Quick and responsive Chromebook, replaced a $150 Acer 11" Chromebook that was about 6 years old and now out of updates, OMG what a night and day difference, glad i made the purchase. Screen is definitely a step up from the ones you'll see on entry level Chromebooks like the one i upgraded from, fit and finish seem decent so far after a month of owning it. Battery life will run for about 7-8 hours with screen at 75% brightness while doing normal stuff from full battery charge. Keyboard is alright, I like clicky ones on my desktop, but i realize your not going to get that experience out of a 3 lb Chromebook. Don't use the touch screen much but it seems decent in the couple of times I've played with it, I plan on giving one of these to my digital art loving daughter at Christmas and we'll see what she says about the touch screen. It doesn't scream premium like the $1,000 Chromebooks but at this price $300 I don't have to worry about something happening to it and I get 75% of the performance of those high end machines at 30% of the price. Reports updates until June 2029.

My first foray into the netbook world, this Chromebook is fast and powerful enough for me to use for work and for general life. (It's probably not good for gaming, but that's not why I bought it). Seamless transfer to add content from my Google account, including Drive, to the new computer. Battery lasted a week without a worry. It has limited onboard memory, which is what you expect with a Chromebook, and managing document and file storage is something I'm still learning. It's great in tablet mode, with a nice display and a responsive touchscreen. I caught it in a great sale, based on a recommendation from CNET.

UPDATE: I took the panel off the bottom to have a look, and the 64gb storage is indeed a normal 42mm long m.2 ssd. So it is removable and replaceable. Continue previous review: The other previous reviewer is correct, this is the Flex 5i, 8gb ram 11th gen i3 (not 10th) unit. Mine came with the advertised 64gb of storage. The description portion of this listing is the old 5, but the worded lower description is correct with the current 5i information. This is a great 2 in 1 chromebook. I have never owned one before, and did a ton of research for months before getting this one for business. I have a pixel 3xl, and (with some occasional issues) am able to link and utilize the phone and its data connection, conversations, etc. For 450 bucks, this is a snappy unit. The i3 may not be as powerful as the more expensive i5 cpu's, but it is plenty for this device. Flipping it into tablet mode works as expected. I haven't bothered to get a pen for it, as I don't do drawing or really need to write very often. I may eventually pick up on designed for chromebooks like this. (the lenovo brand pen seems to have some flaws, based on reviews). The touch screen seems nice as-is. NOTE: if you are a single person business owner, and have google workspace as your email and google system, then you will have to pay google even more just to use this chromebook with your business address, and then learn how to enable all of the settings through the admin console online. It's stupid, but what can you do if you want to use your business email address as the user on a chromebook. You could use a gmail account but then it isn't linked to your Workspace system on an OS level. Also note, you can install linux through the chrome OS as a container in the settings options. It's fairly straight-forward. I have installed Steam through that, and the flex 5i does surprisingly well as a light-gaming unit. (currently you can turn on Proton mode in steam's settings to play more windows based games). You can also flip it into tablet mode and play Slay the Spire or Mini Motorways in touch-mode. I have not tried to push the system, so I'm not sure what it can handle, but 2D games like those or Dead Cells run really great. HOWEVER: Until Valve releases an official chromebook OS app with Proton, game controllers simply do not work right now. Chrome just doesn't handle any game input currently. So controllers are out until then. The keyboard is pretty decent. It has a backlight. Useful shortcut keys up top. The front webcam is pretty terrible. Not sure what I expected, but it works. It has a privacy shield, which is great. Lastly, When you flip it into tablet mode, and want to set it down, there's no rubber feet to protect the keyboard-side-surface of the laptop that will now be on a table or whatnot. It's just the smooth surface, so don't set it down anywhere you might scratch it up. I may eventually add tiny little pieces of rubber just to give it a fraction of a mm of clearance off a surface and keep it from slipping.

I had always stayed away from chromebooks they seemed underpowered, 4 GB ram, slow what would be the point? Well I saw this on sale and gave it a try first of all it's 8 GB ram and has an Intel chip touchscreen and light up keyboard. To quote goofy "garsh"! It isn't slowed down with all that windows baggage and works great. I am pleased.

Its a chromebook. You know what you are going to get, but the responsiveness and speed of this is excellent!

We got our from the Amazon seller OnlinEmart⁡⁢ ⁡⁢for $300. Definitely worth it. It may have been last years model, but for the money, it's perfect. Fast, quick when you open items... having an actual Intel processor is definitely better than having a phone processor like a lot of other chromebooks have, especially in this price range. And to have a touch screen... perfect! Also, 8 Gb RAM makes a huge difference over 4 Gb. Also, having the 64 Gb SSD again makes it speedy and a great start. Would recommend, especially at this price point.

Just got this Lenovo Flex 5i. It is a great deal (under three hundred since late July). My unit seems flawless so far. My only disappointment is the weak camera (640x480 snapshots), I expect better webcams these days.

Got this for my wife. We are both very happy with it so far. Nice screen, metal chassis with ventilation slots. Nice speakers, spritely performance. Light up keyboard is nice. Only complaint is that the cursor arrow is difficult to spot. (Need to try some different background images.) Highly and happily recommended.
