When I first had a look at the Flex 3 14 inch, it looked a normal laptop to me. But then I observed that it is a Detachable 2 in 1 device, meaning that its keyboard can be detached from the main system, thus making it a fully featured tablet cum laptop. Also, the light weight system is portable and makes the design look sleek.

Adding more to the design, it looks really nice and beautiful with its slim body structure and clean cuts. Measuring at just 0.85 inches as far as thinness is concerned, the laptop is really sleek. What I actually liked the most about this device is its ability to convert, which is not only mesmerizing but useful as well. You can simply work in your car or lie down in bed, making its use easy and simple.

Now taking a look at the features, it has 360 degree flexibility, so whether you want to give any presentation, watch a movie or work, this Lenovo Flex 3 1480 can handle everything without any fuss. The touch screen flips to 360 degrees and you can then use it for various modes, from tablet to laptop or from stand to tent.

Another feature of the Lenovo Flex 3 is its amazing full HD picture. So, you can enjoy the extreme close ups to minute details. Its 14 inches full HD screen offers vivid colours and clear graphics with viewing angles. What more, you will notice that this laptop doesn’t just stop at 2 modes. It can flip so that it gives you 4 options of tablet, laptop, stand and tent. In my opinion, I can say that it is surely an affordable option when it comes to powering your media from various angles.

Lenovo Flex 3 1480 Signature Edition 2 in 1 PC can also store about 1000 GB on its hard disk. I can say that hard drives are actually not costly to produce and have larger capacity however they access the data a bit slower than the modern day storage devices. So, if your PC has fast processor and a lot of RAM, then the processes may run slow with slower hard drive.

  • I would say that the 2 in 1 PC comes with many pros like Intel Core i7, 8 GB memory, 8 hours battery life and 14 inches full HD touch screen. Fast performance and big storage are the other benefits that you enjoy with this laptop. 1TB hard drive is there that gives you plenty of space for videos, music, movies and photos and the 8GB memory makes certain that you get high speed for multitasking.

  • The downfall for the laptop, according to my knowledge is its battery. At just 6-7 hours, it becomes somewhat unimpressive and average. What is not appealing is the fact that you have to charge the device while doing your work. I have faced it so I can say that “been there, done that!”

Durability and Security

Lenovo Flex 3 is light in weight and even thin. So it can be said that it is ultra portable. On holding it, the laptop seemed to be durable.


Lenovo Flex 3 1480’s keyboard is backlit that helps to work even during the dark. The backlit keyboard looks nice and attractive.

Display and Audio

Talking about this, there is Dolby Audio that offers amazing sound quality. Even the screen of the laptop is featured with nice picture quality at 1080p and is thus nice for entertainment.

Ports and Webcam

With its integrated webcam, the laptop is good for entertainment. With its 2 USB 3.0 ports, you can also take benefit of faster data transfers.

Lenovo Flex 3 1480-6


Performance wise, this 2 in 1 PC is nice with Intel core i7 processor. Faster and powerful, this 6th generation ore i7 offers high data transfer rate, amazing visuals and much more.


Blistering the NVIDIA graphics, NVIDIA GeForce 940M graphics offers fast and smooth performance for latest fames.

Battery Life

With 6 to 7 hours between chares, this laptop keeps pace on the long days of continuous work in office or campus. The battery is decent but not that great. It could have been better to make the laptop even more attractive.

Apart from its so-so battery, with the addition of Windows 8.1, there is one more reason to not like the laptop. Not just is it not simple to use, it needs results and efforts in major loss of time doing the same. And so I personally don’t like the feature much.

So, in all this was my review of the Lenovo Flex 3 1480 Signature Edition 2 in 1 PC. As per our knowledge, this is a decent laptop to buy if you are not much concerned about battery life. According to me, what is most liked is its Dolby Audio that offers very nice sound quality. For a music lover like me, this is a kind of complete package.
