Lenovo ideapad Miix 520 vs Miix 510 – what are the differences?

Recently, we acquainted you with the key features of the new Lenovo ideapad Miix 520 and we thought you would be intrigued to find out the main differences between this bad boy and its predecessor – the Lenovo ideapad Miix 510.

Starting off with hardware options, the former can be configured with up to 8th generation Intel Core processors, while the latter sports only up to a 7th generation one. In terms of graphics performance, both notebooks offer Intel HD Graphics 520 and Intel HD Graphics 620, however Miix 520 has an additional option – Intel UHD Graphics 620. As you can expect, the Miix 520 comes with larger memory capacity – up to 16GB of DDR4-2400 RAM vs 8GB DDR4-2133.

In terms of display, both laptops come with a 12.2-inch FHD IPS display so there is no difference here. The overall dimensions are also the same – thickness of 15.9 mm (tablet + keyboard) and starting weight of 1.2 kg. A difference we would like to point out is the 5MP rear camera in Miix 520 vs 2MP in its predecessor which means you can capture better selfies with the former.

The connectivity options are identical except for the USB 3.1 Type-C in Miix 520 as opposed to USB 3.0 Type C in Miix 510. The former also comes in configurations that sport a fingerprint reader, as well as NanoSIM slot and microSD reader.
