There are two heat pipes integrated into this laptop, one fan to cool the CPU and GPU. Laptop also includes Lenovo’s active pen S, which has a quad 8 battery and lasts for months.
It has pretty well built, and you can flip it to 360-degrees right on the display as it has a multimode design where you can get the display to pretty much sit whatever position you put it in. Also, you can go all the way flat and flip it around and do all of the other two-in-one activities with it. The laptop design is clean and suitable for day-to-day activities such as browsing the internet or working on schoolwork, or even streaming content.
Ports and Slots
On the left, you have a power cord, a full-size HDMI port that comes in handy to connect to an external display; next to it is a USB type-c port, but this is only for data. It will not do video or power through that USB C port. So, you can plug in your keyboards and cameras and whatever else is transiting USB C data but again, not video and not power. So, it’s not going to work with one of those single cable docks. After that, you have a headphone or a microphone jack.
On the right, two full-sized USB 3.1 ports. This port will charge your devices even when the computer is off, and you also have an SD card reader that takes full-size SD cards. It’s suitable for transferring data, and also, you’ve got your power switch over there.
Webcam is integrated on the top, having 720p. On this device, there is one privacy feature. The webcam has a proper block privacy shutter at the top that permits you to close the webcam physically when not in use. This feature also helps to maintain privacy.
Keyboard and Touchpad
Lenovo Flex 14 has a backlit keyboard, and keys are well spaced apart. It also has a nice touchpad that is made of plastic. Some Flex 14 at the higher level also have a fingerprint reader for getting into the computer.
Lenovo has been taking giant steps in the right direction. The Lenovo Flex 14 with AMD’s Ryzen 5 processor is a step in the right direction with a smart way to combine the power of AMD processor with excellent design and security. The laptop’s memory is upgradable. If additional memory is needed, we can add it by moving the metal cover, which will expose memory game slots.
The laptop consists of stereo speakers, which are on the bottom. There’s one on the left and another on the right. The speakers are great but are not super loud. If a broader range of sound is needed, you can use a pair of headphones or Bluetooth headphones.
Lenovo Flex 14 has a 52.5-watt-hour battery, and the battery life on this is pretty good that it has 8 hours range using an intelligent cooling profile before needing to charge.
