I bought my Portege Z835-360 unit (Core i3, 4GB Ram, 128Gb SSD) on May 26, 2012 for $749.99 which is a very good price (2 weeks later and it's $699.99 already... oh well, technology). I decided not to go more upscale with the specs 'cause there are important compromises made by this and all other Ultrabook models as they all belong to the first round of Ultrabooks ever (Toshiba Portege, HP Folio, Asus Zenbook, Acer Aspire, Dell XPS13,etc.). So more money for better specs (Core i5, 6GB Ram) would not make up for the weaknesses of this model. As reviewers have all stated, Toshiba's is the one that offers the most for connectivity and ports. So that plus a very good experience I've had with my current (or should I say "old") Satellite A505 made my decision not-as-hard as it could have been.
Overall, it is a terrific value.
- Nicely priced. I think it is the cheapest Ultrabook around (and I don't mean it the bad way).
- Good Built Quality.
- Insanely thin and light. I think lightest of all 13-inchers.
- Good screen size. I don't perceive it as little or cramped (and I'm coming from a 16" screen)
- Full array of ports (1 USB 3.0, 2 USB 2.0, full-sized HDMI, Ethernet, VGA, mic and headphone jacks, SD)
- Decent sound. C'mon. It's a thin & light 13". Don't expect that much.
- Excellent battery life. I haven't drained it yet but it should be over 6 hrs of light use (no watching movies nor playing games).
Aspects that hamper user experience:
- Keyboard. This is my biggest complaint. Shallow keys and lack of feedback. I really have to type hard (meaning effort and noise) to have a confident and fast typing. It tires me after a long e-mail.Read more ›
Anyway, I loved the ultra-thin look of this machine but I think it's possible the unit might be TOO thin (i.e. flimsy). I was very concerned about the other user reviews saying that the screen cracked during normal use and that Toshiba was refusing to honor their warranty. This was ALMOST enough to deter me from making the purchase...but then I did a little research that made me feel a lot better for two reasons.
First, if you're worried about breaking the screen, Amazon sells a 2-year protection package for $99 that will cover physical damage like this. Of course the screen should never break during normal use, but if you're paranoid about it then $99 seems like a small price for that extra peace of mind.
Second, I did some searching and found that you can buy a replacement screen for this laptop for MUCH less than you might think -- currently around $75. As it happens my wife broke the screen on her Acer netbook a few years ago, and I was shocked to find that a new screen was only about $45 and replacing it was actually very easy...just remove a few screws and plug the new unit in. People shouldn't be intimidated by this kind of thing...it's not brain surgery!Read more ›
I highly recommend this laptop.
Oh one last thing, if you don't have another computer and you don't use cloud storage for music and other media you might want an external HDD because the SSD is 128GB but only about 88GB after OS is installed and fills up fast.
I also bought a 3 year accidental warranty based on 2 other reviews that the screen breaks. With such a light chassis, the screen does flex if you twist it. The trade off is lightness or strength. My scale says 2 lbs 6.4 ozs. The keyboard is ok and lights up. Touch pad and screen are Ok.
I am fan of extended warranty on laptops as I've had a Vaio and the Asus need new motherboards and one toshiba screen broke when it got stepped on the floor of the car. The 2 year old Asus motherboard wiged out on a trip to Hawaii and though Asus customer support was good, they wanted $560 (parts $500 labor $60) to fix it.
Anyways, I will update this review later. Good luck on your decision making. Hope this was helpful.
