Intel Core I7 Processor Family
The Lenovo G50-70 has an Intel Core i7 processor family which is better than the Intel Core i5 processor family found on most portable PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as it. The best processor family of all medium processor core notebook PCs that are a comparable age to the G50-70 is Intel Core i7-3xxx and the worst is AMD C.
1,600MHz Processor Memory Clock Speed
The Lenovo G50-70 supports a 1,600MHz processor memory clock speed which is faster than the 133MHz processor memory clock speed supported by most portable PCs of a similar spec and age to it. This Lenovo portable PC also supports 1 and 333MHz processor memory clock speeds.
This notebook PC's memory clock speeds supported by processor (1,600MHz) is in fact the best supported memory clock speeds supported by processor across all notebook PCs that have been available for more than two years.
Across comparable types of notebook PC the worst supported memory clock speeds supported by processor is 133MHz.
Has a Full-Size Keyboard
The Lenovo G50-70 has a full-size keyboard, as do most of the other similar spec portable PCs that have been available for around the same time as the G50-70.

We think you might also be interested in alternative laptops which also have a full-size keyboard including the Lenovo G50-70, or the Acer Aspire V5-123 (£342.00).
Has a Front Camera
Like most of the other laptops that were launched around the same time as the G50-70, the Lenovo G50-70 has a front camera.
We compared all the other portable PCs which also have a front camera to this laptop and we think the G50-70, the G50-70, or the G50-70 all from Lenovo is also worth considering.

+8 More reasons against
Quite Small Internal Memory
The average internal memory of laptops of this age and type is 5.3GB. At only 4 gigabytes, the Lenovo G50-70 has a quite small internal memory compared to most of the other notebook PCs of this age and spec.
It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 4GB internal memory notebook PCs currently available including cheaper notebook PCs such as the 350, the 250 (£395.98), or the ProBook 450 all from HP.
If you would prefer a notebook PC with a bigger internal memory then you might want to look at the HP 15 (8GB and cheaper).
Quite Small Battery Capacity
Across all the medium processor core notebook PCs that have been around for a comparable time to the G50-70 the battery capacities range from 23Wh to 100Wh. When compared to other comparable spec laptops that have been available for a similar time to the G50-70, the battery capacity of the Lenovo G50-70 of only 32 watt-hours is one of the smallest.
Only 10 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Rate
This notebook PC Ethernet LAN data rate, which is typical of many portable PCs that are a similar age to it.
Portable PCs of a similar spec and age to the G50-70 have weights of between 300g and 3.8kg, and the average weight is 2.2kg. With a weight of 2.5 kilograms, the Lenovo G50-70 is fairly heavy compared to most of the other laptops of a similar type and age to the G50-70.
If you are not concerned about having a heavier weight then you might also want to look at the G50-70 (2.5kg), or the B590 (2.5kg) both from Lenovo or the Acer Aspire E5-571 (£424.75) (2.5kg).
Does Not Have a Touch Sensitive Screen
Most portable PCs that have been on the market for more than two years do not have a touch sensitive screen. The Lenovo G50-70 is no exception to this as it too does not have a touch sensitive screen.
There are a number of alternative laptops which also have a touch sensitive screen that you might want to consider including the DELL Inspiron 14 3000 which is also cheaper.
Very Small Maximum Internal Memory (64-Bit)
With a maximum internal memory (64-bit) of only 8 gigabytes, the Lenovo G50-70 has a fairly small maximum internal memory (64-bit) compared to most of the other laptops of this spec and age. Across all the similar spec notebook PCs that have been around for a comparable time to the G50-70 the maximum internal memory (64-bit) range from 4GB to 32GB, and the average maximum internal memory (64-bit) is 12GB.

Average Screen Size
The Lenovo G50-70 has a relatively standard screen size (15.6 inches) compared to most of the other medium processor core notebook PCs that have been available for a similar time to the G50-70.
We compared all the other 15.6" laptops to this laptop and we think the HP ProBook 450, and the DELL Inspiron 15 which is cheaper is also worth considering.
