Lenovo B50-80 Notebook Review

 

Jack-of-all-trades? AR-coated, Full HD, powerful Intel SoC, and an AMD graphics. The mix that dreams are made of? However, we are disappointed - and you?

Contrast & matte Full HD, Low waste heat / operating noise

Pliable plastic chassis, Weak input devices, Manual Radeon switching, Radeon and HD Graphics often on par, Weak viewing angles, Bluish tint, Slow hard drive, Poor battery life

Lenovo launches a 15-inch device that fulfills its duty stoically, but cannot really stand out in any aspect. The cheap-looking casing is not particularly stable, the gaps are uneven. Pride of ownership does not evolve. The input devices are...

Faulty Software

 

Cheap

It came with a faulty installation of Windows 7 Pro that prevented me from using Windows Update. The computer comes with a slip stating that you can request recovery media from Lenovo Support, but when I called support they said that recovery media is...

Core I3 for under $300 - can't beat it

 

All the lower cost systems come with some unwanted programs. This is how they keep the prices low but in the case of Lenovo, the quality is not sacrificed. Some reviews complain about the software, but you can easily remove all the software and in...

Lenovo quality, even on the lower cost models is better than most the other brands. I have been buying Lenovo exclusively for the past 7 years after problems with other brands. Bought this as a gift and got it all set up and ran testing before giving...

Great laptop for the price!

 

My uncle liked the first one so much, I bought two more for small business use.

You can't beat the quality for the price. Go to any major retailer and try to find a laptop with these specs for under 300. Comes with Windows 7 Pro installed, so you get the free upgrade to Windows 10 Pro.

The usual manufacturer software preloaded, but removed easily enough. Also, no DVD drive, which wasn't immediately apparent, but I didn't specifically look for it. But there does appear to be a blank over where a DVD drive could be installed later.

Not very happy.

 

Laptop is right for the price. However, description could be misleading. But I think this is how companies attract buyers. It happened to me with McMall. I returned the laptop because the description said it came with DVD drive and it didn't. I wont...

Cheap. Fast processor

Box specs show OS windows 10 pro and it came with Windows 7. When I purchased this item it seemed that in the description included DVD drive.

Great laptop for the price

 

I would highly recommend this laptop if you do not want to spend a lot of money. Great product for the price. Be prepared to spend time upgrading Windows 7 to 10.

Great price, nice screen, lightweight, pretty thin, decent specs.

Comes with Windows 7 (advertised as Windows 10) and upgrading to Windows 10 was a chore. I had to read several blog posts to figure out why Windows would not upgrade. Once Windows 7 installed almost 1 gb of updates, then it allowed me to upgrade to 10....

Lenovo B50-80 80LT00H6US 15.6" Notebook - Intel Core i3 i3-4005U Dual-Core, 1.70 GHz 4 GB Memory 500 GB HDD, Windows 10 Professional 64-Bit

 

For a simple purpose such as watching DVD connecting with TV, it is OK. But, I am not going to buy for my personal laptop.

Cheap price under $300

It is advertised that its operating system is Window 10. But, it came with Windows 7 professional. No CD ROM Drive
