Lenovo B50-50 80S2000QGE Notebook Review


Dark screen. Lenovo delivers a basic office laptop furnished with a Core i3 processor dubbed B50-50. The manufacturer demands a price of just below 450 Euros (~$506). The laptop is cheaper when Windows 10 is not needed.

Core i3 processor ; plenty of storage ; low noise ; low temperatures

12 month warranty only ; no maintenance hatch ; poor sounding mono-speaker ; Fast Ethernet only

Lenovo delivers a fundamental, 15.6-inch office laptop called B50-50. The installed Core i3 processor is more than enough for office and Internet applications. It still has enough reserves. The laptop always runs quietly and hardly heats up. There is...

Lenovo B50 Review: A Touchscreen All-In-One PC With Some Guts


The Lenovo B50 is a standard all-in-one PC in many ways. The beefy processor and discrete graphics are not quite so standard. This is the Lenovo B50 review.

All-in-one PC's with discrete graphics are rare. The B50 has this, and a beefy processor/RAM to take advantage of it.

Even with discrete graphics, this isn't going to replace a full-blown gaming rig. I doubt that most looking for an all-in-one PC would expect it to.

Lenovo B50 Touch Review


Featuring a big, rich display and solid speakers, the $1,399 Lenovo B50 Touch does everything a quality, family-friendly all-in-one should do. Its 23.8-inch full-HD screen is ideal for movies and touch games, and its strong CPU and graphics performance...

Crisp, full-HD display ; Strong CPU and graphics performance ; Loud JBL speakers

Pricey ; Stiff keyboard ; Some may want to wait for RealSense version

The Lenovo B50 Touch is a powerful and attractive family all-in-one, if you're willing to pay a premium for it.

A ridiculously cheap 15.6in laptop but the Lenovo B50 is very slow and build quality's not great

Works Great


It does everything it says it does. I bought it for school and surfing (researching) on the internet ; Touchscreen, keyboard, software everything has been working for 6 months without any hiccup at all ; Highly recommend this product to any student or...

The current price is more than 2 Ben Franklins higher than I paid here on Newegg last February. Strange that back to school pricing has caused it to go up this high

Windows 8.1 is inferior


fast, light and good battery life

Windows 8 is very sub par. Selecting a window from pinned windows or alt tab is broken badly

Who knew ? You did.


One can spend twice as much elsewhere and not be satisfied. Check out this unit.

Very reliable manufacturer with a strong pedigree.Excellent battery time--fast enough,both in clockspeed and what have you. Feels substantial,keyboard easy,touchscreen versatile. Has Webcam,mic,USB 3 (one) with two USB 2.0 ports, apparently the Wifi...

Little bit of bloatware, but after running freeware IoBit Uninstaller no probs still much storage and much to recommend

Lenovo B50-50 80S2000BUK


SSD drive means super performance

Too chunky

Lenovo B50-50 80S20002UK


SSD Drive makes it a good quick laptop particularly on startup. Good slim design but still has DVD drive and all the normal ports you would expect on a thicker and heavier laptop. Excellent value for money.

SSD drive is only 128gb which is perfect for business use but would fill up quite quickly if being used to download films or large files. If being used for big files you would need to have an external drive to store your data after a relatively short...

It's cheap. Easy to set up and use.

It's cheap so it's a bit flimsy but at the price you can't really complain.
