Lenovo tries something new with the semi-hybrid IdeaPad Flex 14. The fold-back hinge is of dubious practical use, as it doesn't fold all the way down into a tablet, but if you pick the right configuration, this is still a good, inexpensive Core i5 laptop, even without the gimmicks.
Slim and light, considering its 20-inch screen, the Flex 20 works as an all-in-one or mega-tablet.
That's $75 off list and the lowest price around by at least $50. Plus: a killer tablet bonus deal!
