The Lenovo Yoga 530 or Flex 14 in the US is a 2 in 1 laptop spilling with features starting at around £400 or $400. There are a number of models in the range, but I’m looking at the entry level configuration with a Pentium Gold processor and a standard, 1366×768 so-called HD screen, rather than the Full HD screen of its more expensive counterparts.
Even this base model has a 14” touch screen display, 128GB SSD storage, 4GB of RAM, a 360 degree hinge that provides no less than four usage scenarios, fast charging, a full sized HDMI port, three USB 3 ports including one modern type C port, a HD webcam and up to 10 hours of battery life. It sounds like it could be the perfect everyday laptop and together with its support for the optional Lenovo Active pen, this could also be an ideal student laptop.
