Most helpful reviews

Mark, Stockport Often on the move

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Very light weight given power and battery life; display excellent. The SSD disk makes all tasks load very quickly. From off to on is very fast. The 3G ability integrated is excellent as you can really wander knowing that a connection will be possible. Toshiba have learnt to leave their software as add-ons rather than the intrusive nature of some previous versions.
Bad points:
I would like to have seen the track pad central rather than the slightly left shifted position. The trackpad mouse buttons are too stiff and make a click which is obtrusively noisy in certain situations. I also would liked to have seen the track pad area a different shade of black as in low light it is sometime difficult to locate its edges. The keyboard is fine for me having read others complaints! I like the way it is really well sealed against dirt and the only observation is that I find the keys just a tad too 'slippery' to the touch. My biggest gripe is the webcam is only low spec which seems a silly saving on a high end PC; I am sure they view it as a tool for face recognition but I would have preferred to see a more capable device good for skype and working in a full range of light conditions; the inbuilt illumination led seems pointless!

Lel, Business user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Good battery life, coupled with solid state drive which enables simply closing the lid, reopening and then starting again.
Bad points:
Though this is light, could be even lighter. Question of whether CD drive really required.

rod, woking Often on the move

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Compact, keyboard is easy to use, relatively light.
This is my 4th Toshiba Portege and I see no reason why it should not follow in the footsteps of its predecessors and provide a very good, reliable, easily portable machine.
Bad points:
It is expensive relative to some other portables.
