I had to trade in my cherished but broken MacBook Pro for a Lenovo G50-80 and I was wondering if I have any chance of getting Yosemite to run on it because it has a Broadwell processor, and not one of the ones used in the new Macbooks/iMacs etc.

These are my specs:

Model: Lenovo G50-80
CPU: Intel Core i5 -5200U CPU @ 2.20 GHz
Graphics: Intel HD Graphics 5500
Storage: Samsung 840 250 GB SSD (from my old MacBook)
WiFi: Intel Dual-Band Wireless -AC 3160
Bluetooth: Intel Wireless Bluetooth (couldn't find the model number)

Thanks a lot for any help on this!

10.10.3 has Broadwell support, but not a lot is known about it. You might want to do a google search to read about early work.
