The Yoga-500 series was introduced in 2015 and now goes into the third generation with the Yoga 520. The 500 designation shows that they are the mid-range of Lenovo's convertible portfolio, which costs at a much affordable price. The model number of our test unit containing "14" indicates that it is equipped with a 14-inch display, which is rather rare among non-business notebooks.
Work from home, or pop it in your bag on a day out. Starting at 1.75kg, it’ll easily go wherever life takes you.
Designed with precision
Finished in sleek aluminum, the Yoga 520 is available in Mineral Grey, Onyx Black, and Metallic Gold. Its precision-cut bevelled edges were designed for a clean and modern look, and an updated touchpad provides smooth comfort and improved control.
