The Flex 5i is a solid Chromebook from Lenovo. It packs the same specs and performance you’ll find on a lot of laptops in this price range, and stands out just a little thanks to its colorful hardware. Lenovo suggests it’s a machine for both business and power users, though it might not quite fit the bill the way you think. The screen is average for this class of device. Battery life is good but falls just short of great. Speed and performance are fine, though anyone seeking the absolute best should look elsewhere. There are no biometrics, a bummer for business users, and the webcam could be better. The Flex 5i’s keyboard and trackpad have the goods, as do the speakers. Port selection is balanced for this class of device, and the size/weight are on the mark. Wireless performance was great. You don’t see too many blue Chromebooks these days, and that is something in the Flex 5i’s favor if you’re bored with black, gray, and silver. The Lenovo Flex 5i Chromebook earns its price point. It hits the right marks and is worth your consideration if a convertible Chromebook is in your future.

It doesn't come with a stylus as some convertibles do, but the Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5 Chromebook is an appealing touch-screen 2-in-1, with above-average performance and a comfortable keyboard. A brighter display and an HDMI port would make it an Editors' Choice award winner. Even as is, though, it deserves a spot on your list of Chromebooks worth checking out—and if Costco ever repeats its $449.99 sale, snap it up.

Little changes can elevate a good product to a great one, but the Lenovo Chromebook Flex 5i's changes are minor, and so is the payoff for it. The result is a solid Chromebook that looks good on its own but is stuck in the shadow of its big brother. I like the Flex 5i, but I still love the Flex 5 more. Especially with the higher pricing on the Flex 5i's Intel Core models compared to the 2020 model and the impending release of the Duet 5, the Lenovo Chromebook Flex 5i is facing stiff competition on all sides. The Chromebook itself is solid, but it needs more help if it wants to stand out.
