Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 14 Review

The Flex 14 is designed as a decent indoor or home-based laptop and it should fit the category nicely. Compared to the IdeaPad U410 Touch Ultrabook it has sleeker design and it is lighter as well. The surface of the device is dominated with plastic material with brushed aluminum. The design feels and looks great for a sub-$500 machine, although users need to be prepared to wipe off fingerprints and dust often.

The keys on the chiclet keyboard are evenly spaced, although its plasticky feel is something we should expect from an IdeaPad notebook.

The Flex 14 has a 14-inch (1366 x 768) display, which is something quite common for a budget model. It should be ideal for general word processing and web browsing; although owners may crave for higher resolution display after using the laptop for awhile. Although the display may be underwhelming in saturation and colors, the images and text should appear crisp.

There are multiple processor options, from 1.4GHz Intel Celeron ULT 2955U processor and 1.6GHz Intel Core i5 4200U processor. Less expensive models are equipped with 500GB 5400rpm HDD and the more expensive models have 128GB SATA II SSD.
