We compared all the other portable PCs which also have a full-size keyboard to this portable PC and we think the Latitude 14 E5450 ($600.00), or the Latitude 12 7000 ($594.99) both from DELL or the HP ProBook 640 is also worth considering.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 12.5" portable PCs currently available including cheaper notebook PCs such as the Lenovo X250, or the HP EliteBook 820.
This laptop has a Hybrid-HDD storage medium, which is the most commonly found storage medium on medium processor core laptops that came out more than a year ago.

Released Over a Year Ago
This notebook PC has been on the market for over a year.
Average Processor Clock Speed
At 2.3 gigahertz, the Lenovo X250 has a pretty standard processor clock speed compared to most of the other notebook PCs that are a similar age to the X250.
It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative 2.3GHz processor clock speed laptops currently available including a cheaper laptop such as the DELL Latitude 14 E5450 or you might consider a higher scoring laptop such as the DELL Latitude 14 E7450.
If this notebook PC processor clock speed is too slow for you then you might want to consider the HP ZBook 14 G2 ($899.99) (2.4GHz), the Lenovo L540 (2.6GHz), or the Toshiba A50 (2.7GHz).
Average Internal Memory
At 8 gigabytes, the Lenovo X250 has a pretty standard internal memory compared to most of the other similar spec portable PCs that were released more than a year ago.
We compared this laptop to all the other 8GB internal memory laptops and we think the X250, and the ThinkPad E550 both from Lenovo or the HP Pavilion 17 which is cheaper is also worth considering.

Average Total Storage Capacity
At 500 gigabytes, the Lenovo X250 has a fairly typical total storage capacity compared to most of the other portable PCs of this age and type.

Notebook PCs with a bigger total storage capacity that might be worth looking at include the HP Pavilion 14-ab166us ($624.99) (1TB and cheaper).
