Reviews for the Lenovo Flex 6-14IKB

82.4% Lenovo Flex 6-14IKB (i5 8250U, GeForce MX130) Convertible Review | Notebookcheck
Cheaper alternative. For those seeking reasonable performance and convertible flexibility but unwilling to spend the big bucks on category leaders, Lenovo's $800 Flex 6 14—equipped with its 8th-gen Core i5, MX130 GPU, and NVMe SSD—might be just the ticket.
90% Lenovo Flex 6 14 review: A $799 convertible with dedicated graphics and a pen
Source: Neowin English
And it's quite a convertible, with a quad-core Core i5 processor, a 2GB dedicated GPU, 8GB RAM, an included pen, and the convertible form factor. Truthfully, if this doesn't meet your needs at its price point, then you're going to need to spend more money on your new PC.

Lenovo Flex 6 14 review: A budget 8th-gen 2-in-1 that falls short in the graphics department
Source: Good Gear Guide English
Sure, it's amazing that you can now snag an ultraportable 2-in-1 with a quad-core Intel CPU and discrete GPU for just $800, but the Lenovo Flex 6 14's dim screen and disappointing graphics performance count as major drawbacks.

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this 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.

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.
