The Lenovo Flex 3 80JM002AUS laptop with Windows 10 offers the natural 360-degree pivot and portable PC, tablet, tent, and stand-use modes. Thankfully, the standard Flex 3 is more wallet-accommodating. Starting a price tag from just $679, it offers comparable power yet better battery life. Despite the fact that its body is somewhat greater and heavier, you get that 15-inch screen and the phenomenal 2-in-1 design- it’s a framework that is more than just a cheap price, but a worth-to-own machine.
A Charming Simple Design
Lenovo Flex 3 has a more simple appearance, with thick axis, in compare to its more posh brother. This unit has a matte-plastic cover with a silver Lenovo logo. The cover opens to uncover a dark, brushed-aluminum deck, and two thick, metal hinges. The base moves back to plastic, with elastic feet at every corner and vast vents toward the back. In the event that you prefer other color, you can get the same stuff in light silver or white (with an additional $50). Despite its bigger thicker and heavier review, at 20mm (0.8 inches) and 2.2kg (4.6 pounds), it’s still compact, however.
Lenovo also incorporated a hidden button for screen turn placed between the volume and the power button. Simply be mindful so as not to inadvertently press the Novo catch by the rotation bolt; it’s just there to start a processing a factory reset and recovery capacities. The matte top doesn’t catch fingerprints, and the whole bundle is a bit plain. In any case, considering the price, you wind up with a trade off that is not difficult to make.

A Crispy Sharp Screen
The Lenovo Flex 3’s 15-inch 1366 x 768-pixel screen can move and flip into different positions, yet it looks a bit diminish and dull. The additional beauty is on the body that looks and feels more like a 15-inch tablet. The 1,366 x 768-pixel resolution allows your content and images looking crisp and it’s an IPS board, as well, giving you incredible off-point views.
However, in some settings, the screen doesn’t take care of glare a little bit. Shutting off the adaptive brightness feature will give better outdoor viewing experience.
A Velvety Touchpad and Comfort Spacious Keyboard
Lenovo Flex 3 touchpad, which highlights a velvety surface, measures a large 4.1 x 2.75 inches. In spite of the fact that the one-piece touchpad needs separate mouse button, the Flex 3 never miss the left and right snaps. Two-finger pinch to zoom, let’s say, were quick and responsive.
The keyboard is amazingly large and for the most part gives a comforting typing moment, despite its spongy feels some slight flex in the center. Touch typists may require some time to get used to it. The keyboard is illuminated, as well, with only an ‘on or off’ setting. The Lenovo Flex 3 15’s keyboard stays really cool, yet even in ordinary use, the bottom can turn into verging on excessively hot.

Performance and Battery Life that Support Portability
Inside the plastic chassis, the Lenovo Flex offers the mid-range Intel Center i5-5200U processor with the Intel HD integrated graphics, 4.0GB DDR3L 1600 MHz memory, and 500 strong HDD. The included segments guarantee perfect and totally smooth normal work, essential gaming, some potential for HD media maker, an extraordinary multitasking capacities. With its 2.2-GHz Intel Center i5 CPU, 5GB of RAM, and a 500 GB HDD, the Lenovo Flex 3 offers about the same power as the more premium sibling. However, it is a bit not as much as some of its correspondingly evaluated rivals.
Battery life came in at around 4 hours with a full work day on one-time charge. That is why you don’t have to worry to browse the web while streaming movies (accompanied with the sound from Dolby Home Theater) at the same time. The harder you use the system and the brighter you set the display, the fewer battery life you will get.
