15 Reasons Against
Only 133MHz Processor Memory Clock Speed
This portable PC supports 1333 and 1600MHz processor memory clock speeds, which is typical of many notebook PCs of this type and age.
Very Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
The on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies of laptops that have been on the market for a comparable time to the G50-80 range from 750MHz to 1,300MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency is 970MHz. The Lenovo G50-80 has a quite slow on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency (only 850 megahertz) compared to most of the other medium processor core laptops that have been available for a comparable time to the G50-80.
Only Not Supported HD Type
The HD type of the this laptop are Not supported, which is typical of many portable PCs of a similar type and age to it.
Only One USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Port
Most medium processor core laptops that came out more than a year ago have between one and four USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports, including the Lenovo G50-80 which has one USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port.
+12 More reasons against
Does Not Have a Full-Size Keyboard
The Lenovo G50-80 does not have a full-size keyboard, unlike most of the other medium processor core laptops that have been on the market for a comparable time to the G50-80.
Quite Short Battery Life
Medium processor core laptops that were launched more than a year ago have battery lifes of between 2.5h and 33h. When compared to other medium processor core laptops that have been available for a comparable time to the G50-80 that we have assessed, the battery life of the Lenovo G50-80 of only 4 hours is one of the shortest.
Only HDD Storage Medium
This portable PC has an HDD storage medium, which is typical of many laptops that have been available for a comparable time to it. HDD is a traditional storage drive which stores the information on magnetic disks. HDD drives are slower than other forms of storage such as solid state drives (SSD) and flash drives.
Only 1366 X 768 Pixels Display Resolution
This laptop has a display resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels, which is typical of many similar spec notebook PCs that have been on the market for more than a year.
Only Intel Core I3-5xxx Processor Family
The Lenovo G50-80 has an Intel Core i3-5xxx processor family which is better than most notebook PCs of this spec and age. Most medium processor core laptops that were released one year ago have an Intel Core i5-5xxx processor family. Across all portable PCs that are a comparable age to the G50-80 the best processor family is Intel Core i7-3xxx and the worst is AMD E.
If the processor family of this laptop is too bad for you then you might also want to consider the HP 350 (£245.04) (Intel Core i5-5xxx).
Does Not Have a Touch Sensitive Screen
The Lenovo G50-80 does not have a touch sensitive screen, although it is worth noting that most of the other medium processor core laptops that were released around the same time as the G50-80 also do not have a touch sensitive screen.
Only One USB 3.0 Port
Most laptops of a similar type and age to the G50-80 have between one and four USB 3.0 ports, including the Lenovo G50-80 which has one USB 3.0 port.
Quite Small Hard Drive Capacity
Across all the laptops of this age and spec the hard drive capacity range from 250GB to 2TB, and the average hard drive capacity is 640GB. At only 500 gigabytes, the Lenovo G50-80 has a fairly small hard drive capacity compared to most of the other laptops that are a comparable age to the G50-80.
Only 802.11a WiFi Standard
The Lenovo G50-80 has an 802.11a WiFi standard which is better than most comparable spec laptops that were launched more than a year ago. Most medium processor core laptops that are a comparable age to it have an 802.11n WiFi standard. The worst Wi-Fi standard of all similar spec portable PCs that came out more than a year ago is 802.11ad and the best is 802.11n.
Very Slow Hard Drive Speed
With a hard drive speed of only 5,400 revolutions per minute, the Lenovo G50-80 has a fairly slow hard drive speed compared to most of the other laptops of a comparable age and spec to the G50-80. The average hard drive speed of laptops of this age and type is 5,900 RPM.
Only 4 Bluetooth Version
