"This computer works great for things like video editing and working on large canvases in Adobe Photoshop (I have CS5). The HD resolution and i7 processor makes it speedy and nice to look at. I also have installed a couple games with extensive graphics and both run smoothly on medium-level settings.
I'm not a huge fan of Windows 8 but I just ignore the apps. I actually re-installed some of the programs, such as Skype, to the desktop so I wouldn't have to use it through the apps which are quite troublesome.
One complaint is that it is a bit taller and heavier than I expected (it feels like 5 lbs rather than the advertised 4) but this isn't a problem to get hung up about.
Honestly, I'm quite surprised as to why the computer has gotten several very negative ratings, it's great for it's price. I look forward to using it for college in the fall!"
"I bought this laptop, battery lasts only for 2 hours on a full charge, I sent this back for repair(lenovo wont even pay for shipping). Even after the battery change I do not see much improvement on the battery life. The screen is impossible to see when in a bright lit room. Called customer support several times, they turn down the screen brightness way down to make the battery last long, but the screen is impossible to view at low brightness. Apart from battery and the screen I do not have any complains . I wish my laptop would hold atleast 4 hours on a single charge."
"I am not as enthusiastic as some of the others. Out of the box the battery would not hold a charge. When I got it up an running the mouse pad was very erratic. Worst when I tried to contact technical support I was on hold for an hour and finally gave up. I sent mine back. I normally don't leave comments but I am so disappointed with this product I felt obligated to in this case"
Here are some PROs: -Wonderful performance. -The speakers are amazing. - Like the fact that there is Nvidia Geforce graphic card in the laptop. (The major force in my decision of buying the Flex 2. - Nice look and feel of keyboard and sleek design! - Touchscreen.
However the CONs are: - Battery capacity is low. - Backlit keyboards aren't bright enough. - Color sharpness in the display isn't sharp, would be better if the screen is Full HD screen. - It is made up of 100% plastic. :(
Overall, I am quite satisfied with Flex 2. On the side note, I wouldn't mind paying $150-$200 more if the CONs I listed are fixed in the next versions of Lenovo Flex series."
"This laptop has many spectacular features including the convertibility which makes it a large tablet and a laptop all in one. The 1920 by 1080 graphics is awesome but the standard graphics card does not allow many games. Overall this is a very good product for anyone except for someone who wants high graphics."
