very disappointing - breaks quickly
Laptop itself worked fine for about a month, then the hinges started to act up and eventually the right one broke completely. You have to hold the hinge in place while opening or closing the laptop or the entire back panel peels off. I had warranty so i sent it in to lenovo, who didn't respond for a week beyond the time they said it would take, told me they'd have a look, and a week later told me it was user damage, even though its clearly a manufacturing error, and would cost me half the price of the laptop to fix. Recently, about a year on fr...om buying the laptop, the pen pressure sensitivity is screwing up, where the screen doesn't register the difference between the pen hovering and the pen actually on the screen. There's also significant input lag for the pen. The battery also runs out very quickly, even on energy saving mode. I will never buy a Lenovo laptop again and I would recommend no one else does either.
Not bad. Doea everything I need
Got this for uni originally so i could use the tablet feature and write. That did not work out so well. Never really go the hang of using it and the writing functionality just did not seem intuative or easy. That said it goes ok. Not too bad for battery life. Keyboard is good. Screen is nice but suffers from glare. Really needs an antiglare screen protector. I take this away for work occasionally. It is a bit heavy in the briefcase. Overall the performance has been good. Battery does not seem to have deteriorated over the almost 2 years I have had it. I did have to buy a laptop chill mat to get 4 more usb ports to use. More ports on the unit would have been good
This is a phenomenal 2-in-1 laptop tablet. It is fast, lightweight and just powerful enough. You definitely can't play any serious games on this, but it is perfect for work and study. The only other con I can mention is that there is no CD input.
The keyboard backlight makes the laptop easy to use in all situations. Very handy as well is the multiple USB slots and even a HDMI slot.
I highly recommend this laptop to students as it is fantastic in many different scenarios.
Computer randomly crashes: Lenovo response poor
The Lenovo brand has taken a dive for. I was after a AOI and not really wanting to buy a Mac. So JB-HiFi had the Lenovo on offer and I was persuaded to take it. It began randomly crashing after about six weeks, and this afternoon, the Compliance Manager accepted it was 'a dodgy' but would only offer a refund, and no assistance or advice about basic issues like transferring data and completely wiping the hard drive before handing it back. I've now been told that any further response will be treated as spam, unless it refers to the date at which I will take back their dodgy machine. ".. , the only resolution that will be offered is a refund through the retailer. "

Excellent, Works Perfect , Value for money
Was a bit sceptic about the Lenovo brand. But now feel it’s a great buy. The Lenovo yoga 520 has a very responsive touch screen and laptop handles the program we use with ease. Battery life is Great. but depends on the brightness settings. Overall is great affordable lap top
