Efficient low budget machine
Display and Build
The Lenovo essential G50-45 (80300GWIN) carries a 15.6-inch HD TN GL Flat display which features a native resolution of 1,366 x 768 pixels but manages rich graphics efficiently. It comes wrapped in a completely black chassis which has a thickness of 24.8 mm and a weight of 2.5 kg.
CPU and OS
At the heart of the machine, you can find a 2.4GHz AMD Quad Core A6 6310 processor working in tandem with a regular 4GB DDR3 RAM. For better management of multiple tasks, you can use the 2 user accessible slots for expanding the RAM's capacity up to 8GB.
The preloaded AMD Radeon R4 graphics processor has the potential to deal with decent quality videos and games comfortably. It runs on the latest 64 bit Windows 8.1 OS which is really appreciable.
Camera, Storage and Multimedia
The Lenovo essential G50-45 (80300GWIN) flaunts a HD webcam above the display to manage high resolution video calls smoothly. With the 500GB SATA hard disk, you will have sufficient space for storing a library of files of all sorts. The DVD RW Drive allows you to store important data on CDs and DVDs. Powered by Dolby Advanced Audio, the stereo speakers deliver loud and crisp music.
Battery and Connectivity
The Lenovo essential G50-45 (80300GWIN) keeps the show running with a 4 cell Li-ion battery. The connectivity and networking features come in the form of Ethernet, Bluetooth v4.0, digital media reader, HDMI out, 2 USB 2.0 slots, 1 USB 3.0 port and WLAN.
Despite being available at a decent budget, the Lenovo essential G50-45 (80300GWIN) is packed with some interesting features like the latest Windows 8.1 OS, HD webcam, optical drive, quality speakers and USB 3.0 slot. However, Lenovo has been able to do so by skipping an Intel processor.
