13 Reasons Against
Very Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
The Lenovo G50-80 has a fairly slow on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency (only 850 megahertz) compared to most of the other laptops that have been on the market for a similar time to the G50-80. The average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of notebook PCs that were released around the same time as the G50-80 is 910MHz, and the on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies range from 850MHz to 1,000MHz.
Only One USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Port
The Lenovo G50-80 is a one USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port portable PC. Most of the other similar spec laptops that have been on the market for the last year have between one and three USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.
Does Not Have a Full-Size Keyboard
The Lenovo G50-80 does not have a full-size keyboard. Most of the other recently released medium processor core notebook PCs do have a full-size keyboard.
Very Short Battery Life
Recently released notebook PCs have battery lifes of between 4h and 11h. At only 4 hours, the Lenovo G50-80 has a quite short battery life compared to most of the other newly released notebook PCs.
Notebook PCs with a longer battery life that might also be worth considering include the Lenovo X1 Carbon (8.7h).
+10 More reasons against
Across all the medium processor core notebook PCs that have been on the market for the last year the weights range from 1.1kg to 3kg. The Lenovo G50-80 is one of the heavier similar spec portable PCs that were released around the same time as the G50-80 (2.3 kilograms) amongst medium processor core notebook PCs of this age.
If you are not concerned about having a heavier weight then you might also want to consider the DELL XPS 13 (£776.00) (1.2kg), or the Asus X555LA (£299.00) (2.3kg).
Does Not Have a Touch Sensitive Screen
The Lenovo G50-80 does not have a touch sensitive screen. Most of the other medium processor core notebook PCs that have been around for the last year also do not have a touch sensitive screen.
We think you might also be interested in other laptops which also have a touch sensitive screen including the DELL XPS 13 (£776.00), or the Lenovo X1 Carbon.
Only Intel Core I3-5xxx Processor Family
The Lenovo G50-80 has a better processor family than most comparable spec portable PCs that were launched in the last 12 months. This laptop has an Intel Core i3-5xxx processor family, whereas most recently released comparable spec laptops have an Intel Core i7-5xxx processor family. The processor family of all laptops that have been available for a comparable time to the G50-80 ranges from Intel Atom (worst) to Intel Core i7-4xxx (best).
Very Small Battery Capacity
At only 32 watt-hours, the Lenovo G50-80 has a quite small battery capacity compared to most of the other comparable spec laptops that have been on the market for the last year. The average battery capacity of medium processor core notebook PCs that were launched around the same time as the G50-80 is 42Wh.
Only One USB 3.0 Port
The Lenovo G50-80 is a one USB 3.0 port portable PC. Most of the other new laptops have between one and three USB 3.0 ports.
Very Small Hard Drive Capacity
