How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

Toshiba's Portege R830/R835 series shows that, while traditional ultraportable laptops have been upstaged by ultrabooks, they haven't gone away — and they're often cheaper and include more features than their superslim siblings. The R835 weighs about 3.2 pounds, includes an optical drive, and has a full complement of ports, including HDMI, VGA, Ethernet and USB 3.0. It also includes WiDi for wireless streaming to a compatible HDTV, and has good battery life. If you're willing to carry something slightly heavier than a typical ultrabook, want the convenience of a DVD drive, and want to save a little cash, the R835 is well worth considering.
