Please list Specs...

Everyday: All-rounder for work and play
Windows 10
Intel® Pentium® Gold 4415U Processor
RAM: 4 GB / Storage: 128 GB SSD
Up to 6.9 hours battery life

I don't wanna be that guy, but it's got to be said...
It's not Full HD - only 1366 x 768

I know these 2 in 1 machines are more expensive but a Pentium processor and not full HD screen is poor. I would at least expect for £400 a full 1080p screen. Been looking for something similar for my daughter and it is hard to get a decent spec for this price.

I've got the 510, which has a full HD (1080p) screen. Had it since June and paid £379 back then.

For some reason, we're lead to believe that the 520 is an upgrade, despite it being worse in a few areas (screen included). Shame, as the screen is great on this (screen and touch quality).



As previously posted, this one is cheaper and mostly better spec:

Yes, Not FHD IPS like the previous model Yoga 510, Lenovo downgraded this to a cheap TN with half HD and it's crap.

There a Pentiums and Pentiums, this is a Pentium Gold 4415U which is a proper Kaby Lake chip making it essentially a very slightly slower i3 and nothing like the Atom based Apollo Lake Pentiums like the N4200 which will be known as Pentium Silver going forward.

I had exactly the same, paying a premium for a 2 in 1 with a touchscreen. There’s net books with ancient spec for £300 or what you really want for £750...
I ended up biting the bullet and got the Dell 2 in 1 on CyberMonday for £599.
I posted a deal for it ... but it’s long gone now...
Maybe try looking on their website (15% off atm I think) or the Dell outlet is sometimes good.

So in other words it's still rubbish. Its still a Pentium chip which in your words is a slower i3. Yes I get it's the higher Pentium chip but my point was the chip and screen res are not great.

It's not rubbish but whatever, but yes the screen resolution is the only reason I don't have one of these in my hand right now.

Crap specs for the money
