Lenovo Flex 5 Chromebook review: midrange done right The Flex 5 is built for its price range

The Lenovo Flex 5 Chromebook is a pretty dang good deal with budget under $400.

You get Intel’s capable 10th Gen processors, a sturdy and nice-looking chassis, a touchscreen with stylus support, a comfortable backlit keyboard, and a satisfactory port selection.

While there’s no standout feature to enthusiastically praise, there’s not too much to complain about.

That’s enough, of course, to make the Flex 5 one of the best midrange Chromebooks you can buy — as long as you’re aware of the tradeoffs you’re making for the price.

First, the good. The Flex 5 has a much nicer chassis than many other Chromebooks you’ll see in this price range — it’s actually one of the better-built Chromebooks I’ve used this year.

Though the bottom is made of plastic, it’s far from the cheap-looking fare that’s commonplace among budget laptops. (No huge plastic bezels around the screen either.)

The keyboard deck has a soft-touch texture that’s quite smooth and doesn’t pick up a ton of fingerprints despite its dark color.

As a consequence, the device looks a lot better than your average laptop-cart Chromebook.

It certainly looks more modern than Acer’s $699 Chromebook Spin 713, our current pick for the best Chromebook. And I wasn’t at all worried about jostles and jolts — there was no flex in the screen and very little in the keyboard.

In addition to the solid build, the Flex 5 has a reasonable port selection including two USB 3.1 Type-C Gen 1, one USB 3.1 Type-A Gen 1, a combo audio jack, a microSD reader, and a Kensington lock. Bonus points: there’s a USB-C port on each side for convenient charging.

It is, however, a bit on the large side as 13-inch Chromebooks go, at 0.7 inches thick and a weight just under three pounds. (It’s just slightly lighter than the Spin 713.)

That makes it a bit heavy to hold as a tablet for long periods of time, and you’ll want something smaller if you’re looking for a device you won’t notice in your backpack. Still, it’s quite portable, and far from anything I’d describe as heavy.
