Reviews for the Lenovo Flex 6-11IGM
Flexibility for $280. The Flex 6 11 tries to be both an inexpensive Windows tablet and a laptop all at once. It does the job decently enough for a Celeron-based system, but the subpar display leaves a lot to be desired even at this low price range.
The Lenovo Flex 6 11″ is a portable convertible that is lightweight and compact with decent battery life and semi-acceptable performance for basic computing tasks on the go. To be totally honest though, unless you absolutely need Windows 10, I’d go with a similarly priced Chromebook as you’ll get much better performance with similar specifications for basic tasks like word processing and web browsing.

The Lenovo Flex cuts some corners but ultimately delivers as an affordable combination laptop and tablet, if you keep expectations in check.

Still, I have to recommend buying that higher end model for an extra $57. The added processing power and RAM will open up a ton of possibilities, and you'll just have a better overall experience.

A low-resolution display and a plastic chassis detract from the Lenovo Flex 6 11, an otherwise well-rounded budget 2-in-1 convertible laptop.

At the end of the day, the Flex 6 11 is an excellent entry-point computer for younger children or older persons who have never used a Windows 10 device before. The build and design are simple but still have a premium feel, and the display is excellent for multi-media consumption. The processor on board also makes the device perfect for casual web browsing, and the extended battery life makes it excellent for watching movies and TV shows. You can buy the Flex 6 11 as we had it configured here from Lenovo for $329.
