17 Reasons For

Toshiba Laptops Have Good Reviews

Medium processor core laptops built by Toshiba have good reviews on average. We also checked the reviews for all portable PCs (not just medium processor core laptops) and found that Toshiba also has good reviews across its entire range.

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This laptop supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on medium processor core laptops that were released around the same time as it.

1920 X 1080 Pixels Display Resolution

The Toshiba Z30 has a maximum display resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. That's 98% more display resolution than a 1366 x 768 pixels notebook PC, which is the most common display resolution.

A 1920 x 1080 pixels display resolution is in fact the best display resolution amongst all portable PCs of a similar type and age to the Z30.

The worst display resolution amongst comparable types of notebook PC is 1024 x 768 pixels.

Quite Fast Processor Clock Speed

At 2.4 gigahertz, the Toshiba Z30 has a quite fast processor clock speed compared to most of the other comparable spec notebook PCs that were launched more than a year ago. The average processor clock speed of medium processor core laptops that have been on the market for around the same time as the Z30 is 2.2GHz, and the processor clock speeds range from 0.8GHz to 3.3GHz.

Alternative 2.4GHz processor clock speed portable PCs currently available that you might also want to consider include cheaper laptops such as the HP EliteBook 820.

Laptops with a faster processor clock speed that might be worth considering include the X250 ($1,600.00) (2.6GHz), or the T450 ($999.00) (2.6GHz) both from Lenovo which is also cheaper.

Fairly Long Battery Life

The Toshiba Z30 has one of the longer battery lifes (12 hours) amongst medium processor core laptops of this age. The shortest battery life of similar spec notebook PCs that have been around for more than a year is 2.5h, the longest is 33h, and the average battery life is 8.7h.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 12h battery life laptops currently available including the Portégé Z30-A, or the Portégé Z30-A both from Toshiba which is cheaper.

1,600MHz Processor Memory Clock Speed

The Toshiba Z30 supports a 1,600MHz processor memory clock speed which is faster than most medium processor core laptops that came out more than a year ago. Most comparable spec portable PCs that were released one year ago support a 133MHz processor memory clock speed. This Toshiba portable PC also supports 1 and 333MHz processor memory clock speeds. Medium processor core laptops that were released more than a year ago processor memory clock speeds range from 133MHz to 1,866MHz.

Chart Edit

SSD Storage Medium

The Toshiba Z30 has a better storage medium than most portable PCs of a similar spec and age to it. This laptop has an SSD storage medium, whereas most medium processor core laptops that were released one year ago have an HDD storage medium. Solid State Drives (SSD) store data in semiconductors on a circuit board rather than using magnetic or optical media. Solid State Drives have no moving parts which makes them very fast and reliable.

This notebook PC's storage medium (SSD) is actually the best storage medium across all laptops that have been around for a comparable time to the Z30.

The worst storage medium amongst similar types of notebook PC is HDD.

We compared this laptop to all the other notebook PCs that have an SSD storage media and we think cheaper laptops such as the T450 ($999.00), and the T450 ($999.00) both from Lenovo or the HP EliteBook 840 ($600.00) is also worth considering.

If you would prefer a portable PC with a better storage medium then you might want to consider the Toshiba Tecra Z50 (SSD).

Intel Core I7-5xxx Processor Family

The Toshiba Z30 has an Intel Core i7-5xxx processor family which is better than the Intel Core i5-5xxx processor family found on most medium processor core laptops that came out more than a year ago. Across all medium processor core laptops that are a comparable age to the Z30 the best processor family is Intel Core i7-3xxx and the worst is AMD E.

Chart Edit

Has a Front Camera

Like most of the other laptops that were released around the same time as the Z30, the Toshiba Z30 has a front camera.

It is worth considering alternative notebook PCs which also have a front camera including the Toshiba Z30, the HP EliteBook 850 ($1,199.00), or the Lenovo T450s ($1,299.99).

The weights of similar spec laptops that have been available for more than a year range from 940g to 3.8kg, and the average weight is 2kg. With a weight of only 1.2 kilograms, the Toshiba Z30's weight is one of the lightest amongst medium processor core laptops that are a comparable age to the Z30.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 1.2kg heavy notebook PCs currently available including the Portégé Z30-A, or the Portégé Z30-A both from Toshiba which is cheaper.

If you would consider a portable PC with a heavier weight then you might want to look at the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon ($1,128.57) (1.3kg) which is also cheaper.

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Full-Size Keyboard

The Toshiba Z30 does not have a full-size keyboard. Most of the other portable PCs of this spec and age do have a full-size keyboard.

Quite Small Screen Size

The screen sizes of medium processor core laptops that have been available for more than a year range from 10" to 18". With a screen size of only 13.3 inches, the Toshiba Z30 has one of the smaller screen sizes amongst comparable spec notebook PCs of this age.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other 13.3" laptops currently available including cheaper notebook PCs such as the Portégé Z30-A, or the Portégé Z30-A both from Toshiba or the Samsung ATIV Book 9 ($1,649.99).

If you want a notebook PC with a bigger screen size then you might also want to consider the T450 ($999.00) (14"), or the T450s (14") both from Lenovo or the HP Elitebook 1040 G2 (14") which is also cheaper.

Very Small Total Storage Capacity

The average total storage capacity of portable PCs of this type and age is 530GB. At only 256 gigabytes, the Toshiba Z30 has a fairly small total storage capacity compared to most of the other portable PCs of a comparable type and age to the Z30.

We compared all the other 256GB total storage capacity notebook PCs to this portable PC and we think the Lenovo ThinkPad X250 which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If you would prefer a bigger total storage capacity then you might also want to consider the X240 (500GB and cheaper), the X250 (500GB and cheaper), or the X240 (500GB and cheaper) all from Lenovo.
