Chart Edit

Quite Big Maximum Internal Memory Supported by Processor

With a maximum internal memory supported by processor of 32 gigabytes, the Lenovo L540 has one of the bigger maximum internal memory supported by processors amongst portable PCs of this age. Across all the similar spec portable PCs that have been available for around the same time as the L540 the maximum internal memory supported by processors range from 4GB to 32GB.

Chart Edit

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This portable PC supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many notebook PCs of this spec and age.

Chart Edit

Very New PCI Express Slot Version

The oldest PCI Express slot version of laptops that were launched around the same time as the L540 is 2, the newest is 3, and the average PCI Express slot version is 2.2. When compared to other portable PCs of this spec and age that we have assessed, the Lenovo L540's PCI Express slot version of 3 is one of the newest.

Chart Edit

Quite Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency

At 1,250 megahertz, the Lenovo L540 has a quite fast on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency compared to most of the other similar spec laptops that are a comparable age to the L540. The on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies of medium processor core notebook PCs that were released more than two years ago range from 660MHz to 1,300MHz.

Chart Edit

Good Brand

Chart

Quite Fast Processor Clock Speed

With a processor clock speed of 2.6 gigahertz, the Lenovo L540 has a quite fast processor clock speed compared to most of the other medium processor core notebook PCs that have been around for around the same time as the L540. The slowest processor clock speed of similar spec laptops that were released more than two years ago is 0.8GHz, the fastest is 3.1GHz, and the average processor clock speed is 2.1GHz.

We compared all the other 2.6GHz processor clock speed notebook PCs to this portable PC and we think cheaper laptops such as the DELL Latitude E6430[plb_1458173_price], and the HP H5E70ET[plb_1564690_price] is also worth considering.

If this notebook PC processor clock speed is too slow for you then you might want to consider the Latitude E6430[pl_2074749_price] (2.7GHz and cheaper), or the Latitude E6430[pl_2135897_price] (2.7GHz and cheaper) both from DELL or the HP ProBook 645 G1[plb_2055346_price] (2.7GHz and cheaper).

Laptops with a heavier weight that might also be worth considering include the Probook 650[pl_1584506_price] (2.5kg and cheaper), or the H5E70ET[pl_1564690_price] (2.5kg and cheaper) both from HP.

4 Other reasons to consider the Lenovo L540

Released Over Three Years Ago

This portable PC was released over three years ago.

Average Screen Size

The Lenovo L540 has a relatively typical screen size (15 inches) compared to most of the other medium processor core notebook PCs that have been around for more than two years.

It may also be worth considering one of the other 15" notebook PCs currently available including the Lenovo L540[plb_1622998_price] which is cheaper.

If you would prefer a bigger screen size then you might want to consider the Toshiba Satellite C55-B[plb_2529941_price] (15.6"), or the HP ProBook 450[plb_2350779_price] (15.6") which is also cheaper.

Average Total Storage Capacity

At 500 gigabytes, the Lenovo L540 has a fairly standard total storage capacity compared to most of the other laptops that have been on the market for more than two years.

Alternative 500GB total storage capacity laptops currently available which you might also want to look at include the Lenovo L540[plb_1622998_price], the DELL Latitude E6430[plb_1496333_price], or the HP 8470p[plb_1613025_price] which is cheaper.

If you want a laptop with a bigger total storage capacity then you might also want to consider the Inspiron 17[pl_2253142_price] (750GB and cheaper), the Inspiron 15[pl_2300892_price] (750GB and cheaper), or the Inspiron 15 3521[pl_2092624_price] (750GB and cheaper) all from DELL.

If you are looking for a laptop with a bigger internal memory then you might also want to consider the Inspiron 15 3521[pl_2190565_price] (6GB), or the Inspiron 15 3521[pl_2092624_price] (6GB) both from DELL or the Toshiba Satellite C55-B[plb_2529941_price] (6GB) which is also cheaper.
