The Lenovo Yoga 300 and Lenovo Yoga 500 are two laptops with a rotating screen designed to satisfy those users who want to experience the touch universe of Windows without losing productivity and without making a large outlay. These devices come in 11.6-inch and 14-inch formats with HD resolution , the possibility of enjoying the latest version of the Windows 10 operating system or a design that remains competitive in both thickness and weight. These two models are already available on the market for a starting price of 400 euros for the Lenovo Yoga 300 model and 600 euros for the Lenovo Yoga 500 model. We tell you its main details.

We begin the review with the most compact model, the Lenovo Yoga 300. This team goes on to compete directly in the segment of equipment such as the Acer Aspire Switch 10E or the HP Stream 11 x360 . It has a 11.6-inch format with HD resolution of 1,366 x 768 pixels and multi-touch capability. As is customary in the Yoga family, a rotating screen design could not be missing that can be folded up to 360 degrees to use it as a tablet to use. Along the way, we can leave it in various positions to squeeze all the juice out of the Windows experience. Finishing with the design, the Lenovo Yoga 300 raises its weight to 1.39 kilos and its thickness to 2.1 centimeters.

In its guts we find an Intel Celeron N2840 dual-core processor with a power of 2.1 GHz , along with a 4 GB RAM . This point must be highlighted since many computers of this type remain in the 2 GB of RAM, something that limits our movements quite a bit when browsing with several tabs or watching video. To store a greater number of files and applications, a traditional 500 GB hard drive has been chosen . The Lenovo Yoga 300 is available for a starting price of 400 euros.

Lenovo Yoga 500

The second of the models is the Lenovo Yoga 500 . In this case, the jump is made to the 14-inch format , although the HD resolution of 1,366 x 768 pixels is maintained. Nor could it lack the tactile capacity to squeeze all the possibilities of the Windows platform. Or the possibility of folding the screen to place it in different positions, such as in store mode to view videos and movies, with the screen in an inverted position to use touch apps or in large format tablet mode. This equipment is available in red, black and white tones. Regarding its measurements, it maintains a competitive weight of 1.8 kilos.

In its guts is a dual-core Intel Core i3-4030U processor with a power of 1.9 GHz. Intel's integrated technologies will allow us to work as if we actually had four process cores. This chip is combined with a 4 GB RAM . But above all, the great news of this team is the inclusion of a dedicated NVIDIA GeForce GT 920M graphics card with 2 GB of memory. Thanks to this, we will be able to play and use applications with heavier graphics. Like its younger brother, it uses a traditional format hard drive with a capacity of 500 GB. The Lenovo Yoga 500 is available in the market for a price of 600 euros.
