1 out of 5 eggsIf you can accept fan noise, it's a good one

This review is from: Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 15 Core i7 8GB 128GB SSD 15.6" Touchscreen 2-in-1 Ultrabook (59391566)

Pros: Light, Cheap with that specs.

Cons: I just turned it on from the brand new seal box same day when received, and the fan starts making notable noise.
The fan almost keeps spinning all the time, non stop, and I don't even start using it.

Every icons on the desktop is like a fan switch, u click and fan spins

I am a system administrator, none of laptops in my company does the same kind of noise.

Asking for a replacement, but NG testing team said it's normal, they didn't hear anything, and shipped it back to me.

So mad, did RMA again and request a refund.

Maybe Lenovo is using cheap fan and try to reduce the production cost.

I am looking for Asus laptop now, hopefully, no noise no more.

4 out of 5 eggsMy wife loves it

This review is from: Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 15 Core i7 8GB 128GB SSD 15.6" Touchscreen 2-in-1 Ultrabook (59391566)

Pros: This laptop is versatile and speedy for your average home user and probably 90% of other users as well. 8GB of memory is more than most people need and certainly more than my wife needs for her uses. It has an HDMI port and everything else you would expect from a laptop other than an optical drive, which isn't really necessary anyway. The 128GB SSD is quick. We have a media server and other external storage so I wasn't worried about space. The 4th generation Core i7 processor is a great chip and great value. The integrated graphics aren't bad...certainly more than enough for a non-gamer. The screen is large and although not as high quality or as high resolution as much of what you find out there, it still looks pretty nice. I bought this when it was on sale and it was a great deal. Can't believe how fast this boots. We upgraded to Windows 8.1 (it's free for those who don't know) and I actually do prefer it to Windows 8. The touch screen is responsive.

Cons: I'm not a huge fan of how much the screen wabbles on this thing. I know these 2-in-1's tend to be a little more flimsy than your typical ultrabooks and laptops and it doesn't appear to be a big deal yet. I also hate these new touchpads. I have a Thinkpad T430s and it's very similar. I'm not sure when this 2-in-1 came out, but I do wish it had a wireless AC adapter. I guess that's not much of a con since I knew it only had wireless N before I bought it.

Other Thoughts: This is a great computer for my wife. It's actually quite overpowered for her needs, but I want it to last a long time and I want her to enjoy it. She absolutely loves it and that's all that matters. She just isn't a fan of the touchpad.

This review is from: Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 15 Core i7 8GB 128GB SSD 15.6" Touchscreen 2-in-1 Ultrabook (59391566)

Pros: Working machine for the working man/woman.
College students and office employees alike couldn't go wrong with this.

-Touchscreen
Useful for when a mouse isn't around.
Personally I thought a touchscreen wouldn't get much use, changed my mind after seeing how easier it is than a touchpad.

-SSD
Very fast. Within seconds windows loads and my browser is up.

-Fast processor
Rarely have I seen slowdown. Plays HD videos flawlessly. Browses the net like a champ.

-8GB of RAM
More than I'll ever need

Cons: -Low HD space
Speed over storage. Personally the low space isn't a problem.

-Makes a cracking sound sometimes when opened and closed.
Nothing wrong with the lid so far. Hard to ignore and all.

Other Thoughts: Satisfied with selecting this as my first laptop.

2 out of 5 eggsNow I know why they call it a Flex

This review is from: Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 15 Core i7 8GB 128GB SSD 15.6" Touchscreen 2-in-1 Ultrabook (59391566)

Pros: It looks great. I like the way it feels, not too slippery. I'm a software developer and use the keyboard a lot and I do like the way it feels. When you flip it into tablet mode (keyboard is on the bottom) the keyboard and touchpad are disabled automatically so you don't have to worry about typing with your legs.

Cons: 1.) The screen/display part FLEXes - as in the top of the notebook alone flexes - which causes the screen to scramble because something is getting unconnected or connecting to something it shouldn't be. Every time you open or close or adjust the display (top part of notebook), the screen scrambles. For something that is open/closed so often, as is the case with any notebook, you shouldn't have to worry that you're screen is going to go out and never come back. You have to grab both top corners of the display and flex the screen until the picture comes back. After leaving this in the cold car for a few hours, it took an hour of being in the (warm) house before the display would show anything. I'm not sure if this is a problem with the model or just mine, but I don't think there is much I can do about it (see other thoughts) because I upgraded the SSD so will probably be blamed for causing it. I feel like its days are already numbered because whatever comes loose when pushing on the display (to open the notebook) will probably get worse over time. The screen's frame should be much stronger.

2) The touchpad buttons are actually part of the touchpad. I can't imagine why someone thought this was a good idea. If you find yourself using your right hand to move the cursor while resting your left finger on the touchpad left-click button (something I do a lot when selecting text), you won't be able to do it with this because leaving your finger resting on the button gets picked up since it is all one big touchpad. I don't know if the intention was to make it look sleeker or prettier... but it is a really bad idea. I'll take ugly buttons over this.

3) It would be great if they would have engineered a way for the screen to fold back more. If you're laying on the couch or have your feet propped up and want to rest this on your legs in tablet mode, the max angle this folds back is not enough to do this (unless you're laying flat maybe). Ideally it would fold all the way back to be like a tablet. I did know there was a limit before I bought it though, just something to help those deciding on buying one.

4) Not really a Lenovo problem but after upgrading to Windows 8.1 I constantly get "Low Memory" warnings from Windows, asking me to close programs. 8GB of memory should be able to handle Chrome and two instances of Visual Studio. This is a problem with other brands also, and may be due to the Intel integrated graphics drivers. Despite having an i7, this low memory issue will cause a second or two delay when you click on things. Page file is enabled (system managed), so you could say 16GB of memory and three applications bring it to its knees.

Other Thoughts: A few days after I received it I upgraded the ssd to a Samsung 840 Evo 256GB and gave the 128GB ssd to a friend... so I'm guessing I ruined any chance of an RMA. I've been repairing computers - including laptops - for 15 years and am sure the screen problems were not caused by me. The screen issues happened since the first day I had it.

I am disappointed. This was my first Lenovo notebook and it was the only one that had all the things I was looking for. I wish I would have made a compromise somewhere and gotten something else.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Ultrabook

This review is from: Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 15 Core i7 8GB 128GB SSD 15.6" Touchscreen 2-in-1 Ultrabook (59391566)

Pros: This Ultrabook with an i7 processor is extremely fast. The solid state drive allows the computer to boot up in under 30 seconds and files load extremely fast.

I like how it's only 15" but the keyboard also contains a keypad. It makes it very nice.

Cons: The biggest issue I have, and I didn't rate this lower because it was my bad for not looking into it more, is that the solid state drive is 128 GB... But Windows 8 takes up around 80 gigs of that. So you're only left with a little over 40 GB. Going back, I'd either get the version with a 500GB hard drive or try to find it with a bigger solid state drive at least.

The only other con I have is fairly minor and I feel like the way the touch pad for the mouse is positioned that I hit it when I am trying to type and the cursor ends up where I don't want it to be.

Other Thoughts: I'd definitely recommend this ultrabook but make sure to find an alternative if you need more than 40 gigs of storage.
