64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This portable PC supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most commonly supported processor operating mode on laptops that were released around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Fairly Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency

Portable PCs of this spec and age have on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies of between 750MHz and 1,300MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency is 950MHz. The Toshiba Z30t has one of the faster on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies (1,100 megahertz) amongst notebook PCs of this age.

Chart Edit

Quite Long Battery Life

With a battery life of 12 hours, the Toshiba Z30t has one of the longer battery lifes amongst medium processor core notebook PCs of this age. Across all the portable PCs of a similar age and spec to the Z30t the battery lifes range from 2.5h to 24h, and the average battery life is 8.6h.

If this medium processor core notebook PC battery life is not long enough for you then you might want to look at the Fujitsu Lifebook U745 (£458.80) (14h) which also has a higher rating.

1,600MHz Processor Memory Clock Speed

The Toshiba Z30t supports a 1,600MHz processor memory clock speed which is faster than most similar spec laptops that were released around the same time as it. Most notebook PCs that were released one year ago support a 133MHz processor memory clock speed. In addition, this notebook PC supports 1 and 333MHz processor memory clock speeds. The memory clock speeds supported by processor of all similar spec portable PCs that have been available for around the same time as the Z30t ranges from 133MHz (worst) to 1,866MHz (best).

Chart Edit

SSD Storage Medium

The Toshiba Z30t has an SSD storage medium which is better than the HDD storage medium found on most laptops of this spec and age. 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 in fact the best storage medium amongst all comparable spec notebook PCs that have been on the market for a similar time to the Z30t.

Amongst similar types of notebook PC the worst storage medium is HDD.

We compared all the other portable PCs that have an SSD storage media to this portable PC and we think the Stream 11, and the Stream 11 both from HP or the Acer Aspire S7 which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Intel Core I5 Processor Family

The Toshiba Z30t has an Intel Core i5 processor family which is better than the Intel Core i5-5xxx processor family found on most laptops of a similar age and spec to it. The best processor family of all similar spec portable PCs that have been around for a comparable time to the Z30t is Intel Core i7-4xxx and the worst is AMD E.

Chart Edit

Has a Front Camera

Like most of the other laptops of this age and type, the Toshiba Z30t has a front camera.

There are a number of alternative laptops with a front camera currently available which you might also want to consider including the HP Stream 11, or the DELL Inspiron 14 E7440 which has better reviews.

Has a Touch Sensitive Screen

The Toshiba Z30t has a touch sensitive screen, unlike most of the other laptops of a comparable age and type to the Z30t which do not have a touch sensitive screen.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other notebook PCs with a touch sensitive screen currently available including because of it's better review score, the Acer Aspire S7.

We think you might also be interested in alternative laptops which also have a touch sensitive screen including the Asus UX301LA (£490.00).

The Toshiba Z30t is one of the lighter laptops of this age and spec (only 1.4 kilograms) amongst medium processor core notebook PCs of this age.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 1.4kg heavy portable PCs currently available including because of it's better review score, the DELL Latitude 12 E7240 (£856.80), or the Lenovo X240 (£1,196.12).

Chart Edit

13 Reasons Against

A Bit Expensive

One person wrote in their reviews that it was not cheap. This year Notebookcheck.net wrote in their review of the Toshiba Z30t “Grainy image quality introduced by touchscreen diffusion filter, flimsy display lid, silly maintenance design for a business PC, subpar speakers, expensive when compared to some close competitors”.

Poor Product Quality

One Toshiba Z30t owner mentioned in their reviews that the Toshiba Z30t was not good quality.

Only Not Supported HD Type

The HD type of this laptop is Not supported, which is the most commonly found HD type on portable PCs of a comparable type and age to it.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency

The Toshiba Z30t has a quite slow on-board graphics adapter base frequency (only 200 megahertz) compared to most of the other portable PCs that are a similar age to the Z30t. Across all the medium processor core notebook PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as the Z30t the on-board graphics adapter base frequencies range from 100MHz to 650MHz.

Chart Edit

Very Small Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory

The average maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of notebook PCs that have been around for more than a year is 11GB. At only 1.74 gigabytes, the Toshiba Z30t has a fairly small maximum on-board graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other medium processor core notebook PCs that have been around for around the same time as the Z30t.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Full-Size Keyboard

The Toshiba Z30t does not have a full-size keyboard, unlike most of the other laptops of a similar spec and age to the Z30t.

There are a number of alternative laptops which also have a full-size keyboard that you might also want to consider including the Acer Aspire VN7, or the DELL Inspiron 14 E7440 which is also higher rated.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Quite Small Total Storage Capacity

Medium processor core notebook PCs that were released around the same time as the Z30t have total storage capacity of between 16GB and 2TB. The Toshiba Z30t has one of the smaller total storage capacity (only 128 gigabytes) amongst portable PCs of this age.

We compared this notebook PC to all the other 128GB total storage capacity notebook PCs and we think the DELL Latitude 12 7000 (£707.00) which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If this portable PC total storage capacity is too small for you then you might also want to consider the Toshiba Z30 (£1,349.99) (256GB and higher rated), or the Fujitsu Lifebook U745 (£458.80) (256GB and higher rated).

Read more Less Chart Edit

Quite Small Screen Size

The smallest screen size of medium processor core notebook PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as the Z30t is 11", the biggest is 18", and the average screen size is 15".

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 13.3" laptops currently available including the Toshiba Z30 (£1,349.99), or the Acer Aspire S7 which has better reviews.

If you would prefer a bigger screen size then you might want to look at the Fujitsu Lifebook U745 (£458.80) (14"), or the DELL Inspiron 14 E7440 (14") which is also higher rated.
