Black Lenovo G50 (59421806) is a 15.6 inch functional and versatile notebook with a good variety of modern day features and mid-range to high end technical specs such as a 4th generation Intel i5 processor, 1TB size ample storage space and 6GB system memory. It is conveniently portable with a thin chassis at just under 1 inch thick and 4.6 lbs weight, has a DVD drive that is hard to find on laptops these days and connectivity options like USB 3.0, HDMI port and Bluetooth.

Lenovo G50 comes with the ultra low voltage dual core Haswell Intel i5-4210U processor at 1.7 GHz speed with Turbo Boost that takes the speed up to 2.7 GHz and hyper threading for dual cores to handle 4 threads in parallel, 6 GB DDR3 RAM for proper multitasking of a few programs and browser tabs, 1 TB Serial ATA hard drive at 5400 rpm hard drive rotating speed to save all your files and Windows 8.1 operating system that is more user-friendly and with familiar features for those that are used to Windows 7. The i5-4210U CPU has a thermal design power of only 15 watts so that should help with the energy usage.

Glossy 15.6 inch HD widescreen display with 16:9 cinematic aspect ratio and 1366x768 pixel maximum screen resolution offers clear and bright images although not Full HD so don’t expect the same kind of contrast and sharpness and the integrated Intel HD 4400 graphics card that is faster and more capable than the Intel HD 4000 and is comparable to the performance levels of the discrete Radeon HD 7550M graphics card that will let you play some of the latest games at lower settings and you should be comfy with the older titles at higher resolutions. You’ll get rich and immersive sound through the Dolby Advanced Audio and two stereo speakers for a great home entertainment experience. The HDMI port and optical DVD drive will add to a better multimedia experience and the HD quality webcam is good for proper work conferences and easy Skype chats.
