Budget and affordable Lenovo G50 laptop combines a slimline design with and performance that will meet average user challenges. By it’s specifications it belongs to lower budget level of laptops, but in hands it doesn’t feel cheap or low quality. 5.5 lbs (or 2.5 kg) weight is a bit too much. Chiclet keyboard has a numpad and all the keys are spread enough for comfortable typing. The only problem is that the fealing while typing feels “plastic”. You will also find 2x USB 3.0, one USB 2.0, an HDMI-out, 2-in-1 card reader (SD/MMC), headphone/mic combo and VGA built in ports.
15.6″ HD display with LED backlight delivers bright, crisp picture in 16:9 widescreen format with 1366 x 768 resolution. Viewing angles are good for this entry level class. We regret to see low resolution display on laptops, while a lots od 10 inch tablets from Chinese manufacturers have Full HD 1080p or bigger resolution.
Big advantage is silent, almost noiseless workflow. Heating in longer usage is negligible, and all the components inside will not overheat, as they are not very powerful, which could make this laptop more durable.
