The on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies of portable PCs that have been available for around the same time as the Flex 10 range from 560MHz to 1,300MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency is 1,000MHz. The Lenovo Flex 10 has one of the slowest on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies (only 667 megahertz) amongst 2 in 1 laptops of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Small Maximum Internal Memory Supported by Processor

Across all the similar spec notebook PCs that were launched more than two years ago the maximum internal memory supported by processors range from 2GB to 32GB. With a maximum internal memory supported by processor of only 4 gigabytes, the Lenovo Flex 10 has one of the smaller maximum internal memory supported by processors amongst similar spec laptops of this age.

Chart Edit

Only Two Displays Supported by On-Board Grap

The Flex 10 is a laptop that uses two displays supported by on-board grap. Most of the other notebook PCs of this age and spec use two displays supported by on-board grap.

Chart Edit

Very Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Burst Frequency

Across all the 2 in 1 laptops that have been around for around the same time as the Flex 10 the on-board graphics adapter burst frequencies range from 640MHz to 900MHz. With an on-board graphics adapter burst frequency of only 667 megahertz, the Flex 10 has one of the slower on-board graphics adapter burst frequencies amongst 2 in 1 laptops of this age.

Chart Edit

Recent Price Increase of £125.83

The price of the Flex 10 has increased by £125.83 in the last 52 days.

Quite Small Screen Size

With a screen size of only 10.1 inches, the Flex 10 has one of the smaller screen sizes amongst similar spec portable PCs of this age. The screen sizes of similar spec notebook PCs that were launched around the same time as the Flex 10 range from 10" to 16".

Portable PCs with a bigger screen size that might be worth considering include the Lenovo Yoga 2 11 (11.6") which is also cheaper.

Does Not Have a Full-Size Keyboard

The Lenovo Flex 10 does not have a full-size keyboard, although keep in mind that most of the other laptops of this age and spec also do not have a full-size keyboard.

We think you might also be interested in alternative laptops which also have a full-size keyboard including the Lenovo Flex 15.

Very Small Internal Memory

The internal memory of 2 in 1 laptops that have been available for more than two years range from 1GB to 16GB, and the average internal memory is 5GB. The Lenovo Flex 10 has a quite small internal memory (only 2 gigabytes) compared to most of the other portable PCs of a comparable type and age to the Flex 10.

If you want a laptop with a bigger internal memory then you might want to look at the Helix (4GB), or the Yoga 2 11 (4GB) both from Lenovo or the HP Pavilion x360 11-n011dx (4GB).

Quite Short Battery Life

The battery lifes of laptops of this type and age range from 3.7h to 19h, and the average battery life is 7.7h. When compared to other notebook PCs of this spec and age that we have checked, the battery life of the Flex 10 of only 4 hours is one of the shortest.

We compared this portable PC to all the other 4h battery life portable PCs and we think the Toshiba Satellite U920t (£679.54) which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If this 2 in 1 laptop battery life is not long enough for you then you might also want to look at the Flex (4.5h), or the Flex 2 (6h) both from Lenovo which is also cheaper.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Only HDD Storage Medium

The Flex 10 has an HDD storage medium which is better than most notebook PCs of this age and type. Most notebook PCs of a comparable spec and age to it have an SSD storage medium. HDD is a traditional storage drive which stores the information on magnetic disks. HDD drives are slower than other forms of storage such as solid state drives (SSD) and flash drives.

This notebook PC's storage medium (HDD) is actually the worst storage medium across all notebook PCs that have been available for a comparable time to the Flex 10.

An SSD storage medium is the best storage medium across similar types of notebook PC.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative laptops that have an HDD storage media currently available including the FLEX 15, or the Yoga (£643.24) both from Lenovo which is cheaper.

If you are looking for a laptop with a better storage medium then you might also want to look at the Toshiba Satellite U920t (£679.54) (SSD and cheaper), or the Fujitsu Stylistic Q702 (£543.00) (SSD and cheaper).

With a processor clock speed of only 1.46 gigahertz, the Flex 10 has a fairly slow processor clock speed compared to most of the other comparable spec portable PCs that have been around for around the same time as the Flex 10.

If this notebook PC processor clock speed is not fast enough for you then you might want to look at the HP Pro x2 612 (1.5GHz and cheaper).

Average Total Storage Capacity

With a total storage capacity of 500 gigabytes, the Flex 10 has a pretty average total storage capacity compared to most of the other similar spec notebook PCs that have been available for a comparable time to the Flex 10.

There are a number of alternative 500GB total storage capacity notebook PCs currently available that you might want to consider including cheaper notebook PCs such as the FLEX 15, or the Yoga both from Lenovo.
