Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 2 15 Notebook Review

 

Flexibility on a budget. Lenovo's expansive Flex lineup continues with the updated 15.6-inch model in time for the back-to-school season. We check out both the chassis and performance to see if this inexpensive touchscreen notebook is an improvement...

1080p IPS touchscreen option, USB 3.0 and optical drive, Backlit AccuType keyboard, Brushed aluminum palm rests and glass edge-to-edge display, Removable panel underneath, No throttling issues, Quiet when idle, 1080p IPS option for very wide viewing...

1080p IPS option is expensive, Weak backlight for outdoor use, Average build quality, Keyboard and touchpad have poor travel and feedback, Li-ion battery can no longer be quickly swapped, Slow hybrid drive, No VGA-out, Removable battery and improved...

Lenovo Flex 2 Review

 

The Lenovo Flex 2 15 is a moderately priced desktop replacement that offers great value to those with average computing needs.

Great value, considering price and processing power ; Large and comfortable keyboard ; Responsive trackpad

Display lid flimsy ; Stand mode just about useless ; Glossy display

A desktop replacement really only has to get two things right: power and price.

The Lenovo Flex 2's touchscreen with a 300-degree hinge is a nice feature for the price. While it delivers decent benchmark results, however, its keyboard, display, and battery life disappoint.

Good price-to-performance ratio for its display size ; DVD burner ; Operates in stand and laptop modes

Disappointing battery life ; Dim display ; Limited to 2.4GHz Wi-Fi

The Lenovo Flex 2's perks include a roomy touchscreen on a 300-degree hinge, plus a DVD burner and a hybrid hard drive, all for a reasonable price. The trade-offs: poor battery life, a dim display, and no

Lenovo Flex 2 (15-Inch)

 

Lenovo'a Flex 2 is a reasonably priced, capable 15-inch desktop-replacement laptop with a unique 300-degree folding display.

1080p 10-point touch screen can fold back up to 300 degrees. Strong volume from speakers. Comfortable keyboard with numeric keypad

Heavy. Short battery life

The Lenovo Flex 2 (15-inch) ($679.99, as tested) is a desktop-replacement laptop in every sense of the word. It is large, with a 15.6-inch touch screen, and offers plenty of connectivity and entertainment features, including a DVD drive. Due to its...

Lenovo Flex 2 15 Review

 

The Lenovo Flex 2 offers solid performance and a full-HD touch display that flips into stand mode for a budget price.

Solid performance; Snappy, responsive keyboard; Crisp full-HD display; Useful app selection

No tablet mode; Below-average battery life; Muddy audio playback

The Lenovo Flex 2 offers solid performance and a full-HD touch display that flips into stand mode for a budget price.

Lenovo Flex 2 15 review

 

Lenovo's Flex 2 15 is a fundamentally solid notebook with a 1080p touchscreen.

Enjoyable keyboard ; 1080p at a low price ; Solid processor and storage performance ; More portable than most affordable 15-inchers ; Good value

Bland aesthetics ; Finicky touchpad ; Lackluster connectivity

No one should buy the Lenovo Flex 2 15 because of its trick hinge. Yes, getting the keyboard out of the touchscreen’s way can be useful, but it’s a minor convenience we think many owners will try once and promptly forget about. Windows 8.1 isn’t a...

The Best Budget Laptop

 

If you need an affordable laptop to use as your everyday computer, we like the IdeaPad Flex 2 14. It's powerful and portable enough to satisfy with a battery that should last you all day. The hinge also bends around 300 degrees so you can use it in a...

There’s no such thing as a great budget laptop, but we think that the Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 2 14 is pretty good in all the right area, which is as close to great as you can get in this price range. If you want one computer for all your computing needs,...

Attractive price, Laptop and stand modes expand its usefulness, Full 1080p touch screen, An optical drive

Bulky and hefty, Merely OK battery life, Stand mode leaves keys exposed on the underside, Low-res Webcam

The biggest plus, of course, is the flexibility to flip the system into stand mode when the mood strikes you. Indeed, we think stand mode is more useful than Lenovo's Yoga machines' full-monty tablet mode: Unlike a detachable, a convertible still...

Lenovo Flex 2 15 review

 

Lenovo's budget laptop falls apart at the seams

Sharp, colorful display ; Decent speakers

Cheaper design ; Squishy inputs ; Excessive screen glare ; Heavy on bloatware

A squishy keyboard and trackpad mar the Lenovo Flex 2 15, an otherwise great looking 15.6-inch laptop with a gorgeous 1080p screen.

Lenovo Ideapad Flex 2 59-420166

 

Some call the Flex the poor man's Yoga, but is it really? Let's find out.

Dedicated GPU ; Comfortable keyboard ; Temperatures in check

Sub-par screen ; Low battery life

Some might call this the poor man’s Yoga, and we’re inclined to agree. You lose out on that gorgeous screen and the 360°, but in the bargain you do shave off Rs.10,000 and get a much appreciated performance boost.
