What is the difference between the Lenovo Yoga 530 and IdeaPad C340?

Hello,

 

Im about to buy a Lenovo laptop. I'm stuck on 2 models which I can not seem to understand what is the diference between them.

They look similar and have the same specs and price.

 

Can you help me figure out what are the differences between Lenovo Yoga 530 and IdeaPad C340 laptops?

 

 Thanks,

MichaelMA

Hi MichaelMA,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

We can accurately detail comparison for both models if you can share specific machine type model number/ part number (example 81EK00LWIN). 

 

In general you can review the general features and specification of the Yoga 530 and C340. Take note that fingerprint scanners and active pen can be optional on both so depends on the machine type model of the variant of choice.

 

For a quick comparison from independent reviews here and here may show difference in port availability from the main design and graphic component.

 

I hope this helps answer your query.

Update us soon as convenient.

 

Regards

Thank you for your reply.
Is it true that the C340 is the Yoga replacement and is newer than the Yoga?
Comparison models:
81EK007XIV vs 81N400AEIV.

Thanks,

Thanks,
So if I understand correctly, the C340 is better, faster and has more updated components.

Am I correct?

Hi MichaelMA,

 

Greetings.

 

Comparing both MTM and basic features aside from the fact that it is a newer model, C340 is better.

 

You can review the links provided above and the information I have provided to help you decide which is best for your needs.

Re: What is the difference between the Lenovo Yoga 530 and IdeaPad C340?

I'm in the same position. I see there is a difference in weight - the yoga (aluminium) 530 weighs 1.6 kilos and the ideapad 1.9. Is the ideapad made of stronger material? 

And we're back...
