Aaron gave an insightful answer, which I hope was helpful. For some reason,
I have this misconception, whereby the Tungsten will always have the
superior components when compared against the Zire (even if the Tungsten
model is at the cheaper end). Clearly my assumption was wrong. I hope I
wasn't causing confusion.
