Low budget laptop for basic computing
Display and Design
The Lenovo IdeaPad G50-30 (80G000D4IN) sports a 15.6-inch HD TN GL Flat LED backlit display which responds quickly and imparts enhanced brightness with a resolution of 1,366 x 768 pixels. It is wrapped in an unfussy solid black coloured outfit which has a thickness of 24.8mm and a weight of 2.4kg.
Configuration and OS
Doing duty on the inside is a 2.1GHz Intel Celeron dual-core N2840 processor. Assisting it in executing multitasking is a 2GB DDR3 RAM which operates at 1,333MHz and can be further expanded up to 16GB via two DIMM slots. The integrated Intel HD GPU is capable of handling only simple games and videos. It is devoid of any user friendly OS which is nothing abnormal in this price.
Camera, Storage and Multimedia
The Lenovo IdeaPad G50-30 (80G000D4IN) has been spotted with a 0.3MP webcam which can record HD videos and handle high resolution video calls smoothly. It takes care of the storage needs of the user comfortably with a 500GB SATA hard disk. The SuperMulti tray-in drive can be used for exchanging data via disks. With dual stereo speakers of 1.5W each and Dolby Advanced Audio v2 technology, it delivers immersive sound quality.
Battery and Connectivity
The Lenovo IdeaPad G50-30 (80G000D4IN) is fuelled by a 4 cell Li-ion battery which promises to deliver uninterrupted service for up to 4 hours. Moving to the connectivity section, it gets features like Ethernet port, two USB 2.0 slots, HDMI out, one USB 3.0 slot, Bluetooth v4.0, digital media reader and WLAN.
The Lenovo IdeaPad G50-30 (80G000D4IN) falls in the range of low priced laptops which can be used for basic computing needs. It does impress with features like good battery and powerful optical drive but lacks any OS.
