tosh-ultrabook.JPGThose looking to pop a laptop on top of their Christmas lists this year would do well to give Toshiba’s latest Ultrabook duo a once-over. In stores before the end of the month and with prices starting at £899, Tosh’ are looking to make their mark on the Ultrabook category with the Portégé Z830 and Satellite Z830.

Both 13 inch, HD set ups, they’ve got either Intel core i3 or i5 Sandybridge chips depending on the specification build chosen marking them for Ultrabook status. 4GB or 6GB of memory can be popped inside, with 128GB SSDs on storage duties.

Gamers will be disappointed to find only a HD3000 integrated GPU on graphics duties which, while struggling with blockbuster titles, will be fine for HD video playback.

Prices start at £899 for the Satellite, topping out at around £1320 for the high-end configuration for the Portégé.
