The Good Slim and light, yet still fully featured. Backlit keyboard.

The Bad Only one USB 3.0 port. 1366x768, highly glossy screen.

The Bottom Line Just like the Z830, the Z930 is a great laptop for portability and flexibility. We'd love it if it had a better quality screen, like Samsung's Series 9, but for port complement it can't be beat.

Take the Satellite Z830 and whack new bits in — that's Toshiba's Satellite Z930. The processor gets a bump to third generation Core, we get 6GB instead of 4GB RAM, otherwise, everything else is pretty much the same.


  • USB 3.0: 1
  • USB 2.0: 2
  • Optical: none
  • Video: HDMI, VGA
  • Ethernet: gigabit
  • Wireless: 2.4GHz 802.11n, Bluetooth 4.0

That means a 128GB SSD, 2.4GHz 802.11n and Bluetooth 4.0 remain for the internal specs. Toshiba's strength as an ultrabook, though, comes from its ports: full sized Ethernet and HDMI, a VGA port, separate headphone and microphone jacks, an SD card reader, a single USB 3.0 port and two USB 2.0 ports.

At AU$1299, this will suit most people, although, if you want a bit more, AU$1899 will get you a Core i7 3667U and 256GB SSD.
