Laptop Option Sept 2014

After considering our requirements, we have decided not to proceed with using Aftershock PC as a base for our operating system.

We offer the Toshiba Portege z930 and Z30 model due to their low weight, high portability and SSD option.

The Z930 is 1.12 kg and is one of the world’s lightest ultrabooks. This maximises portability with a relatively decent battery life. The Z30 has almost identical chassis but is slightly heavier and thicker. It offers a longer battery life and slightly more firepower.


Z930: 1595 SGD (at time of writing, may be less, please check for latest prices.)
Z30:   1720 SGD (at time of writing, may be less, please check for latest prices.)
Ram/HD upgrade available.
Installation of Microsoft Office (under WINE) also available.
