If you need a powerful computer, there’s no need to spend $1,500 on a MacBook Pro or a Dell XPS 13. Lenovo’s IdeaPad Flex 5 will get the job done almost as well for $649.
The Flex 5 has a 14-inch full HD touch screen, an AMD Ryzen 4500U processor (which is pretty good), along with 16GB RAM and 256GB SSD. That’s enough for all your work apps, Adobe apps, and even some light gaming.
The Flex is a two-in-one convertible laptop that you can use as a tablet, and even stand up like a tent to watch movies. It also comes with a digital pen that will help you take notes or draw on the screen.
