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

 

It's hard to make a desktop-replacement laptop standout in a market dominated by gaming rigs, Ultrabooks, and 2-in-1s. But that hasn't stopped the Lenovo Flex 2 15. Its 300-degree hinge stands out, but does this machine have more to offer?

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 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 14 review: A good multi-mode laptop - The Times of India

 

We try to find out if Lenovo Flex 2 14 is a good mid-range laptop..

At a price of Rs 41,990, the Lenovo Flex 2 14 is a good all-rounder. Even if you don't use the multi-mode feature, the laptop offers a good feature set, decent performance, comfortable keyboard and smooth trackpad, and a variety of preloaded apps at a...

Lenovo Ideapad Flex 2 59-420166 Review

 

The Flex 2 may lack the Yoga's hinge and the gorgeous display, but it more than makes up for that with its excellent performance and value, enough to earn this device a Best Buy from our test labs. But that's not all it takes. Read on to find out.

Dedicated GPU ; Comfortable keyboard ; Temperatures in check

Sub-par screen ; Low battery life

Best pick at the time of purchase

 

I plan to reset the laptop as a final troubleshoot after classes end. If it fixes the problem i will correct this review.

I love everything about it so far besides one important issue. I bought this laptop for 800$ (it was on sale). I love newegg and i like lenovo. Almost a year ago I did my research and chose this laptop and i do not regret it.

I am a student. For me this means flash websites for things like connectmath.com a online resource for my instructor to give us math problems. I also use skype alot. I own 2 PC's and only on the laptop i can't use connectmath and skype crashes a ton. i...
