With a high quality build and solid hinge display, the Flex 3 is an excellent budget alternative for users than the want the flexibility of hybrid and don’t mind skimping on performance. The old Flex models sort of felt like an half-way point between the traditional clamshell laptop and Lenovo’s Yoga line of convertible tablet notebooks. They offered a 180-degree hinge design, that allowed for some added flexibility, but it didn’t really capture the appealing aspects of the Yoga: the performance of a laptop with the added utility of a tablet. With the new Flex 3, Lenovo has ditched the half measures opting for a full fledged 360-degree display hinge. The result is a budget option that actually feels like a reasonable alternative to Lenovo’s more expensive Yoga line.
