Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
Your difficulties in searching for memory maybe due to the type of processor that is installed. Referencing a U.S. memory manufacturer / seller's website shows that the B50-30 with the Intel Celeron processor can only be upgraded to 8 GBs of memory while the Intel 4th Gen version can be upgrade to 16 MBs. Although there is differences in the maximum memory that can be installed, they both use the DDR3L memory modules. For your reference I have listed memory requirements as shown at Crucial Memory.....
Click here for the Intel 4th Gen processor.
Click here for the Intel Celeron processor
In viewing your model number of B50-30 MCA25MH, you should have the Celeron processor in your machine.

Thanks for your answer Majestic. What me got confused is that when i look up the processor details it shows DDR3L 1333Mhz memory. Checked it here: http://ark.intel.com/products/81071/Intel-Celeron-Processor-N2830-1M-Cache-up-to-2_41-GHz So it will work with 1600 or 1866Mhz ?

Yes, it will work. The memory will just operated at the speed the motherboard / processor supports.

Maybe a not so smart question. But does it need to be the crucial ram in the links you provided or can it be any brand of ram that is DDR3L sodimm 1600mhz?

It can be from any DDR3L memory retailer.
I just like using Crucial as example as their memory selector is pretty accurate.
