less than 1.30 kilos and a Full HD screen. Windows 10 Professional is also preinstalled with a webcam and HDMI for connecting at home, work or school.

The Good Bits:

From almost any angle there is so much to like about this laptop. It’s difficult to look past its profile and lack of weight. You can pick it up and carry it around and you wouldn’t because it weighs less than 1.20kg. It’s also thin so it can be carried easily with books and folders or tucked away in a small bag. The HDMI and VGA ports are really useful additions in place of what usually would just be a VGA port. Do you need to connect to a projector that only has VGA? Tick!

The Not So Good Bits:

We’ve kind of shot ourselves in the foot here a little by suggesting above that there isn’t much not to like about this laptop, and we are sticking with this. However, we have found two things that stick out. The screen size, 13.3”, whilst it isn’t the smallest, will be a strain on the eyes working over extended periods of time. Thankfully as we have already established, the Z30 has both VGA and HDMI ports for a larger screen monitor. The second issue is the RAM. 4GB is good enough for a most requirements and it will upgrade to 8GB but that isn’t the most straightforward and can’t be upgraded further.

The Design:

It’s lightweight, sleek and updated design is a real plus for this laptop. The lid hinges are strong so the lid won’t just flop about and the ports are plentiful for a laptop of this size. The chassis is also made from magnesium which adds some robustness to a laptop that we feel definitely needs it given how easy it is to take out and about with you.

Suitability:

This is a laptop that scores points well for most professionals, especially those that travel often or just need their laptop to be that bit more portable without losing much firepower.
