Both the 20-inch ZX4300 and 23-inch ZX6900 lines feature computers with full HD, widescreen Ultrabright LCD touch displays with a contrast ratio of 1000:1. Other similarities include Windows 7 Home Premium, 4GB of DDR3 memory, 640GB SATA hard drive, 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi, 10/100/1000 Gigabit LAN, a multi-in-one card reader, stereo speakers and six USB 2.0 ports (2 side, 4 rear).
