Toshiba has released three new professional laptops, the Toshiba Portégé Z30, Tecra Z40 and Tecra Z50, the three of them feature Haswell Intel processors and have been vastly improved, both design and performance-wise.
The Tecra Z40 and Tecra Z50 feature Intel Core i5 or i7, up to 16 GB of RAM and traditional mechanical disks of up to 750 GB or SSD drives of up to 512 GB. You can also add a dedicated NVDIA GeForce 730M graphics card.
The 14-inch Tecra Z40 has a 1.920 × 1.080 resolution, while the 13.3-inch Z30 and the 15.6-inch Z50 only 1.366×768. Despite the pictures everyone has seen show them with Windows 8, this won’t be the default OS –although there will be versions with it-, instead they all will have Windows 7 Professional preinstalled.
The 13.3-inch versions of the Portégé Z30 is only 17.8-mm wide and weighs 1.18 kg, although, naturally, you have to say no to both the graphics card we mentioned early, and the mechanical disks.
The Toshiba Portégé Z30 will cost 1279 USD, while the Tecra Z40 will cost around 1229 dollars, both of them available on October 18th.
