Most medium processor core notebook PCs that were released one year ago support a 133MHz processor memory clock speed. This notebook PC also supports 1 and 333MHz processor memory clock speeds. Across all notebook PCs of a similar type and age to the 350 G2 the memory clock speeds supported by processor ranges from 133MHz to 1,866MHz.
+7 More reasons for
Fairly Big Screen Size
The HP 350 G2 has one of the bigger screen sizes (15.6 inches) amongst medium processor core notebook PCs of this age. The smallest screen size of similar spec laptops that were released more than a year ago is 11", the biggest is 18", and the average screen size is 15".
Notebook PCs with a bigger screen size that might be worth considering include the Acer Aspire E5-772[plb_2984402_price] (17.3"), or the Lenovo Z70-80[plb_3429896_price] (17.3").
Has a Full-Size Keyboard
The HP 350 G2 has a full-size keyboard, as do most of the other laptops of this spec and age.
It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative laptops with a full-size keyboard currently available including the HP 250 G4[plb_3099702_price] which is cheaper.
There are a number of alternative portable PCs which also have a full-size keyboard which you might want to consider including the HP Probook 430 G2[plb_2913674_price], or the Toshiba Satellite Z30[plb_2717447_price].
Has a Front Camera
The HP 350 G2 has a front camera. Most of the other portable PCs of this spec and age also have a front camera.
We compared this portable PC to all the other notebook PCs with a front camera and we think the HP 250 G4[plb_3099702_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.
This laptop has a L3 processor cache, which is the most commonly found processor cache on notebook PCs that came out around the same time as it.
802.11n WiFi Standard
This portable PC has an 802.11b|802.11g|802.11n WiFi standard, which is the most frequently found WiFi standard on notebook PCs of this spec and age.
2x SO-DIMM Memory Slot
This portable PC has a 2x SO-DIMM memory slot, which is typical of many medium processor core notebook PCs that are a comparable age to it.
10 Reasons Against
Only Not Supported HD Type
The HD type of this notebook PC is Not supported, which is the most frequently found HD type on laptops of this type and age.
Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
With an on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of only 900 megahertz, the HP 350 G2 has one of the slower on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies amongst portable PCs of this age. The slowest on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of similar spec laptops that have been on the market for more than a year is 750MHz, the fastest is 1,300MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency is 950MHz.
Only HDD Storage Medium
This portable PC has an HDD storage medium, which is typical of many laptops of this spec and age. 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.
Other portable PCs that have an HDD storage media currently available that you might want to look at include cheaper notebook PCs such as the Acer Aspire E5-573[plb_2987233_price].
Portable PCs with a better storage medium that might also be worth considering include the HP EliteBook 820[plb_2735219_price] (SSD and cheaper).
Only 1366 X 768 Pixels Display Resolution
This notebook PC has a display resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels, which is the most frequently found display resolution on medium processor core notebook PCs that have been available for around the same time as it.
+7 More reasons against
Very Small Internal Memory
The average internal memory of laptops of this age and type is 6.3GB, and the internal memory range from 2GB to 16GB. The HP 350 G2 has a fairly small internal memory (only 4 gigabytes) compared to most of the other medium processor core notebook PCs that were released one year ago.
We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 4GB internal memory notebook PCs currently available including cheaper portable PCs such as the Lenovo ThinkPad E550[plb_2741911_price].
If you are looking for a laptop with a bigger internal memory then you might want to look at the HP EliteBook 820 G2[plb_2897415_price] (8GB) which is also cheaper.
Only Intel Core I3-5xxx Processor Family
The HP 350 G2 has an Intel Core i3-5xxx processor family which is better than the Intel Core i5-5xxx processor family found on most portable PCs of this type and age. Across all comparable spec notebook PCs that are a similar age to the 350 G2 the worst processor family is AMD E and the best is Intel Core i7-4xxx.
Does Not Have a Touch Sensitive Screen
Most medium processor core notebook PCs that are a similar age to the 350 G2 do not have a touch sensitive screen. The HP 350 G2 is no exception to this as it too does not have a touch sensitive screen.
There are a number of other notebook PCs which also have a touch sensitive screen which you might want to look at including the DELL Inspiron 15 5558[plb_3008314_price].
Quite Small Maximum Internal Memory
The average maximum internal memory of comparable spec laptops that have been on the market for more than a year is 14GB. At only 8 gigabytes, the HP 350 G2 has a fairly small maximum internal memory compared to most of the other similar spec portable PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as the 350 G2.
Quite Small Hard Drive Capacity
At only 500 gigabytes, the HP 350 G2 has a fairly small hard drive capacity compared to most of the other laptops that are a comparable age to the 350 G2. The smallest hard drive capacity of comparable spec notebook PCs that have been around for a similar time to the 350 G2 is 5GB, the biggest is 2TB, and the average hard drive capacity is 690GB.
Only 4 Bluetooth Version
This notebook PC supports a 4 Bluetooth version, which is the most commonly supported Bluetooth version on medium processor core notebook PCs that came out more than a year ago.
4 Other reasons to consider the HP 350 G2
Released Over a Year Ago
This medium processor core notebook PC was released over a year ago.
Average Processor Clock Speed
At 2.1 gigahertz, the HP 350 G2 has a pretty typical processor clock speed compared to most of the other medium processor core notebook PCs that were launched more than a year ago.
Laptops with a faster processor clock speed that might be worth looking at include the Ideapad 100-15IBY[pl_2913580_price] (2.16GHz), or the B50-80[pl_3812194_price] (2.2GHz) both from Lenovo or the HP EliteBook 840 G2[plb_2941676_price] (2.2GHz) which is also cheaper.
Average Total Storage Capacity
The HP 350 G2 has a relatively average total storage capacity (500 gigabytes) compared to most of the other laptops that are a similar age to the 350 G2.
If this HP portable PC total storage capacity is not big enough for you then you might want to look at the Toshiba L50-C[plb_2943817_price] (1TB and cheaper).
