7 Reasons For

Lenovo Has Good Reviews for Its Portable PCs

Lenovo laptops have good ratings on average and across all portable PCs Lenovo is one of the superior brands.

Two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports

Most of the other laptops of this age and spec only have one USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port, however the Lenovo E550 has two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.

Chart Edit

Has a Front Camera

The Lenovo E550 has a front camera. Most of the other laptops that have been around for a comparable time to the E550 also have a front camera.

Chart Edit

Has a Full-Size Keyboard

The Lenovo E550 has a full-size keyboard, as do most of the other comparable spec notebook PCs that were released around the same time as the E550.

We think you might also be interested in other portable PCs which also have a full-size keyboard including the Lenovo G50-45[plb_2891844_price].

Quite Big Total Storage Capacity

The total storage capacity of laptops that have been on the market for more than a year range from 16GB to 1TB. The Lenovo E550 has a fairly big total storage capacity (1,000 gigabyte) compared to most of the other laptops that were launched around the same time as the E550.

We compared this notebook PC to all the other 1TB total storage capacity laptops and we think because of it's better review score, the Lenovo G710[plb_2939802_price] is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Quite Big Internal Memory

The Lenovo E550 has one of the bigger internal memory (8 gigabytes) amongst laptops of this age. The internal memory of laptops of this type and age range from 4GB to 8GB, and the average internal memory is 5.3GB.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other 8GB internal memory portable PCs currently available including the Lenovo G710[plb_2939802_price] which has better reviews.

Two USB 3.0 Ports

The Lenovo E550 is a two USB 3.0 port notebook PC. Most of the other portable PCs of a comparable age and type to the E550 only have one USB 3.0 port.

Chart Edit

1 Reason Against

Does Not Have a Touch Sensitive Screen

Like most of the other notebook PCs of this spec and age, the Lenovo E550 does not have a touch sensitive screen.

Chart Edit

5 Other reasons to consider the Lenovo E550

Average Screen Size

The Lenovo E550 has a relatively average screen size (15.6 inches) compared to most of the other similar spec portable PCs that were launched around the same time as the E550.

If you are looking for a bigger screen size then you might want to consider the Lenovo G710[plb_2939802_price] (17.3") which also has a higher rating.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Intel Core I7-5xxx Processor Family

The Lenovo E550 has an Intel Core i7-5xxx processor family which is better than most laptops of this type and age. Most notebook PCs that were released one year ago have an Intel Core i7 processor family.

Chart Edit

Average Battery Life

The Lenovo E550 has a fairly average battery life (9 hours) compared to most of the other laptops that have been around for a similar time to the E550.

Chart Edit

Average Weight

At 2.4 kilograms, the Lenovo E550 has a pretty typical weight compared to most of the other laptops that have been available for a similar time to the E550.

Notebook PCs with a heavier weight that might also be worth considering include the G50-45[pl_2891844_price] (2.5kg), or the E550[pl_2936608_price] (2.4kg) both from Lenovo.

Read more Less Chart Edit

HDD Storage Medium

This portable PC has an HDD storage medium, which is typical of many comparable spec laptops that are a similar age to it. 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.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other laptops that have an HDD storage media currently available including because of it's better review score, the Lenovo G710[plb_2939802_price].
