Lenovo Flex 6-14IBK (Kaby Lake-R) Laptop Review

What's Hot

 

Discrete GPU: While the MX 130 might not be as good as NVIDIA's mobile gaming GPUs, if your application can utilize a discrete graphics card, this notebook has one in such a flexible form factor.

 

Very Lightweight: One aspect of the notebook we really enjoyed was how lightweight it was. These days with larger batteries a lot of notebooks weigh a lot, which makes them cumbersome to take around.

 

Display and Camera: A lot of new notebooks with thin bezels have their cameras moved to the bottom of the screen, and personally we don't really like the camera placed there due to weird angles. On this notebook, you get the camera at the top of the notebook.

 

 

 

What's Not

 

WIFI: The WIFI was a bit underwhelming.

 

 

Final Thoughts

 

The Lenovo Flex 14 is a very versatile notebook with a solid array of features in a very slim form factor. The inclusion of the MX 130 is a nice touch, and if you have an application that can use its acceleration, then it's not a bad thing to have. The price is also very reasonable.

While the WIFI wasn't the most impressive, the storage performance of the notebook was. Battery life and thermals are what you might expect from a very thin notebook with a discrete GPU. Overall, if you are looking for a goto notebook for your everyday tasks, this one should meet your needs at a reduced budget.

The Bottom Line


Chiming in at under $1,000 with a dedicated GPU, the Lenovo Flex 6 offers a decent amount of value and features.
