Reviews for the Lenovo Chromebook Flex 5 13, i3-10110U

87% Lenovo Flex 5 Chromebook review: The best budget-friendly Chromebook
Source: Engadget English
Lenovo’s Flex 5 Chromebook is probably the best Chromebook out there for most people. It’s affordable, at $409, but it cuts very few corners. The keyboard and screen are great and it has enough power for most tasks. If you’re a power user, you might want a laptop with more than 4GB of RAM or 64GB of storage. But most people in the market for a Chromebook will be quite happy with this laptop.

If someone approached me and said, “I want a really good laptop that’s less than $500,” I’d tell them they’d have to forgo Windows and consider getting a Chromebook — a Flex 5, in particular.

Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5 Chromebook review: Everyday champion
Source: Talk Android English
It seems like there aren’t very many middle-of-the-road options for Chromebooks. You’re either getting something really cheap that comes with a lot of compromises, your have to shell out for a Pixelbook that’s painful on the wallet. Lenovo’s ThinkPad Flex 5 manages to comfortably slot into the middle of the market for anyone that wants to go with Chrome OS.

Lenovo Flex 5 Chromebook Review: The New Measuring Stick
Source: Chrome Unboxed English
To put it simply, buy this Chroembook. It has already become my go-to recommendation for anyone looking at a mid-range Chromebook that feels way more like a high-end device than it ought to. It is fast, it looks good, it feels great, it has all day battery, it gets updates for 8 years, and it is affordable. There’s just not much more I need to say, here.

There's one other thing that I find particularly interesting about the Flex 5 Chromebook, and that's that it weighs in at 2.97 pounds. Any $400-ish device that weighs under three pounds is quite impressive, and it feels really premium. Check out the unboxing below:

Comment

Intel UHD Graphics 620: Integrated GPU (GT2, 24 EUs) found on some Kaby-Lake-Refresh CPU models (15 W ULV series). Technically identical to the previous Kaby-Lake GPU called HD Graphics 620.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


i3-10110U: Comet Lake based low power dual-core processor (technically identical to Whiskey Lake and still produced in 14nm++). The CPU cores can clock between 2.1 and 4.1 GHz (all 4 cores 3.7 GHz max.) with HyperThreading (4 threads). The integrated memory controller supports DDR4-2666 and using cTDP up/down the performance can be adjusted by the OEM (10 - 25 Watt possible, 15W default). The integrated graphics card clocks from 300 - 1000 MHz and only offers 23 instead of 24 CUs.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


13.3":

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.35 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.


Lenovo: Lenovo ( "Le" as in the English word legend and "novo" (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company. From 2004, the company has been the largest laptop manufacturer in China and got the fourth largest manufacturer worldwide after the acquisition of IBM's PC division in 2005. In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company also produces monitors, projectors, servers, etc.

In 2011, Lenovo acquired the majority of Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer. In 2014, Lenovo took over Motorola Mobility, which gave them a boost in the smartphone market.

From 2014 to 2016 Lenovo's market share in the global notebook market was 20-21%, ranking second behind HP. However, the distance decreased gradually. In the smartphone market, Lenovo did not belong to the Top 5 global manufacturers in 2016.


83.5%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
