13 Reasons For

Good Brand

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

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This portable PC supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many medium processor core notebook PCs that are a similar age to it.

Chart Edit

Quite Fast Processor Clock Speed

The slowest processor clock speed of notebook PCs of a similar spec and age to the Z40 is 0.8GHz, the fastest is 3.3GHz, and the average processor clock speed is 2.2GHz. With a processor clock speed of 2.6 gigahertz, the Toshiba Z40 has one of the faster processor clock speeds amongst medium processor core notebook PCs of this age.

We compared all the other 2.6GHz processor clock speed portable PCs to this portable PC and we think a cheaper portable PC such as the ThinkPad T450, and the X250 (£1,049.00) both from Lenovo or you might consider a better rated portable PC such as the Toshiba Z30 (£1,549.99) are also worth considering.

1,600MHz Processor Memory Clock Speed

The Toshiba Z40 supports a 1,600MHz processor memory clock speed which is faster than the 133MHz processor memory clock speed supported by most similar spec notebook PCs that were released more than a year ago. In addition, this notebook PC supports 1 and 333MHz processor memory clock speeds. Across all laptops of this age and type the memory clock speeds supported by processor ranges from 133MHz to 1,866MHz.

Chart Edit

SSD Storage Medium

The Toshiba Z40 has an SSD storage medium which is better than the HDD storage medium found on most medium processor core notebook PCs that have been around for around the same time as 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 portable PC's storage medium (SSD) is actually the best storage medium amongst all laptops of this type and age.

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

Other portable PCs that have an SSD storage media currently available that you might also want to consider include the T450 (£1,042.78), or the T450 (£1,042.78) both from Lenovo or the Toshiba Tecra Z40 which is cheaper.

If the storage medium of this portable PC is too bad for you then you might want to look at the Toshiba Tecra Z50 (£1,529.99) (SSD).

Intel Core I7-5xxx Processor Family

The Toshiba Z40 has an Intel Core i7-5xxx processor family which is better than the Intel Core i5-5xxx processor family found on most laptops of a similar type and age to it. Across all comparable spec notebook PCs that have been on the market for a similar time to the Z40 the worst processor family is AMD E and the best is Intel Core i7-4xxx.

Chart Edit

Has a Front Camera

The Toshiba Z40 has a front camera. Most of the other similar spec laptops that have been available for a comparable time to the Z40 also have a front camera.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other portable PCs with a front camera currently available including because of it's better review score, the Lenovo X240 (£1,196.12).

We compared all the other laptops which also have a front camera to this notebook PC and we think the Toshiba Portégé Z30-A, or the Fujitsu Lifebook U745 (£870.00) is also worth considering.

The slowest maximum turbo frequency of notebook PCs of a comparable age and spec to the Z40 is 1.8GHz, the fastest is 3.7GHz, and the average maximum turbo frequency is 2.9GHz.

Chart Edit

802.11n WiFi Standard

This laptop has an 802.11a|802.11ac|802.11g|802.11n WiFi standard, which is typical of many medium processor core notebook PCs that came out more than a year ago.

The front camera resolutions of medium processor core notebook PCs that are a similar age to the Z40 range from 0.3MP to 2MP, and the average front camera resolution is 1MP. The Toshiba Z40 has one of the higher front camera resolutions (2 megapixels) amongst medium processor core notebook PCs of this age.

Chart Edit

9 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Full-Size Keyboard

The Toshiba Z40 does not have a full-size keyboard, unlike most of the other notebook PCs that are a comparable age to the Z40 which have a full-size keyboard.

We think you might also be interested in other portable PCs which also have a full-size keyboard including the Lenovo X250 (£420.00); or the Lenovo X240 (£1,196.12).

After checking the price of 306 portable PCs of this type and age they range in price from £149 to £3,405. We think that this portable PC looks expensive compared to other portable PCs of this type and age.

Quite Small Screen Size

The Toshiba Z40 has one of the smaller screen sizes (only 14 inches) amongst medium processor core notebook PCs of this age. The screen sizes of laptops that are a comparable age to the Z40 range from 11" to 18".

We compared this notebook PC to all the other 14" notebook PCs and we think cheaper portable PCs such as the DELL Latitude 14 E7450 (£646.26), the Lenovo ThinkPad T450, and the Toshiba Tecra Z40 is also worth considering.

Does Not Have a Touch Sensitive Screen

The Toshiba Z40 does not have a touch sensitive screen, although this is within the context that most of the other similar spec notebook PCs that are a comparable age to the Z40 also do not have a touch sensitive screen.

We think you might also be interested in other laptops which also have a touch sensitive screen including the Lenovo X250 (£420.00) which is also cheaper.

4 Other reasons to consider the Toshiba Z40

Released Over a Year Ago

This Toshiba laptop was released over a year ago.

Average Internal Memory

With an internal memory of 8 gigabytes, the Toshiba Z40 has a pretty average internal memory compared to most of the other notebook PCs of a similar type and age to the Z40.

Other 8GB internal memory portable PCs currently available which you might also want to look at include the Asus UX303UB which has better reviews; or the Lenovo X250 (£420.00) which is cheaper.

If this portable PC internal memory is not big enough for you then you might also want to look at the Lenovo T450s (£982.61) (12GB) which is also cheaper.
