Satellite R830 Series - Premium Computing. Powerful and Mobile.
This Satellite R830 is a slim, super stylish, lightweight, and robust laptop with one of the latest Intel® Core™ i5 processors that delivers premium all-round performance. 6GB of fast RAM allows smooth multitasking with multiple demanding applications, whilst the large 640GB hard drive will store all of your important files and media. Up to 9 hours battery life, Wi-Fi, and next-generation USB 3.0 keep you connected all day long while the durable magnesium chassis including honeycomb structure help protect against the impacts of everyday use. And when you're in the mood for large-screen entertainment, the HDMI port will let you see your content on any compatible HDTV.
Innovative Cooling System
The R830 features an innovative new way of keeping the laptop cool. Keeping the areas of the laptop liable to overheating in one place, the R830 draws in cool air rather than pushing out the hot air--meaning your laptop is nearly silent and its components work more efficiently in their cooler environment.
A combination of a unique internal honeycomb structure and a magnesium body provides the ultimate protection against the impacts of mobile computing. A 3D impact sensor also protects the internal HDD storage against knocks and bumps, helping to ensure content is protected, wherever you are.
Toshiba High Brightness Display
The 13.3" widescreen Toshiba HD non-reflective High Brightness display gives you clearer, brighter images. The display is the perfect way to view everything from movies to holiday photos, whether at home or on the move. HDMI connectivity gives you the flexibility to connect to a range of devices including HDTVs for big-screen playback.
Connectivity at your Fingertips
The Satellite R830 has an integrated HDMI port for added convenience and enhanced usability. Now you can connect your laptop to an external device and stream high definition content. When using HDMI, audio and visual content are streamed through a single cable, removing the need for multiple connections. Now you only need one cable, making connecting your laptop easier and tidier. Also included is a USB/eSATA port to connect your laptop to external devices and high-speed file transfers to external hard drives, a dedicated USB port and Bluetooth 3.0 capability.
Wireless Sharing is Easy with Bluetooth 3.0
This laptop includes Bluetooth 3.0 which allows you to connect and share files wirelessly over short distances. This makes it ideal for connecting to compatible mobile devices such as smartphones, MP3 players, and more. You can also use Bluetooth to connect to wireless peripherals, such as headsets, speakers, mice and keyboard, making it easier to use your laptop on the move or at home without the clutter of connecting wires.
SuperSpeed USB 3.0 for Fast Connections
Experience the transfer rates of the future with USB 3.0. By connecting to a compatible USB 3.0 device, such as an external drive, SuperSpeed USB 3.0 can offer up to 10 times faster transfer rates than today's Hi-Speed USB 2.0 standard.
This means that files and folders that took hours to transfer now just take minutes, and you can move whole albums to and from your laptop in just a few seconds, saving you time and making your media much more portable. Just imagine - now you can move a feature-length movie to a portable drive in just a few minutes, ready to take to a friend's house and watch on the big screen.
Not only is USB 3.0 fast, it's also convenient. You'll still be able to connect and charge all your favourite USB 2.0 devices from your USB 3.0 port, such as your MP3 player or smartphone. With USB 3.0 you get the compatibility you need for today with the speed you'll need for tomorrow.
Integrated Web Camera
The Satellite R830 features an integrated web camera with Toshiba Face Recognition. The camera and microphone let you see and hear your contacts online, and can take still pictures, video clips and audio notes. With Toshiba's integrated webcam communication is made easy--network with friends and family from the comfort of your own home.
Toshiba Face Recognition
Using numerous passwords can complicate things so instead of worrying about remembering all of these or using a single password that can be compromised, the Satellite R630 features Toshiba Face Recognition--the fun and easy way to log on to your laptop. Toshiba Face Recognition is a biometric-based identification method and uses the webcam to automatically detect 14 separate facial feature points to verify your identity and grant you fast and simple access to your data. Once your facial profile has been saved it can be used to access the system with no need to enter additional passwords. Additional users can store their own unique facial recognition profile, allowing your whole family to use the computer securely, and with peace of mind.
Toshiba Media Controller
A new interface to make content streaming easy, Toshiba Media Controller software facilitates media sharing between connected multimedia devices. Media Controller allows you to stream videos, music and pictures from a media library to TVs, laptops, smartphones or media players through a simple drag-and-drop interface. The system allows media sharing on networks under one single unified user interface through Windows 7's "play to" functionality and DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) which ensures interoperability of connected devices in a home multimedia network. Toshiba Media Controller makes multimedia file sharing a breeze. Easily display videos captured with a mobile phone via a network connection directly on a laptop and stream movies stored on a laptop to a large HD TV (requires DLNA-certified device) without knowledge about network configuration and with only a few clicks.
DVD SuperMulti Drive
View all your movies, use your laptop as a multi-purpose entertainment system and create your own CDs and DVDs with the built-in DVD SuperMulti drive. Not only does it provide great viewing, but the integrated speakers also offer optimum sound quality--perfect for listening to all your favourite songs.
Connect to the Internet easily thanks to Toshiba's ConfigFree suite. ConfigFree features Wireless Radar which displays nearby active Wi-Fi access points in a radar-like graphical interface. Draw a line from your computer to easily connect to Wi-Fi access points. Connectivity Doctor analyses your network connection and assists in fixing problems, features easy diagnosis and repair of communication problems, and shows detailed network. Profile Settings allows you to easily switch between network configurations and profiles can be created to capture the settings in different locations and switched automatically or semi-automatically. Finally, Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) features a push button config setting to easily setup a secured connection between an access point/router and your laptop.
Toshiba Eco Utility
Save laptop power with Eco Utility, a power saving application designed by Toshiba to encourage better energy efficient usage. Accessed via the Windows taskbar, once activated you can monitor and begin saving power consumption immediately. A power consumption chart can be displayed to show the increase and decrease of power consumption when the Eco Mode is active. The utility is designed to offer a graphic view of consumption while using the laptop, as well as a historical record of consumption which can display both power consumption (displayed in WH) and CO2 emissions (displayed in kg). Eco Utility allows the user to work in a power-saving Eco Power Plan. Once Eco mode is activated, the system works accordingly to set Eco-friendly parameters, such as automatically dimming the display brightness, disabling LED and keyboard backlighting, and reducing the time before activating the hard drive sleep mode.
3D Hard Disk Protection
The R830 instinctively protects your data on the move. When it senses that your laptop makes sudden movements--from dropping the machine to picking it up--the HDD head is unloaded, removing it from close proximity to the media, and so decreasing the possibility of damage. Once the notebook returns to a stationary state, the head is loaded back to its regular position.
Four levels of protection help to prevent a false detection--so turn on maximum protection when the laptop is unlikely to move--such as on a desk--and move it to a more liberal level when working on the train or in a situation where the laptop is likely to move slightly.
