+8 More reasons for
1,600MHz Processor Memory Clock Speed
The Toshiba Satellite Pro L870 supports a faster memory clock speeds supported by processor than most similar spec laptops that were released more than two years ago. This Toshiba notebook PC supports a 1,600MHz processor memory clock speed, whereas most portable PCs of this spec and age support a 133MHz processor memory clock speed. This notebook PC also supports 1 and 333MHz processor memory clock speeds.
This portable PC's memory clock speeds supported by processor (1,600MHz) is actually the best supported memory clock speeds supported by processor amongst all medium processor core notebook PCs that have been around for more than two years.
Amongst comparable types of portable PC the worst supported memory clock speeds supported by processor is 133MHz.
Has a Front Camera
The Satellite Pro L870 has a front camera. Most of the other medium processor core notebook PCs that were launched more than two years ago also have a front camera.
802.11n WiFi Standard
This laptop has an 802.11b|802.11g|802.11n WiFi standard, which is the most commonly found WiFi standard on medium processor core notebook PCs that have been around for more than two years.
64-Bit Operating System Architecture
This notebook PC has a 64-bit operating system architecture, which is the most frequently found operating system architecture on laptops of a similar age and type to it.
Three USB 3.0 Ports
The Toshiba Satellite Pro L870 is a three USB 3.0 port laptop. Most of the other portable PCs of this type and age have between one and four USB 3.0 ports.
Quite Big Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory
With a discrete graphics adapter memory of 2,048 megabytes, the Satellite Pro L870 has a fairly big discrete graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other portable PCs of a comparable spec and age to the Satellite Pro L870. The average discrete graphics adapter memory of medium processor core notebook PCs that were released more than two years ago is 1.7GB, and the discrete graphics adapter memory range from 510MB to 4.1GB.
2x SO-DIMM Memory Slot
This laptop has a 2x SO-DIMM memory slot, which is the most commonly found memory slot on medium processor core notebook PCs that have been available for more than two years.
7 Reasons Against
Quite Short Battery Life
The Satellite Pro L870 has a very short battery life (only 3 hours) compared to most of the other portable PCs of a similar age and spec to the Satellite Pro L870. The battery lifes of laptops of this spec and age range from 2h to 4,400h.
Does Not Have a Full-Size Keyboard
The Satellite Pro L870 does not have a full-size keyboard. Most of the other laptops of a similar spec and age to the Satellite Pro L870 do have a full-size keyboard.
Only HDD Storage Medium
This portable PC has an HDD storage medium, which is typical of many notebook PCs of this age and type. 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.
If the storage medium of this portable PC is not good enough for you then you might want to look at the T420s[pl_48433_price] (SSD), or the S540[pl_2433540_price] (SSD) both from Lenovo.
Does Not Have a Touch Sensitive Screen
The Satellite Pro L870 does not have a touch sensitive screen. Most of the other medium processor core notebook PCs that were released more than two years ago also do not have a touch sensitive screen.
+4 More reasons against
The average weight of laptops of a comparable type and age to the Satellite Pro L870 is 2.2kg. At 2.7 kilograms, the Satellite Pro L870 is fairly heavy compared to most of the other laptops that have been available for a comparable time to the Satellite Pro L870.
Only 4 Bluetooth Version
This laptop supports a 4.0 LE Bluetooth version, which is typical of many medium processor core notebook PCs that have been around for more than two years.
The Satellite Pro L870 is quite thick (33.7 millimeters) compared to most of the other portable PCs of this type and age. The average height of laptops of this type and age is 27mm.
4 Other reasons to consider the Toshiba Satellite Pro L870
Released Over Three Years Ago
It was over three years ago when Toshiba released the Satellite Pro L870.
Intel Core I3-3xxx Processor Family
The Satellite Pro L870 has a better processor family than most portable PCs of a similar age and spec to it. This portable PC has an Intel Core i3-3xxx processor family, whereas most laptops that were released more than two years ago have an Intel Core i5 processor family.
Average Total Storage Capacity
The Satellite Pro L870 has a fairly standard total storage capacity (500 gigabytes) compared to most of the other medium processor core notebook PCs that came out more than two years ago.
We compared all the other 500GB total storage capacity laptops to this notebook PC and we think because of it's better review score, the Acer Travelmate TMP253-M[plb_1476372_price] is also worth considering.
If this medium processor core notebook PC total storage capacity is not big enough for you then you might want to consider the Lenovo X1 Carbon[plb_2843836_price] (512GB).
+2 Other reasons
Average Internal Memory
At 4 gigabytes, the Satellite Pro L870 has a relatively standard internal memory compared to most of the other laptops that have been available for around the same time as the Satellite Pro L870.
It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 4GB internal memory notebook PCs currently available including because of it's better review score, the Acer Aspire One AO725[plb_1491127_price].
