Laptop Toshiba Portege R835

Laptop Toshiba Portege R835 Review :


assessing the Toshiba Portege R835-P88 resembles returning to an old companion. Past renditions of this workstation have won our desired Editors' Choice Award, by offering incredible all-around execution in a thin, lightweight 13-inch body, for much short of what you'd anticipate. 

However, since we assessed the last form of the R835, a seismic move in 13-inch workstations has happened, because of the developing prominence of the ultrabook. The R835 presently feels enormous and somewhat massive contrasted with the 20mm-or-less 13-inch ultrabooks from Dell, HP, and even Toshiba's very own Z835, which are for the most part accessible for around $899-$999 for a comparable Intel Core i5 setup, however with a 128GB SSD rather than the R835's standard platter hard drive.

But despite not being the newest or sexiest 13-inch laptop around, the Portege R835 still comes off as an excellent full-featured 13-inch laptop. This specific configuration, the R835-P88, has 6GB of RAM, a big 640GB HDD, and includes features missing from most ultrabooks, such as an optical drive and Intel's Wireless Display technology. While most retailers have this system listed at between $850 and $950, it's currently available on NewEgg for $699, which is an excellent deal.
If you're looking for the thinnest and lightest 13-inch around, take the same money and put it toward an under-$1,000 ultrabook. But if you're willing to trade some portability for features and a great price, the scrappy little Toshiba Portege R835 remains one of our go-to laptop picks.
Physically, this adaptation of the Toshiba Portege R835 is indistinguishable from past models we've checked on. A considerable lot of those prior perceptions stand, yet the ongoing ultrabook pattern changes the desires for what a thin midpriced 13-inch PC should closely resemble, leaving the R835 looking thick (yet at the same time feeling light in the hand). 

The R835 has an unobtrusive dim blue tint to its brushed-metal magnesium composite suspension. The base portion of the body feels solid in spite of its lightweight, however there's a touch of flex in the cover. This is as yet a keen looking customer/business hybrid workstation, yet it likewise keeps the one visual component we despised last time: the chrome-plated screen pivots, which simply look modest. 

Beforehand, you'd need to spend much more on something like a MacBook Air or a Samsung Series 9 to get a more slender 13-inch workstation. Today, ultrabooks, for example, Toshiba's Z835 offer slimmer bodies for around a similar cost or slightly more. 

The console, as most current customer workstation consoles, utilizes level, broadly dispersed island-style keys. Toshiba's consoles commonly have a vertical column of committed Page Up, Page Down, Home, and End keys along the correct side. This makes them simple to discover, and yet pushes the Enter and Right Shift enters in from where you'd instinctually anticipate that them should be. 

Media control catches, volume, quiet, etc can likewise be elusive, consigned to substitute F-key assignments and demonstrated in dull dim symbols on dark keys. The R835 still comes up short on an illuminated console, which numerous more slender ultrabooks have figured out how to function in. It would be significant in addition to have for this situation. 

The average size touch cushion is worthy, and it has separate left and right mouse catches, as opposed to being the across the board click cushion style we're seeing a greater amount of nowadays. The mouse catches are on the little and clacky side, however, function admirably enough. 

The 13.3-inch show has a local goals of 1,366x768 pixels - equivalent to the majority of the ultrabooks we've seen (by method for correlation, the MacBook Air's screen has a 1,440x900-pixel goal). Even though splendid, the off-hub seeing edges on the R835 wasn't incredible. In like manner, we've never been dazzled with the installed sound in the Portege PCs; the R835 speakers are discernible yet truly dreary.
Contrasted with a standard ultrabook or the MacBook Air, the Portege R835 has a liberal choice of ports and associations. Bluetooth is the clearest missing component, yet the consideration of an eSATA port is uncommon on a 13-inch workstation, it's as yet an entirely helpful approach to connect an enormous outside hard drive. 

This specific design of the Portege R835, called the R835-P88, is somewhat not quite the same as the pair of prior forms we inspected. Those 2011 models both had Intel Core i5-2410 CPUs and 4GB of RAM. This one has a 2.5GHz Intel Core i5-2450 CPU and 6GB of RAM, alongside a similar 640GB hard drive as in the past. That won't have a colossal effect in regular use, yet the additional RAM is pleasant. At the rundown cost of $849, it's adequate however not a deal. In any case, we've seen it for as meagre as $699, which is a fabulous generally esteem, thinking about the huge hard drive and additional RAM. 

In our CNET Labs benchmark tests, the Portege R835-P88 proceeded as one would anticipate from a workstation with this normal standard CPU. It was firmly tied with frameworks, for example, the HP Pavilion dm4 and just marginally quicker than the R835-P56X arrangement we tried already. None of these slight contrasts in execution, in any case, were huge enough that you'd notice them while Web surfing, playing back media, or taking a shot at office reports. 

The R835 did, nonetheless, far beat Toshiba's famous minimal effort ultrabook, the Portege Z835-P330, which gets its value down to $799 or so by dropping the CPU to a more slow Intel Core i3. A $1,000-in addition to a variant of that Toshiba ultrabook, the Z835-P370, exchanged up to a low-voltage Core i5 CPU and cut the speed contrast down the middle, however it was still slower.
The Portege R835 line has consistently had great battery life, and this most recent form ran for 6 hours and 42 minutes on our video playback battery channel test. That is superior to pretty much anybody in the space, and pretty much equivalent to you'd get from a 13-inch MacBook Pro or Air. Different Windows workstation producers should look to this for instance. 

Toshiba incorporates industry-standard one-year parts and works guarantee with the framework. Backing is open through an all-day, everyday cost-free telephone line, and a tweaked help search page can guide you to online records and driver downloads for this particular model. 

After being hit with a surge of more slender, lighter ultrabooks, it is anything but difficult to reject the Toshiba Portege R835 as yesterday's news. And keeping in mind that it's not as amazing as it was the point at which we originally observed it, it's as yet an extraordinary go-to workstation that packs in a major hard drive and optical drive, while weighing not exactly some PC named as real ultrabooks, (for example, the Samsung Series 5 Ultra).

The Good This latest version of the Toshiba Portege R835 is still a great value, packing a big hard drive, optical drive, and full-power processor into a chassis not much bigger than an ultrabook.
The Bad This 13-inch laptop once felt thin and light, but similarly priced newer laptops beat it on style and portability.
The Bottom Line This one-time favourite is still an excellent go-to 13-inch laptop, if you don't need something quite as slim as an ultrabook, and you can get it for the right price.
