Reviews for the Lenovo B50-70
No endurance. Lenovo sees its B50-70 destined to be a workhorse. A matte Full HD screen, powerful Core i5 processor, and a high-capacity hard drive let buyers prick up their ears in this direction. However, the laptop exhibits shortcomings in keyboard and battery life.

Model: Affordable and configurable; is the tagline used by Lenovo in regards of the Lenovo B50-70. At first glance, the Lenovo B50-70 looks fairly simplistic in design especially with the full matte black chassis and metallic front cover. Edges and lines are clean and elegant making it a perfect business laptop. Small businesses are the target demographic and users will certainly be impressed with the productivity and rich multimedia features of the device. The Windows 8.1 64 bit laptop packs in a 15.6 inch 16:9 TN LED panel with a matte finish.
Display quality is decent with good contrast and colors. Audio quality is excellent with stereo speakers driven using Dolby Advanced Audio v2 technology. There are many configurations but the Lenovo B50-70 variant comes with an Intel i5-4210U processor clocked at 1.7GHz, 8GB DDR3L RAM and an AMD Radeon R5 M230 GPU. Users can select either a HDD or hybrid HDD with SSD cache with a capacity of up to 1 TB each. Other technology on the laptop comes in the form of an optional optical DVD drive, 2 USB 3.0 ports, 1 USB 2.0 port, 4-in-1 card reader and HDMI out. The Lenovo B50-70 features a good battery life of up to 6 hours using a Lithium-Ion cell rated at 2200 mAh.
AMD Radeon R5 M230: Low-end graphics card based on the GCN architecture ("Sun" GPU).
