Overall, that’s what we like about the IdeaPad Flex 5 Chromebook. It’s neither the fastest nor the flashiest machine, but everything is designed and specified to give you a great, hard-working Chromebook at a very affordable price. So, if you’re looking for a workhorse that can handle a little entertainment on the side, you won’t find anything better for the money.
