Outstanding features, easy to use and super-light,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Toshiba Portege Z935-P390 13.3-Inch Ultrabook (Magnesium Alloy Casing in Silver) (Personal Computers)
I travel once or twice a month and was looking for a very light computer to replace the netbook I had that was too small to do useful work on while away from the office. This was the lightest computer I could find anywhere, and is packed with enough speed for my business needs.
I bought this Toshiba Portege Z935-P390 based on one of the reviews I read on Amazon, and received it right before a 4-day business trip. It's been excellent so far, and here is why:
Pros -- The 13.3" screen is big enough for me to see, edit and create documents productively. It is also VERY light -- about 2.4 pounds according to the product literature, although I haven't weighed it. My Toshiba arrived with Windows 8 pre-installed. The keyboard lights up, which is an excellent feature if you travel at all by plane or wish to use it in low light. It also has an easy-to-find energy-save button that will power down the computer when it's not in use. Also, it has an HDMI outlet and once I got home was able to stream a movie from Amazon prime right onto the TV ... pretty cool!
Cons -- Windows 8, for me, is confusing and contains a lot that I would never use. As well, there is almost no printed documentation, and I found it pretty hard to find the online help -- in fact, the brief explanation in the QuickStart guide did not seem to correspond correctly to where important help information is available on the computer. Finally, this computer does not have a CD/DVD drive, although when I bought it I was aware that there were some easy-to-buy options for that.
