When you intend to purchase a new laptop from a store or online retailer there are so many to choose from and you’ll want to make the correct choice.
Whether you’re looking for a budget machine to use at college or a high specification 2-in-1 laptop, it’s well worth looking at the range of Lenovo laptops.
Before you purchase any laptop you should calculate your budget so you know how much you can afford to spend. Once you have decided on how much you’re prepared to spend, you’re in a better position to compare the laptops in your price range.
Even some of the cheapest Lenovo laptops have all the features that you’ll need. The company has something to suit everyone’s pocket, and expensive doesn’t always mean better.
It’s also important to think about what you need to use your laptop for, to make sure you select a suitable machine.
If you only need a laptop for occasional web browsing or listening to music, then you should be looking at one of the budget machines. If you need a high-speed laptop with tons of storage, it’s worth considering a Lenovo 2-in-1 machine.
When you need to move around with your laptop you’ll want one that’s as portable as possible. Check the weight and size. Choose a laptop which is easy to carry around and has a long battery life. That’s also an important feature when you’re on the move.

This 2-in-1 machine from Lenovo is fitted with the 7th generation Intel Core i7-7500U processor with a speed of 2.7GHz, which may be boosted to 3.5GHz. Internal storage is provided by the 256GB SSD, and external storage can be used if you need extra space.
The laptop is capable of running multiple tasks at the same time without any glitches, thanks to the 8GB RAM it has installed.
We particularly like Lenovo’s Yoga 910 because of its 14-inch full HD IPS 10-point multi-touch screen which has a good resolution that delivers clear images.
The slimline Yoga is extremely portable and great for people on the move, weighing in at 5.6 lbs. Battery life is excellent and up to 9 hours of power is possible following a full charge.
A great feature on this laptop is the backlit keyboard which allows you to type accurately in even the darkest of rooms. The machine is fitted with a webcam that has a pair of built-in microphones for video calling.
The audio quality is good and is delivered by the JBL stereo speakers with Dolby Audio.
The screen can be operated by touch or you can use a stylus which needs to be purchased separately. Including the stylus in with the price would have been better and more cost-effective for the customer.
The laptop is equipped with the usual ports, but an extra USB would have been useful, for a machine in this price bracket, to improve connectivity.
