Quite Big Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory

The average maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of laptops that have been available for a similar time to the Satellite C55-B is 1.9GB. At 2 gigabytes, the Toshiba Satellite C55-B has a fairly big maximum on-board graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other similar spec laptops that came out around the same time as the Satellite C55-B.

Chart Edit

1,600MHz Processor Memory Clock Speed

The Satellite C55-B supports a 1,600MHz processor memory clock speed which is faster than most medium processor core notebook PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as it. Most medium processor core notebook PCs that are a similar age to it support a 133MHz processor memory clock speed. In addition, this notebook PC supports 1 and 333MHz processor memory clock speeds.

This laptop's memory clock speeds supported by processor (1,600MHz) is in fact the best supported memory clock speeds supported by processor amongst all laptops of this spec and age.

Fairly Big Total Storage Capacity

Across all the medium processor core notebook PCs that came out more than two years ago the total storage capacity range from 1GB to 1.5TB, and the average total storage capacity is 520GB. At 750 gigabytes, the Satellite C55-B has a quite big total storage capacity compared to most of the other medium processor core notebook PCs that were released more than two years ago.

We compared this portable PC to all the other 750GB total storage capacity portable PCs and we think cheaper notebook PCs such as the Inspiron 15 3521[pl_2092624_price], and the Inspiron 15[pl_2300892_price] both from DELL or the HP ProBook 450[plb_2350779_price] is also worth considering.

If this portable PC total storage capacity is not big enough for you then you might want to look at the Acer Aspire E5[plb_2690178_price] (1TB and cheaper), or the DELL Inspiron 15 7537[plb_2804323_price] (1TB and cheaper).
