Lenovo Flex 14 Review: Perfect Mid Range Ultrabook
Lenovo Ideapad Flex 10 Summary Review

5 Reasons For

Lenovo Has Good Reviews for Its Laptops

Lenovo is one of the better rated laptop manufacturers according to average reviews from owners and experts, and Lenovo also has good reviews for its 2 in 1 laptops.

Has a Front Camera

The Lenovo Flex has a front camera, as do most of the other laptops of a comparable spec and age to the Flex.

We compared all the other laptops with a front camera to this portable PC and we think because of it's better review score, the Toshiba U920t[plb_1453648_price], and the Lenovo Yoga[plb_2504228_price] is also worth considering.

Very Big Screen Size

The average screen size of similar spec portable PCs that have been available for a comparable time to the Flex is 13", and the screen sizes range from 10" to 16". With a screen size of 15.6 inches, the Lenovo Flex has a very big screen size compared to most of the other notebook PCs of this type and age.

Chart Edit

802.11n WiFi Standard

This laptop has an 802.11b|802.11g|802.11n WiFi standard, which is typical of many laptops of a comparable type and age to it.

Chart Edit

Has a Touch Sensitive Screen

The Lenovo Flex has a touch sensitive screen, as do most of the other portable PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as the Flex.

Chart Edit

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Full-Size Keyboard

The Lenovo Flex does not have a full-size keyboard. Most of the other notebook PCs of this type and age also do not have a full-size keyboard.

Alternative laptops which also have a full-size keyboard that you might also want to look at include the Toshiba U920t[plb_1453648_price] which also has a higher rating.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Only HDD Storage Medium

The Lenovo Flex has an HDD storage medium which is better than the SSD storage medium found on most 2 in 1 laptops that have been available for a similar time to it. 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 in fact the worst storage medium amongst all notebook PCs of a comparable age and type to the Flex.

Amongst similar types of laptop the best storage medium is SSD.

If the storage medium of this 2 in 1 laptop is too bad for you then you might want to look at the Lenovo Yoga[plb_2430247_price] (SSD), or the HP Pavilion x360[plb_2404650_price] (SSD).

Read more Less Chart Edit

Quite Slow Processor Clock Speed

The slowest processor clock speed of notebook PCs of this spec and age is 0.8GHz and the fastest is 2.7GHz. With a processor clock speed of only 1.5 gigahertz, the Lenovo Flex has a fairly slow processor clock speed compared to most of the other 2 in 1 laptops that have been available for around the same time as the Flex.

If this Lenovo portable PC processor clock speed is not fast enough for you then you might want to look at the Lenovo Flex 10[plb_2862598_price] (1.58GHz).

Read more Less Chart Edit

Heavy

With a weight of 2.3 kilograms, the Lenovo Flex is quite heavy compared to most of the other laptops of this spec and age. Across all the portable PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as the Flex the weights range from 0.88g to 20kg, and the average weight is 1.7kg.

If you would consider a portable PC with a heavier weight then you might want to look at the Lenovo Flex 2[plb_2526880_price] (2.3kg).

Read more Less Chart Edit

Quite Small Processor Cache

2 in 1 laptops that have been on the market for a comparable time to the Flex have processor caches of between 0.51MB and 4MB. The Lenovo Flex has one of the smaller processor caches (only 2 megabytes) amongst comparable spec notebook PCs of this age.
