Does Not Have a Full-Size Keyboard

The Lenovo 14 does not have a full-size keyboard, although keep in mind that most of the other 2 in 1 laptops that have been available for more than two years also do not have a full-size keyboard.

We compared all the other laptops which also have a full-size keyboard to this laptop and we think the Helix[pl_3098781_price], or the Helix[pl_3098834_price] both from Lenovo or the HP Pro X2 612 F1P90EA[plb_2531014_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

An HDD storage medium is actually the worst storage medium across all notebook PCs of a comparable age and spec to the 14.

Across similar types of portable PC the best storage medium is SSD.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other portable PCs that have an HDD storage media currently available including the Flex 14[pl_2279150_price], or the Flex 2[pl_2540216_price] both from Lenovo or the HP ENVY x360[plb_2499460_price] which has better reviews.

If you are looking for a portable PC with a better storage medium then you might want to consider the Yoga 11S[pl_2393757_price] (SSD), or the Yoga[pl_2430247_price] (SSD) both from Lenovo or the Toshiba Satellite U920t[plb_1449405_price] (SSD) which is also higher rated.

Notebook PCs with a faster processor clock speed that might also be worth considering include the Helix[pl_3098781_price] (1.8GHz), or the Yoga[pl_2702765_price] (2.3GHz) both from Lenovo or the HP Pavilion x360 11-n011dx[plb_2634591_price] (2.166GHz) which is also higher rated.
