Reviews for the Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 15-59393845

83% Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 15 review
Source: PC Pro English
For a laptop that makes such a striking first impression, the IdeaPad Flex 15 doesn’t quite fulfil its potential. The design is lovely, and the combination of power and stamina is unusual for a budget model, but we can’t help wishing Lenovo could have found room for a better-quality display. Still, that’s a complaint we’d level at pretty much every budget laptop we’ve seen in recent years – ultimately, an improved display would only transform the Lenovo from good to great. At this price, the IdeaPad Flex 15 remains a budget laptop to be reckoned with.

2.2 kg: These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 13 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
