Quite Fast Processor Clock Speed

The average processor clock speed of similar spec notebook PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as the Y50 is 2.2GHz, and the processor clock speeds range from 1GHz to 3GHz. The Lenovo Y50 has one of the faster processor clock speeds (2.5 gigahertz) amongst notebook PCs of this age.

The worst storage medium across comparable types of notebook PC is HDD.

If the storage medium of this many processor core laptop is too bad for you then you might also want to look at the ZBook 15[pl_1632630_price] (SSD and cheaper), the ZBook 17[pl_2036831_price] (SSD and cheaper), or the ZBook 15[pl_2156059_price] (SSD and cheaper) all from HP.
