Now, more and more laptop manufacturers are keen to provide the 2-in-1. Not surprisingly, given the hybrid device is increasingly in demand by consumers today. The main reason is because the 2-in-1 is a multifunctional device. It can be used to perform tasks or to watch and play games.
Lenovo is one of the PC manufacturers who provide the 2-in-1 device. Companies from China’s usually display the 2-in-1 in the ranks of Yoga. As the name suggests, Yoga series laptops usually have a hinge that can be rotated up to 360 degrees. Lenovo Yoga 510-14IKB no exception this time. Here’s the full review.
Just like Yoga from Lenovo laptop line more, Lenovo Yoga 510-14IKB aimed at those who want to find the 2-in-1. It has a hinge that can be rotated up to 360 degrees, so that the screen and keyboard into one and it can be used like a tablet.
Therefore, do not be surprised if you’ll find the power button on the right side of the device. Thus, he could immediately be activated as a tablet. However, I could not find the volume buttons on the device. As with the Lenovo Yoga 500IBD. Although it may seem simple, the lack of volume knob is quite annoying, especially when it is used in three modes in addition to laptop mode.
With Intel Core i5-7200U and 4GB of RAM, the Lenovo Yoga 500-14IKB can be used for everyday tasks smoothly, ranging from typing documents, make presentations to surf the Internet. You will not encounter any problems when you open some programs, though.
In addition, because it is a piece of 2-in-1, you can adjust the mode that you use to suit your activity. Work becomes more productive when you can use the keyboard while when you just want to watch, you can use a tent or stand mode.
Just like most laptops, Yoga 510-14IKB equipped with a keyboard. Although personally, we feel the keyboard on this laptop is too shallow so it feels less comfortable, especially if you’re used to using a keyboard mechanical.
In addition to daily work, Lenovo also completes this Yoga laptop with AMD Radeon R5 M430. By doing so, you also can use this laptop for gaming, though perhaps not well-known games that weight. One of the games that we tried when using this laptop is DOTA 2 and it can be played smoothly. However, once we try to play Civilization VI, we can only play on minimal settings. When we tried to use the medium setting, the game became the very lag time of the start screen packed with buildings.
Here is the benchmark of the Lenovo Yoga 510-14IKB. When compared with the Lenovo Yoga 500-14IBD, laptop benchmark results is a little lost. For your information, one of the things that distinguish the two is the graphics card in it. If Yoga 510-14IKB using GPU from AMD, Yoga 500-14IBD using graphics cards from NVIDIA.
Although in terms of the performance of Yoga 510-14IKB slightly inferior to its predecessor, Yoga 500-14IBD, but in terms of battery life, he was a little better. Yoga laptop this time can last almost an hour longer with a battery life of 4 hours 12 minutes. One thing that I became the weakness is due to Yoga 510-14IKB less comfortable when used as a tablet. With a weight of 1.75 kg, it did not fairly heavy as a laptop. However, when I use it as a tablet, I can not hold it with one hand for a long time. Instead, I had to put it on a table or on your lap. Usually, this makes me prefer to use another mode.
Not a lot of embedded applications on the Lenovo Yoga 510-14IKB. One is Lenovo Companion. Here, you can read the instructions for use, accessories for Yoga 510.
Here, you can also check on the warranty of Yoga 510, check the condition of the battery, storage and memory and also perform the update system. Lenovo also completed Yoga 510 with McAfee anti-virus.
Battery life is quite durable
Quite heavy as a tablet
Not many features
Lenovo Yoga 510-14IKB has a satisfactory performance, as well as laptop ranks of other Lenovo Yoga. It also is equipped with graphics cards from AMD so that it can be used to play games, even just casual games like DOTA 2. However, for those who claimed to be a gamer, this would be a better value.
Just as the ranks of the Yoga laptop or device 2-in-1 other, the main selling points of this laptop is that it multifunctional. One drawback is that when compared with the 2-in-1 screen is removable so that it can be a tablet, Yoga is quite heavy when folded into a tablet.
