Reviews for the Lenovo IdeaPad G50-45

75% Lenovo IdeaPad G50-45 Notebook Review Update | Notebookcheck
Value for money marvel with an AMD core? For a low 370 Euros (~$479), Lenovo's G50-45 entry-level model has quite a few highlights: a quad-core APU and a hybrid hard drive are real buying incentives in this category. But is that enough to compete with rivals based on Intel technology?

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.


72.33%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
