Lenovo� Flex 2 (15) Dual-Mode Laptop Computer With 15.6 Touch-Screen Display & 4th Gen Intel� Core? i5 Processor, 59418271 3.5 5 41 41
Lacks some features I would like to point out a few problems. 1. There is no DVD drive as expected. 2. The keyboard is bouncy. 3. The headphone jack stopped working after a few days. 4. The battery only lasts for 2 1/2 hours. 5. The touchpad has a mind of its own. Yes, here are a few pros, like a fast performance and a strong body, but that's all I could find. November 14, 2014
Best Laptop I've Ever Owned I've owned a lot of computers. Started buying in 1980 and have purchased at least 50 or more since then. Over the last few years, I've purchased mostly laptops. I'm a web developer, so I need good performance at all times, and that can be hard to get in a laptop. Having said all that, the Lenovo Flex 2 - 15 is the best I've ever owned. It never gets hot - ever - and in fact, the bottom is usually a little too cool on my skin. Amazing! It's fast, responsive, touch screen is awesome, the ability to flip it makes a big difference too. When I need to get the screen up close to my face, so I can really see a design I"m working on, for example, I just flip the keyboard under, and it sits comfortably on my lap, but the screen is now much closer to my eyes. This laptop is fabulous. November 13, 2014
Great Laptop I purchased this laptop after my old one died after 5 years of heavy use. I was amazed at how quickly the laptop booted up! Everything runs efficiently, the fan is very quiet and I never feel heat (even after 10+ hours of constant use). The battery life is okay (could be longer) but it charges quickly so I'm not too worried about it. Great screen resolution, great everything! Looking forward to getting to know this laptop more every day. November 12, 2014
Pretty good, but not great The Good- Pretty fast, quiet, construction good, somewhat light, good keyboard backlight, wakes up quickly from standby, touch screen works well, real good value for what it comes with, was delivered very quickly! The So/So - Everyone says to go for the 1920x1080 resolution, but that's made everything too small on screen. Seems many programs not built for that resolution which makes their appearance slightly blurry. Have to increase magnification in most programs, which doesn't always look good. Wish I stayed with 768 resolution. Disappointed in trackpad's lame performance. Sound is ok. The Bad - Left shift key and space bar don't properly work 1/3 of the time. If you depress edge of these keys when typing, they don't work. You have to depress directly on center of those keys to work. Drives me nuts! All other keys work fine by lightly touching them. Very small power button on side is not convenient. Hard to find sometimes. Windows 8.1 is less user friendly. November 7, 2014
