Reviews for the Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5 CB 13IML05, i3-10110U

Lenovo Flex 5 Chromebook review: An affordable 2-in-1 for school or work
Source: Good Gear Guide English
The Lenovo Flex 5 is a good example of a Chromebook that knows what it's for. The screen's light bleed issues and audio quality are downers, but they're not going to get in the way of work or school. The combination of a 13-inch full HD screen, 10th-generation Core i3 processor and 4GB of RAM is just enough to handle basic productivity workloads while staying will under the $500 mark.

80% Lenovo Flex 5 Chromebook review: More Chromebook for now and later
Source: CNet English
Lenovo released one of the best Chromebooks of 2020 with its IdeaPad Duet two-in-one, a 10-inch Chrome OS tablet with a detachable keyboard and touchpad. However, while its small size and performance are awesome for mobility, they're limiting if you need to spend hours using it for work. For that, Lenovo's 13.3-inch IdeaPad Flex 5 Chromebook is the better bet. It's also a two-in-one, but it's more a laptop than a tablet. With the Flex 5, you're getting a larger display, a full-size backlit keyboard and better everyday performance with its 10th-gen Core i3 processor.

100% Lenovo Flex 5 Chromebook review: Perfectly balanced, as all things should be
Source: Android Central English
This laptop has everything I want in a Chromebook — compact, capable, and comfortable — while keeping the price reasonable and the build quality high. I especially love the backlit keyboard and the loud speakers sitting on either side of it.

80% Lenovo Flex 5 Chromebook review: Intel Core power in a Chrome OS convertible for $400
Source: Neowin English
The Lenovo Flex 5 Chromebook checks all of the right boxes for something that comes in at just over $400. It's a convertible with an FHD display that has pen support, it has a 10th-generation Intel Core i3 processor from the Comet Lake family, and well, that's about it.

Overall, the Flex 5 will suit mainstream users who have grown to appreciate the advantages of the simple, lightweight, and fast-evolving Chrome operating system, but also want pen support, physical connectivity, and other niceties common in the world of Windows laptops.

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:

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.


13.30":

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.


82.83%: 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.
