About this deal

When connected to a Wi-Fi 6 capable router, you can expect to see speeds of between 649-1201Mbps when in the same room as the router or a satellite. Instead of face recognition to log in to your Windows account, you can use the keyboard-mounted fingerprint reader to avoid cumbersome passwords. Although the IdeaPad Flex has a slightly smaller display, it has a 360-degree hinge that lets you use the laptop as a tablet, while you can only use the X515 in clamshell mode. gets you the most powerful version, with a Core i7-1065G7 processor, 8GB of RAM, and a roomier 512GB SSD.

The screen is easy to lift with one finger, although the keyboard begins to lift once you push the screen past 120 degrees. The latter supports charging the laptop itself, mitigating the slight disappointment of the barrel connector. The Surface is better for most uses, with a high refresh rate 120Hz display that's sharper, brighter, and more color accurate, a much better touchpad, and a far superior webcam and microphone that are better for video conferences. However, the Lenovo has a 360-degree hinge that lets you use it as a tablet, which you can't do on the ASUS. The touch response is quite good here but I mostly used the keyboard as using the touchscreen requires extra responsibility of keeping the screen very clean.The brand first launched a range of 2-in-1 laptops back in 2011 but have since created some of the thinnest, lightest and most powerful laptops on the market today, notably the Lenovo yoga range. Even the Spin 3 (279 nits) and Yoga C740 (250 nits) get brighter, and we knocked those laptops for having dim panels. Credit subject to status, UK residents only, FIVE TECH LIMITED acts as a broker and offers finance from PayPal Credit.

Gen 1 Type-A ports, a rarity on ultraportable laptops these days, and handy for connecting one of the vast number of devices that haven't yet moved to USB-C. PCMark 10 assesses office-centric tasks such as word processing, spreadsheet jockeying, web browsing, and videoconferencing, while PCMark 8 ranks the speed of the laptops’ storage subsystems.

There’s nothing unique or flashy about the IdeaPad Flex 5's design, but it certainly doesn't look bad.
