With a screen size of only 10.1 inches, the Lenovo Flex has a quite small screen size compared to most of the other comparable spec portable PCs that are a similar age to the Flex.

Read more Less Chart Edit

An SSD storage medium is the best storage medium across comparable types of laptop.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other portable PCs that have an HDD storage media currently available including a cheaper laptop such as the Pavilion x360, or the ENVY x360 ($1,349.98) both from HP or you might consider a higher scoring laptop such as the Lenovo Yoga 2 11.
