60% Lenovo Flex 3 11
Source: Computer Shopper English
All in all, the Flex 3 11's value proposition is tempting, offering a full-featured 11.6-inch Windows convertible for $349. It has limited but adequate performance for most everyday apps; a comfortable keyboard and touch pad; solid overall quality; and support for occasional tablet mode and presentation easel configurations as well as laptop use.

The Lenovo Flex 3 11-inch is easily the best 2-in-1 of the budget bunch when it comes to multimode use and functionality. The convertible also offers more than 6.5 hours of battery life, which is good for a budget system. But not so fast -- literally. The $379 hybrid has some serious shortcomings when it comes to performance, coming in second to last in our testing.

Lenovo Flex 3 11 Review – small, flexible, and ready for business
Source: Slashgear English
The Lenovo Flex 3 11 is a budget laptop that doesn't feel like a budget laptop, and that makes it the most appealing among the maker's latest low-tier offerings. The Yoga-like flexibility and the touchscreen are both big perks over the Lenovo S21e and similar models, and the design is more professional, making this an option for consumers who want something that is cheap but that looks professional.

Lenovo Flex 3 (11-inch, 1120) review – handy and affordable convertible for everyday use
Source: Laptop Media English
The Lenovo Flex 3 11-inch is a decent convertible for casual use. It offers basic performance that is mainly suitable for browsing the web, playing some not so demanding games or writing. The change in the flexibility from 300 on the previous generations to a full 360-degree Yoga-style rotation is a welcome improvement. The overall design of the device is quite good and stylish, the notebook feels solid in hands and even though it has a really low price it does not have the usual plasticky feel of a cheap device.

The 11.6 inch capacitive touchscreen supports multi touch inputs and features a resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels.

11.6":

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.

1.4 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.


60%: Such a bad rating is rare. There exist hardly any notebooks, which are rated worse.
