The Toshiba Portégé is a high end Ultra book brand line from Toshiba. The Portégé series has a long line of several models, the latest being the 13.3 inch R930 series and the similar Z930 series. It is targeted to business professionals and is a lightweight series. Portégé laptops occasionally featured first-in-the-world technologies. R500 was one such machine, first of its kind in terms of form factor that provided an integrated DVD drive and was less than a kilogram in weight. Specifically, Portégé line and other Toshiba products can be found for sale at the Toshiba's website as well as at retail stores like Best Buy, PC Richards & Sons, Amazon.com, Newegg.com, and through Microsoft as well. The laptops are sold as either Z930s or R930s with a specific sub-classification which determines each Ultra book's specifications. Usually, models sold at each retail location are a little bit different.
Portégés are designed to be extremely mobile and rated highly in areas of portability, styling, and performance. Throughout their history, Portégé machines have been extolled due to their focus on long battery life. Furthermore, several high-end models in the Portégé line feature a Honeycomb Rib Structure which makes the laptop stiffer and more durable. Many also come with the optional feature of a Solid State Drive, which is more reliable than a traditional Hard Drive, as well as USB 3.0, which allows for faster data transfer. Toshiba in general is also known for making laptops which have the ability to charge a USB connected device even when the laptop is asleep or off.
Earlier models include the Portégé M780 and R700. Similar to the M750, the M780 features a flip and twist screen, which means it can be used as a notebook or a tablet. The device has a 12.1-inch LED-backlit display with a resolution of 1,200 × 800 pixels, and comes with a stylus for scribbling notes, which slots into the side of the chassis when not being used. The M780 also has a 320 GB hard disk, and can be customized or upgraded to Intel Core i7 processor and 8 GB RAM.
Early 2011, Intel Core released their new Sandy Bridge processors. Following that release, Toshiba has released its newest range of Portégé notebooks. Worldwide, there may be more models, however, the Australian range is known as the R830. All have minimum i5-2410M processor, 4GB of DDR3 RAM and Windows 7 Pro.
