    Toshiba announces the Portégé® Z830 Series, the company’s first Ultrabook™ using 2nd Generation Intel® Core™ processors

    At just 2.5 pounds and measuring only .63 inches at its thickest point, this ultrabook is built for convenience and unprecedented portability

     

    Toshiba just announced the Portégé Z830, the world’s thinnest and lightest 13.3-inch laptop. At just 2.5 pounds and measuring only .63 inches at its thickest point, this ultrabook (Toshiba’s first!) is built for convenience and unprecedented portability. It features Intel’s latest 2nd Generation Core i3, Core i5 and Core i7 processors with ample storage space, battery life and advanced technologies, providing users with executive-class performance.

    Toshiba says the system is part of Intel’s new ultrabook platform.   The Portege Z830 has a magnesium alloy case.  Toshiba says that’s about 20-percent lighter and 40-percent thinner than the Portege R835.

    As an ultrabook, the Z830 uses SSD memory, and a selection of second-gen Intel Core i-series processors. The keyboard is both backlit and spill-resistant and, like most of Toshiba’s other laptops, some of the USB ports support sleep-and-charge technology, which allows them to be used for charging phones, media players, and other devices, even when the laptop is turned off or sleeping.

    The Toshiba Portege Z830 (the consumer targeted version will be called the Z835) will be available in November, starting at under $1,000.
