4.0 out of 5 stars One year impressions, June 27, 2012
This review is from: Toshiba Portégé R835-P94 13.3-Inch Laptop (Magnesium Blue) (Personal Computers)
I bought this laptop just about one year ago (mine has the i3 instead of an i5, but is otherwise identical). I'll keep this short and sweet.

The great:
- after one year, solid hardware performance with no reliability issues
- Very light
- Excellent battery life

The good:
- flawless reliability
- good disk capacity
- reasonably fast
- The weight of most ultrabooks, but still has an optical drive
- Good selection of ports, ethernet, SD card slot

The not as good:
- Screen color quality and viewing angle is not great
- Keyboard is noisy and keys are too glossy. Not the best typing experience, but passable
- Speakers are tinny/poor if that is an important quality to you
- Moderate amount of Toshiba bloatware

This is a great almost-ultrabook laptop that is more traditional. The build quality is good for the price. The weight is awesome and so is the battery life. If you don't want to spend >$1000 for an ultrabook, this is almost as good.
