Toshiba has released the Portege Z830, its first fully fledged ultrabook aimed at both businesses and consumers.
The Z830 was unveiled at the IFA trade show in Berlin in September, and it went on sale in the UK on Wednesday, with prices starting from £899 before VAT.
"The Ultrabook devices 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 and increased rigidity," Toshiba said. "The Portege Z830 Series provides the performance needed for work and entertainment plus improved power management."
Battery life is eight hours, according to Toshiba.
The base model comes with a 13.3-inch display, 1.4GHz Intel Sandy Bridge Core i3-2367M processor, 128GB solid-state drive (SSD), 4GB RAM and Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit edition pre-installed. Windows 7 Professional 64-bit is an add-on option that takes the total price to £969. There is no option to upgrade the integrated Intel graphics.
