Reviews for the Lenovo Flex 11 Chromebook

79.8% Lenovo Flex 11 Chromebook Laptop Review | Notebookcheck
Barebones utilitarianism… One truly bright spot for Chromebooks has been the education sector, wherein their adoption has been disproportionately high. In recognition of this opportunity, Lenovo seizes the moment with what is arguably their most utilitarian—yet still affordable—notebook to date, specifically intended for students.

Out of all the cheap Chromebooks, the Lenovo Flex 11 is one of the only models that offers extra built-in durability.

Chromebooks come in all shapes and sizes. A few, like the Acer Chromebook 14, are even tougher than the sturdy Flex 11. A few have extra features, like the Asus Flip's backlit keyboard or the light on the Dell Education 2-in-1's lid that a student can use to signal a teacher at the front of the classroom. But as a well-equipped performer priced barely above a bare-bones non-convertible, the Lenovo is a flat-out bargain. We'd keep it away from liquids, but give it a solid recommendation.

Lenovo Flex 11 Chromebook review: Tough, durable and inexpensive
Source: Android Central English
If you're looking for a Chromebook that's durable and a great fit for a youngster, the Flex 11 is the best buy. I wasn't thrilled with the keyboard, and the display isn't the brightest I've tested, but the overall package has plenty to make up for the shortcomings. If buying for a student with an interest in learning to type, I have to change my recommendation and suggest that you'll simply need to spend more money for the Lenovo N23 Education model which provides a rugged frame and much better keyboard.

The Lenovo Flex 11 Chromebook is a durable 2-in-1 with enough processing power to handle multitasking for homework and research. Its screen is bland, though, and the keyboard is shallow and flat, so it's not the best to type on. If you have a bit more money, the $329 Dell Chromebook 3189 is also a durable, education-focused 2-in-1, but it lasted longer on our battery test. But for $40 in savings, the Lenovo Flex 11 keeps up with its rivals in the education space regarding performance (and surpasses its cheapest rival in Acer) with a capable 2-in-1, marred by only a few unfortunate blemishes.

Imagination PowerVR GX6250: 2 cluster graphics chip integrated in ARM SoC (e.g. used in the MediaTek MT8173)

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

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


MT8173C: ARM-based quad-core SoC that integrates a performance cluster of two Cortex-A72 cores clocked at 2.1 GHz (max.) and a power saving cluster with two Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1.7 GHz (max.).» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


11.60":

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that 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.


76.2%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
