Toshiba Portege Z830 Ultrabook Available Now Online

Toshiba Portege Z830Toshiba's new Portege Z830 Ultrabook, a device that the company is touting as the world's lightest 13" laptop, is now available online for everyday consumers at A total of four different models of the Portege Z830 are available now with a base price of $929. However, customers do have the option of building their own, though that starting price is slightly more expensive at $1,099.

The configurable model, as well as the other two higher-end models (priced at $1,199 and $1,429 respectively), is considerably more expensive than competing Ultrabooks like the Acer Aspire S3, which sells for $899. However, the extra cash you spend entitles you to a bunch of upgrades including an Intel Core i5 or i7 processor, Windows 7 Professional, a three-year warranty, Bluetooth, a fingerprint reader and, for those who cash in on the $1,429 model, 6GB of memory over the standard 4GB. Still, Acer offers a beefed-up model of the Aspire S3 with an Intel Core i7 processor and 256GB SSD for only $1,299.

You can also pick up a less expensive edition of the Toshiba Portege Z830, known as the Z835. In addition to being more affordable, the Z835 is also the lightest Ultrabook on the market, hands down. Many reviews have stated that the weight difference between the Portege Z835, other Ultrabooks and Apple's MacBook Air is immediately noticeable. The Portege weighs 2.4 lbs while the 13" MacBook Air weighs 2.96 lbs.

There is also an exclusive Best Buy Portege Z835 that is priced at $799. If you compare Toshiba's $929 Z835-ST8305 and the $929 Z935-P330 models against Best Buy's version, you won't find any significant differences in terms of specs so the Best Buy model may be your best bet. All three models offer the same 1,366 x 768 resolution on a 13.3" display and come with an Intel Core i3-2367M processor, 4GB of memory and a 128GB solid state drive.

The Z835 does have some other things going for it, however, aside from light weight, like a full array of full-sized ports, a backlit keyboard and a solid state drive. If you want to get one in time for the holidays, head on over to Toshiba's Portege Z830 website. Toshiba says that the devices will ship in about three to four weeks.
