Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency
The slowest on-board graphics adapter base frequency of medium processor core notebook PCs that have been around for around the same time as the P550LAV is 100MHz, the fastest is 650MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter base frequency is 290MHz. The P550LAV has one of the slower on-board graphics adapter base frequencies (only 200 megahertz) amongst portable PCs of this age.
Quite Small Internal Memory
The smallest internal memory of medium processor core notebook PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as the P550LAV is 2GB, the biggest is 16GB, and the average internal memory is 6.3GB. When compared to other medium processor core notebook PCs that are a similar age to the P550LAV that we have assessed, the P550LAV's internal memory of only 2 gigabytes is one of the smallest.
There are a number of other 2GB internal memory laptops currently available that you might want to consider including because of it's better review score, the Stream 13-c025na[pl_2932886_price], or the 240 G3[pl_2975405_price] both from HP or the Acer Aspire ES1-111m[plb_2567084_price].
Notebook PCs with a bigger internal memory that might also be worth looking at include the B50-80[pl_3812194_price] (4GB), the G50-70[pl_3089734_price] (4GB), or the B50-45[pl_3152168_price] (4GB) all from Lenovo which also has a higher rating.
Does Not Have a Full-Size Keyboard
The P550LAV does not have a full-size keyboard. Most of the other comparable spec notebook PCs that were released around the same time as the P550LAV do have a full-size keyboard.
This notebook PC has an HDD storage medium, which is typical of many similar spec notebook PCs that were released more than a year ago. HDD is a traditional storage drive which stores the information on magnetic disks. HDD drives are slower than other forms of storage such as solid state drives (SSD) and flash drives.
Alternative notebook PCs that have an HDD storage media currently available which you might want to look at include the Asus S200E[plb_1537972_price], the Acer Extensa EX2508[plb_2927460_price], or the HP Probook 470 G2[plb_2925949_price] which has better reviews.
Across all the portable PCs of a similar age and spec to the P550LAV the processor clock speeds range from 0.8GHz to 3.3GHz. At only 1.7 gigahertz, the P550LAV has a fairly slow processor clock speed compared to most of the other medium processor core notebook PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as the P550LAV.
We compared this laptop to all the other 1.7GHz processor clock speed notebook PCs and we think the G50-80[pl_2829734_price], and the U330 Touch[pl_2965595_price] both from Lenovo or the Acer Travelmate TMP257-M[plb_2945508_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.
If this laptop processor clock speed is not fast enough for you then you might want to consider the G50-80[pl_3258707_price] (1.9GHz), the G70-80[pl_3737542_price] (1.9GHz), or the G50-70[pl_3702325_price] (1.9GHz) all from Lenovo which also has a higher rating.

We think you might also be interested in other laptops which also have a touch sensitive screen including the Latitude 15 5000[pl_2804843_price], or the Latitude 12 7000[pl_2867641_price] both from DELL or the Asus S200E[plb_1537972_price] which also has a higher rating.
