A desktop replacement really only has to get two things right: power and price.
Here, the Lenovo Flex 2 15 nails it. All configurations have a fourth-generation Core i processor, and they are available for as little as $529 to $799 as of this writing – well below the MSRP.
With this in mind, it’s easy to overlook the glossy display and questionable build. It’s also easy to give Lenovo a pass for Stand mode. It takes nothing away from the overall product, and some users might actually find it useful.
Ultimately, the Lenovo Flex 2 is a moderately priced desktop replacement that offers great value to those with average computing needs.
- Great value, considering price and processing power
- Large and comfortable keyboard
- Responsive trackpad
- Display lid flimsy
- Stand mode just about useless
- Glossy display
