    Within last 30 months I was using Portege R500 and R600. I had to migrate to more powerful machine 15 months ago - I have chosen Latitude E6310.

    But I'm tired with its weight (2.4kg) so I'd like to change some powerful but light machine - R700/R830 looks fine for me. The question I have is about RAID: is it supported when you connect external HDD via eSata?

    I have this feature in E6310 and I really love it...

    Hi

    According to the info on some Toshiba (Satellite/Portege) R830 specification pages, the notebooks support an eSATA/USB 2.0 (or USB 3.0 depending on the notebook model) which supports the USB Sleep-and-Charge functionality.
    There is no info about RAID so I assume itís not supported.

    Greetings

    You won't find hardware RAID on any recent model, especially the thin portable models.

    You may be able to get software RAID working through Intel Rapid Storage Technology but I'm not sure if it's possible.
