Case In terms of its appearance, the subnotebook makes an excellent first impression. The case is slim, weighing barely 1.

The lid could also do a better job of withstanding twisting forces. The two display hinges have a high-gloss covering which contrasts well with the otherwise black case.

However, we do have to criticise the layout of the ports. On the left-hand side of the laptop, almost all the ports are positioned near the front edge. Towards the back, all you have is the power socket and the air vent.

We feel that the ports could easily have been moved further back, as has been done on the right-hand side. In addition, there is also an optional 'Port Replicator' on the underside of the notebook; this allows you to connect the Toshiba Satellite R Toshiba Satellite R830 Sync a docking station available separately and thereby extend your range of ports.

The travel and the level of tactile feedback are well chosen, allowing you to type quickly and easily.

We particularly liked the muted sound when you hit the keys - they are not as loud as on some other models, Toshiba Satellite R830 Sync quite intentionally. Touchpad The touchpad under the keyboard is generously proportioned for a subnotebook.
