Toshiba Tecra Z50-A-11C laptop - video test (09.12.2014)

15 Reasons For

Good Brand

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

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This portable PC supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many laptops of a similar spec and age to it.

Chart Edit

Three USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports

Most medium processor core notebook PCs that were launched around the same time as the Tecra Z50 have between one and four USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports, including the Toshiba Tecra Z50 which has three USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.

Chart Edit

1,600MHz Processor Memory Clock Speed

The Tecra Z50 supports a 1,600MHz processor memory clock speed which is faster than most medium processor core notebook PCs that are a comparable age to it. Most medium processor core notebook PCs that were released more than two years ago support a 133MHz processor memory clock speed. In addition, this portable PC supports 1 and 333MHz processor memory clock speeds.

This laptop's memory clock speeds supported by processor (1,600MHz) is in fact the best supported memory clock speeds supported by processor amongst all notebook PCs of a comparable type and age to the Tecra Z50.

Amongst similar types of laptop the worst supported memory clock speeds supported by processor is 133MHz.

SSD Storage Medium

The Tecra Z50 has an SSD storage medium which is better than the HDD storage medium found on most notebook PCs that are a similar age to it. Solid State Drives (SSD) store data in semiconductors on a circuit board rather than using magnetic or optical media. Solid State Drives have no moving parts which makes them very fast and reliable.

This notebook PC's storage medium (SSD) is actually the best storage medium across all medium processor core notebook PCs that have been on the market for a similar time to the Tecra Z50.

An HDD storage medium is the worst storage medium amongst similar types of notebook PC.

Alternative notebook PCs that have an SSD storage media currently available which you might want to consider include the T420s (£1,388.87), the X1 Carbon, or the T420s (£1,388.87) all from Lenovo which is cheaper.

Alternative laptops with a full-size keyboard currently available that you might want to consider include cheaper notebook PCs such as the Panasonic Toughbook CF-53, or the Asus X550CA.

We compared this portable PC to all the other laptops with a full-size keyboard and we think the Toshiba Satellite Z30 is also worth considering.

Chart Edit

16 Reasons Against

Very Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency

With an on-board graphics adapter base frequency of only 200 megahertz, the Tecra Z50 has a fairly slow on-board graphics adapter base frequency compared to most of the other medium processor core notebook PCs that have been on the market for more than two years. Similar spec portable PCs that were released more than two years ago have on-board graphics adapter base frequencies of between 200MHz and 650MHz.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency

At only 1,000 megahertz, the Tecra Z50 has a quite slow 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 Z50. The average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of medium processor core notebook PCs that are a similar age to the Tecra Z50 is 1,100MHz.

Chart Edit

Expensive

The price range of medium processor core notebook PCs that have been available for more than two years is from £178 to £1,964. We think that this medium processor core notebook PC looks expensive compared to other medium processor core notebook PCs that have been available for more than two years.

Quite Small Maximum Internal Memory Supported by Processor

The maximum internal memory supported by processors of similar spec laptops that have been around for around the same time as the Tecra Z50 range from 4GB to 32GB. With a maximum internal memory supported by processor of only 16 gigabytes, the Tecra Z50 has one of the smaller maximum internal memory supported by processors amongst medium processor core notebook PCs of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Small Total Storage Capacity

The total storage capacity of notebook PCs of a similar spec and age to the Tecra Z50 range from 1GB to 1.5TB. At only 128 gigabytes, the Tecra Z50 has a fairly small total storage capacity compared to most of the other similar spec laptops that are a comparable age to the Tecra Z50.

Other 128GB total storage capacity laptops currently available which you might want to look at include cheaper laptops such as the Toshiba Satellite Z30.

If you are looking for a laptop with a bigger total storage capacity then you might want to look at the EliteBook 820 (180GB and cheaper), or the EliteBook 850 (256GB and cheaper) both from HP.

Quite Slow Processor Clock Speed

Across all the comparable spec laptops that are a similar age to the Tecra Z50 the processor clock speeds range from 0.8GHz to 3.1GHz, and the average processor clock speed is 2.1GHz. At only 1.7 gigahertz, the Tecra Z50 has a quite slow processor clock speed compared to most of the other medium processor core notebook PCs that are a comparable age to the Tecra Z50.

We compared all the other 1.7GHz processor clock speed portable PCs to this portable PC and we think the HP EliteBook 850 which is cheaper is also worth considering.

Laptops with a faster processor clock speed that might be worth looking at include the EliteBook 850 (2GHz and cheaper), or the EliteBook 840 (£861.00) (2GHz and cheaper) both from HP.

Other 4GB internal memory portable PCs currently available that you might want to look at include cheaper notebook PCs such as the Lenovo T420s (£1,388.87), or the HP EliteBook 820.

If this notebook PC internal memory is too small for you then you might want to consider the EliteBook 850 (8GB and cheaper), or the ZBook (£630.00) (8GB and cheaper) both from HP or the Toshiba Portégé Z30-A (8GB and cheaper).
