Toshiba Ultrabooks Portege Z830 and Satellite Z830 unveiled at IFA 2011
 
 

Toshiba today unveiled the Portégé Z830 and the Satellite Z830 at the IFA 2011. These new laptops are Toshiba’s first Intel Core processor based Ultrabook devices. Weighing a mere 1.12kg and only 15.9mm thick, the Z830 series is about 20% lighter and 40% thinner than the award-winning ultraportable Portégé R830 series. These new systems offer impressive portability, durability and essential features with truly smart styling. The Z830 series devices will be available during the fourth quarter of 2011 in Europe.

Supporting the latest 2nd generation Intel Core Processors for Ultrabook and ultra-fast DDR3 memory, the Z830 series provides the performance needed for work and entertainment plus improved power management for great battery life. The Ultrabook device’s 128GB solid state drive delivers an extremely responsive experience, increased durability and increased energy efficiency.

The Ultrabooks feature a light, yet durable magnesium alloy casing that is reinforced with an enhanced “honeycomb rib” design and new internal structures that provide shock absorption, increased rigidity and resistance to flexing. This makes the laptops highly resistant to drops and shocks . Plus, the full-size LED backlit and spill-resistant  keyboard withstands accidental fluid spills to give users enough time to shut down the laptop and protect data stored on the device.

The Toshiba Z830 series prove that miniaturization doesn’t necessarily have to compromise connectivity. The ultra-portable machines feature a versatile set of interfaces including Bluetooth, WLAN and Mobile Broadband  plus a selection of full-size ports including VGA, HDMI and several USB ports, one of which is a USB 3.0 port.

The machines give users what they want and serve both professional and leisure needs – a major demand for today’s digital lifestyles. The bright 33.8cm (13.3’’), non-reflective high-definition display and powerful stereo speakers enhanced with Dolby Advanced Audio make the Z830 ideal for multimedia consumption on the go and at home. 

Toshiba has not revealed a release date for their Ultrabooks yet. In general we are still waiting for the first Ultrabook to hit the market. 

The IFA 2011 opens on September 2nd in Berlin, Germany. Read all the latest news and highlights in our IFA 2011 Hub.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
