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

 

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...

Lenovo's budget laptop falls apart at the seams

Sharp, colorful display ; Decent speakers

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

As a budget machine, the Lenovo Flex 2 15 offers some very big pluses where many others falter. Users won't find many other $700 transforming notebook options, let alone ones with a 1080p screen. The Acer Aspire R7 comes closest with it's head turning...

Good Overall

 

I originally was looking in the $500-$600 dollar range for a kick around laptop. Of course as I did more research my "nice to haves" list grew and I began to look for more features. I finally settled on this laptop and overall have not been...

Great screen including touch feature, overall good boot and file response, keyboard is good, cost (at the time around $750), battery life seems okay, AC adapter size is good

Bloatware, construction, ports, size. Does not look easy to modify. No dedicated video card

Average Laptop

 

Overall it has very cool features and decent performance but battery performance and hinge portion can be made better. I gave it a 3 star for the laptop.

1) Performance is good till now ; 2) Audio and display is excellent

1) Disappointed with the battery life it says it upto 6 hours but it dies down after 4 hours ; 2) I bought it specially because for the cool flex mechanism but the hinge of the laptop is making me worry since its weak and my right portion of hinge has...

Lenovo Flex 2 15 (59418262)

 

All-in-all, it's a great buy.

Surprisingly fast, it can keep up with a few of the games I play on pretty high settings ; Touch screen is super handy at times ; Stand" mode is handy when only wanting the touch screen aspect ; Lightweight build

Keyboard feels a bit cheep ; Touchpad mouse will occasionally just stop working.. I've noticed it happens a lot when unlocking the computer only using the touchscreen options ; Personal cons ; Mousepad buttons aren't separate. The mouse can still move...

Great laptop for the price

 

The protection plan with New Egg is cheaper than with Best Buy than getting a computer with New Egg is definitely a plus. However, Best Buy will replace your battery at any time with their plan and as far as I know (check with an employee) New Egg does...

The computer is fast and starts up quickly. Has a Full HD screen (1920X1080). It is thin and has a touchscreen. It also can have up to 7 hours of battery life (based on your settings) For a college student long battery life is a must have. The computer...

the dual mode - laptop to tablet and back- let me down. the screen does not fold back 360 degrees and so it is difficult to use it as a tablet at the angle it can fold down to (300 degrees). the angle of which you have to use the tablet function is...
