Great laptop, not so great software bundled with it. Fantastic laptop for the price. Super quiet, good processor and nice hi res screen. Only drawback is the massive (and i mean massive) amount of bloatware that comes with it.
Top value and no. 1 best seller in nov/dec 2015. This is the second g50 for me in just 3 months, the previous one also having the i3 4005u processor, and this happily means that both of my teenage daughters have almost identical laptops so that’s one parental headache avoided. Compared to my own laptop, the very obvious and pleasing benefit of this lenovo g50 is its almost dead-silent operation. It’s bordering on the unreal; i had to buy a laptop cooler for my own machine but no such problems with this new one here. It’s also satisfyingly slim and light, making it as portable as you could hope for in a 15’6′ laptop. Of course it’s often difficult to write about something like this and completely ignore the operating system, since the os is such an influential factor. All i will say is that the lenovo came with windows 8. 1 and we did an immediate upgrade to windows 10. It took a long time but the feedback has been totally positive. Having had a brief try of w-10 i can see why people often describe it as a sort of combination of 7 and 8.
Full function laptop at a good price. . Just what we wanted at a discounted price during the black friday promotion. Very easy to set up and to complete the free upgrade to windows 10. We have an earlier model of the same computer in the family that has worked well. The new model has much better sound quality. Here are the specifications for the Lenovo G50 15:
- Enter your model number
to make sure this fits.
- Exceptional Value – the power to perform in a truly affordable package. The latest processors and graphics options combine to make games, photos and media come to life
- Truly Entertaining – integrated DVD read-write drive and Dolby stereo speakers make G50 notebooks perfect for even the most dedicated movie buff
- Packed with Features – less than an inch thick, but preloaded with intelligent software like VeriFace Pro (face recognition) and Lenovo Energy Manager to extend battery life
- AccuType keyboard with numeric keypad and individual rounded keys for comfortable and accurate typing
Good, but better out there for similar money. For the money this is an ok laptop. Not fantastic, but quick, light, has a good screen and a simple but elegant look. The i7 processor is good but it is should not be a deal-breaker. It is a simple laptop, not overloaded with features and for the money there is better out there. But it still remains a good laptop overall. Based on previous laptops i have owned this is not the best value for the money. I have experienced some issues with opening some programmes and the keyboard is quite flimsy. However, the main con is that the mouse pad is terrible, it often develops a life of its own if you are using it for an extended period of time and jumps everywhere. This seems to be a common problem to which i am not aware there has been any software update for.
Slightly bouncy keyboard and a little plasticky. Slightly bouncy keyboard and a little plasticky but overall really good value for money. Does everything we want it too and it is fast. It also has ac connection which wasn’t mentioned in the description, so was a bonus.

- Top value and No.1 Best Seller in Nov/Dec 2015
- Nippy yet affordable. Much nicer looking than it appears in the picture.
Great laptop and at such a great price , highly recommended by me and my family. . Superb laptop , great quality at a bargain price , we’ve had this laptop now for a few weeks and we have got really used to it , we are used to desktop computers and ipad’s. Well i am , my children are used to laptops because they use them at their schools , me im not used to a laptops but i am now. It was easy to set up and instructions were simple to use , i upgraded the windows 8. 1 straight away to windows 10 and i also registered the laptop with lenovo and installed mcavee online security , all easy and simple to do , internet connection via wi-fi is great ( all around the house ) , my children really love to use it and i’ve already installed steam for my second eldest son so he can get access to some great games. Ease of use is easy and sound quality is great and its dolby sound , the laptop also comes with a dvd recordable disc drive so you can watch a dvd or even play your favourite game , depending on the graphics card installed etc , i did a bit of googling and visited the intel graphics card website and it says that there are quite a few games that are compatible with this graphics card , which is great. Keyboard is great and the mousepad is also good , we also use a wireless mouse. Which helps if your not used to mousepads ( like me ) , we like that is a intel i3 and it has a huge memory of 1 tb and 6 gb of ram and its such a great price , battery is ok and lasts a few hours but when my children use it we tend to leave it plugged in , my two youngest children use the laptop upstairs , they like to play animal jam , we have hardly noticed any lag as well with this laptop and we love that all of the controls are easily accessible ( volume & screen brightness ) all at top of the keyboard , i recommend this laptop , its a great family favourite for us lot. My children tend to use it more. It comes with so many great features like a maintenance programme by lenovo and you can clean the fan with just a click of the mouse using this maintenance programme.
Sleek, fast and does the job.
