Consumer review (currys.co.uk)

LENOVO Yoga 520 14" Touchscreen 2 in 1 - Gold Metallic

 

Good, well built piece of equipment. Works well as laptop and tablet with adequate screen size.

Battery could last just that little bit longer, but may improve as still new.

LENOVO Yoga 520 14" Touchscreen 2 in 1 - Gold Metallic

 

pretty easy to set up and use, nice slim fairly light and modern style, very quiet with no sound from fans or the hard drive, very responsive because of the solid state hard drive, overall I would say its very good, with it being a two in one you can...

I have accidently touched the power button on the side and turned it off when I am using it, but in all fairness I have a damaged spine and use it mainly in a recliner chair so that might not help,

It’s so versatile easy to use and easy to swap from netbook to tablet

Could do with a longer lasting battery or a car charger as I use it in my van and like to keep it switched on

Light and compact, good performance so far. I like the size.

It's early days but I'm a little concerned that the battery life may not reach expectations.

Love the beautiful pictures at start up.

Finger print recognition doesn't work and it's a pain having to type in the code every time to start.
