Lenovo Flex 14 review

 

This budget-conscious 2-in-1 brings on the power

Full-sized ports ; Fast-charging features ; Powerful innards

Slightly hard to open with one hand ; Display appears too reflective

The Lenovo Flex 14 (known as Yoga 530 outside the US) is a good choice if you're in the market for a 2-in-1 laptop, but don't necessarily have the budget for its larger sibling, the Yoga 730.

Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 14 review

 

You're getting you money's worth with Lenovo's Flex 14

Solid performance ; Excellent keyboard ; Strong battery life ; Above average speakers

Subpar display quality ; Bendy plastic build ; Keyboard lacks backlight

Corners have been cut but the Flex 14 remains an acceptable budget option

Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 14 review

 

Lenovo's IdeaPad Yoga series is one of the best laptop lines of the past couple of years, and one of the few real standouts of the still-young Windows 8 era. But Yoga systems, with flexible hinges that fold all the way back into a tablet mode, are...

The Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 14 is inexpensive for a fourth-gen Core i5 laptop, with a good keyboard and touch pad, and excellent battery life. The 300-degree hinge gives you a second kiosk mode, if you want.

Because the hinge doesn't go back a full 360 degrees, it's not as useful as tabletlike hybrids. The largely plastic body doesn't have that premium IdeaPad feel.

Lenovo tries something new with the semi-hybrid IdeaPad Flex 14. The fold-back hinge is of dubious practical use, as it doesn't fold all the way down into a tablet, but if you pick the right configuration, this is still a good, inexpensive Core i5...

Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 14

 

The Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 14 doesn't have as full a screen swing as of the IdeaPad Yoga family, nor as much of the latter's utility.

Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 14 review

 

Though powerful and reasonably portable, the Flex is held back by mundane build quality and an awful display.

Lenovo’s Flex is a compromised laptop, but not because of the 300-degree hinge, which serves its purpose of making touch use more convenient. The problems are more traditional issues which have plagued budget laptops for years: display, touchpad,...

Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 14 (2019)

 

If you don't mind cranking up the screen brightness, you'll find Lenovo's IdeaPad Flex 14 an attractive convertible laptop for $899.99—a Core i5 2-in-1 that competes well with more costly Core i7s.

Aggressively priced. Good battery life. Webcam slider shutter. Fingerprint reader in keyboard deck.

Slightly dim screen. A few ounces overweight. Pen not included.

Bottom Line: If you don't mind cranking up the screen brightness, you'll find Lenovo's IdeaPad Flex 14 an attractive convertible laptop for $899.99—a Core i5 2-in-1 that competes well with more costly Core i7s.

Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 14 review: A consumer-oriented convertible laptop

 

This thin-and-light comes with a feature few of its ilk offer: A removable battery.

Removable battery ; Solid benchmark performances ; Very good battery life

Limited storage ; Heavy for a thin-and-light ; No 5GHz Wi-Fi ; Only 100 mbps ethernet

The IdeaPad Flex 14 is a compelling option for consumers and small businesses that want a budget-priced, touch-capable Windows 8 notebook.

Review: Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 14

 

Lenovo has seen the future, and the future is hinges. Or so it thinks.

Overall good performance, and exceptional battery life. Sturdy chassis. Dragon Assistant comes preinstalled, so you can you navigate by voice (but not dictate memos). Solid audio

Half-baked hinge design. Rickety touchpad. Rotten viewing angles, a low resolution, and a dim LCD will have you rubbing your eyes

Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 14

 

The Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 14 doesn't quite go all the way for convertible laptop buyers.

Innovative hinge design. Eight hours battery life. 10-point touch screen. Comfortable keyboard. Removable battery.

Screen doesn't flip all the way around. Not a lot of free space on the C: drive. 1,366 by 768 resolution is low

The Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 14 has innovation, a responsive touch screen, and battery life on its side. However, for only 80 dollars more you can get the whiz-bang mid-priced EC Asus N550JV-DB72T, with its large 1080p screen, Core i7 performance with...

Lenovo's Flex 14 bends over backward to impress

 

Unlike the full hybrid IdeaPad Yoga, the less-expensive Flex 14's hinge only goes back about 300 degrees.

The ; is inexpensive for a fourth-gen Core i5 laptop, with a good keyboard and touch pad, and excellent battery life. The 300-degree hinge gives you a second kiosk mode, if you want.
