Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency

At only 200 megahertz, the Lenovo Z50-70 has a quite slow on-board graphics adapter base frequency compared to most of the other medium processor core notebook PCs that were released more than a year ago. Medium processor core notebook PCs that have been on the market for a comparable time to the Z50-70 have on-board graphics adapter base frequencies of between 100MHz and 650MHz.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory

Across all the medium processor core notebook PCs that have been on the market for more than a year the maximum on-board graphics adapter memories range from 1.7GB to 16GB, and the average maximum on-board graphics adapter memory is 11GB. With a maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of only 1.74 gigabytes, the Lenovo Z50-70 has a quite small maximum on-board graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other comparable spec notebook PCs that were released one year ago.

Chart Edit

Very Short Battery Life

The Lenovo Z50-70 has a fairly short battery life (only 5 hours) compared to most of the other portable PCs of this type and age. The battery lifes of laptops that have been on the market for a comparable time to the Z50-70 range from 2.5h to 24h.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 5h battery life notebook PCs currently available including the Asus S200E, the Lenovo IdeaPad Z50-70, or the Acer Aspire E5-573 which has better reviews.

If this medium processor core notebook PC battery life is not long enough for you then you might want to consider the B50-80 (£379.97) (5.5h and higher rated), the B50-70 (5.5h and higher rated), or the B50-80 (5.5h and higher rated) all from Lenovo.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow Processor Clock Speed

The Lenovo Z50-70 has one of the slower processor clock speeds (only 1.7 gigahertz) amongst similar spec laptops of this age. The slowest processor clock speed of notebook PCs that have been available for a similar time to the Z50-70 is 0.8GHz, the fastest is 3.3GHz, and the average processor clock speed is 2.2GHz.

We compared this laptop to all the other 1.7GHz processor clock speed laptops and we think the Satellite L50-C, and the L50-C (£269.00) both from Toshiba or the Lenovo G50-80 which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If you are looking for a notebook PC with a faster processor clock speed then you might want to consider the G50-80 (1.9GHz and higher rated), the G50-70 (1.9GHz and higher rated), or the E31-70 (£319.00) (1.9GHz and higher rated) all from Lenovo.
