Lenovo G50-80 80L0006KIN 39.62cm (15.6 Inch) Notebook Black
- Good amount of hard disk space for this price. Amount of RAM provided is also pretty good.
- ATI JET LE R5 M230 is a decent GPU which will run plenty of games at average settings with no issues.
- For those working from home, the battery life is suitable enough.
- Solid build quality.
- Though it holds fourth generation status, the Core i3-4030U still feels underpowered. Its long-term status is also questionable compared to the Core i5 series.
- Display size is at odds with low resolution. Viewing angles are below average despite acceptable colour quality.
- Battery life not the best option for users frequently on the go.
Make no mistake - when you invest as much as into the Lenovo G50-80 80L0006KIN as this, you're not going to get the top-line features. The performance feels like it could be faster and is limited by the Core i3 CPU while the display quality seems just average on a good day. Even the battery life just manages to skirt on by since it won't be breaking records any time soon. Could you do better for a higher price? Sure but at this price, you can certainly do worse than the Lenovo G50-80 80L0006KIN.
The HP 15-AC072TX mirrors Lenovo's notebook in a variety of ways but manages to come out a little better in some cases. The GPU is an AMD Radeon R5 Series M330 with 2 GB DDR3 RAM which makes for slightly superior gaming performance. Otherwise, it comes with Intel Core i3-4005U clocked at 1.7 GHz, 4 GB RAM and a 1 TB HDD. The 15.6 inch LED display also has a 1366 x 768 resolution and battery life is marked at four hours. Consider this is a decent alternative if the Lenovo G50-80 80L0006KIN.
