The versatile 2-in-1 laptop strikes a great balance between performance and price when compared to other models in its category. Students and home users with tight budgets may want to consider this Lenovo Flex.

Costco has the 14-inch Lenovo Flex 5 convertible on sale at the moment for $100 USD off from its original price of $749. The deal is notable for including an Intel Core i5-1135G7 CPU which is the chipmaker's latest 11th gen model.

Other than the CPU, the configuration also comes with Wi-Fi 6, a backlit keyboard, an active stylus pen, and a 1080p touchscreen. We especially appreciate the 16 GB of RAM and 512 GB NVMe SSD as many other Lenovo deals typically come with just half these capacities.

Before making the jump, buyers should keep in mind that the Flex series is home to Lenovo's low-end to mid-range laptops. As a result, users should not expect display quality or chassis quality to be as premium as the pricier Yoga series. Serviceability is also more difficult than it needs to be. This still remains one of the least expensive laptops with the Core i5-1135G7 CPU without needing to incur steep cuts to RAM or storage.

See our review on the 2019 Flex 14 to learn more about the chassis and its features. The configuration on sale uses the same external design as previous years.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
