First Look: Toshiba Portege Z935-P300 hands-on

1:11 /

The Toshiba Portege Z935-P300 is an excellent ultrabook value if you can overlook its few design shortcomings.

-Hey there, I'm Josh Goldman, Senior Editor with CNET. And this is a look at the Toshiba Portégé Z935 P300. It's pretty much a textbook example of an ultra-book, not terribly exciting but solid nonetheless. It has the fit in like chassis made from magnesium alloy measuring about ½ inch thick and weighing 2.5 lbs. It's powered by a 3rd generation Intel Core i5 Mobile processor which gives a decent computing power as well as the battery life of more than 5 hours and also boots in a matter of seconds. The 13.4 inch screen gives you ample room to work and the keyboard, I've used better on similarly sized notebooks but the keys are backlit and it is spill resistant. The [unk] is good and you get wireless and in bluetooth and it is Intel Wireless display ready. Overall it's just a very nice laptop for everyday use. I'm Josh Goldman and that's the Toshiba Portégé Z935 P300. Thanks for watching.
