Most medium processor core laptops that have been available for a similar time to it have an Intel Core i5 processor family. Laptops of a comparable spec and age to the X1 Carbon processor families range from AMD E (worst) to Intel Core i7-3xxx (best).
1,600MHz Processor Memory Clock Speed
The Lenovo X1 Carbon supports a faster memory clock speeds supported by processor than most similar spec laptops that have been available for around the same time as it. This Lenovo portable PC supports a 1,600MHz processor memory clock speed, whereas most medium processor core laptops that were released more than two years ago support a 133MHz processor memory clock speed.
A 1,600MHz processor memory clock speed is in fact the best supported memory clock speeds supported by processor amongst all notebook PCs that have been around for around the same time as the X1 Carbon.
The worst supported memory clock speeds supported by processor across comparable types of laptop is 133MHz.
Fairly Big Internal Memory
The average internal memory of medium processor core laptops that were released around the same time as the X1 Carbon is 5.1GB, and the internal memory range from 1GB to 16GB. With an internal memory of 8 gigabytes, the Lenovo X1 Carbon has one of the bigger internal memory amongst medium processor core laptops of this age.
SSD Storage Medium
The Lenovo X1 Carbon has an SSD storage medium which is better than the HDD storage medium found on most portable PCs of this age and type. 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.
