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...

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...

Thinking about getting a Lenovo Ideapad Flex 5 14
After doing some quick research it appears that the Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5 14 is actually a really decent option. I’m, in no way, a tech savvy person so all of the technical specs tend to blur together, but the general specs, such as RAM, memory, and SSD, seemed quite good for the price point.

Lenovo Chromebook Flex 5 (2020)
The Lenovo Chromebook Flex 5 (2020) is a very well-built Chrome OS convertible with a 360-degree hinge. It's very lightweight and compact, so you can easily bring it around to do work on the go. The keyboard feels good to type on, with a good amount of travel, and it doesn't cause fatigue. Its 1080p...

The Flex 5 is built for its price range
That’s the worst result I’ve seen from any recent Chromebook — the Spin 713 averaged seven hours and 29 minutes, and that still wasn’t a great result for the category. The Flex also took a while to charge. The 45W adapter took an hour to juice the laptop’s battery up to just 54 percent with light Chrome use

Any laptops like the ideapad 5 15 but with a 85%+ srgb screen?
I liked everything about the ideapad 5 with 16 gb ram, 512 gb ssd, AMD Ryzen 7 4700 U processor, good build quality, good trackpad and keyboard, ips 1080p screen, etc. for around $599.

Verdict
The device is quiet, but not silent. The CPU is actively cooled.The Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5 Chromebook 13ILM05 is a well-rounded 2-in-1 Chromebook
2 Years Strong: GREAT Device
Wow. When you open it, it is ON and ready to go…instantly. We bought this in the Fall of 2020 for my mom, who struggles with communication due to a stroke. This device has been awesome. She has no patience (who does, right?) and this device brings her back to the internet or app she was on INSTANTLY...

Right hinge broke! Beware!!
Revised - 3/9/21 As others have complained, the right hinge for the monitor is defective. I can't open/close the laptop unless I do it very slow using two hands so the monitor would not break. From what all are saying I guess I am SOL. I will contact Lenovo none the less to see if the will fix this....

Lenovo Chromebook Flex 5 (2020)
Unfortunately, its speakers get loud but don't sound very good, the webcam loses out on fine details, and the microphone is staticky and records hollow-sounding speech. The port selection is sub-par, with no option to output to an external monitor, while the battery doesn't last long enough to get through a full workday.
