Review Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 14 Notebook

 

A flexible solution. The Flex 14 is essentially a low-cost alternative to the well-known Yoga series. Starting at just $479, it certainly has the looks and design of a notebook at twice the value. Looks aren't everything of course, and we find out in...

Brushed aluminum, rubberized matte surfaces and glossy plastic all in one!; Fast system performance (for the SSD model); Moderately easy to access internal components; Appealing design for the price; Overall good build quality; Available mSATA slot;...

CPU Turbo Boost is disabled if running on batteries; Brightness not suitable for outdoor use; Attracts fingerprints and grease easily; CPU suffers slightly from throttling; Keyboard keys feel very light; No higher resolution options; Lid quality could...

Great design and feel for a 14-inch notebook starting at just $479.

Lenovo Flex 14 Review

 

Lenovo announced one of its newest notebooks just last month, the Lenovo Flex 14 and Flex 15, which is yet another portable computer in their stable of devices that is able to offer a not-so traditional experience. We've seen the […]

The Flex 14 has some nice specs, battery life and webcam, but considering its weight and how limited its use outside of being just an ultrabook is, we think Lenovo provided a good notebook with a less interesting secondary use. We think you’ll only get...

Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 14 review: A consumer-oriented convertible laptop

 

This thin-and-light comes with a feature few of its ilk offer: A removable battery.

Removable battery ; Solid benchmark performances ; Very good battery life

Limited storage ; Heavy for a thin-and-light ; No 5GHz Wi-Fi ; Only 100 mbps ethernet

The IdeaPad Flex 14 is a compelling option for consumers and small businesses that want a budget-priced, touch-capable Windows 8 notebook.

It Flexes, But Only So Far

 

Lenovo has seen the future, and the future is hinges. Or so it thinks.

Overall good performance, and exceptional battery life. Sturdy chassis. Dragon Assistant comes preinstalled, so you can you navigate by voice (but not dictate memos). Solid audio

Half-baked hinge design. Rickety touchpad. Rotten viewing angles, a low resolution, and a dim LCD will have you rubbing your eyes

Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 14 Review

 

The Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 14 offers a small portion of the utility afforded on the Yoga at a more affordable price.

Strong Performance ; Long Battery Life ; Responsive SSD

Expensive ; Poor Display Quality

The Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 14 finds itself awkwardly in the middle: it fails to match the utility offered by the Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga and other convertible notebooks, but it’s also more expensive than most competing standard notebooks.

Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 14 review

 

The proliferation of touchscreens has spurred all manners of new design, some of which haven't made much sense. Sliders, for example, never earned much praise in our reviews due to their severely compromised keyboards and cramped (or non-existent)...

300-degree hinge make touch use convenient ; Solid performance ; Decent battery life ; Affordable

Uninspiring build quality ; Annoying touchpad ; Low-contrast display

Though powerful and reasonably portable, the Flex is held back by mundane build quality and an awful display.

Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 14 Review

 

The Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 14 offers some of the Yoga's flexibility and long battery life, but you're better off with a cheaper configuration.

Strong performance ; Above-average battery life; Fast SSD; Good audio quality

Low-resolution display for price; Thick backside; Limited usage modes compared with Yoga

The Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 14 offers some of the Yoga's flexibility and long battery life, but you're better off with a cheaper configuration.

Lenovo Flex 14 ( 1.80GHz 1600MHz 4MB)

 

Lenovo's IdeaPad Yoga series is one of the best laptop lines of the past couple of years, and one of the few real standouts of the still-young Windows 8 era. But Yoga systems, with flexible hinges that fold all the way back into a tablet mode, are...

The Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 14 is inexpensive for a fourth-gen Core i5 laptop, with a good keyboard and touch pad, and excellent battery life. The 300-degree hinge gives you a second kiosk mode, if you want.

Because the hinge doesn't go back a full 360 degrees, it's not as useful as tabletlike hybrids. The largely plastic body doesn't have that premium IdeaPad feel.

Lenovo tries something new with the semi-hybrid IdeaPad Flex 14. The fold-back hinge is of dubious practical use, as it doesn't fold all the way down into a tablet, but if you pick the right configuration, this is still a good, inexpensive Core i5...

Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 14 Convertible Ultrabook Review: An Affordable Convertible

 

Contortionist PCs are a big deal these days as convertible models take the stage to help bridge the gap between notebook and tablet. But not everyone wants to drop a grand on a convertible, and not everyone wants a 12-inch notebook, either. Meanwhile,...
