1,600MHz Processor Memory Clock Speed

The Satellite Pro R50-B supports a faster memory clock speeds supported by processor than most similar spec laptops that have been available for a comparable time to it. This portable PC supports a 1,600MHz processor memory clock speed, whereas most medium processor cores portable PCs that were released around the same time as it support a 133MHz processor memory clock speed. This laptop also supports 1 and 333MHz processor memory clock speeds. Across all laptops of this age and type the worst memory clock speeds supported by processor is 133MHz and the best is 1,866MHz.

Chart Edit

SSD Storage Media

The Satellite Pro R50-B has an SSD storage media which is better than most laptops of a comparable age and type to it. Most laptops of this age and type have an HDD storage media. 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.

An SSD storage media is actually the best storage medium across all comparable spec notebook PCs that were launched around the same time as the Satellite Pro R50-B.

Across comparable types of portable PC the worst storage medium is HDD.

We compared this laptop to all the other notebook PCs that have an SSD storage media and we think because of it's better review score, the DELL Latitude 12 E7250[plb_2899678_price] is also worth considering.
