On the Flex 81SS0005US, you get a Full HD display that looks sharp and vivid. viewing angles on the Lenovo Flex's IPS-technology display are quite good. The Flex's touch display responds well to taps and swipes .Although the screen dims when viewed from extreme angles, it doesn't show signs of inverse colors, as you'll see on cheaper displays.
The Lenovo Flex's backlit keyboard feels comfortable, with slight concave keys with tactile bump about half way of each keystroke. It doesn't include a number pad, but remains reasonably roomy, with very little signs of bending in the middle.
Beneath the keyboard's bottom-right corner sits a fingerprint reader, which you can use to unlock your Windows profile and open Windows Hello supported apps with a single touch.
A midsize trackpad lets you interact with the Flex, giving a smooth and responsive experience. It delivers accurate swipes, but requires a fair amount of pressure before it can click. To that, there's a 720p webcam on the screen's top bezel, which is a little grainy and nosy, but as usual manages to capture relatively clear and sharp video, pretty perfect for Skype chatting.
For sound, there's a pair of bottom-firing Harman Kardon speakers, better than most average laptop speakers.
AMD's Ryzen R5 processors are very good performers with a remarkable balance between efficiency and pure speed. Our review unit comes with the AMD Ryzen R5-3500U with four Zen+ cores (8 threads) clocked at between 2.2 - 3.8 GHz, a Radeon RX Vega 8 graphics card, 8GB of RAM and a 256GB solid-state drive.
This Picasso SoC uses the Zen+ microarchitecture that promises an increase of up to 3 percent over its predecessor. Furthermore, the 12nm process focuses on higher clock rates while maintaining power consumption at the very minimal.
The processor used here is AMD's latest release for budget notebooks. So far, it makes short work of the usual productivity tasks and can even tackle some demanding tasks like video editing. For the business executive who needs to take notes on the go or edit a few spreadsheets on the flip, the Lenovo Flex has the muscle to handle that and some more.
