11 Reasons Against

£210.62 Price Increase

In the last 49 days the Satellite Pro L850 has increased in price by £210.62.

Not Cheap

Similar spec notebook PCs that were launched more than two years ago range in price from £178 to £1,964. We think that this medium processor core notebook PC looks expensive compared to other similar spec notebook PCs that were launched more than two years ago.

Does Not Have a Full-Size Keyboard

The Satellite Pro L850 does not have a full-size keyboard, unlike most of the other similar spec laptops that came out more than two years ago.

There are a number of alternative laptops which also have a full-size keyboard which you might want to look at including the ZBook 17, or the EliteBook Folio 9480m (£1,682.50) both from HP or the Lenovo X1 Carbon which is also cheaper.

Only HDD Storage Medium

This laptop has an HDD storage medium, which is typical of many laptops of this age and spec. 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.

We compared this portable PC to all the other laptops that have an HDD storage media and we think cheaper notebook PCs such as the Toughbook 53, and the Toughbook CF-53 both from Panasonic or the HP ZBook 17 is also worth considering.

If the storage medium of this portable PC is too bad for you then you might also want to consider the X1 Carbon (SSD and cheaper), or the X1 (SSD and cheaper) both from Lenovo or the HP Elitebook 820 (SSD and cheaper).
