Reviews for the Lenovo G505s-20255

Caught in the middle. Lenovo chose AMD APU's Richland generation for the new G505s series. In addition, there is also a dedicated Radeon GPU in the notebooks so that the two graphic cores are working in a Crossfire connection. It sounds like Lenovo is offering a notebook for the economical gamer. Our test determines whether that is true or not.

Comment

AMD Radeon HD 8450G + Radeon HD 8570M Dual Graphics: Dual Graphics (asymmetrical CrossFire) combination of a dedicated Radeon HD 8570M  and a 8450G processor graphics card (in the processor core of the Richland A6-Series). Only in some cases faster than the dedicated GPU alone and furthermore it sometimes suffers from micro stuttering.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

A6-5350M: Dual-core processor with only one FPUs and an integrated Radeon HD 8450G graphics card. Top model of the "Richland" A6 series.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


15.60":

2.5 kg:

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.


Lenovo: Lenovo ( "Le" as in the English word legend and "novo" (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company. From 2004, the company has been the largest laptop manufacturer in China and got the fourth largest manufacturer worldwide after the acquisition of IBM's PC division in 2005. In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company also produces monitors, projectors, servers, etc.

In 2011, Lenovo acquired the majority of Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer. In 2014, Lenovo took over Motorola Mobility, which gave them a boost in the smartphone market.

From 2014 to 2016 Lenovo's market share in the global notebook market was 20-21%, ranking second behind HP. However, the distance decreased gradually. In the smartphone market, Lenovo did not belong to the Top 5 global manufacturers in 2016.


79.67%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
