We compared all the other 15.6" notebook PCs to this portable PC and we think the Toshiba Satellite C50-B (£349.99), and the Lenovo G50-70 which is cheaper is also worth considering.

Portable PCs with a bigger screen size that might be worth considering include the Acer Aspire E5-772 (£316.00) (17.3" and cheaper), or the Lenovo Z70-80 (£321.00) (17.3" and cheaper).

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Full-Size Keyboard

The Satellite S50-B does not have a full-size keyboard, unlike most of the other portable PCs that were launched more than a year ago.

We compared all the other portable PCs which also have a full-size keyboard to this notebook PC and we think the B50-80 (£325.71), the ThinkPad X250 (£888.96), or the X250 (£1,075.00) all from Lenovo is also worth considering.

Only HDD Storage Medium

This notebook PC has an HDD storage medium, which is typical of many comparable spec portable PCs that have been available for a similar time to it. 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 considering one of the other notebook PCs that have an HDD storage media currently available including the Satellite C50-B (£349.99), or the C55 both from Toshiba which is cheaper.

If you want a portable PC with a better storage medium then you might want to look at the Asus UX301LA (£490.00) (SSD and higher rated) or the Lenovo T450 (SSD and cheaper).

4 Other reasons to consider the Toshiba Satellite S50-B

Released Over a Year Ago

It was over a year ago when Toshiba released the Satellite S50-B.

Average Internal Memory

At 8 gigabytes, the Satellite S50-B has a pretty typical internal memory compared to most of the other notebook PCs of a comparable spec and age to the Satellite S50-B.

We compared all the other 8GB internal memory notebook PCs to this laptop and we think the Lenovo G50-70, and the Toshiba Satellite Z30 which is cheaper; or the DELL Latitude 13 3340 (£358.80) which has better reviews are also worth considering.

Average Weight

The Toshiba Satellite S50-B has a fairly average weight (2.1 kilograms) compared to most of the other comparable spec portable PCs that have been on the market for more than a year.

Other notebook PCs with a heavier weight that you might want to look at include the ProBook 640 (£610.00) (2kg and cheaper), or the ProBook 450 (£317.21) (2.1kg and cheaper) both from HP.

Average Battery Life

With a battery life of 6.5 hours, the Toshiba Satellite S50-B has a relatively average battery life compared to most of the other medium processor core notebook PCs that were released around the same time as the Satellite S50-B.

If this Toshiba laptop battery life is too short for you then you might also want to look at the G50-70 (7h and cheaper), or the G50-80 (£319.99) (7h and cheaper) both from Lenovo.
