18 Reasons For

Toshiba Has Good Reviews for Its Laptops

We calculated the average ratings for all Toshiba notebook PCs and also specifically for Toshiba medium processor core notebook PCs and found that in both cases Toshiba had good ratings compared to other manufacturers.

1,600MHz Processor Memory Clock Speed

The Satellite Z30 supports a 1,600MHz processor memory clock speed which is faster than the 133MHz processor memory clock speed supported by most medium processor core notebook PCs that have been around for around the same time as it. In addition, this portable PC supports 1 and 333MHz processor memory clock speeds. Across all laptops of this age and type the best memory clock speeds supported by processor is 1,866MHz and the worst is 133MHz.

SSD Storage Medium

The Satellite Z30 has an SSD storage medium which is better than the HDD storage medium found on most portable PCs that came out more than a year ago. 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 amongst all notebook PCs that are a comparable age to the Satellite Z30.

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

Notebook PCs with a better storage medium that might also be worth considering include the Elitebook 820 G2 (£750.00) (SSD), or the EliteBook 820 G2 (£770.12) (SSD) both from HP.

We compared this portable PC to all the other 13.3" laptops and we think because of it's better review score, the DELL Latitude 13 3340 (£358.80) is also worth considering.

If you are looking for a bigger screen size then you might want to look at the Lenovo L450 (£890.10) (14"), or the Toshiba Z40 (14").
