Toshiba unveils ultrabook contender Portégé Z830


One of the devices that was shown at the Toshiba event earlier today was their ultrabook contender, the Portégé Z830. The Portégé Z830 pushes the boundaries of what a thin and light notebook can be. This extremely light notebook barely tips the scales at 1.12 kilos, yet is still powered by Intel’s second generation Core series of processors (although we weren’t sure which processor exactly).

This 13.3-inch notebook has a 128 GB SSD drive for speedy start-ups, has a full suite of connectivity options and is only 15.9mm thick. We recon it’s able to stand up to the rigors of day to day use too, as it sports a magnesium casing with honeycomb reinforcement. Sadly, there’s no word on price and availability yet, but we’re pretty sure it’s going to be available before the year is out.
