Superlatives are very powerful in describing hardware that your company releases – they work great in getting your attention, not to mention raising more than just an eyebrow as it proves to be the standard to beat among your rivals. The Toshiba Portégé Z930 then has to ensure that by the time it is released in the third quarter of the year, it will still be able to hold on to its “lightest Ultrabook in the market” claim, tipping the scales at just 1.12kg in the form of a 13.3″ laptop. Touted to be the ultimate portable business machine, the Toshiba Portégé Z930 has a durable magnesium alloy chassis alongside an internal honeycomb structure, delivering up to eight hours of all-day battery life.
Certainly aesthetics play a huge role in the Portégé Z930′s design, as its thinnest point measures a mere 8.3mm, carrying an anti-glare, LED backlit display to boot so that you can work just about anywhere, while the fullsize tiled keyboard that has a backlight will let you work late into the night in low light conditions. Don’t worry about spilling water over it, the spill-resistant membrane located beneath the keyboard will save the day.
Underneath the hood lies a 3rd generation Intel Core processor, accompanied by the Intel HD 4000 graphics chipset, the ability to have up to 12GB RAM, and up to 512GB SSD of storage space, a large gesture control touchpad, USB 3.0, HDMI, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity, an SD memory card reader, alongside stereo speakers with SRS Premium Sound 3D. Pricing for the Toshiba Portégé Z930 starts from £899 onwards, depending on the hardware configuration of your choice. [Press Release (PDF)]
