Chart Edit

Chart Edit

12 Reasons Against

Only One USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Port

Most notebook PCs that were released around the same time as the G50-70 have between one and four USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports, including the Lenovo G50-70 which has one USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port.

Quite Small Maximum Internal Memory Supported by Processor

With a maximum internal memory supported by processor of only 16 gigabytes, the Lenovo G50-70 has a fairly small maximum internal memory supported by processor compared to most of the other laptops of a comparable age and spec to the G50-70. The average maximum internal memory supported by processor of similar spec laptops that are a comparable age to the G50-70 is 23GB, and the maximum internal memory supported by processors range from 4GB to 32GB.
