Has a Touch Sensitive Screen
Like most of the other 2 in 1 laptops that were released around the same time as the Flex 2, the Lenovo Flex 2 has a touch sensitive screen.
We compared all the other portable PCs which also have a touch sensitive screen to this laptop and we think the Flex 2 15, the Flex 2, or the FLEX 15 all from Lenovo is also worth considering.
2x SO-DIMM Memory Slot
The biggest memory slots of the Lenovo Flex 2 is 2x SO-DIMM. That's over two times the memory slots of the most frequently found memory slot of 1x SO-DIMM.

6 Reasons Against
Only One USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Port
The Lenovo Flex 2 is a one USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port portable PC.
Does Not Have a Full-Size Keyboard

HDD drives are slower than other forms of storage such as solid state drives (SSD) and flash drives.
An HDD storage medium is actually the worst storage medium across all notebook PCs that have been on the market for a similar time to the Flex 2.
The best storage medium across comparable types of portable PC is SSD.
The battery lifes of notebook PCs that have been available for more than two years range from 3.7h to 19h. With a battery life of only 6 hours, the Lenovo Flex 2 has one of the shorter battery lifes amongst 2 in 1 laptops of this age.
There are a number of other 6h battery life laptops currently available that you might also want to look at including the Lenovo Yoga 2 11 which is cheaper.
If you are looking for a longer battery life then you might also want to look at the Lenovo Miix 2 (7h and higher rated) or the Lenovo Yoga 2 (8h and cheaper).
