Best Laptop to Travel With

Note: There’s a giveaway at the end of the post. It’s a very cool gift and very easy to win. All you need to do is comment. Considering I don’t normally receive comments, you’ll probably stand a good chance. Haha.


I’m not the typical traveller where I leave all my gadgetry back home when I leave for another country, I thrive on my phone and iPod and laptop.

Yes, I bring my laptop everywhere I go, despite having to carry a heavy backpack around; which, frankly, could be a pain most of the times.

Don’t judge, you have your peeving quirks; I have mine. And I can’t live without my trusty notebook whenever I’m away from home; mainly because I dislike typing on anything else other than one.

This trip to India, I brought my new Ultrabook with me – the Toshiba Portégé Z830 Ultrabook; which is only 1.12kg light! It’s so insanely light even my novel is heavier than my laptop. I love it to the max.

I love the keyboards, love the fact it’s fast, love that it starts up fast (2 seconds from sleep) and has a really sustaining battery life (I left it on sleeping mode for seven days while on the road in India only to realize I forgot to switch it off, when I flipped open the lid, the laptop has still 6% of battery left! Amazing!); and I’m not just saying this because it’s a sponsorship; the Toshiba Portégé Z830 Ultrabook is definitely, by far, the best laptop I’ve ever owned.

I know, that’s a really big claim to have, but it’s true. Priced at RM4700++, you get a lean mean machine; I thought it’s definitely a JOY to have, given the fact that I’m still very much a Windows fan.

A Giveaway on Nicolekiss!

That’s right, this week I have a neat giveaway from Toshiba.

First let’s look at this week’s challenge video.


Please watch the video, I looked the best in this video. LOL


In this challenge we have the Q&A Challenge where we have to guess which of the two items (a random object and the Toshiba Ultrabook) is heavier.

The super kiasu me at the guessing game.


The game was more difficult than I thought, so many things that were surprisingly heavier than the Toshiba Portégé Z830 Ultrabook which was 1.12kg, whenever I doubted myself I just guessed the Ultrabook being lighter, lol #cheatmax
