Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 6-14IKB Review

Product Details

Lenovo's IdeaPad Flex 6-14IKB offers a premium 2-in-1 experience at a mid-range price. The slick, sleek laptop feels built to last and has enough hardware to handle a range of tasks, including light to moderate gaming.

This model's Quad-Core/Eight-Thread Intel Core i5-8250U processor, 8GB of RAM and 256GB SSD provide speed and storage power for a range of applications. Its anti-glare, IPS LCD display delivers a 1920 x 1080 resolution and brightness level of 250 nits. It's compatible with the optional Lenovo Active Pen for Windows Ink support. It also includes a nondescript 720p webcam and dual Harman speakers with surprisingly rich, full-bodied Dolby Audio Premium sound.

On the Geekbench 4 general performance test, our review unit scored 12,130, which easily beats the 10,795 average for a premium notebook. It's a little lower than the 13,549 score from the Inspiron 13 7000 2-in-1 with an Intel Core i7-8550U processor and 1TB of NVMe storage, but closer to the 12,740 score from the Dell XPS 13 with an eighth-generation quad-core Ryzen 5 2500U CPU and 16GB of RAM.

On the HandBrake test, our review unit converted an HD video to MP4 file at a rate of 62 frames per second. This is below the 73 fps category average but close to the 71 fps rate from the Intel-powered Envy x360 15t and the 52 fps rate from the AMD-powered Spin 5. It's also slightly better than the 56 fps score from the Acer Aspire 5 with an eighth-generation quad-core i3 CPU.
