12 PCI Express Lanes (max)
Most notebook PCs of this spec and age have between 1 and 15 PCI Express lanes (max), including the Lenovo Flex which has 12 PCI Express lanes (max).
Fairly Big Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
With a maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of 2 gigabytes, the Lenovo Flex has a fairly big maximum on-board graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other 2 in 1 laptops that have been available for a comparable time to the Flex. Across all the 2 in 1 laptops that have been around for around the same time as the Flex the maximum on-board graphics adapter memories range from 1.7GB to 16GB, and the average maximum on-board graphics adapter memory is 2.2GB.
Has a Front Camera
The Lenovo Flex has a front camera, as do most of the other laptops of this spec and age.
Alternative portable PCs with a front camera currently available that you might want to consider include because of it's better review score, the Toshiba U920t.
1,600MHz Processor Memory Clock Speed
The Lenovo Flex supports a 1,600MHz processor memory clock speed which is faster than most portable PCs of this spec and age. Most 2 in 1 laptops that were released more than two years ago support a 133MHz processor memory clock speed. In addition, this portable PC supports 1 and 333MHz processor memory clock speeds.
A 1,600MHz processor memory clock speed is actually the best supported memory clock speeds supported by processor amongst all 2 in 1 laptops that have been around for around the same time as the Flex.
Amongst comparable types of notebook PC the worst supported memory clock speeds supported by processor is 133MHz.
