Toshiba UK today expands its range of premium business computers with the launch of the Portégé Z930 – the next generation of incredibly lightweight Ultrabook laptops designed for mobile professionals.


Combining a class-leading design, advanced security features and the latest Ultrabook processors, the Portégé Z930 is the definition of mobile business computing.

The ultimate portable business machine

Weighing just 1.12kg, the Portégé Z930 is the world’s lightest 33.8cm (13.3”) laptop. The unique combination of an incredibly durable magnesium alloy chassis and an internal honeycomb structure offers outstanding support throughout the working day. Combined with an eight hour all-day battery life, the Portégé Z930 is the perfect companion for long-haul business trips or daily commutes, and robust enough to withstand the physical strains of day-to-day use. At just 8.3mm at its thinnest point, it is also compact enough to easily fit in tight spaces or carry cases.

The anti-glare, LED backlit display ensures working on documents is comfortable for long periods of time, while using the laptop outdoors in bright sunlight is possible without distracting reflections. A full-size tiled keyboard features a backlight, illuminating each key for ease of use in low light conditions. Additionally, a spill-resistant membrane beneath the keyboard lets users save important documents and fully shut down the laptop, helping to prevent damage to the internal components in event of a spillage. Up to a 512GB SSD provides plenty of storage space and fast access to documents and programs, while remaining more robust, compact and energy efficient, as it features no moving parts.

With powerful 3rd generation Intel Core processors for Ultrabook and up to 12GB DDR3 memory, the Portégé Z930 is capable of effortlessly working through office applications, performing memory-intensive tasks or running multiple programs simultaneously. Intel Rapid Start Technology delivers an incredibly quick boot-up time, making the Portégé Z930 fully operational within seconds.

An integrated Intel HD 4000 GPU ensures the Portégé Z930 renders graphics, high-resolution photographs and HD video quickly – delivering rich detail and smooth playback. Integrated stereo speakers, enhanced with SRS Premium Sound 3D, produce crystal clear audio from music, video or dialogue.

Exceptional connectivity throughout the Portégé Z930 guarantees a range of options whether working from an office or remotely. The latest Wi-Fi standards ensure a fast, reliable and secure broadband internet connection is maintained, while optional 3G connectivity allows users to browse the web wirelessly from anywhere. Three full size USB ports and an SD card reader provide professionals with multiple options for expanding storage or connecting to peripheral devices. An HDMI output allows high definition video, web content or presentations to be viewed on a larger screen when connected to an HD TV or projector, while Intel® Wireless Display lets users wirelessly stream content from the laptop to compatible TVs.

Solid, secure performance

The Portégé Z930 comes equipped with a selection of advanced security features, keeping documents safe from theft, guest users or uninvited access. A Trusted Platform Module (TPM) is standard on selected models, offering enhanced encryption for more secure password protection, while a fingerprint reader only grants registered users access to the PC. Intel vPro and Intel Anti-Theft equip the Portégé Z930 with an additional layer of security, giving professionals a platform to add remote security services.

  1. Cannot find this model with 12G DDR RAM and 512 SSD HD anywhere. Could you let me know why your review says that the specification is available? Would that be introduced sometime later?
