Toshiba breaks more barriers bringing highly mobile notebooks with first class features : new PORTÉGÉ R830 offers an unparalleled blend of mobility, power and durability as well as Toshiba’s new and unique Panel Open – Power On feature


Toshiba today announced a new range of slim, light and high-spec notebooks targeted at professionals. The new 13-inch series will be available as PORTÉGÉ R830, and it comes in great color variations – Metallic Black, Blue and Red. The new PORTÉGÉ series is estimated to be available during the second quarter of 2011 throughout South and South East Asia.

Technology made to differentiate

In order to pack such a powerful punch into such slim and light devices, Toshiba made use of various innovative technologies focusing on two areas: smart and efficient cooling solutions and chassis construction. An ‘Airflow Cooling’ system, co-developed by Intel and Toshiba, in the R830 allowing Toshiba to integrate the latest Intel Core family processors even in the device’s slim casing while keeping the fan noise to a minimum. An ingeniously designed ventilation duct in combination with a cleverly arranged circuit board layout optimizes heat removal.

The thin and lightweight design doesn’t compromise on durability. The casing’s honeycomb structure in some of the casings areas of PORTÉGÉ R830 series makes it highly robust against flexing, thereby considerably prolongs the products’ lifetime. Also, protection of the electronic and mechanical components is supported by a highly resistant magnesium alloy casing.

To enhance customer usability and enable quicker boot up time on the notebook, the new PORTÉGÉ R830 comes integrated with Toshiba's new and unique "Panel Open - Power On" feature, which allows users to boot up the notebook simply by flipping up the display panel when it is shut down or in sleep or hibernate mode.

Endurance tests have proven PORTÉGÉ R830’s durability

During extensive HALT testing conducted by the independent German test institute TÜV Rheinland, the PORTÉGÉ R830 proved itself to be highly durable: They were able to withstand drops from a 76cm height, sustained a load of 100kg on the LCD lid, and were resistant against spills up to a volume of 30ml without any impact on the data stored on the device.

Travelling light without having to compromise

Weighing from 1.40kg, the slim and easily portable 13.3-inch PORTÉGÉ R830 is optimized for frequent travellers. The Toshiba’s new PORTÉGÉ R830 meets all needs of both large corporate and small to medium-sized businesses as well as small offices with highly mobilized workforces. Though thin and light, the PORTÉGÉ R830 does not trade-off with performance while out and about.

PORTÉGÉ R830 gives users what they need

Featuring the most in-demand interfaces, the PORTÉGÉ R830 series easily connects to the world. They come with a high-speed USB 3.0 port allowing data rates of up to 5GB . This allows back-ups of data-demanding files such as videos, high-quality photos or large music libraries on a USB 3.0 compatible storage device which now can be done quickly within minutes. With fast wireless interfaces (WLAN 802.11n, Bluetooth 3.0 + HS) and also a HDMI port, the PORTÉGÉ R830 series meets all needs of a modern digital lifestyle. Connectivity can even be expanded through the optional docking station with additional ports and interfaces such as USB (two USB 3.0, four USB 2.0), HDMI, and Gigabit LAN support. Despite their slim design, PORTÉGÉ R830 comes with an optical disc drive as standard.
