Today, however, subnotebooks are Toshiba Satellite L830 longer just appealing to business travelers. With their often high battery life, their small form factor and most im portantly low weight, they also find use as multimedia devices.

While the right palm rest cannot be buckled, the left-hand side gave way slightly under normal force levels. The same can be observed in the middle of the keyboard, where the keyboard bed gives way considerably. The display lid, too, isn't built that sturdily and is prone to flexing. The display hinges, on the other hand, are faultless. They do their job well in keeping the lid stable and showed no sign of vibrations or other undesired movements.

Finally, there is a Kensington port, which can be used to secure the subnotebook against theft. Thanks Toshiba Satellite L830 the small footprint of the notebook, however, almost any table should provide enough space to place a mouse sufficiently far away from it. Left-handers are less restricted, although the power cord might get in their way.

Connectors on the back side would have avoided any issues for both left-handed and right-handed users, although this would have required a different solution for the display hinges. The LF revealed wireless networks previously unbeknownst to Toshiba Satellite L830.
