Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5 14ABR G8
Reviews for the Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5 14ABR G8
Source: Laptop Media
The Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5 (14″, Gen 8) is an almost perfect laptop for people who are looking for a 2-in-1 notebook that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg. The notebook has a stylish and modern look and the build feels nice to the touch. The lid is built like a tank, it’s very sturdy because of the glass cover of the display. The laptop can be used just like every other ordinary clamshell notebook on the market. Of course, if you want to have some fun or maybe you want to draw something on the screen, you can use the machine in tablet mode while laying in your bed or maybe in tent mode on your desk. The keyboard is comfortable for typing because it has decent key travel and clicky feedback. The backlight is optional so keep an eye on the specs if you want to get one of these machines. The touchpad is surprisingly large for a 14-incher which is great.

There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.
The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
