The Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 14 finds itself awkwardly in the middle: it fails to match the utility offered by the Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga and other convertible notebooks, but it’s also more expensive than most competing standard notebooks.

While the Flex 14 may be a bit overpriced, it is not a bad device. With strong performance, a durable build, fresh design and long-lasting battery life the Flex 14 is perfect for travel. The notebook also sports solid controls with a comfortable keyboard, reliable touchpad and responsive touch controls.

Still, with only a standard resolution display with limited viewing angles, the Flex 14 seems a bit unimpressive for its $800 price tag. The Flex 14’s lower-end i3 and i5 configurations are a bit more reasonably priced, and the low-res display is far more palatable at the lower-price points.

Users who don’t mind paying a bit more will receive some added utility form the Flex 14, but that money can likely be put to better use on other devices if you don’t need an all-in-one solution.
