Average Total Storage Capacity

The Lenovo Flex has a pretty typical total storage capacity (500 gigabytes) compared to most of the other notebook PCs that have been available for a comparable time to the Flex.

We compared this notebook PC to all the other 500GB total storage capacity laptops and we think the FLEX 15, and the Yoga both from Lenovo which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If this portable PC total storage capacity is not big enough for you then you might want to consider the HP Pavilion x360 (1TB) which is also cheaper.
