The Portégé Z930’s lightweight and compact design means that is has less than a 1.2kg profile and is just 15.9mm-high. This makes it lighter than the MacBook Air of the same size.

Additional features include the latest generations SSD with up to 256GB and the latest Intel processor for ultrabook.

The robust Portégé Z930 is protected from bumps, spills and other small accidents that may damage your keyboard by Toshiba’s EasyGuard suite of technologies.

Advanced security features, such as a fingerprint reader for instant login, and the Trusted Platform Module are also supported on the model.

The third-generation Intel Core vPro processor family gives the Portégé Z930 strong IT management capabilities including password protection and embedded security like disk encryption. With features like this, who needs a tablet?
