1,600MHz Processor Memory Clock Speed
The HP EliteBook 850 G1 supports a 1,600MHz processor memory clock speed which is faster than most notebook PCs of a comparable age and type to it. Most medium processor core laptops that came out around the same time as it support a 133MHz processor memory clock speed.
A 1,600MHz processor memory clock speed is actually the best supported memory clock speeds supported by processor across all portable PCs of a similar type and age to the EliteBook 850 G1.
Across similar types of laptop the worst supported memory clock speeds supported by processor is 133MHz.
SSD Storage Medium
The EliteBook 850 G1 has an SSD storage medium which is better than most medium processor core laptops that have been available for around the same time as it. Most notebook PCs of this age and type have an HDD storage medium. Solid State Drives (SSD) store data in semiconductors on a circuit board rather than using magnetic or optical media. Solid State Drives have no moving parts which makes them very fast and reliable.
An SSD storage medium is actually the best storage medium amongst all portable PCs of this age and spec.
An HDD storage medium is the worst storage medium amongst similar types of laptop.
Laptops with a better storage medium that might also be worth looking at include the DELL XPS 13 (£1,199.99) (SSD).
