Now for some questions:

1)I checked in some compare websites and I saw that the Yoga 510 is LCD display while the Yoga 500 is WLED display, what's the difference between the two?
2)The RAM speed is different , how bad is 1600MHZ , there's major difference between 1600 & 2133 MHZ?
3)As I said before, I need this laptop more for my studying and i'm not going to play games much, do I really need a GPU? is the GPU has any effect on those programs I use? And just to know which one you think is better from those GPUs?

Please let me know what you think guys, really important for me! :)

Thanks!

What do you think of a ThinkPad? I am using ThinkPad series of laptops since late '90s. They are good. Just add a m-sata SSD, which I did recently, and it works like a charm.

The CPU is good, and it will be more than what you will need for studies and regular office-like work. For battery, check the manufacturer's website or see some unboxing video on youtube.
