The Toshiba Satellite R630 features an artistically different brushed finish and tiled keypard, marking it out as a stunning addition to the Satellite family.
With its subtle yet elegant design the Satellite R630 looks the part at home, school, university or in the office. With nine hours of battery life and packed full with smart design and technology such as Toshiba's facial recognition software and media controller, and it's innovative cooling system, the Satellite R630 is an ideal laptop for work and play, wherever you are.
Innovative Cooling System
The R630 is the first Toshiba laptop to feature a new way of keeping the laptop cool. Keeping the areas of the laptop liable to overheating in one place, the R630 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.
As well as staying cooler than ever, the R630 is stronger than ever too, without the additional weight of reinforcement. The honeycomb design on the R630's palmrest makes it naturally stronger and more resistant to pressure being applied - which means your laptop's internals are better protected
Toshiba TruBrite Crystal Clear Display
The large widescreen offers a TruBrite Crystal Clear Display for clearer, brighter images. The display is ideal for viewing the latest movies with its 16:9 true widescreen ratio and improves the contrast and clarity of everything you view, allowing you to view movies in their intended format.
Connectivity at your Fingertips
The Satellite R630 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 2.1 capability.

Complimenting the Windows 7 operating system, LifeSpace helps you simplify your PC experience through personalisation and quicker access to the things that matter the most to you, thanks to Bulletin Board and ReelTime.

Remember that file you looked at a while back but have no idea where you kept it on your PC? Well with Toshiba’s ReelTime, a visual timeline of your file history up to 3 months old is kept so that you can cut through the clutter to find what you are looking for quickly and easily. It sits above the Windows taskbar and the timeline can be easily scrolled through until you find the file you're looking for.
Integrated Web Camera
The Satellite R630 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 R630 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.
Top Customer Reviews
It has good spec and although very light, it feels more solid than (cheaper) similar-weight laptops that rely more heavily on plastics (Samsung Q330 for example). It has a good collection of ports and some neat extra touches (powered USB, on/off touchpad etc.)
The one thing that might take a little getting used to is the keyboard, particularly the surface of the keys. They are very smooth (almost shiny) plastic, which feels a little odd compared to a common-or-garden keyboard. On the plus side, the layout is good and for me the keys have the right about of 'clickiness'.
I'm planning to carry mine around quite a bit (trains, planes etc). If you're looking for something for a similar purpose where a netbook has too small a screen and keyboard to be comfortably useful when you get to your destination, I would recommend this.
Excellent Performance and Specification for the Price, i5-480M and 4GB is more than enough to run practically everything smoothly
Windows 7- Boots Very Quickly and preinstalled software is actually very good apart from McAfee
Very portable laptop, 13.3" is the perfect size for portability vs. usability
Solid Construction and Very High Build Quality
For the components used and compared to other laptops out there, very good value for money
Screen resolution could be slightly higher
Battery life isn't 8 hours under normal use, more like 6 hours max
Screen resolution fine for most applications, the glossy screen is clear and sharp but (as all glossy screens) needs careful positioning to avoid distracting reflections.
The only negative thing I would say about it is the sound, which is very tinny, due to generally the magnessium body. But this is an aceptable sacrifice when taken in context with lightness of the machine which is absolutly great for a portable laptop.
