Reviews for the Lenovo Yoga 530-14

Lenovo Yoga 530 review: Hands-on
Source: Tech Advisor English
Our initial impressions of the Yoga 530 is quite good. It looks like a solid option for anyone wanting a mid-range computer and has the added benefice of a premium look and a nice touch screen. The starting price of the laptop is under £400, which is great for anyone on a budget and students.

Lenovo Yoga 530 first look
Source: Trusted Reviews English
At first glance, the Lenovo 530 looks like a solid, affordable convertible that could be ideal for students and buyers on a budget. However, until we get a chance to more thoroughly test the device and receive firm pricing on all the different configurations, it’s hard to accurately gauge its overall value.

Hands on: Lenovo Flex 14 review
Source: Techradar English
The Lenovo Flex 14 (known as Yoga 530 outside the US) is a good choice if you're in the market for a 2-in-1 laptop, but don't necessarily have the budget for its larger sibling, the Yoga 730.

Mindent összevetve azt kell mondanunk, hogy a Lenovo Yoga 530 azok számára lehet ideális választás, akik viszonylag olcsó, mégis könnyen hordozható, funkciókban gazdag társat keresnek maguk mellé. A hosszú távú használat támogatása érdekében azonban javasoljuk, hogy bővítsük a rendszert +4GB RAM-mal és a kreatív felhasználóknak a Lenovo Active Pen is hasznára lesz.
Positive: Good price; elegant design; nice display.
