The Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5 is a pen-supported Windows 10 2in1 convertible laptop, available on 14-inch or 15-inch displays, and optionally on Intel or AMD processors.
Whichever option you choose, you’re guaranteed excellent performance and stable battery life for up to 12 hours all day long. The price is also unprecedented, and the cheapest model is at the top end of the low-priced laptop market at £ 529.99.
In general, you can type on the Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5 without any problems. The keycaps are finely textured for convenience and are reasonably crisp even with a little flex in the center of the board.
Unfortunately, trackpads aren’t that widespread, especially considering the available space. Also, I slid a little to the left. This is great news for left-handed people, but not so great otherwise. It’s also a bit responsive by default, but at least you can easily fix it by tweaking the touchpad settings.
As with the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7, you can get a pair of 2W Dolby Atmos-certified speakers here. It’s great to hear surround sound whether you’re watching a show where the car is zooming the screen from left to right.
Battery performance is really a highlight. While working, the Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5 is comfortable to use all day long. Working without a battery didn’t feel dangerous, but after 7 hours it could be in the 20 range.
The Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5 has a 2×2 WiFi-6 antenna, which makes it look better on the wireless side and gives you the fastest wireless speed currently available.
When connected to a WiFi 6 capable router, you can expect speeds of 6491201 Mbit / s if you are in the same room as your router or satellite. Check out Best Mesh WiFi Kits and WiFi Router Roundup for the latest WiFi 6 home office solutions.
