9 Reasons For

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This notebook PC supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on 2 in 1 laptops that are a comparable age to it.

Chart Edit

Good Brand

We calculated the average reviews for all Lenovo notebook PCs and also specifically for Lenovo 2 in 1 laptops and found that in both cases Lenovo had good reviews.

Quite Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Burst Frequency

Across all the 2 in 1 laptops that have been available for around the same time as the Flex 3 the on-board graphics adapter burst frequencies range from 600MHz to 900MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter burst frequency is 740MHz. At 792 megahertz, the Lenovo Flex 3 has a fairly fast on-board graphics adapter burst frequency compared to most of the other 2 in 1 laptops that were released one year ago.

Chart Edit

Has a Touch Sensitive Screen

Like most of the other 2 in 1 laptops that came out more than a year ago, the Lenovo Flex 3 has a touch sensitive screen.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative portable PCs with a touch sensitive screen currently available including because of it's better review score, the HP Spectre x360.

Light

With a weight of only 1.4 kilograms, the Lenovo Flex 3 is quite light compared to most of the other 2 in 1 laptops that were launched around the same time as the Flex 3. The average weight of 2 in 1 laptops that are a similar age to the Flex 3 is 1.6kg, and the weights range from 290g to 2.8kg.

There are a number of alternative 1.4kg heavy notebook PCs currently available that you might also want to look at including because of it's better review score, the HP EliteBook Revolve 810 (£2,005.53).

20 Reasons Against

Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency

The on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of the Lenovo Flex 3 of only 792 megahertz is one of the slowest amongst 2 in 1 laptops that are a comparable age to the Flex 3. The average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of portable PCs of a similar age and type to the Flex 3 is 920MHz.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow Maximum Processor Memory Bandwidth

Across all the portable PCs of this spec and age the maximum processor memory bandwidths range from 6.4GB/s to 26GB/s, and the average maximum processor memory bandwidth is 24GB/s. At only 21.32 gigabytes per second, the Lenovo Flex 3 has a fairly slow maximum processor memory bandwidth compared to most of the other 2 in 1 laptops that were released one year ago.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Maximum Internal Memory Supported by Processor

With a maximum internal memory supported by processor of only 8 gigabytes, the Lenovo Flex 3 has one of the smaller maximum internal memory supported by processors amongst 2 in 1 laptops of this age. Across all the similar spec portable PCs that were launched around the same time as the Flex 3 the maximum internal memory supported by processors range from 2GB to 32GB.

Chart Edit

Only Two Displays Supported by On-Board Grap

Most similar spec portable PCs that have been available for more than a year use two displays supported by on-board grap, including the Lenovo Flex 3 which uses two displays supported by on-board grap.

Chart Edit

Only Four PCI Express Lanes (max)

The Lenovo Flex 3 is a four PCI Express lane (max) laptop. Most of the other laptops that have been around for around the same time as the Flex 3 have between 1 and 15 PCI Express lanes (max).

Chart Edit

Only One USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Port

Most laptops of this age and spec have between one and two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports, including the Lenovo Flex 3 which has one USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port.

Chart Edit

Only Two SATA Connectors

The Lenovo Flex 3 is a two SATA connector notebook PC. Most of the other comparable spec portable PCs that have been on the market for more than a year have between two and three SATA connectors.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Full-Size Keyboard

Most 2 in 1 laptops that have been available for around the same time as the Flex 3 do not have a full-size keyboard. The Lenovo Flex 3 is no exception to this as it too does not have a full-size keyboard.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Screen Size

Notebook PCs of a comparable type and age to the Flex 3 have screen sizes of between 8.9" and 16", and the average screen size is 13". The Lenovo Flex 3 has one of the smaller screen sizes (only 11.6 inches) amongst laptops of this age.

If you would prefer a portable PC with a bigger screen size then you might want to consider the Lenovo Yoga 12 (£1,303.57) (12.5"), or the HP Pro X2 612 G1 (£341.00) (12.5").

Read more Less Chart Edit

Very Short Battery Life

The Lenovo Flex 3 has one of the shorter battery lifes (only 5 hours) amongst 2 in 1 laptops of this age. The shortest battery life of 2 in 1 laptops that were released more than a year ago is 2.2h and the longest is 18h.

It may also be worth considering one of the other 5h battery life notebook PCs currently available including the Asus R554LA which has better reviews.

If you would prefer a longer battery life then you might want to consider the Lenovo Yoga 2 (6h) which is also higher rated.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Only HDD Storage Medium

The Lenovo Flex 3 has a better storage medium than most notebook PCs of this age and type. This notebook PC has an HDD storage medium, whereas most 2 in 1 laptops that were released one year ago 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.

An HDD storage medium is actually the worst storage medium amongst all 2 in 1 laptops that were launched more than a year ago.

Amongst similar types of portable PC the best storage medium is SSD.

We compared this notebook PC to all the other laptops that have an HDD storage media and we think the Lenovo Flex 15 which has better reviews is also worth considering.
