Reviews for the Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 10

73% Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 10 Notebook Review | Notebookcheck
Netbook revisited The Lenovo Ideapad Flex 10 is a small, light, low-cost mini-notebook using the latest Baytrail-M entry-level PC platform. A touchscreen is included, USB3.0 too. Can the Flex 10 convince us that this new take on the netbook is going to be successful?
60% Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 10 Review: Neither Here nor There

The Lenovo Flex 10 might be an entry-level device, but it isn't cheap. For the same amount of money, you could get a far more powerful notebook, although you would have to give up the touchscreen and swivel feature. Given a choice between performance and looks, we'd choose performance every time. As it stands, the Lenovo Flex 10 is a fascinating product but not one we can see a strong target market for. It seems like just another Lenovo form-factor experiment. Pick it up if you love the looks and don't think a tablet would suit your needs, but avoid it if you rely on a PC at school, work or home.

Platform used by IdeaPad Flex 10 is not new, but it is working well: Intel Baytrail-M platform with a 1.46GHz Celeron Dual-Core N2805, 2GB of RAM, integrated Intel HF graphics and a 500GB SATA hard drive will provide good performance. However, it would definitely be a good idea if there were a SSD disk, even a small one, in order to speed up booting time of the system and applications. However, we expected a better autonomy because autonomy of 4hrs for a device of this category is not impressive at all. If the usage of computer does not include playing demanding games, but office work and multimedia, this is a good deal, especially since the operating system is already installed.
Positive: Good performance; great autonomy; passive cooling system. Negative: Low resolution screen.
