A weight of under 2.5 pounds; 8-hour battery life; fast solid-state drives; enterprise-grade security. The Toshiba Portege Z930 doesn't skimp on the specs of most importance to mobile professionals. The 13-inch Z930 weighs less than the MacBook Air, but it packs features like TPM (Trusted Platform Module) security, built-in VGA and HDMI ports for connecting to projectors, a spill-proof backlit keyboard, and IT management options. The Z930 also supports up to an Intel Core i7 processor with vPro technology (for enhanced security built into the chip), up to 12GB of memory, and up to 512GB of SSD storage. Also impressive: the starting price is just $899.
