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...

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...

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

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 laptop except for the bad touchpad

 

For the most part, this is a good laptop for the price. The touchscreen seems to be a waste since the laptop does not fold into a tablet. My biggest complaint is the touchpad. They combined the pad with the buttons, which makes the pad and buttons...

HD screen ; Backlit keyboard and no driver is required for the keyboard light

Bad touchpad as mentioned below ; Function keys are reversed. To get F1, I need to press Fn+F1. By default, F1 mutes the speakers. I had to go into the bios to switch back the function keys ; A little heavy. I had a Vaio with similar features. This...

Love it

 

I turned off all automatic updates from the Microsoft stores. Once an update is issued, unless it is required to use the program, I wait for a week or so to see the reviews, then I determine if I want to install it.

Touchscreen, plenty of memory, quick boot up and faster awakening and an optical drive to boot. I bought this computer as I went back to school and it has been great. I've used the presentation mode more than once while collaborating with classmates ;...

Comes preloaded with Lenovo and Microsoft bloatware, but what computer doesn't anymore? Just shutdown the programs that you don't use and uninstall if you haven't had any issues ; Sometimes "apps" from the Microsoft store won't load or are glitchy, but...
