The Flex 5 is built for its price range

That’s the worst result I’ve seen from any recent Chromebook — the Spin 713 averaged seven hours and 29 minutes, and that still wasn’t a great result for the category. The Flex also took a while to charge. The 45W adapter took an hour to juice the laptop’s battery up to just 54 percent with light Chrome use

I've used a dell, lenovo and a hp before. Lenovo wins by far, in everything for me. I currently use a ideapad flex 5, only encountered 2 issues.

- Fans going off after long hours of usage sometimes (4x in 7 months), easy fix. Hold the power button

- Motherboard gave up, but its tech, it happens. G...

Thinking about getting a Lenovo Ideapad Flex 5 14

I’m starting school soon and am in need of a new laptop; however, I don’t want to break the bank in the process. After doing some quick research it appears that the Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5 14 is actually a really decent option. I’m, in no way, a tech savvy person so all of the technical specs tend to ...

If you want to stay in budget the **[Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5]([URL REMOVED] that is on sale at Walmart would be a great laptop to get. Specs-wise it does not match up to other budget laptops but when you add the 2 in 1 feature it is worth every penny. It will be able to fulfill its role as a student l...

Cheap, Practical, Fast, Long Battery, Beautiful Engineering

Best bang-for-your-buck Chromebook, with the beauty of a high-end yet overly priced Samsung, Asus, or Pixelbook. This little book is perfect in almost every way. In general, this Chromebook is perfect for what I bought it for: work-related tasks on the web, surfing the web, using Google Docs to type...

I have always used the AMD ones instead of the OEM ones. They usually expose new or extra features and allow me to game on this "not gaming laptop" (ideapad flex 5 14are05). Plus the OEM ones gave me issues when the laptop would go-to sleep it would sometimes wake up with a black screen. Which is a ...

Right hinge broke! Beware!!

Revised - 3/9/21 As others have complained, the right hinge for the monitor is defective. I can't open/close the laptop unless I do it very slow using two hands so the monitor would not break. From what all are saying I guess I am SOL. I will contact Lenovo none the less to see if the will fix this....

copycat of any other laptop

This laptop is just like any other HP touchscreen laptop so I don't suggest wasting $400 on a useless, sometimes unresponsive laptop. If you actually are insisting on buying this useless piece of crap laptop YOU"RE WASTING YOUR HEAVENLY TIME. -Thank you and follow me on insta @Xoxo.Lonbon102 thx
