More and more convertible laptops are present on the market nowadays, but one of the most interesting models we’ve seen lately comes from Lenovo. The Flex 3 80R40006US has a 360 flip-and-fold design, so you can use it in various modes.
Besides this, it has a more than decent spec sheet, able to deal with some of the most demanding tasks and even some casual gaming, if you want to test its real powers.
It’s using a 6th Gen Intel Core i7-6500U mobile processor, running at 2.5 GHz and with the possibility of increasing the clock speed, thanks to the Turbo Boost Technology, specific to Intel chips. The CPU is aided by 8 GB of DDR3L RAM, enough for smoothly running all your applications, as well as keeping multiple programs and browser tabs open at once.
In terms of graphics, the Lenovo Flex 3 80R40006US is relying on an Intel HD Graphic chip, with shared video memory. It’s not top notch, but it can easily deal with daily activities and provide good image quality.
The storage capacity counts 1 TB, thanks to a hard disk drive. It’s enough for storing all your files, including music, photos, games and high-quality movies.
If you like to work using a mouse, you can add one using one of the three USB ports (2 x 3.0 and 1 x 2.0). The laptop also comes with a built-in media reader, supporting SD, SDHC, SDXC and MMC card formats, for quick photo transfer.
Moving on to the connectivity suite, the laptop has next-gen wireless and Fast Ethernet LAN, for quick Web access, while the Bluetooth 4.0 interface syncs with compatible devices, like smartphones or tablets, for easy file transfer. Finally, the HDMI output expands your viewing options, allowing you to connect the laptop to a bigger display.
The Lenovo Flex 3 80R40006US features a 15.6″ energy-efficient LED-backlit 15.6″ 10-point multitouch display, with a full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. The images are clear and vivid, so you can use it to watch your favorite movies in great conditions. As for the sound department, the laptop is equipped with a pair of built-in 1.5W stereo speakers, using the Dolby Home Theater technology, delivering powerful audio.
Above, it has a built-in camera, delivering HD images, so you can chat with your family or friends.
Design-wise, the laptop is a relatively light model, measuring 0.87″ in thickness and weighing 4.83 lbs. The flip-and-fold design, with a 360-degrees hinge, allows you to use it in four different modes: laptop, tablet, tent and stand, for improved portability.
The Lenovo Flex 3 80R40006US is available for $749.99, with a pre-installed copy of Microsoft Windows 10 and a bundle of software, including Microsoft Office.
It’s far from being a cheap laptop, but considering its special design and the more than decent spec sheet, it’s definitely worth the investment, especially if you’re looking for a daily laptop.
