Yoga 530 budget laptop a good purchase for home working?

Hi all

i am looking at getting a laptop for my 13 year old son which will be mostly used for school work (Microsoft office ) and browsing internet and no doubt he will also use it for you tube. So don’t need anything too powerful .

i have been looking at the yoga 530 14”  Intel® Pentium™ 4415U (Dual Core, 2.3 GHz). I have never had a 2 in 1 laptop or a laptop one with a SSD drive. 

However after looking around the idea of having a tablet / laptop combination with a quick start up looks appealing. 

Would this model be a good choice for a 13 year old for someone that will be just running office and you tubing. 

Also I have read something about the active pen 2. Is this worth getting and will it work with the yoga 530 

 

Thanks in advance

Hi winks,

 

Welcome to the Lenovo Community Forums!

 

Yoga 530 is a great choice. You can read more details here https://www.lenovo.com/gb/en/laptops/yoga/500-series/Yoga-530-14-Intel/p/88YG5000978?ac=sgsph_ME&Cid....

 

The Active Pen will make editing, sketching and writing easier.

 

You can also check for other models here https://www.lenovo.com/gb/en/laptops/c/LAPTOPS#type=TYPE_ATTR2 and filter your searches by uses, types or specs.

 

Hope this helps.

This is the compatibility matrix.  Search for Pen.
