Affordable machine with decent efficiency
Display and Design
The Lenovo B50-70 (59-434773) sports a 15.6-inch HD LED backlit display offering a resolution of 1,366 x 768 pixels. With the matte anti glare finish on the top, the screen provides clear visibility even under the sun. It is wrapped in a simple yet robust black coloured outfit which has a thickness of 24.7mm and a weight of 2.3kg.
Processor and OS
For driving its processes, the Lenovo B50-70 (59-434773) depends on a 1.9GHz Intel Core i3 processor from the fourth generation series. Assisting it is a paltry 2GB DDR3 RAM which can be further expanded up to 8GB through the single unused DIMM slots. The 1GB AMD Radeon R5 M230 graphics unit allows you to play moderately powerful games and movies swiftly. Being a low budget machine, it lacks any preloaded OS.
Camera, Storage and Multimedia
The Lenovo B50-70 (59-434773) is armed with a simple webcam for video calling and takes care of the storage needs of the user with a Serial-ATA HDD of 500GB. It even has a Tray Load DVD RW Drive so that you can store info on disks and retrieve them when needed. The stereo speakers provide decent audio quality while watching movies.
Battery and Connectivity
Powered by a 4 cell Li-ion battery, the Lenovo B50-70 (59-434773) claims to provide up to 4 hours of service on the trot. The networking and connectivity features come in the form of Ethernet port, WLAN, Bluetooth v4.0, two USB 3.0 slots, one USB 2.0 port, HDMI out and digital media reader.
The Lenovo B50-70 (59-434773) is a budget friendly machine which is capable of executing moderately demanding professional and personal tasks. Features like 1GB AMD graphics unit, tray load optical drive, two advanced USB slots and sound battery make it a good deal. It lacks a good RAM and an user friendly platform though.
