Lenovo Yoga 530-14IKB (i5-8250U, 8 GB, 256 GB SSD) Convertible Review

 

Office acrobat. Lenovo's new 530 series is aimed at price-conscious users and companies that see the benefits of convertible devices. The Yoga 530-14IKB is priced competitively, but there are some compromises associated with this low cost, including...

affordable base model ; solid, stylish and well-constructed case ; TPM 2.0 & a fingerprint sensor ; impressive input devices ; extremely low display black value ; high contrast ratio ; good CPU turbo boost utilization (CB R15) ; quick PCIe SSD ; quiet...

rather heavy ; tricky to open ; the hinges are too tight ; the display bounces when using the device ; slow SD card reader ; only 1x1 Wi-Fi ; no maintenance cover ; battery only accessible by removing the bottom case ; the display could be better ;...

The Lenovo Yoga 530-14IKB is an impressive device with some compromises. As mentioned initially, we expected there to be some drawbacks because of the device’s comparatively low starting price. Hence, the volume of negative points is somewhat...

Lenovo Yoga 530 Review | Trusted Reviews

 

It's slick, affordable, and packed with AMD hardware. Can the Lenovo Yoga 530 succeed?

Balanced performance from AMD processor ; Better GPU than Intel integrated graphics ; Decent, smart exterior

Slower than Intel in applications ; Poor screen quality ; Underwhelming battery life

The Lenovo Yoga 530 is a solid machine, but with inevitable compromises and no stand-out features

Lenovo Yoga 530 review

 

Can the Lenovo Yoga 530 bend over backwards to succeed?

Reasonable processing power ; Intel-beating GPU speeds ; Smart ; Comfortable keyboard, versatile exterior

Dull, disappointing screen ; Underwhelming battery life ; Intel has better CPU speed

The Lenovo Yoga 530 has solid design and reasonable AMD-powered performance, but it doesn’t stand out in any particular area and has a disappointing screen

Lenovo Yoga 530 review: Can AMD Ryzen to the challenge with this 2-in-1?

 

Lenovo's newest mid-range 2-in-1 laptop is powered by an AMD Ryzen 7 processor. It's not half bad, but it's no gaming machine

Fast speeds for price ; Responsive touchscreen ; Smooth 360 degree hinge

Average display quality ; Awful battery life ; Bland design

If you absolutely need a laptop/tablet hybrid, then the Lenovo Yoga 530 isn’t a bad choice but for £999 I had been hoping for more. If you think you can live without a 2-in-1, then I’d suggest looking into the sleek and speedy Asus ZenBook 13 instead.

Lenovo Yoga 530

 

Lenovo has lead the way in the 2-in-1 market for a long time. The Yoga 530 comes with AMD Ryzen, but choosing Intel might be better value. Find out in our full review.

  (Rating Hidden)

The Yoga 530-14IKB has a trick up its sleeve with a 2-in-1 design that means it can be used as both a laptop and a large tablet. But can this bend-over-backwards machine deliver where it counts on such a tight budget? Our in-depth lab test takes a...
