Re: operating system for g50-80

It supports win 8.1 and win 10 home 64. I would go with win10 home 64.

What is your machines full model number?

Hi arya201213

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

Certified Operating System for the G50-80 machines upon original release and testing was with :


Windows 8.1

Linpus lite/DOS

 

Other factors to be considered are the user's personal applications and usage/intentions.

 

Regards

Re: operating system for g50-80

Could you run MS sysinfo and state what model number your machine is?

I could not find any model with the number you stated.

Re: operating system for g50-80

Hi All, 

 

It may be better having the MTM/ machine number from either from the sticker or from the parts look up page

 

And if poster would be able to verify:

 

G50-80 Laptop (Lenovo) - Type 80E5 - Model 80E503GBIH

 

Motherboard Part number : 5B20K62236 MBL G50-80NOKI3-5005U(P) UMA 

2GHz Intel Core i3-5005U 5th Gen processor (codename: Broadwell)

4GB DDR3 RAM

1TB 5400rpm Serial ATA hard drive
15.6-inch screen, Intel HD Graphics
Current OS: DOS
4 hours battery life, 2.5kg laptop

 

So it came with DOS (no Windows operating system) and is also compatible with Creators update for Windows 10 Home and pre-tested with Windows 8.1. 

 

Available drivers for both Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 from here on the support page.

 

Now to decide which is best for you, you may install each within its trial period as 4GB ram may be a challenge in its performance along with the applications you intended to use it with.

 

Regards
