At 650 megahertz, the Toshiba Z930 has a very fast on-board graphics adapter base frequency compared to most of the other ultrabooks that have been available for a comparable time to the Z930. The slowest on-board graphics adapter base frequency of portable PCs of this age and type is 200MHz, the fastest is 650MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter base frequency is 290MHz.

Chart Edit

Very Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency

At 1,200 megahertz, the Toshiba Z930 has a very fast on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency compared to most of the other notebook PCs that have been on the market for more than two years. Across all the portable PCs of a comparable spec and age to the Z930 the on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies range from 800MHz to 1,300MHz.

Chart Edit

Has a Front Camera

The Toshiba Z930 has a front camera. Most of the other comparable spec portable PCs that were released more than two years ago also have a front camera.

Chart Edit

SSD Storage Medium

This laptop has an SSD storage medium, which is the most commonly found storage medium on ultrabooks that have been on the market for a comparable time 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.

If the storage medium of this Toshiba portable PC is too bad for you then you might want to consider the Lenovo X1 Carbon (£697.00) (SSD).
