Lenovo IdeaCentre Flex 20

 

The Lenovo IdeaCentre Flex 20 is a good all-in-one desktop for general users, but a few nits keep it from being the tops in class.

Compact portable all-in-one desktop. Good life on battery. Large screen for a portable. Comfy external keyboard

No HDMI in/Out. No SD card slot. No dual-band Wi-Fi. Screen resolution less than full HD 1080p. Only two USB 3.0 ports. A lot of pre-installed apps

The Lenovo IdeaCentre Flex 20 is a 19.5-inch portable all-in-one desktop that marries ultrabook-class components with a large touch screen. It's got a battery inside, but it's meant mainly for people that use laptops in the house or in a small office...

Lenovo Flex 20 review: This tabletop all-in-one makes too many compromises

 

Giant tablets such as this one promise to revolutionize family game night, but the Flex 20 isn't up to the task.

Solid build quality ; Light weight for an all-in-one with a 19.5-inch display ; Reasonable price tag

Low-resolution display ; A lowly Core i3 is your only CPU choice ; Not enough I/O ports

The Lenovo Flex 20 makes a lot of compromises to achieve its light weight and low price. Most people would be better off saving a little more cash to buy a machine they won’t outgrow so quickly.

Lenovo's Flex 20 is a tabletop PC for less

 

It costs less than some other tabletop PCs, but the Lenovo Flex 20 can still be a very good family-style household computer if you don't mind the lower-end specs.

The Lenovo Flex 20 offers a big, battery-powered screen for less than the competition, plus a very handy custom software interface for tabletop mode

The screen resolution is low, the CPU underpowered, and the battery not very long-lasting

Lenovo IdeaCentre Flex 20 Review

 

Lenovo's IdeaCentre Flex 20 portable all-in-one offers a robust suite of family-friendly entertainment for an affordable price.

Attractive design; Engaging and intuitive Aura interface; Full suite of family-centric apps and games; Fun optional accessories

Display not full HD; Short battery life; No memory card slot

Lenovo IdeaCentre Flex 20 review

 

Affordable price, Display offers excellent image quality, Pleasing bundled peripherals, Runs cool and quiet

Below-average performance, Short battery life, Not enough connectivity

Lenovo’s Flex 20 is not the best implementation of a portable all-in-one design we’ve yet seen, but it is the only one we’ve tested with a price tag that makes sense. Dell’s XPS 18 and HP’s Envy Rove, both of which start at almost $1,000, are too...

Lenovo Flex 20 All-in-One Review: Small Enough for Train Rides, Big Enough for Desks

 

We love Lenovo for making table PCs a thing! The new Lenovo Flex 20 IdeaCenter is a desktop computer, a tablet, and a table PC all in one. The 19.5” display is a standalone computer with full 10-point multi-touch, integrated battery, and table-top...

Multi-purpose, Price is right, Retractable Stand, Tiltable, Runs Windows 8 64 bit, USB 3.0, Built-in battery, Built-in webcam and speakers, Includes mouse/keyboard/accessories

Using the included wireless mouse leaves just one free USB, Battery could be longer, Lackluster Specs—no upgrades available, No handle or carrying case, No ethernet

Attractive design, Approachable price, Aura interface shows promise of "table PC" concept

Display comes up short of full HD, Paltry port selection, Poky performance

That said, we recommend the Flex 20 for the table PC curious because it allocates its funds wisely: It doesn't cut corners that detract from its design or utility, or look or feel like a cheap machine. Instead of sacrificing its sleek design and...

Lenovo IdeaCentre Flex 20

 

The IdeaCentre Flex 20 is another innovative desktop PC/tablet hybrid from Lenovo. It looks just like a standard all-in-one desktop PC, but fold up the stand and unplug the power cord, and you've got a 20-inch tablet.

Sleek design with foldable stand, Accurate & responsive touch screen, Touch-friendly games, apps and Aura interface, Built-in battery

Display isn't 1080p HD, Performance is only average, One USB port is taken by mouse/keyboard wireless adapter

Lenovo Ideapad Flex 20 review

 

Lenovo's latest all-in-one is compact and potentially quite powerful but we were surprised by its low-resolution screen

Consumer review by:

Idea Center a Plus

 

I can a definite advantage to go from an AIO type arrangement to one that is somewhat portable. It does very well as a stand alone in a small footprint.

Great resolution but not retina level but exceptionally usable Good wireless mouse and solid feel keyboard. Display size just right for closer-in viewing

Somewhat awkward in a portable mode. There is no hand grip. The base kickstand is not suitable for a carry grip. Slightly heavy to be carrying from room to room
