72% Review Update Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 15D 59405766 Notebook | Notebookcheck
Flexible. Lenovo tries to make using a touchscreen easier for the users of the IdeaPad Flex 15D with an opening angle of up to 300 degrees. We indeed liked this solution. Our test uncovers whether the device is also convincing beyond this feature.
60% Lenovo Flex 15D review
Source: Stuff TV English
If you find yourself asking people to 'Take a look at this…' or telling them 'Here, I'll show you…' on a daily basis, the Lenovo Flex 15D is worth checking out. Its adaptable form suits the classroom or boardroom, in which situations you're unlikely to notice the lack of gaming and number-crunching power. And for £500, you do get quite a lot for your money. For everyone else, however, its lacklustre battery life and low-res screen make it hard to recommend.

60% Lenovo Flex 15D review: a budget laptop that handle basic tasks but not much more
Source: Tech Advisor English
The Lenovo Flex tries to be different with its semi-convertible design, but can't quite pull it off at such a low price. The folding design is handy for watching video, and the limited battery life is less a major weakness for a large laptop that will stay at home. However, the overall performance of the Flex is weak even for a budget laptop, so it can only be recommended for basic tasks such as web browsing, streaming video and word processing.

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.


63%: Such a bad rating is rare. There exist hardly any notebooks, which are rated worse.
