The Toshiba Portege Z935-P390 13.3" Notebook Computer in Silver is yet another notebook that impinges on Ultrabook territory. At less than an inch thin and weighing less than three pounds, the notebook features a 1.7GHz Intel Core i5-3317U dual-core processor which can be overclocked to 2.6GHz with Intel's Turbo boost technology. It also features 6GB of 1600MHz DDR3 Ram and a 128GB solid state drive.
The display is a 13.3" TruBrite backlit LED widescreen with a 1366 x 768 HD resolution and a 16:9 ratio for cinematic viewing. The mobile Intel HD graphics processing unit (using 64-1696MB of shared system memory) powers the graphics and the notebook includes an HDMI output to watch your digital media on another monitor or HDTV. The unit is also WiDi capable, which allows you to stream your media wirelessly to WiDi enabled devices.
Network options include 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi, Gigabit Ethernet and Bluetooth 4.0, so you won't be far from a connection to the Internet. There's also an integrated webcam and microphone to enjoy long-distance video chats and social networking.
The 128GB SSD means faster access to your data, with less heat transference and weight that spindle hard drives bring. There's also a media card reader that's compatible with SD, SDHC, miniSD, microSD and microSDHC cards (an adapter may be needed for microSDHC).
The list of extras continues with RGB output, USB 3.0/2.0 ports (one with Sleep and Charge capability so you can charge a peripheral without turning the laptop on), integrated stereo speakers with SRS Premium Sound 3D and a backlit keyboard - a nice touch when typing a term paper late at night in low light situations.
But one thing Toshiba does better than most is load their laptops with essential software. Besides the host of utility software like Toshiba Disc Creator, eco Utility and HDD Protection amongst others, there's everyday applications like a Microsoft Office Trial, Internet Explorer 10, Norton Anti-Virus programs and many more.
