Good with intel i5 , overpriced with intel i7Posted .I would recommend this to a friend
This is my replacement for a 2012 Lenovo Ideapad Yoga 13 which died when I broke the charging jack. Lenovo stopped making drivers for it about 2 yrs ago, I can't even find it listed on Lenovo's very long Ideapad driver download list. I bought the BestBuy 7th gen, i7 business version which they list as model 80UV001BUS/14 but confusingly Lenovo lists as an Ideapad 510S 14". I have owned it one week. I stubbornly nursed my Yoga 13 through Windows 8.1 and 10 updates. Major Windows OS updates were very problematic for the Yoga 13 which is an early version of a 2 in 1, ( a laptop and tablet combination). Computer service techs privately advise against 2 in 1's because Windows OS updates don't seem to run properly without much tweeking and searching of community Q/A chats for patch fixes. This time I bought a straight 14" with no touchscreen or tablet features. First the pros: This is light weight, it is fast, with good on board speakers. The harmon speakers are much better than the Yoga 13 speakers. I like the back lit keyboard. It is running Windows 10 version 1607 with no problem. I could not get my Yoga 13 to run Windows 10 beyond version 1511. Also this has an ethernet RJ45 port that permits hardwire connection to my router for max speed and less risk of errors during long downloads. Now the cons: Yes this has the "shift" key where the "page up" key should be. I remapped the shift and page keys using a third party app called KeyTweak. I did not physically move the key covers as that would void the warranty. My Yoga 13's SD memory chip slot allowed for complete insertion of chip, but on this 510 the chip inserts only 1/3 and seems very vulnerable. I carry the Yoga 13 without worrying about damaging the SD card. Lenovo decided to make the 510 battery charger like my MacBook Pro, that is with the a/c plug prongs projecting directly from the black box converter. When plugged in, this arrangement blocks/hogs surrounding sockets on a duplex A/C wall receptacle or a plug strip. My work around for this is attaching a 12" power cord extension to the converter box that has the regular, small plug on one end. Apple provides a power cord extension for their converter but it is too long and heavy for easy use. Given the cons, I would say this a good 14" laptop in the i5 version and overpriced in the i7 version.
