We compared all the other 4GB internal memory portable PCs to this portable PC and we think a cheaper laptop such as the HP 15, and the Toshiba Tecra A50 or you might consider a better rated laptop such as the HP EliteBook 840 are also worth considering.

If this medium processor core notebook PC internal memory is not big enough for you then you might want to consider the HP ProBook 640 (8GB and cheaper) or the DELL Latitude 12 E7250 (8GB and higher rated).

If this medium processor core notebook PC screen size is not big enough for you then you might want to consider the Flex 2 15 (15.6"), or the L540 (15.6") both from Lenovo which is also cheaper.
