Average Processor Clock Speed

At 2.4 gigahertz, the Satellite Pro A50-C has a fairly average processor clock speed compared to most of the other laptops of a comparable type and age to the Satellite Pro A50-C.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative 2.4GHz processor clock speed notebook PCs currently available including cheaper laptops such as the Lenovo G500[plb_2433548_price].

If this portable PC processor clock speed is not fast enough for you then you might want to consider the Lenovo Z510[plb_2979742_price] (2.5GHz), or the Acer Aspire E5-573[plb_3010583_price] (2.7GHz).
