Lenovo made sure that fans of technology don’t see Yoga as Eastern discipline of mind and body exercise, but as a premium hybrid laptop. The first models in this series have been premium devices with premium price, but now Lenovo has something for those with lower requirements.

Before we say anything about the new Yoga 500, we must commend the red version. Even today, when the producers quite freely experiment with the design of the laptop, it is really refreshing to see a laptop in this variant of red. The ladies will definitely be delighted. You can check out some white and black models on Lenovo website.

The rest of the design doesn’t stand out much from what we saw in more expensive Yogas. We are particularly pleased with the black brushed aluminum around the keyboard, which goes well with red paint of the shell.

The main characteristic of the series remained the same – the screen rotates full circle, so device turns from a laptop into a tablet. Even with the number 5 in its name, Yoga 500 has a 14 inch screen, and we mention it because there are 15-inch models. Perhaps the 14 inch one could have been named by number 400, but who are we to get involved in Lenovo marketing ideas.

Weight of 14-inch model is 1.8 kilograms, which is good if you look at it as the laptop, but not as a tablet. That is why it should be considered primarily as a laptop.

The characteristics of the screen, one of the most important components of this device are divided. Contrast, display and color intensity, and viewing angles are excellent. On the other hand, the lighting could be better, a reflective coating is pointing out that fact even more. This simply means that you will enjoy the dark areas, while in brighter light you will try to find some shade.

The main feature of the series 500 – significantly lower price compared to other members of the Yoga family, has been achieved by cutting the power of the hardware. It’s nothing drastic, but the configuration of this laptop is adjusted to Intel i3 processor and 720p-screen resolution. This means that this laptop’s hardware is meant for the group of users who intensively use the Internet and perform those everyday tasks carried out on a middle class laptop.

What makes this laptop better than the competition’s is the aforementioned rotation of the screen, and overall quality which is very high.

Laptop comes with Windows 8.1, but there is no reason not to make an upgrade to 10. As for the battery, standard 720p video playback succeeded to bring it down to 0% in 6 hours and 34 minutes. It is quite good result for a laptop of this price class.

In the end, we come to the conclusion that Lenovo has created another good Yoga family member. If those more expensive models were attractive but expensive, now there is a cheaper alternative.
