As far as affordable laptops go, the Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5 is a good choice. While the dim display is disappointing, it was a joy using this laptop. I had no problems surfing the web no matter how many tabs were open, and I could rely on the long battery life to keep me entertained throughout the day. And while it’s made mostly of plastic, the Flex 5 still looks and feels like a sleek, sturdy device that’s well worth the investment. That is if you can find it in stock. Unfortunately, Lenovo appears to have discontinued this laptop, and pricing from third-party retailers varies wildly. If you’re not into hunting down your preferred configuration or can't find a good deal on the Flex 5, check out the similarly priced HP Envy 13 x360.

Lenovo's IdeaPad Flex 5i 14 is exactly the sort of 2-in-1 convertible you'd expect from the company that pioneered this category. It's a sensible machine that's pleasing to use as a conventional laptop, or propped up for a presentation in easel or tent mode. The chassis is well-engineered, even if it's not the sleekest or lightest around. And the processing power is decent, thanks in large part to the generous 16GB of RAM and 512GB SSD of our test unit. You can do better if you venture north of $1,000—our top premium 2-in-1 pick is the HP Spectre x360 14, while the ThinkBook 14s Yoga is great for small and medium businesses. For around $700, though, it's hard to beat this configuration of the Flex 5i 14, which claims our Editors' Choice award for best midrange 2-in-1 convertible.

Some of my favorite laptops have been from Lenovo over the years. I’ve had many Thinkpads and laptops, and I currently own a Yoga 710. When they offered to send me the 2021 version of the Lenovo Flex 5 14″ 2-in-1 Touchscreen Laptop (ITL05) on loan, I had to check it out. Will the 11th generation Core i5, 16GB of RAM, and 512GB of storage in this svelte frame impress, or will it disappoint? Let’s take a look.
