      Rated 3 out of 5�by a bit slow Maybe I'm still getting used to a windows 10 based computer, but this machine seems till run slowly when using MSOffice. Love the backlit keyboard, very lightweight. September 7, 2015
      Rated 2 out of 5�by Nice but too much plastic. Screen is nice, but whole laptop seems fragile overall as it's completely plastic and feels like it's going to snap in half whenever you open the lid. I'd say not to anticipate too much longevity with this one. September 7, 2015
      Rated 4 out of 5 Awesome Refurbished Laptop for Student Good luck finding a laptop as cool as this one with such good performance ratings under $300! August 31, 2015

      • Stereo Speakers With Dolby Advanced Audio

        The Flex 2 15's speakers deliver rich stereo sound, while Dolby®Advanced Audio provides an immersive audio experience by enhancing audio quality and reducing distortion.
      • Multi-touch Touchpad
