+15 More reasons for
SSD Storage Medium
The Toshiba Portégé Z30t-B has an SSD storage medium which is better than the HDD storage medium found on most notebook PCs that are a similar age to it. 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 in fact the best storage medium across all laptops that have been on the market for more than a year.
An HDD storage medium is the worst storage medium amongst comparable types of notebook PC.
If you are looking for a notebook PC with a better storage medium then you might also want to consider the Elitebook 820 G2 (£750.00) (SSD), or the EliteBook 820 G2 (£778.63) (SSD) both from HP.

802.11n WiFi Standard
This laptop has an 802.11a|802.11ac|802.11b|802.11g|802.11n WiFi standard, which is typical of many medium processor core notebook PCs that were released around the same time as it.
L3 Processor Cache
This notebook PC has a L3 processor cache, which is the most commonly found processor cache on comparable spec laptops that are a similar age to it.
Very High Front Camera Resolution
When compared to other notebook PCs of a comparable age and spec to the Portégé Z30t-B that we have assessed the front camera resolution of, the Toshiba Portégé Z30t-B's front camera resolution of 2 megapixels is one of the highest. The lowest front camera resolution of medium processor core notebook PCs that were released around the same time as the Portégé Z30t-B is 0.3MP, the highest is 2MP, and the average front camera resolution is 1MP.
Has a Touch Sensitive Screen
The Portégé Z30t-B has a touch sensitive screen, unlike most of the other similar spec laptops that are a comparable age to the Portégé Z30t-B which do not have a touch sensitive screen.
Three USB 3.0 Ports
The Portégé Z30t-B is a three USB 3.0 port notebook PC.
Windows 8 Optional Operating System
This portable PC has a Windows 8.1 Pro optional operating system, which is typical of many medium processor core notebook PCs that have been available for around the same time as it.
1.4 HDMI Version
This notebook PC has a 1.4 HDMI version, which is the most frequently found HDMI version on medium processor core notebook PCs that were released around the same time as it.
AC Cable Included
This laptop has an AC cable included, which is the most commonly found cable included on notebook PCs that have been available for a comparable time to it.
2x SO-DIMM Memory Slot
This portable PC has a 2x SO-DIMM memory slot, which is typical of many portable PCs of this age and type.
The weights of portable PCs of a similar age and spec to the Portégé Z30t-B range from 940g to 3.8kg, and the average weight is 2kg. With a weight of only 1.4 kilograms, the Portégé Z30t-B is fairly light compared to most of the other similar spec portable PCs that have been on the market for a comparable time to the Portégé Z30t-B.
At only 316 millimeters, the Portégé Z30t-B is quite narrow compared to most of the other medium processor core notebook PCs that were released around the same time as the Portégé Z30t-B. Across all the similar spec laptops that are a comparable age to the Portégé Z30t-B the widths range from 28mm to 430mm.
4 Reasons Against
Very Small Total Storage Capacity
The Portégé Z30t-B has one of the smaller total storage capacity (only 128 gigabytes) amongst medium processor core notebook PCs of this age. The average total storage capacity of laptops of a similar age and spec to the Portégé Z30t-B is 550GB, and the total storage capacity range from 16GB to 2TB.
If you want a bigger total storage capacity then you might want to look at the HP EliteBook 820 (£327.00) (180GB).
Quite Small Screen Size
The smallest screen size of medium processor core notebook PCs that are a similar age to the Portégé Z30t-B is 11" and the biggest is 18". The Portégé Z30t-B has a quite small screen size (only 13.3 inches) compared to most of the other medium processor core notebook PCs that have been on the market for a similar time to the Portégé Z30t-B.
We compared this portable PC to all the other 13.3" portable PCs and we think the HP Stream 13 which has better reviews is also worth considering.
The Portégé Z30t-B is a 128 gigabytes solid-state drive capacity notebook PC. Most of the other portable PCs of a similar type and age to the Portégé Z30t-B have between 8 and 999 solid-state drive capacity.
