Lenovo launches four laptops in one day – the bendable Lenovo Yoga 300 and Yoga 500, the Z51 workstation, and the budget-friendly ideapad 100






Lenovo has two new additions to their 180-degree flipback Yoga line – the Lenovo Yoga 300 (11.6-inch) and the Yoga 500 (14 and 15-inch variants). Both take after the self-contained look of the Yoga 3 Pro, but in a more cost-conscious package. Meanwhile, the 15-inch Z51 is a multimedia and gaming workstation, and the ideapad 100 (14 and 15-inch variants) is a student-budget-friendly (starts at P14,995.00) but capable entry level notebook.
