YouTube playback may seem frustratingly laggy at first, but there is nothing to worry about. It’s an i7 2-in-1 convertible laptop.
I was about to give up reviewing the Lenovo Yoga 520 until I found out why this laptop cannot playback YouTube videos smoothly.
I checked the internet speed, raised the power plan to high performance and played the same video on my iPhone.
Then I noticed how it was hunting and switching between the two WiFi points at home.
After turning off the auto connection, everything is back to normal. YouTube videos played smoothly.
So, the testing of my Lenovo Yoga 520 continues.
