Used to small laptops thanks to its Portégé range, the Japanese manufacturer has simply put its know-how to good use in a 13-inch model, the Z830.The first ultrabook of Toshiba enters its professional range, understand the Portégé. Nevertheless, its measured price starting at 900 euros allows it to stir the lusts of mainstream consumers. But here, unlike Portégé Rxxx whose reputation has been made for a long time, the Z830 must wipe the plaster and prove its value.
