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...
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 it’s not supported.
