The Lenovo B50-45 is a 15.6-inch bestselling budget laptop that received positive reviews for its great price, decent day to day performance, good battery life and ease of use. Reviewers said that with the low price tag the machine performs as expected. Older games and a few newer ones such as Metal Gear Solid 5 will run on low graphical settings with a frame rate of about 21fps which while playable is not ideal. Reviewers were critical of the poor sound quality and cheap feeling keyboard. This machine is very basic but does offer decent performance on day to day tasks and fits even the tightest of budgets.

    Lenovo decided to use the new Beema APU from AMD in its B50-45. Only 390 Euros (~$494) is due for the simple office notebook with a size of 15.6-inches. However, the computer definitely reflects its low price tag.
