76% Review Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 14 Notebook | Notebookcheck
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 this review just how well the Flex 14 can perform.
Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 14 Convertible Ultrabook Review: An Affordable Convertible
Source: PC Perspective English
Between the Yoga line, the ThinkPad Twist, and the ThinkPad Helix, Lenovo’s been targeting all quadrants of the convertible spectrum pretty ferociously. Now, with the introduction of the IdeaPad Flex 14, there’s yet another option available, and with its purpose in mind, it succeeds. Thanks to the Flex, for (far) less dough than a comparable Yoga, you can still score a capable convertible Ultrabook that doesn’t break the bank.

The Lenovo Flex 14 offers Windows 8 convertible goodness to the mid-priced market. The challenge is that this is an increasingly crowded space with ASUS, HP and Dell encroaching. The Flex brings its sturdy and shape-shifting hinge to the table, but that only goes so far since you lose the Yoga's tablet and narrower tent modes.

The Flex 14 makes a good first impression—it has the sleek black soft-touch case we’ve seen on other recent Lenovo laptops—but the island chiclet keys lack the subtle sculpting found on more expensive Lenovos, and they feel somewhat mushy.

The Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 14 takes Lenovo’s concept pioneered in the IdeaPad Yoga 11S ($999) and Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13, and gives us the 75% version: The screen doesn’t swing all the way around.

The Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 14 finds itself awkwardly in the middle: it fails to match the utility offered by the Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga and other convertible notebooks, but it's also more expensive than most competing standard notebooks. Users who don't mind paying a bit more will receive some added utility form the Flex 14, but that money can likely be put to better use on other devices if you don't need an all-in-one solution.

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 Nvidia 3D graphics and a subwoofer. In terms of portability, the entry-level Dell Inspiron 14R-5437 lasts almost two more hours and still has a touch screen. Though the Dell 14R-5437's screen doesn't flip around like it does on the Flex 14, the extra $350 in your pocket will assuage that possible envy point. If you really like the IdeaPad Flex 14's swinging screen, check out the similarly priced IdeaPad Yoga 13 or other flipping convertible laptops soon to come.

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 full use out of the Flex 14 if you happen to require something as specific as an ultrabook that can have its display extend to an extreme length.

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, materials. In short, the Flex is affordable, but it feels cheap, and constantly reminds the user that they received what they paid for.

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 laptop, even without the gimmicks.

Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 15-59393845

The Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 15-59393845 continues Lenovo’s unique flexible laptop concept. Costing about only 450 US dollar, the Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 15 is leaning more on the cheaper side. However, that does not mean that it comes with under-par specifications.

The heart of the device is a 4th generation Intel Core i5-4200U with a clock rate of up to 1.6 GHz and integrated Intel HD Graphics 4400 card. In addition, the laptop features  a 500 GB HDD and a 128 GB SSD. Paired with 8 GB RAM, the device will rarely give any issues with casual usage.

Furthermore, the display is also noteworthy. The 15.6 inch HD display supports up to 10 fingers multi-touch and has a resolution of 1368 by 768 pixels. As for connectivity, the device supports 802.11(b,g,n) as well as Bluetooth 4.0. The Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 15 also houses the basic ports such as 2 USB ports, 1 audio jack and 1 SD card reader.

All in all, the Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 15-59393845 has all the necessary components to function properly. The price is also reasonably good. If the user is on a tight budget, this laptop can be considered.

Here, the Lenovo Flex 2 15 nails it. All configurations have a fourth-generation Core i processor, and they are available for as little as $529 to $799 as of this writing – well below the MSRP. With this in mind, it’s easy to overlook the glossy display and questionable build. It’s also easy to give Lenovo a pass for Stand mode. It takes nothing away from the overall product, and some users might actually find it useful.

The IdeaPad Flex 15 is an affordable touchscreen convertible laptop that switches into Stand Mode to become part-tablet, part-laptop. It's a great concept that Lenovo has already used on the Yogas and Yoga Pros, but here it's gone to waste due to an utterly catastrophic display (low brightness, low contrast, exaggerated colours...)

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.

If you find yourself asking people to 'Take a look at this…' or telling them 'Here, I'll show you…' on a daily basis, the Lenovo Flex 15D is worth checking out. Its adaptable form suits the classroom or boardroom, in which situations you're unlikely to notice the lack of gaming and number-crunching power. And for £500, you do get quite a lot for your money. For everyone else, however, its lacklustre battery life and low-res screen make it hard to recommend.

Source: PC Advisor English
The Lenovo Flex tries to be different with its semi-convertible design, but can't quite pull it off at such a low price. The folding design is handy for watching video, and the limited battery life is less a major weakness for a large laptop that will stay at home. However, the overall performance of the Flex is weak even for a budget laptop, so it can only be recommended for basic tasks such as web browsing, streaming video and word processing.

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.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  

4510U: Haswell-based ULV dual-core processor clocked at 2.0 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.1 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4400 and a dual-channel DDR3 memory controller.


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.

14.0: 14 inch display size is a mixture between the small formats of subnotebooks and the 15 inch standard display. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.

15.6: 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. However nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.
