We’ve just had a note from Toshiba Europe to say that the Toshiba Satellite Z830-10J is now shipping in Germany, Austria and, I believe, the Benelux area. Specs are as we have then in the database (note it’s the Satellite and not the Portege in Europe…so far) and the official spec list confirms a matt screen. (Entspiegelt) Recommended retail price is €1099 but I see a number of retailers offering it for €999. Amazon for example. (Toshiba Satellite Z830-10J – aff.)
Remember that the Z830 (holding second place in our poll ) has an upgradable memory and SSD slot. You can swap the 2GB stick for a 4GB stick and have 6GB in total (2GB are soldered on the motherboard.) Upgrades, I suspect, will break the warranty though.
Even better news is that the Z830 is on it’s way to us for some hands-on and we’re setting up a live video review for you. At some point in the next week we’ll turn on the cameras, open that chat and let you join in on 2hrs of hard testing – steered by you. Stay tuned here for an announcement. If you haven’t seen a live review before, check out the session we did with the Samsung 900X3A. It’s fun and detailed.

Note: No info for the UK market at the moment, sorry.
