What's the difference: model and keyboard?

I'm trying to fix up an old G50-70 laptop and I might be overthinking, but I have 2 questions. Searching the Lenovo support pages for drivers I can see "G50-70", "G50-70 20351" and "G50-70 80DYCTO". Windows and the label under the laptop tells me it's the 20351-version. But when I search for the serial I get that it's a 80DYCTO. I guess it doesn't really matter if I get drivers for either of them?


It needs a new keyboard. There seem to be three different manufacturers and from Google Liteon seems to be the best followed by Chicony and Sunrex for Lenovos Thinkpad series. Does anyone know if the same is applicable for the G50-70 or should I just get whichever of them I can find in stock?

Hi friend,


Welcome to Lenovo Community! And happy to have you here.


As I understand that you have query regarding Model of G50-70 80DYCTO

Here CTO denotes the system is configured to order & a CTO unit may have a wide range of possible components/warranties and therefore a wide range of cost/value.

For Keyboard you can go with anyone of them depending upon stock or for complete list check this, page no. 84


I hope the above information helped you.
