Trying to decide if a Chromebook is right for me.
I need to purchase a new computer and I’m trying to decide if a Chromebook will cover all my bases. My computer needs are pretty basic: internet browsing, streaming videos and music, word processing, and I like to torrent. Wirecutter has a great review of the Lenovo Flex 5, which seems like it could do everything I need, and I like the price.

Excellent features for the price. Great for university.
I purchased this to be a "commuter" device for university. My Windows laptop is a bit too expensive and fragile for me to want to stuff it in a backpack and carry it around all day. When I purchased this, I was looking for something that could be used for video conference lectures, that I could do s...

Linus picks out a Chromebook for his son
The Flex 5 is fantastic for what it does. It is a great couch surfing machine, and I'm sure it will serve his son well in school. Even better that I got it at a discount since it was an open box return.

Cheap, Practical, Fast, Long Battery, Beautiful Engineering
Best bang-for-your-buck Chromebook, with the beauty of a high-end yet overly priced Samsung, Asus, or Pixelbook. This little book is perfect in almost every way. In general, this Chromebook is perfect for what I bought it for: work-related tasks on the web, surfing the web, using Google Docs to type...

I have a Lenovo Flex 5 Chromebook which I like a lot, but I really need a new Windows machine. Since I like the Flex 5, I'm thinking the Yoga might be a good choice since it seems similar. I'm looking for a minimum i5 (preferably 11th gen) processor or AMD equivalent, 256 gb SSD and I'd prefer 16 gb RAM although my current computers all have 8 gb and I don't have any issues. I need something easy to take to meetings or traveling, so lightweight and thin is a top priority.
Good little chromebook
Works great for web surfing. Compared to a much older Chromebook, this is very quick and responsive. Sound quality is good. Touch screen is responsive and convenient. I would buy again.

Lenovo Flex 5 Chromebook review: midrange done right
But if you’re wed to the sub-$500 price point, you’re unlikely to find better build quality, with a better keyboard and a better port selection, than the Flex 5, in either the Chromebook or Windows spheres. Premium Chromebooks with chassis to rival those of premium Windows laptops have been on the rise for a few years now, and it’s nice to see that trend extending to lower-priced devices as well.

512 GB of SSD. Moving from a decked-out Dell XPS 9560 and it feels great in comparison if not better if you compare the build quality, screen, keyboard, speakers, and touchpad keeping the price in mind (2250 AED|615 USD|46k INR). Will be using it for normal web browsing and the occasional Fortnite/older AAA games/indie games. The performance for the above looks great for my needs so far.

My heart broke each time I open my laptop.
The Flex 5 Chromebook has a similar design flaw. Honestly, someone really needs to take this company to court and give them a good wringing. They are trash all around. Their laptop designs and specs are good, but they are selling garbage and their quality assurance and customer service is the worst in the industry.
