    Lenovo G50Features

    15.6" HD Widescreen Display

    This display delivers bright, crisp visuals in 16:9 widescreen format and 1366 x 768 resolution.

    Blu-ray Disc™ or DVD drive

    Finding a laptop with a built in Blu-ray Disc™ or DVD drive is tougher than it used to be, but the G50 offers this option, nestling snugly into its less than 1" thin body.

    Epic Sound and Vision

    Thanks to its stereo speakers with Dolby® Advanced Audio™, and up to AMD Radeon™ R5 M230 2GB 3D graphics, the G50 offers stunning, stutter-free visuals and immersive sound for a fuller, more satisfying home entertainment experience.

    Multitouch Touchpad

    Optimized for Windows 8.1 features, this touchpad lets you toggle charms and apps, switch between apps, rotate, zoom, and use other functions with various easy swipes and gestures.

    AccuType Keyboard

    Featuring a modern look and feel, the acclaimed AccuType keyboard has island-style, ergonomic keys that allow a more fluid, spacious, comfortable, and accurate typing experience than standard keyboard designs.

    Fast Data Transfer

    Move data between the G50 and other devices quickly with USB 3.0 SuperSpeed; it's up to ten times faster than previous USB technologies, and it's backward-compatible.

    Battery-Saving Technology

    Lenovo Energy Management protects the long-term durability of the battery and uses advanced energy-saving technology to increase time spent between charges.

    Simple Maintenance

    With OneKey Recovery, recovering from viruses or other technical difficulties is a snap.

    Within a week, the mousepad was so worn down that the smart functions were triggered at random and it was unusable.

    I switched everything possible off and slashed the sensitivity, but the cursor still stops, jumps, highlights and clicks and drags against my will.

    I would have marked the computer lower, but the same thing happened with my last two laptops, both of which were from other companies, so I assume it's a general problem now.

    Lenovo G50Ask an Owner

    Here's a list of the questions other shoppers have asked owners of the G50

    1. Robert asked on
      Does it have a dual band network card
      1. Clive replied on
        No, not as far as I know. Just 2.5 MHz
    2. Amy asked on
      Hi there,
      Just wondering is this laptop good for playing Sims 4 or Sims 3? Looked everywhere for a laptop that would play Sims effectively but haven't found anything within my budget really.
      Thanks
      Amy
      1. eugene replied on
        The cpu is great. No idea wether it can handle sims
      2. Tosh replied on
        Haven't played the games ever, and haven't tried any games on this laptop, but having experienced its performance so far, I wouldn't think it would be able to handle a relatively recent game (2013-present) very well.
    3. Katerina asked on
      Hello! I have a question, how good is the screen? Because the resolution is 1366 x 768, is it good enough? Because now i have a 17" laptop, will i notice the difference? Thank you very much!
      1. agtar replied on
        Hi Katerina, I have no issue with the screen resolution. The main reason why I purchased this machine, high specification for the price and is more than adequate to cope with my higher education.
        I hope this has been helpful.(If you are not happy with laptop you have 14 days to return back to Lenovo after purchasing it.)
    4. Steven asked on
      Would the top model of this laptop be able to handle modern or big title games like Skyrim for example, thank you
      1. Anthony replied on
        I have got the G50 and don't play games on it. It does not seem as fast as I had expected so can't give you an honest answer.
    5. Derek asked on
      My laptop is so slow running FM 2015.
      Will this PC run it quicker?
      1. davina replied on
        We havent got FM2015 on the laptop, however everything we have on it runs quickly. We have quite a few apps/programs on it with no issue
    6. Mike asked on
      Hi I purchased a G50 when putting in my email adress press the @button and up came " found it later by pressing shift 2. Is there a way to fix this or should I take back tomorrow.
      1. Ian replied on
        I'm not an expert, but when you first set up the laptop, you have to define what type of keyboard you have (eg US-english, UK-querty, etc). Looks like yours is defined wrongly
    7. Karen asked on
      What is the sound system like?
      1. Leonard replied on
        It is quite good up to all levels below 80/90, which is quite loud enough!
    8. Tina asked on
      Does it have Microsoft outlook?
      1. Olanrewaju replied on
        No. You will have to buy an office license for that
