Toshiba Portege R930

  |   by NotebookReview Staff

As configured, the R930 proved to be an excellent performer, much of that performance can be attributed to the inclusion of an Intel Core i7 processor, SSD storage and Intel’s Ivy Bridge architecture. As tested, the R930-S9330 proved to offer some pretty decent benchmark stores. Keep in mind that Toshiba offers the R930 in a number of different configurations … including less expensive versions with weaker processors and fewer ports.
