Lenovo Yoga 520-14IKB (i5-7200U, 256 GB SSD) Laptop Review


Weak chest. While the new Intel processors represent the biggest performance boost in years, the Lenovo Yoga 520-14IKB is still equipped with older Kaby Lake processors. You can find out in this extensive test, why the convertible did not receive our...

functional aluminum and plastic case ; very good touchpad ; suitable keyboard ; active digitizer included ; always remains cool and nearly always quiet ; better battery life due to bigger battery

CPU does not use its full capabilities ; display: low brightness and color space coverage, strange ripple effect, PWM ; USB-C without DisplayPort or power delivery ; hinges are too loose ; 1x1 WLAN ; outdated GPU and CPU options

Lenovo Yoga 520 review: Versatile laptop for its price tag


Lenovo Yoga 520 laptop review: The laptop has 360-degree hinge, support for Windows Tablet mode and Lenovo Active Pen, and here's how it fares in terms of performance.

If you want a touchscreen laptop that can be used as a tablet as well with Stylus support, then the Lenovo Yoga 520 is certainly an option, given it is not as expensive as some of the others in the market. I would still recommend getting more RAM,...

Lenovo Yoga 520


Laptop itself worked fine for about a month, then the hinges started to act up and eventually the right one broke completely. You have to hold the hinge in place while opening or closing the laptop or the entire back panel peels off. I had warranty so...

Fantastic laptop


"Bought for our daughter and she absolutely loves it. Perfect for study and for downtime too. She's a bit wary about folding the screen right back but it all seems ok. "
