An inexpensive IdeaPad that's not quite a Yoga

Laptops
-I'm Dan Ackerman and we are here taking a look at the Lenovo Ideapad Flex 14. Now, of course, everybody knows Lenovo's Yoga line. Those are the laptops with the screen bends back of all the way around. It become a flat tablet or if you wanna stop anywhere in between. Those can be kind of expensive [unk] by a thousand dollars. The flex line takes some of those ideas which makes them less expensive. The main [unk] flex available when a 14 or 15 inside is that the screen does bend back goes all the way like this, keeps going but then it stops right around 300 degrees like this so you'll have what I called kind of a key-off mode. And you can use that, obviously it's a touch screen. You can use that to display, let's say PowerPoint to a group or watch a video and you don't have the keyboard and the touch pad in front of you. So it sort of like a small monitor, a touch-feed monitor you can use. And then when you're done, you just fold it down and the screen comes right back here like this. Now the Flex 14 starts at under $600 that's pretty good deal. We have a core i5 version with a 128 gig SSD, I've seen the price of that very pretty steeply between seven something about 999. You really get all over the place with the pricing that Flex 14 feels a little plasticky, a little budget so you gonna wanna look at the lower end of the price scale for these. Maybe the core i5 version with a regular hard drive, where they have a core i3 version as well if I spend a thousand dollars or more on one of these-- I want a more solid body with more metal and more sort of a high-end feel. You still get the very excellent Lenovo keyboard design, although the keyboard flexes a little bit under my fingers and great touch pad, of course, the touch screen is always very responsive and it's interesting to have a flexible screen that's kind of like a Yoga and something that's a little bit bigger, those are 11 to 13-inch these come in 14 and 15-inch sizes. I'm Dan Ackerman and that is the Lenovo Ideapad Flex 14.
