Performance

It contains a 3 to 4.1 GHz Dual-Core Intel Core i3-1115G4 (11th Gen) processor with 6 MB of L3 Cache.

With an 11th gen Intel CPU you can be assured that the laptop has a recent CPU. Whilst not the latest, due to the release of the Intel 12 Series CPUs, it is still recent. However, with the release of the 12th gen you may wish to choose that instead to ensure the longevity of your new laptop.

There's a Integrated graphics card which is a Intel UHD Graphics.

An integrated card tends to not offer as much graphics processing power as a dedicated video card.

Connections

You'll find Wifi 5 inside the laptop, which is the previous generation. However, this does not mean its necessarily a major disadvantage. Wifi 5 is more than capable for the majority of the users, with only top tier users really requiring Wifi 6 at the moment.

With the latest standard of Bluetooth included, Bluetooth 5, you'll be set for a few more years of ensuring any new peripheral purchased is fully compatible.

Ports & Peripherals

When it comes to ports, it's offered with 2 x USB Type-A (USB 3.1 / USB 3.2 Gen 1) ports. 2 Type-A ports is usually enough for regular laptop users, giving you enough freedom for the peripherals you need.

There's an option of using the Type-C USB ports, with 1 x USB 3.1 / USB 3.2 Gen 1 (Supports Power Delivery) ports being offered too, allowing both the use of almost any current peripheral, but also adaptors & dongles allowing use of additional ports for the laptop.

HDD User Password Protection offers you the chance to put a password directly on your hard drive, and ensure that even if someone cracks open your laptop they can't access your data without the password.

Don't fret about your wired headphones though, the 3.5mm headphone jack will let you plug right in.

Reviews of the Lenovo 14" IdeaPad Flex 5
Rated 4.0 / 5 from 8 Reviews
Refresh keeps same great features, but stick with AMD for best performance
windowscentral.com
  • - 3.5
Intel performance in the Flex 5i 14 isn't particularly exciting and the display is still underwhelming. But the feature set — including speakers, ports, keyboard, camera shutter, fingerprint reader, and battery life — is well appreciated at this price. Check out AMD Ryzen models if you need top performance for less money.

Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5 14 (2020) Laptop Review

  • - 3.6
The Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5 is satisfactory as a workstation. Our model with the Ryzen 5 4500U CPU and 16GB of memory is good for multitasking and can run most applications smoothly. Also, it doesn't lose performance over extended periods under load. The NVMe SSD is amazingly fast, so large files transfer very quickly. There's a good selection of ports, including HDMI and USB, for an external monitor and peripherals. Unfortunately, even the highest-end models with a dedicated NVIDIA GeForce MX330 GPU aren't suited for large-scale or time-sensitive creative work.

AMD nails it again

The Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5 is a spectacularly fast laptop for $600, with a build quality that at last earns the price. The configuration is impressive as well — you don’t often get a 256GB PCIe SSD and 16GB of RAM for anywhere near this price. If a budget performer is your goal, then this is a great laptop.

Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5 14 review (2021 Flex 5 14ALC05 model, AMD Ryzen 7 5700U)
ultrabookreview.com
  • - 4.2
With the AMD Ryzen 5000 hardware inside, the Flex 5 is one of the most powerful 14-inch budget laptops you can get right now. It's also a convertible and doesn't compromise on the build quality, inputs, audio, IO, or battery life, but it does come with one major deal-breaker: a dim and washed-out display with a 60% sRGB panel. That's just not for me and I'd rather pay extra or even sacrifice on the performance just to get a usable display instead. You, however, might feel otherwise, and if that's the case, you'll hardly find a better value laptop in this class. My entire experience with this notebook is documented down below.

Lenovo's latest flexible friend will last a whole working day, and have enough juice for a Netflix binge on the train home

The Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5 is a decent laptop-tablet hybrid that's well-suited for work and play. The lightweight build and long battery life make it a good choice for commuting and travelling, but the display is of middling quality, and some design choices, namely the trackpad, are a little awkward.
