First Look: Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 20 hands-on: a tabletop PC that's not too heavy

1:05 /

Slim and light, considering its 20-inch screen, the Flex 20 works as an all-in-one or mega-tablet.

I'm Dan Ackerman and we are here taking a look at the brand new Lenovo Flex 20. This is one of those all-in-one systems where there's a battery inside and a hinge that folds out, I call this tabletop PCs and we've seen them from 18 inches in size all the way up to 27. The 27 is actually from Lenovo. This 20-inch size is a nice in-between and I like this one a lot because it is a lot lighter than some of the earlier versions of 20-inch all-in-one tabletop PCs that we've seen. Those models have been like 12, 13 pounds. This guy is about 7 and a half or 8 pounds and I really like how the hinge will fold down and stay at pretty much any angle and then you can just, you know, lift it, raise it and lower it pretty much with one hand. And of course, it's got a reasonably high-res screen 1600 x 900 and uses the latest Intel Fourth-generation they call it Haswell, Core i-series processors. I'm Dan Ackerman and that is the Lenovo Flex 20.
