Chart Edit

Only Two SATA III Connectors

The Toshiba R50 is a two SATA III connector laptop.

Very Small Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory

The average maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of medium processor core notebook PCs that have been around for a comparable time to the R50 is 11GB. With a maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of only 2 gigabytes, the Toshiba R50 has one of the smaller maximum on-board graphics adapter memories amongst laptops of this age.

Chart Edit

Only HDD Storage Medium

This notebook PC has an HDD storage medium, which is typical of many similar spec portable PCs that were released more than a year ago. 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 the Asus X555LA[plb_2947144_price], or the DELL Vostro 15[plb_2876193_price] which is cheaper.

If the storage medium of this notebook PC is too bad for you then you might also want to look at the Toshiba Z40[plb_2984397_price] (SSD and cheaper).

Quite Slow Processor Clock Speed

At only 1.7 gigahertz, the Toshiba R50 has a quite slow processor clock speed compared to most of the other medium processor core notebook PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as the R50.

There are a number of alternative 1.7GHz processor clock speed portable PCs currently available that you might also want to look at including cheaper notebook PCs such as the Acer Aspire E5-571[plb_2680097_price], or the HP Elitebook 820 G1[plb_2898921_price].

If you want a notebook PC with a faster processor clock speed then you might want to look at the DELL Inspiron 14 3440[plb_3015996_price] (1.9GHz and higher rated); or the Lenovo E31-70[plb_3305792_price] (1.9GHz and cheaper).

Across all the medium processor core notebook PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as the R50 the internal memory range from 2GB to 16GB.

If you are looking for a portable PC with a bigger internal memory then you might want to look at the HP EliteBook 840 G2[plb_2960381_price] (8GB) which is also cheaper.

5 Other reasons to consider the Toshiba R50

Average Screen Size

With a screen size of 15.6 inches, the Toshiba R50 has a fairly average screen size compared to most of the other medium processor core notebook PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as the R50.

Other 15.6" portable PCs currently available that you might also want to consider include cheaper laptops such as the Inspiron 15[pl_2790626_price], or the Latitude 15[pl_2749075_price] both from DELL or the Toshiba R50[plb_2917556_price].

If you are looking for a notebook PC with a bigger screen size then you might also want to look at the DELL Inspiron 17 5758[plb_2942103_price] (17.3" and cheaper), or the Lenovo G70-80[plb_2969809_price] (17.3" and cheaper).

Chart Edit

Average Total Storage Capacity

With a total storage capacity of 500 gigabytes, the Toshiba R50 has a fairly standard total storage capacity compared to most of the other laptops of this age and type.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 500GB total storage capacity laptops currently available including cheaper laptops such as the Acer Aspire E5-571[plb_2857818_price].

If this notebook PC total storage capacity is too small for you then you might want to consider the Asus X555LA[plb_2947144_price] (1TB), or the Lenovo G70-80[plb_2969809_price] (1TB) which is also cheaper.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Average Weight

The Toshiba R50 has a relatively standard weight (2.3 kilograms) compared to most of the other notebook PCs of this age and type.

We compared all the other 2.3kg heavy portable PCs to this notebook PC and we think cheaper laptops such as the Toshiba R50[plb_2917556_price], and the Asus X555LA[plb_2763466_price] is also worth considering.

If you don't mind having a heavier weight then you might want to consider the Toshiba Satellite Pro R50[plb_2781363_price] (2.3kg).

Read more Less Chart Edit

Average Battery Life

With a battery life of 7.5 hours, the Toshiba R50 has a fairly average battery life compared to most of the other comparable spec notebook PCs that are a similar age to the R50.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 7.5h battery life notebook PCs currently available including the Toshiba R50[plb_2917556_price] which is cheaper.

Notebook PCs with a longer battery life that might be worth considering include the Lenovo E550[plb_2963637_price] (9h and cheaper), or the Toshiba Z40[plb_2984397_price] (10h and cheaper).
