I was a little disappointed at first. Now...really happy. Great screen, decent keyboard and touchpad, and really thin(thinner than a pencil even when it is closed). I thought the core i3 would be slow but nothing noticeable. I love the facial recognition too(scans your face and logs you in). The three cosmetic issues I have are 1) the screen bezel is a little thick at the top(around an inch), 2) the camera is pretty large and noticeable, and 3) the mouse buttons pick up finger prints pretty bad. Really those issues are nothing when you use this thing. It boots in less than 12 secs, resumes from sleep in around 2 to 3 secs, has intel WiDi so you can wirelessly display your screen on an HDTV, and the battery life is rated at 9 hours, but I'm averaging 7 1/2 to 8 hours with moderately heavy use(still amazing). I highly recommend this laptop. Oh one last thing, if you don't have another computer and you don't use cloud storage for music and other media you might want an external HDD because the SSD is 128GB but only about 88GB after OS is installed and fills up fast.

nice

This is a great laptop. I used to have an Apple but switch to PC. Yes most people go the other way but I prefer Windows PC better than a Unix based Mac (Apple). This PC runs well and is priced in my budget. Definately a 5 STAR item in my book. You won't be dissapointed. Read More

Product Overview

Set new records—with a breakthrough ultrathin PC that does the same
Save time and enjoy longer battery life —Toshiba’s Portégé Z835 Ultrabook is the world’s lightest 13” laptop offering a breakthrough razor-thin design and ultra-responsive performance that’s ready in a flash.
Guided by the pursuit of uncompromising mobility we engineered this PC lighter than all competing models at less than 2.5 pounds, under an inch thin, yet it’s every bit as powerful as a conventional laptop. It’s packed with essentials to keep you unplugged, engaged and productive most anywhere: Smart performance that keeps up with you, a solid state drive and USB 3.0 port so you can transfer data and get to your files faster; high-speed start technologies to launch your day in seconds; and an extended battery life rating of eight-plus hours. Sleek and smart, with a spill-resistant LED-backlit keyboard and ingenious magnesium alloy casing for greater strength and resiliency, this laptop balances freedom and flexibility like no other laptop around. Get ready to fly through your day.

Breakthrough Razor-thin Design
Standing just under an inch thin (.62”), and weighing less than two and a half pounds, the world’s new lightest 13” laptop bests the competition down to the core. Demonstrating that thin can be strong, it has a magnesium alloy case concealing a unique shock-absorbing design with a honeycomb rib structure reinforcement for greater durability. A solid state drive cuts weight while adding faster and more reliable file access. Plus, a spill-resistant LED backlit keyboard makes real life a little less perilous.

Ready in a Flash
Our new Portégé is so sleek you might forget you even have it—until you see what it can do. Thanks to 2nd Generation Intel Core processors, it’s powerful enough to handle everyday multi-tasking, all your favorite media and then some. With innovations like Toshiba High-Speed and Intel Rapid Start Technology you’ll be able to speed up start and resume times. And with fast components, like a 128GB Solid State Drive and USB 3.0 port, you’ll be able to fetch your files a whole lot faster, too.

Essential Everyday Features
Even though this laptop takes thin-and-light to the extreme, it offers everything you’d expect in a conventional laptop?at a fraction of the weight. Its LED-backlit keyboard looks cool and makes typing a breeze. It has plenty of ports when the time comes to broaden your options. To keep you connected to people, places and devices, it comes with Wireless-N, Bluetooth on select models, plus a microphone and webcam. And it has stereo speakers enhanced for maximum sound quality, providing outstanding aural performance with audio that’s louder, clearer, fuller and more lifelike. Playing tunes, watching movies or browsing media-rich sites becomes the pleasure it should be.

More Unplugged Freedom
With the Portégé Z835 Ultrabook, mobility means more than just great portability. It means a long battery life rating of up to eight hours. Go ahead browse, email, do and enjoy non-stop. The convenience of travel-minded features like USB Sleep and Charge. The freedom of innovative technologies like Intel Wireless Display. It’s about getting everything you want on the go.
