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...

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...

Lenovo Flex is good buy

 

A good overall device. I would recommend this laptop if you don't mind the above deficits.

This product has been a quality device for performing most office and entertainment functions. The 15.6 " screen is bright and the resolution more than adequate. I love the backlit keyboard and the touchscreen is as sensitive as you would need for...

Despite my overall approval of this laptop there are several areas that could use improvement. Number one, the touchpad is not as sensitive as one would like to control normal functions. When using the left click button, you must press close to the...
