  • viewing angles, contrast, good input devices, quiet in practice, no throttling in the stress test, build quality of the case, good port layout, versatile thanks to 360-degree hinges
  • battery runtime, no maintenance hatch, non-removable battery, hardly usable under sunlight, non-illuminated keyboard, no SSD
  • The Lenovo Yoga 500-14ISK is a solid 14-inch convertible for multiple usage scenarios. If you are already looking for a convertible, you probably know how you will use it. Comfortable surfing in tablet or stand mode on the couch as well as the video playb...

  • Good keyboard, Plenty of storage, Ethernet port, Screen rotates through 360 degrees
  • Moderatequality screen, Average battery life
  • You can't expect a top-notch laptop for the price Lenovo asks for the Yoga 500, particularly at the entry level. There's plenty of storage, the keyboard is comfortable to use, and the ability to rotate the screen through 360 degrees may appeal...

  • The Lenovo Yoga 500 offers the bare minimum a notebook from this class can offer, spec-wise that is. We are presented with ULV CPU from Intel (Pentium 3805U), integrated graphics, and budget TN touch panel that didn't do too well in our tests...

  • Decent connectivity options; 1TB hard drive offers lot of space; Ethernet port included;
  • Keyboard needs work; Screen offers low resolution and terrible viewing angles; Mediocre machine with no sense of individuality;
  • Unfortunately, that sense of “ordinary” is one that permeates the Yoga 500 at every turn, with very little to save it. Maybe we’re just immune to the idea of a hybrid computer being special, or maybe we’re just sick of seeing sub-par computer parts being passed to customers for prices that feel like they don’t make a lot of sense...

  • Robust build quality with solid hinges to support the 4 different layouts, Powerful processor and quality hardware, Premium notebook at an affordable price, High contrast and decent viewing angles
  • Too heavy to be used as a portable tablet, No maintenance hatch making upgrades impossible and a non-removable battery
  • What makes a convertible better than any run of the mill tablet is the added firepower that only a laptop can provide, and the Lenovo Yoga 500 does exactly that. Admittedly, the Yoga 500 is not the most eye-catching hybrid around, but it is among the most budget-friendly ones currently available in Australia, with plenty of performance oriented hardware fitted inside...

  • Sleek and striking design, Good selection of ports
  • Appalling battery life, Underwhelming display, Very slow to boot and load apps
  • Nevertheless, that's of small consolation when the Yoga 500 lacks even basic stamina to get through a day. With its sluggish performance and atrocious battery life, I simply can't recommend it, even as a budget 2-in-1 device. There are far better alternat...

  • well built, nice sober looks, decent IPS screen, nice keyboard if you don't mind short travel keys, good speakers, well priced
  • dim and glossy display, glitchy trackpad and wireless, subpar performance, average battery life in daily use, upgrading the storage would probably void warranty
  • On a first look the 14-inch Lenovo Yoga 500 is a pretty nice laptop. It gets Skylake hardware, a FHD IPS touchscreen, a nice bakclit keyboard and it's well built and good looking. Once you start using it though, you'll notice the occasional performance hi...

  • Quick to fully recharge, Large 1TB hard drive offers plenty of storage space, Laptop copes well with games, both for casual gamers and those that are more serious, The display is clear, sharp and responsive to touch, Simple and straightforward to use
  • Battery life is disappointing, not lasting as long as we'd have liked, Laptop only offers a front-facing camera and the image quality isn't as good as we'd have hoped, A little bulky and heavy to hold when converted into a tablet
  • The Lenovo Yoga 500 is a good performing mid-range laptop that has the added bonus of being able to convert into a tablet. While it's a simple and straifghtforward machine that has plenty of storage space and the ability to also be used in tent or stand m...
