+5 More reasons for
Has a Front Camera
Like most of the other portable PCs that have been available for a comparable time to the G50-80, the Lenovo G50-80 has a front camera.
We compared this notebook PC to all the other notebook PCs with a front camera and we think the 15, or the ProBook 450 both from HP or the Lenovo Z70-80 is also worth considering.
L3 Processor Cache
This portable PC has a L3 processor cache, which is the most commonly found processor cache on laptops of a comparable spec and age to it.
802.11n WiFi Standard
This laptop has an 802.11b|802.11g|802.11n WiFi standard, which is the most frequently found WiFi standard on comparable spec portable PCs that have been available for a similar time to it.
2x SO-DIMM Memory Slot
This laptop has a 2x SO-DIMM memory slot, which is the most commonly found memory slot on notebook PCs of a similar age and spec to it.
11 Reasons Against
Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency
With an on-board graphics adapter base frequency of only 200 megahertz, the Lenovo G50-80 has one of the slower on-board graphics adapter base frequencies amongst medium processor core notebook PCs of this age. The average on-board graphics adapter base frequency of portable PCs that were released around the same time as the G50-80 is 290MHz, and the on-board graphics adapter base frequencies range from 100MHz to 650MHz.
Very Short Battery Life
With a battery life of only 4 hours, the Lenovo G50-80 has a fairly short battery life compared to most of the other portable PCs of this type and age. The shortest battery life of laptops that have been available for a similar time to the G50-80 is 2.5h, the longest is 24h, and the average battery life is 8.6h.
If this Lenovo portable PC battery life is not long enough for you then you might also want to consider the Lenovo B50-80 (6.2h and cheaper).
Only HDD Storage Medium
This laptop has an HDD storage medium, which is the most frequently found storage medium on laptops of this age and type. 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.
We compared this laptop to all the other laptops that have an HDD storage media and we think the Acer Aspire E5-772 which is cheaper is also worth considering.
At only 1.9 gigahertz, the Lenovo G50-80 has a fairly slow processor clock speed compared to most of the other portable PCs of a comparable age and spec to the G50-80. The average processor clock speed of portable PCs of a comparable type and age to the G50-80 is 2.2GHz, and the processor clock speeds range from 0.8GHz to 3.3GHz.
We compared all the other 1.9GHz processor clock speed laptops to this laptop and we think the Lenovo G50-80 which is cheaper is also worth considering.
Laptops with a faster processor clock speed that might also be worth looking at include the Lenovo B50-80 (2.2GHz) which is also cheaper.
+8 More reasons against
Very Small Battery Capacity
The battery capacities of portable PCs that have been around for more than a year range from 23Wh to 120Wh. The Lenovo G50-80 has one of the smaller battery capacities (only 32 watt-hours) amongst medium processor core notebook PCs of this age.
Does Not Have a Touch Sensitive Screen
The Lenovo G50-80 does not have a touch sensitive screen. Most of the other portable PCs of this age and type also do not have a touch sensitive screen.
We compared all the other notebook PCs which also have a touch sensitive screen to this portable PC and we think the Asus UX301LA is also worth considering.
Similar spec notebook PCs that have been available for around the same time as the G50-80 have weights of between 940g and 3.8kg. With a weight of 2.5 kilograms, the Lenovo G50-80 is fairly heavy compared to most of the other similar spec portable PCs that are a comparable age to the G50-80.
It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative 2.5kg heavy notebook PCs currently available including cheaper portable PCs such as the Lenovo G50-80.
Alternative notebook PCs with a heavier weight that you might want to look at include the G50-70 (2.5kg), or the G50-70 (2.5kg) both from Lenovo.
Very Dim Display Brightness
The dimmest display brightness of notebook PCs of this type and age is 200 cd/m², the brightest is 1,200 cd/m², and the average display brightness is 270 cd/m². At only 200 candellas per square meter, the Lenovo G50-80 has a quite dim display brightness compared to most of the other medium processor core notebook PCs that were released one year ago.
Quite Small Hard Drive Capacity
The average hard drive capacity of medium processor core notebook PCs that were released more than a year ago is 690GB, and the hard drive capacity range from 5GB to 2TB. The Lenovo G50-80 has one of the smaller hard drive capacity (only 500 gigabytes) amongst notebook PCs of this age.
Only Two USB 3.0 Ports
The Lenovo G50-80 is a two USB 3.0 port notebook PC.
