77.2% Lenovo Flex 6 11 (Celeron N4000) Convertible Review | Notebookcheck
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.
84% Lenovo Flex 6 11″ review: Decent battery life with performance hiccups
Source: Techaeris English
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.

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.

Lenovo Flex 6 11″: A cheap starter 2-in-1 for most, an excellent side device for everyone else
Source: Our IT Department English
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.

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.

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.

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.

Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 6 14 (2019) review: A solid, bargain-priced 2-in-1 saddled with iffy battery life
Source: Good Gear Guide English
Having ticked off all of the Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 6 14’s performance numbers—some good, some only so-so—there’s one more figure we should focus on: 500, as in dollars, which is a pretty inexpensive price tag for a polished quad-core convertible like this one. Sure, we would have preferred better battery life and a brighter display, but compromises are the name of the game when it comes to budget laptops. If you’re in the market for a bargain-priced yet productivity-focused 2-in-1 and you can live without all-day battery life, the IdeaPad Flex 6 14 is worth a look.

Comment

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.
