Product Description

Product Description

The 15.6" Lenovo Flex 15 is an affordable thin and light dual-mode notebook PC with a 10-point touchscreen that flips 300o, which makes it perfect for working in laptop mode or enjoying a movie in the unique stand mode. Plus, at just .87" thick, it's lightweight for mobile users who need the portability as well as the added functionality of the dual-mode design.



Introducing the Lenovo Flex 15 - it's more than just a typical notebook.  If you think a convertible notebook is out of your price range, think again. The Lenovo Flex 15 is a unique, thin and light, dual-mode laptop that flips 300 from laptop to stand mode, a perfect way to enjoy movies on the go or make the most of touchscreen applications.


At a Glance:

• Dual-mode notebook PC – switch between Laptop and Stand modes
• Affordable notebook with a unique 300folding design
• 10-point multi-touch 15.6” HD screen – the convenience of touch
• Thin and light – less than 1” thick, only 5 lbs.

Dual-Mode Notebook — Switch Between Laptop and Stand Modes

When you're relying heavily on the keyboard — drafting documents or working on a spreadsheet, for example — keep your Flex 15 in the classic laptop mode for maximum productivity. But when you're focusing on touch applications, web chatting, or enjoying a film or video, flip the screen 300 degrees to enter stand mode. The Flex 15's unique design means it adapts to whatever you choose to do.

10-Point Multitouch Display

Interact with your Flex 15 by using simple, intuitive gestures directly on the 15.6" 10-point multitouch display — optimized for Windows 8. With up to 5 hours battery life between charges, the Flex 15 is an ideal companion for users on the go. Lenovo Energy Management protects the long-term durability of the battery and uses advanced energy-saving technology to increase time spent between charges.

Less than 1" Thick; Weighs Only 5 Pounds

Thin and light laptops usually bear a hefty price tag, but the affordable Flex 15 is only 0.87" thick and weighs in at just 5.1 lbs. It’s perfect for the mobile user who needs the dual-mode functionality.

AccuType Keyboard

The acclaimed AccuType keyboard is ergonomically designed to make typing more comfortable and to reduce errors.

Stereo Speakers With Dolby Advanced Audio

The Flex 15's speakers deliver rich stereo sound, while Dolby Advanced Audio provides an immersive audio experience, enhances audio quality, and reduces distortion. Optimized for Windows 8, the intuitive, easy-to-use touchpad features simple scroll, zoom, and rotate functions. You can toggle the Charm bar or app bar, or switch among
applications by edge swipe on the touchpad. With OneKey Recovery, bouncing back from technical difficulties is a snap. The Flex 15 also makes data backup and recovery a snap

I upgraded to this from a 4 year old Lenovo B450. First off I bought this on Prime and paid $10 extra for saturday one day shipping and it didn't arrive until 3 business days later. I called Amazon customer service and they refunded my shipping and extended my Prime membership for one month.

As far as the product goes....this is my first day with it so I am still getting used to it.

Screen: This is my first computer with a touchscreen and I like it so far. This screen is very responsive. As others have stated with the Flex line from Lenovo, the screen dims uncontrollably. I just searched the web on fixes and downloaded a new display and graphic driver and as soon as it installed, the screen lit up like a christmas tree! If anyone needs help with this, leave a comment.

System: Comes with Windows 8.1 64 bit installed which was nice because I thought I would have to do the update myself. This particular model uses a Intel Core i5 and has a 1TB HDD and 16GB SSD. This computer is so much more responsive and speedy than my old Lenovo ever was.

Sound: The speakers are very impressive and even at half volume, vibrate my hands while I am typing!

Keyboard: The keyboard is.....different. The keys don't travel very far so it is going to take a lot of getting used to but it still feels like a quality keyboard. One gripe I have is the location of the "0" key on the numberpad. It is different than my old Lenovo, but then again, my old one had the CTRL and FN key swapped???? So I can't complain too much.

Touchpad: This touchpad works better than my old one. it is more responsive and I don't constantly hit it while I am typing. The palm rest surface is "metal" and feels very strange but in a good way.

I really have no complaints with this laptop. Our first touch screen and it works great. I usually buy HP but wanted to give this brand a try and I am not disappointed. It looks big and heavy but it is very light and thin. The touchscreen and Windows 8 takes some getting used to but I am a big fan.

When you have a machine that's got an Intel i5, 8GB of RAM and a hybrid drive, you expect it to be snappy and fast when using it. I don't game, what I do do is have multiple PDFs, spreadsheets, two browsers and word files open at the same time. I've been doing this for years and I don't see this computer as being that much of an improvement from my three year old HP.

I suspect it's Windows 8.1 that is the real culprit but I'm not fully convinced. The fan seems to churn a lot more than you'd expect from a modern laptop.

I like most of the things about this laptop except the touch pad (mouse pad) It gets in the way while typing and I have had some strange results. There used to be a way to turn them off, but I can't find it on this one. Also, the screen is not as bright as I would like and it adjusts by itself.... small things to me thought.
