The budget 14-inch Lenovo convertible will come with a processor that's just as fast or faster than the Core i7-8565U as found on Ultrabooks almost twice the price. Lenovo have been championing the Zen 2 series with more and more options these past few weeks and the Flex 5 is the latest.

Laptops sporting AMD's latest 3rd generation U-class processors are now starting to become widely available. Users have been keeping a close eye on these new models since the Zen 2 CPU series is expected to offer similar or better performance than any Intel 9th gen or 10th gen U-class processor while costing noticeably less.

The deal of interest this week involves the 14-inch Lenovo Flex 5 convertible equipped with the hexa-core Ryzen 5 4500U for just $600 USD. This particular mid-range CPU should offer a performance level roughly in between that of the Core i7-8565U and Core i7-10710U — two high-end Intel processors found on some flagship laptops like the Dell XPS 13 series.

Other specifications are excellent for the price including the 1080p touchscreen, 16 GB of RAM, 256 GB SSD, and active stylus pen at no extra cost.

The main drawback to the system is that the Flex family belongs to Lenovo's budget range of affordable 2-in-1 laptops. Thus, you can't expect the chassis design to be the thinnest, lightest, or sexiest for its size category. For that, you would have to consider Lenovo's flagship Yoga C900 family instead.

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.
