Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 14 review

 

Though powerful and reasonably portable, the Flex is held back by mundane build quality and an awful display.

Lenovo’s Flex is a compromised laptop, but not because of the 300-degree hinge, which serves its purpose of making touch use more convenient. The problems are more traditional issues which have plagued budget laptops for years: display, touchpad,...

Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 14 review: A consumer-oriented convertible laptop

 

This thin-and-light comes with a feature few of its ilk offer: A removable battery.

Removable battery ; Solid benchmark performances ; Very good battery life

Limited storage ; Heavy for a thin-and-light ; No 5GHz Wi-Fi ; Only 100 mbps ethernet

The IdeaPad Flex 14 is a compelling option for consumers and small businesses that want a budget-priced, touch-capable Windows 8 notebook.

Review: Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 14

 

Lenovo has seen the future, and the future is hinges. Or so it thinks.

Overall good performance, and exceptional battery life. Sturdy chassis. Dragon Assistant comes preinstalled, so you can you navigate by voice (but not dictate memos). Solid audio

Half-baked hinge design. Rickety touchpad. Rotten viewing angles, a low resolution, and a dim LCD will have you rubbing your eyes

Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 14

 

The Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 14 doesn't quite go all the way for convertible laptop buyers.

Innovative hinge design. Eight hours battery life. 10-point touch screen. Comfortable keyboard. Removable battery.

Screen doesn't flip all the way around. Not a lot of free space on the C: drive. 1,366 by 768 resolution is low

The Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 14 has innovation, a responsive touch screen, and battery life on its side. However, for only 80 dollars more you can get the whiz-bang mid-priced EC Asus N550JV-DB72T, with its large 1080p screen, Core i7 performance with...

Lenovo's Flex 14 bends over backward to impress

 

Unlike the full hybrid IdeaPad Yoga, the less-expensive Flex 14's hinge only goes back about 300 degrees.

The ; is inexpensive for a fourth-gen Core i5 laptop, with a good keyboard and touch pad, and excellent battery life. The 300-degree hinge gives you a second kiosk mode, if you want.

Because the hinge doesn't go back a full 360 degrees, it's not as useful as tabletlike hybrids. The largely plastic body doesn't have that premium IdeaPad feel.

Lenovo tries something new with the semi-hybrid IdeaPad Flex 14. The fold-back hinge is of dubious practical use, as it doesn't fold all the way down into a tablet, but if you pick the right configuration, this is still a good, inexpensive Core i5...

Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 14 (2019) Review: Budget laptop with premium design

 

Lenovo is best known for its legendary business notebooks, but the company also offers a number of more casual devices for consumers with modest needs and budgets. One of the newest models among these more modest offerings is the Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 14...

Premium design despite low cost ; Crisp display and solid keyboard ; Fast-charging support and USB-C ; Flexibility of a Yoga laptop ; Fingerprint sensor and webcam shutter

It's a bit heavy for commuters ; Screen is a bit dim at 250 nits ; Doesn't use USB-C charger

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

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

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...

Review Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 14 Notebook

 

A flexible solution. The Flex 14 is essentially a low-cost alternative to the well-known Yoga series. Starting at just $479, it certainly has the looks and design of a notebook at twice the value. Looks aren't everything of course, and we find out in...

Brushed aluminum, rubberized matte surfaces and glossy plastic all in one!; Fast system performance (for the SSD model); Moderately easy to access internal components; Appealing design for the price; Overall good build quality; Available mSATA slot;...

Lenovo Flex 14 Review

 

Lenovo announced one of its newest notebooks just last month, the Lenovo Flex 14 and Flex 15, which is yet another portable computer in their stable of devices that is able to offer a not-so traditional experience. We've seen the […]

The Flex 14 has some nice specs, battery life and webcam, but considering its weight and how limited its use outside of being just an ultrabook is, we think Lenovo provided a good notebook with a less interesting secondary use. We think you’ll only get...
