Toshiba Portégé Z830-10P

The Portégé Z830 is an impressive business ultrabook. Apart from the amount of flex in the lid, we like the slimline design and thoughtful ergonomics. Not everyone will appreciate the connectors on the back edge, though, and we'd have liked access to the battery.

Toshiba Portégé R830-138

Toshiba has updated the Portégé R700 with new components but retained the old chassis design. We'd prefer a more solid lid section, but the R830 is an impressively portable notebook. Battery life is good, but the cost remains high.

Toshiba Portégé R700-15Q

Toshiba's Portégé R700 is a well-made 13.3in. ultraportable, although the lid section is too flexible for our liking. Some may find the keyboard too spongy, and you'll have to spend more if you want an integrated optical drive. Battery life is good, though.

Netbooks are here to stay, says Toshiba, accounting for 15-20% of all their notebook sales – but those who want something ultraportable with a bit more power, it’s introducing the Satellite Pro T110. A year ago the cheapest ultraportables were around £1,000; the T110 weighs in at 1.

Toshiba Satellite Pro T130

The ultraportable Satellite Pro T130 could deliver all-day computing with appropriate usage patterns and power management settings. But its keyboard could be better, it lacks an optical drive and the glossy chassis design may not be to all tastes.

Toshiba Portégé A600-122

The Portégé A600-112 is a well specified ultraportable with particularly good wireless connectivity. However, the build quality seems a touch flimsy in places, including the keyboard.

Toshiba Tecra R10-112

This is a good-looking 14in. ultraportable with a particularly nice display. However, the design leaves it short of space for ports and connectors, while the keyboard has too much flex for comfort.
