Lenovo B50-30 review


Can this impressive £199 laptop trump pricier rivals?

Comfortable and sensible keyboard ; Subtle and smart design ; Bargain price

Sluggish performance ; Poor low-resolution screen ; Average battery life

A bargain basement option that's got enough power to cope despite obvious budget cuts elsewhere.

So, do I recommend this Lenovo B50-30 23.8 inch All-in-one? Absolutely. I don't expect the fan issue to be widespread; it is something that can happen to any machine from any manufacturer.

I'm finding that my computer, even though it still has a large amount of hard drive space, is going really slow and has even not let me open up pictures before now.
