13 Reasons For

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This portable PC supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on many processor core portable PCs that have been on the market for a similar time to it.

Chart Edit

16 PCI Express Lanes (max)

Most of the other many processor core portable PCs that came out around the same time as the Y50 only have between 1 and 15 PCI Express lanes (max), however the Lenovo Y50 has 16 PCI Express lanes (max).

Chart Edit

Good Brand

Lenovo has good average ratings for its many processor core portable PCs as well as across its entire portable PC range compared to other brands.

Fairly Big Internal Memory

The average internal memory of many processor core portable PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as the Y50 is 8.4GB. At 16 gigabytes, the Lenovo Y50 has a quite big internal memory compared to most of the other notebook PCs of a similar age and spec to the Y50.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative 16GB internal memory notebook PCs currently available including the XPS 15 (£1,426.98), or the Precision M4800 (£1,500.33) both from DELL which is cheaper.

If you want a bigger internal memory then you might want to look at the HP ZBook 17 G2 (32GB).

1,600MHz Processor Memory Clock Speed

The Lenovo Y50 supports a faster memory clock speeds supported by processor than most notebook PCs of this age and spec. This Lenovo portable PC supports a 1,600MHz processor memory clock speed, whereas most many processor core portable PCs that came out around the same time as it support a 133MHz processor memory clock speed. In addition, this portable PC supports 1 and 333MHz processor memory clock speeds. The worst memory clock speeds supported by processor of all many processor core portable PCs that were launched more than a year ago is 133MHz and the best is 1,866MHz.

Chart Edit

SSD Storage Medium

The Lenovo Y50 has an SSD storage medium which is better than most notebook PCs of this age and type. Most many processor core portable PCs that have been around for around the same time as it 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 in fact the best storage medium amongst all many processor core portable PCs that were released around the same time as the Y50.

Amongst comparable types of notebook PC the worst storage medium is HDD.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other laptops that have an SSD storage media currently available including a cheaper laptop such as the Precision M4800 (£1,500.33), or the Precision M4800 (£1,500.33) both from DELL or you might consider a higher scoring laptop such as the Pro (£806.00), or the Pro (£806.00) both from HP.

If the storage medium of this many processor core laptop is not good enough for you then you might want to consider the HP Omen (SSD).
