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.

10.1": The netbook/subnotebook has a quite small display format. Nonetheless, it is a common format for netbooks. The advantage is, that the subnotebook/netbook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display has the advantage, that it needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes. It is difficult to use high resolutions. » To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.2 kg: This subnotebook is one of the most lightweight of all notebooks and can be carried very easily. There exist hardly any models in this extreme class of weight. 7-9 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
