When it comes to entry-level laptops it’s all about what you get for the price. So when we evaluate the Flex 3 it’s important to consider how much the device is worth. At $500 or more the Flex 3 feels far too expensive. Sure the design is great, with wonderful audio quality and a solid touchpad, but the dulled display and weak specs are troublesome. At that price point the Dell Inspiron 11 3000 is a better option, offering stronger performance and a slightly slimmer design for a similar price. However, those weak points are far more palatable at around the $350 price range.
In fact the Lenovo Flex 3 is one of the better entry-level multi-mode laptops (when it’s actually listed at that price). Few budget hybrids offer the quality build that the Flex 3 boasts. It’s sturdy and durable while remaining portable enough to easily travel around with.
That’s who this device is best suited for: Users that want the flexibility and utility of a hybrid, but don’t mind giving up some of the performance that your standard laptop offers.
- Weak performance
- Dull Screen
- Shallow key travel
