18 Reasons For

Toshiba Has Good Notebook PC Reviews

We calculated the average reviews for all Toshiba notebook PCs and also specifically for Toshiba medium processor core notebook PCs and found that in both cases Toshiba had good reviews compared to other manufacturers.

Very Big Maximum Internal Memory Supported by Processor

With a maximum internal memory supported by processor of 32 gigabytes, the Toshiba Tecra A50 has one of the biggest maximum internal memory supported by processors amongst comparable spec notebook PCs of this age. Similar spec portable PCs that were launched around the same time as the Tecra A50 have maximum internal memory supported by processors of between 4GB and 32GB, and the average maximum internal memory supported by processor is 23GB.

Chart Edit

16 PCI Express Lanes (max)

The Tecra A50 has more PCI Express lanes (max) than most of the medium processor core notebook PCs that have been on the market for a comparable time to the Tecra A50. This portable PC is a 16 PCI Express lane (max) portable PC compared to most of the medium processor core notebook PCs that have been available for around the same time as the Tecra A50 which only have between 1 and 15 PCI Express lanes (max).

Chart Edit

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This notebook PC supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many portable PCs of this age and spec.

Chart Edit

Quite New PCI Express Slot Version

With a PCI Express slot version of 3, the Toshiba Tecra A50 has one of the newer PCI Express slot versions amongst similar spec laptops of this age. The oldest PCI Express slot version of comparable spec laptops that have been on the market for a similar time to the Tecra A50 is 2, the newest is 3, and the average PCI Express slot version is 2.2.

Chart Edit

Quite Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency

The average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of medium processor core notebook PCs that have been around for a comparable time to the Tecra A50 is 1,100MHz, and the on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies range from 660MHz to 1,300MHz. At 1,250 megahertz, the Toshiba Tecra A50 has a fairly fast on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency compared to most of the other medium processor core notebook PCs that were launched around the same time as the Tecra A50.

Chart Edit

Quite Fast Processor Clock Speed

The Tecra A50 has a fairly fast processor clock speed (2.6 gigahertz) compared to most of the other notebook PCs of this spec and age. Laptops of a similar age and type to the Tecra A50 have processor clock speeds of between 0.8GHz and 3.1GHz, and the average processor clock speed is 2.1GHz.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 2.6GHz processor clock speed laptops currently available including the MSI CX61, the Lenovo L540 (£674.86), or the DELL Latitude E6430 which is cheaper.

Laptops with a faster processor clock speed that might also be worth looking at include the Latitude E6430 (2.7GHz), or the Latitude E6430 (£573.17) (2.7GHz) both from DELL or the HP ProBook 645 G1 (£609.64) (2.7GHz) which is also cheaper.
