Reviews for the Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5 14IAU7-82R7007XGE
Source: PC Mag
Overall, the Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5i 14-inch is well-built, easily handled with a comfortable keyboard and a bright screen, and relatively capable for its price. You certainly wouldn’t use it as a PC gamer—but for general office work, it offers enough performance. The screen is a bit of a wild card, since we tested 400 nits, while Lenovo only promises 300, and the color coverage could use a boost. Still, if you’re a general student or at-home worker (who isn’t these days?), this could be a smart pick. If you want a better display for a couple hundred dollars more, check out the Lenovo Yoga 7i. If you yearn for faster performance as well as a better screen, consider the Acer Spin 5. But, for someone who just wants a modestly priced, versatile, and easily moved convertible for office tasks, internet browsing and webcam sessions, look to the Flex 5i retail version.
