If you think a convertible notebook is out of your price range, think again. The Flex 10 is an ultraportable dual-mode laptop with a screen that flips through 300. Stay in Laptop mode for the daily grind, and easily flip to Stand mode for a perfect way to enjoy movies.
From the manufacturer
Lenovo Flex 10 Laptop
10.1 inch Dual-mode Notebook
The Flex 10 is an ultraportable dual-mode laptop that flips 300 degrees from laptop to stand mode, a good way to enjoy movies on the go or make the most of touch applications.
10 Point Multitouch Display
Interact with your Flex 10 by using simple, intuitive gestures directly on the 10.1-inch 10 point multitouch display - optimised for Windows 8.
You can log in without typing on the Flex 10, thanks to Veriface Pro, face recognition software that uses the integrated webcam to log you in.
At a Glance
- 10.1-inch HD (1,366 x 768) display with 10-point multi-touch technology
- Intel Celeron N2840 2.16 GHz processor
- Touchscreen flips 300 degrees
- Integrated stereo speakers supporting Dolby Advanced Audio
- 720p HD Webcam
- Preloaded with Microsoft Windows 8.1
- Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0
- Lenovo Voice Control
- Intelligent touchpad and AccuType keyboard
When you're relying heavily on the keyboard - drafting documents or working on a spreadsheet, for example - keep your Flex 10 in the 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 10's design means it adapts to whatever you choose to do.
The Flex 10 is packed with a powerful Intel processor and preloaded with Microsoft Windows 8.1. The thin design of the Lenovo Flex weighs up to 2.0 kg (4 Ibs) and is only 6 mm at its thickest. It also comes with a cool-touch metal palm rest to allow you to keep going for longer in comfort.
The one-piece intelligent touchpad makes your touchpad experience more intuitive. With its large glass design, you'll find the freedom to use multi-finger gestures to perform common tasks - whether it's rotating an image or moving between multiple pages. The finger-friendly curved and back-lit key shape and ergonomic spacebar of the AccuType keyboard will work together to make it easier to type and reduce the number of typos, wherever you find yourself working.
Dolby Advanced Audio
Listening to music, films and games on your laptop PC will never be the same. With the Dolby Advanced Audio tools, you can experience riveting surround sound on your laptop PC. Dolby Advanced Audio technology enables the Lenovo Flex to deliver a crisp, clear cinematic surround sound experience over its built-in speakers. It also adds clarity to sound from headphones.

Lots of negative reviews for the Flex 10 point to issues with the touch screen. This is normally due to drivers for the touch screen not being up to date or conflicting with other drivers on the system. As the machines are mass produced and hard drives are installed from an image, the machine is only ever going to be as up to date as the original drive image installed on the drive in the factory where it was made. As a result, if you want to get the best performance, you need to update the drivers. While Windows update can take care of some of this for you, it’s normally worth checking if the manufacturer has updated drivers on their website. The following link was valid at the time of writing the review:
I didn’t run into issue with the Touch Screen not working as it shipped with Windows 8.1 pre-installed (Windows 8.1 with Bing to be precise). However the negative reviews got me checking before it arrived. All I had to do was Google “Lenovo Flex 10 Touch Screen not working” and I found the following site. With Tech supports sites such as these, it’s important to read through all of the pages until you find a solution that other people verify works.
In the end it transpires the solution was to roll back the touch pad driver, as this is conflicting with the touch screen driver after the 8.1 upgrade. The important thing to remember is that PC’s are made of components with drivers and these don’t always play nice together.
One of the things you have to expect with these types of PCs is that the manufacturer will install a ton of crap on top of Windows. The Flex 10 is no different. Unfortunately this includes some root kit malware called SuperFish. Lenovo do at least provide a tool to remove it that you can find here:[...]
It's important that you do remove this, otherwise your Flex 10 will be vulnerable to "man in the middle" attacks when you connect to https websites allowing hackers to steal your passwords.
Removing the other stuff can be a slow process if you use the Windows uninstaller in Control Panel. A better alternative is to use the Revo Uninstaller (the free version is fine), This allows you to move all trace of the junk software very quickly and you'll have a faster Flex 10 as a result.
The Flex 10 doesn’t have a fastest CPU on the world. It doesn’t have a Solid State Drive. It doesn’t have superfast graphics chip, but it’s fast enough to play mine craft at a reasonable frame rate and can stream 720P video without any issues. It’s even able to render most of the effects on Shader Toy (with very low frame rates). [...]
Overall it works smoothly and reliably as a general purpose machine for web browsing. I tend to use it for writing ideas and articles in Google Docs. What it does have is the ability to serve a specific function as a portable PC running the full version of Windows, with a real keyboard. Which is something I’d been craving as I was previously mainly using Android tablets for this function.
The unique feature of the flex is that you can flip the screen over so that the keyboard is face down and forms a stand for using it in touch mode. This was the first time I’d experience Windows 8.1 on a touch capable machine and was pleasantly surprised by how well it works.
I’d have no hesitations in recommending this. As long as you manage your expectations to a realistic level based on the CPU, Drive and Graphics, then you won’t be disappointed. However, this does come with the caveat that you will have to spend a lot of time working on this machine to remove crap-ware and root-kits before it will reach its full potential.
UPDATE: Windows 10 works like a dream on the Flex 10. If you have any trouble running the automatic update within Windows you can use the Microsoft Media Creation tool to download the 64bit version from the following Microsoft site:
Finally, if you are looking for a bag for your Lenovo Flex 10, then checkout the one I bought:
If break your LCD screen like I did this replacment works brillantly and it's not too hard to fit:
Update 25/216!!! I'm currently overseas working and my daughter informs me that the unit will no longer power on! She has also complained that it drops the wifi connection for no reason and is constantly re-connecting!! Not even 8 months old and I am currently scouring the Amazon site for how I can return it!!! No longer impressed with this laptop or Amazons returns procedures.... I will further update this review once Amazon contact me
The battery life is reasonable and it does not have a great memory, but it is more than adequate for anything I will want it for. I miss not having an optical drive, but you cannot squeeze everything into such a small space and for that sort of money.
This is a really good value notebook.
In this review, I have used Arch Linux.
Installing Arch was relatively easy. As this notebook does not have a CD/DVD drive, a flash drive had to be used to burn the LIVECD on it. Other than that, following the guide, installation was successful.
In regards to display managers, GNOME3 seems to have the best touch support. However, this does not matter as the touchegg AUR package will give you great multi-touch support. Currently using Xfce and I have no issues.
There is a noticeable positive difference in the speed with which programs are executed. Stuff is simply faster.
The touchscreen acts as a USB device, so if something happens that disconnects all USB devices, you will have to reboot the laptop for it to be re-enabled.
Touchscreen worked out of the box.
All in all, a happy purchase. Would recommend to anyone who needs a small notebook for browsing, watching movies, programming or other similar activities.
