With a processor clock speed of 2.5 gigahertz, the Lenovo Y50 has a relatively average processor clock speed compared to most of the other laptops that are a similar age to the Y50.

If this notebook PC processor clock speed is not fast enough for you then you might also want to look at the MSI GS30 2M[plb_2756307_price] (2.6GHz and cheaper), or the Lenovo Y50[plb_2933469_price] (2.6GHz and cheaper).

We compared all the other 1TB total storage capacity laptops to this notebook PC and we think the MSI GS60[plb_2673655_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 8GB internal memory laptops currently available including the MSI GS60[plb_2673655_price] which is cheaper.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 15.6" notebook PCs currently available including cheaper laptops such as the MSI GS60[plb_2673655_price].

If this Lenovo notebook PC screen size is not big enough for you then you might also want to consider the MSI GP70 Leopard[plb_2913590_price] (17.3" and cheaper).

Read more Less Chart Edit

Average Weight

At 2.4 kilograms, the Lenovo Y50 has a relatively typical weight compared to most of the other portable PCs of this age and type.
