Has a Front Camera

The Flex 14 has a front camera, as do most of the other 2 in 1 laptops that came out more than two years ago.

We compared this laptop to all the other laptops with a front camera and we think because of it's better review score, the Lenovo Yoga is also worth considering.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative laptops that have an HDD storage media currently available including because of it's better review score, the Lenovo Yoga.

If the storage medium of this notebook PC is not good enough for you then you might want to look at the Satellite U920t (SSD and cheaper), or the U920t (SSD and cheaper) both from Toshiba.
