17 Reasons For

Good Brand

Toshiba has good average ratings for its medium processor core notebook PCs as well as across its entire laptop range compared to other manufacturers.

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This portable PC supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many medium processor core notebook PCs that have been on the market for more than two years.

Chart Edit

Three USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports

The Satellite Z30 is a three USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port laptop. Most of the other comparable spec laptops that are a similar age to the Satellite Z30 have between one and four USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.

Chart Edit

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 comparable spec laptops that are a similar age to it. This notebook PC also supports 1 and 333MHz processor memory clock speeds.

This portable PC's memory clock speeds supported by processor (1,600MHz) is actually the best supported memory clock speeds supported by processor across all portable PCs of this spec and age.

A 133MHz processor memory clock speed is the worst supported memory clock speeds supported by processor amongst comparable types of portable PC.

Fairly Long Battery Life

At 12 hours, the Satellite Z30 has a quite long battery life compared to most of the other medium processor core notebook PCs that have been around for more than two years. Across all the medium processor core notebook PCs that came out around the same time as the Satellite Z30 the battery lifes range from 2h to 4,400h.

If this portable PC battery life is too short for you then you might want to consider the EliteBook 820 (13.25h), or the EliteBook 820 (13.25h) both from HP.

Quite Big Internal Memory

With an internal memory of 8 gigabytes, the Toshiba Satellite Z30 has one of the bigger internal memory amongst medium processor core notebook PCs of this age. The internal memory of notebook PCs that have been available for around the same time as the Satellite Z30 range from 1GB to 16GB.

Other 8GB internal memory notebook PCs currently available which you might want to look at include the Lenovo X1 Carbon which is cheaper.

SSD Storage Medium

The Satellite Z30 has an SSD storage medium which is better than the HDD storage medium found on most notebook PCs of this age and type. 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.

An SSD storage medium is actually the best storage medium amongst all medium processor core notebook PCs that were launched around the same time as the Satellite Z30.

An HDD storage medium is the worst storage medium amongst comparable types of portable PC.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other notebook PCs that have an SSD storage media currently available including cheaper laptops such as the X1 Carbon, or the X1 Carbon both from Lenovo.

If the storage medium of this notebook PC is not good enough for you then you might also want to consider the Lenovo T420s (£1,388.87) (SSD), or the HP EliteBook 850 (SSD).

Has a Front Camera

The Satellite Z30 has a front camera. Most of the other portable PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as the Satellite Z30 also have a front camera.

Alternative laptops with a front camera currently available which you might want to look at include the Lenovo X1 Carbon which is cheaper.

We think you might also be interested in other portable PCs which also have a front camera including the Portégé Z30-A (£1,193.99), or the Portégé Z30-A both from Toshiba.

12 Reasons Against

Very Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency

At only 200 megahertz, the Toshiba Satellite Z30 has a fairly slow on-board graphics adapter base frequency compared to most of the other similar spec notebook PCs that are a comparable age to the Satellite Z30. The slowest on-board graphics adapter base frequency of medium processor core notebook PCs that have been on the market for a similar time to the Satellite Z30 is 200MHz and the fastest is 650MHz.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency

Medium processor core notebook PCs that are a comparable age to the Satellite Z30 have on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies of between 660MHz and 1,300MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency is 1,100MHz. With an on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of only 1,000 megahertz, the Satellite Z30 has one of the slower on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies amongst laptops of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Small Total Storage Capacity

Notebook PCs of this type and age have total storage capacity of between 1GB and 1.5TB, and the average total storage capacity is 520GB. With a total storage capacity of only 128 gigabytes, the Satellite Z30 has one of the smaller total storage capacity amongst medium processor core notebook PCs of this age.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 128GB total storage capacity portable PCs currently available including cheaper notebook PCs such as the DELL XPS 13.

If you want a bigger total storage capacity then you might also want to look at the EliteBook 820 (180GB), or the EliteBook 820 (180GB) both from HP or the Toshiba Portege Z30 (256GB).

Does Not Have a Full-Size Keyboard

The Satellite Z30 does not have a full-size keyboard, unlike most of the other medium processor core notebook PCs that have been available for a similar time to the Satellite Z30 which have a full-size keyboard.

We compared all the other laptops which also have a full-size keyboard to this laptop and we think the Portégé Z30-A, or the Portégé Z30-A (£1,193.99) both from Toshiba or the Lenovo ThinkPad X240 is also worth considering.

Quite Small Screen Size

The Satellite Z30 has one of the smaller screen sizes (only 13.3 inches) amongst medium processor core notebook PCs of this age. The smallest screen size of portable PCs that have been on the market for a similar time to the Satellite Z30 is 10" and the biggest is 18".

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 13.3" laptops currently available including cheaper portable PCs such as the DELL XPS 13.

If this medium processor core notebook PC screen size is too small for you then you might want to look at the Tecra Z40 (14"), or the TECRA Z40 (14") both from Toshiba or the HP ProBook 440 (14") which is also cheaper.

Quite Slow Processor Clock Speed

The slowest processor clock speed of portable PCs of this type and age is 0.8GHz, the fastest is 3.1GHz, and the average processor clock speed is 2.1GHz. The Satellite Z30 has a fairly slow processor clock speed (only 1.6 gigahertz) compared to most of the other medium processor core notebook PCs that were released more than two years ago.

If you would prefer a faster processor clock speed then you might want to look at the DELL XPS 13 (1.7GHz) which also has a higher rating.
