Item number: 4MTXA

The Versatile Lenovo Flex 2-14 Switches Between A Laptop And Tablet In Seconds To Suit Whatever You're Doing.
When you want to enjoy the tablet experience of using the 14 inch touch screen to touch and swipe your way through all the user-friendly Windows 8.1 menus or to watch a video, just push the keyboard round so it either serves as a stand giving you the ideal viewing angle.

An Intel™ Core® i3 processor and 6Gb RAM can handle multitasking, gaming and downloads, as well as all your regular everyday computing tasks. A large 1Tb (1000Gb) hard drive gives you storage space for up to 280,000 digital photos, 250,000 MP3s, 440 hours of DVD standard video or 120 hours of HD video.

Use the drop down menu above to add optional Microsoft Office 365, including Word, Excel PowerPoint, OneNote and the ability to share documents across devices.

Voice Assistant & Touch: Today's PC experience is completely new with computers that can respond to your touch and listen to your voice. With a new full-powered PC, you can enjoy the fun of touch and voice with sacrificing performance.

Not sure why the cold votes, looks like a solid buy to me, Corei3, 6gb Ram for £329 from a solid laptop manufacturer. I'd buy it if I had the wonga
#2
Is this worth the £70 more than a cheap celeron laptop with 2gb ram?
#3
Anything is worth £70 more than a Celeron processor!!! This is a great deal for the money. Tempted myself, but don't need one and don't have the money for it either!
#4
Ok, so I would say bearing in mind a lower spec model of this is in argos for £400, and compatible model is £450 in pc world/currys.
#5
I've just ordered one!

Needed new laptop, hope it's all it should be!

And 12 months buy now pay later
#6
Ordered one tonight, should be here Thursday. Lack of DVD drive is a shame but spotted a slim external Samsung on Amazon for £17.61...bargain (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Samsung-Slim-DVD-Writer-Red/dp/B00MAG2GSG/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top)

Be careful of which one they actually ship to you. Sis had ordered a Yoga tablet (the old one) and they actually shipped her the Yoga 2 new version! Worked in her favour although be careful you don't get shipped the Celeron one in this case! The boxes almost look identical as they do also for this laptop.

Thanks for the tip. Will double check the box
#9
Same here.

Glad someone else took the chance and got one too.

I must say I've always found very to be superb to deal with and often have good prices
#10
Seems alright considering its touch screen but not really a 2 in 1 when the screen isn't detachable from the keyboard.

Just unpacked it, but bit of a query...

When you press shift to get an @ sign instead of ' it doesn't come up with the @ sign.

Is there a different button I need to press?

Cheers

Just an update.

1)windows 8.1 is great when you get used to it. The touchscreen is a great feature and integrated seamlessly with normal keyboard

2)design of the laptop is functional and seems great quality though nothing 'fancy'

3)build quality and speed of laptop in general seem great based on limited use, but I have no reason to suspect there would be an issue

Bearing in mind the amount of laptops at £250-£350 which are slow processors or have major flaws I think this one is a bargain from a reputable manufacturer
#13
Should get mine tomorrow all being well. For the @ key might be worth checking the keyboard is set to the correct country/layout in settings?
What's the screen like? Good quality?
#14
I went for red by the way!

Try Shift+2 if it comes with @ sign - your keyboard is most likely set to US layout.

Screen seems pretty good, touch side anyway. Tis really easy to use and well executed.

It's full HD aa well so that's always good. I got ms office with mine as it was easier. I went for black as I wasn't that bothered by colour BUT I wasn't going to pay £30 extra for red!

That is not right. I have just bought Flex 2 14 from PCWorld, but for around £450 you get the much superior version (FullHD screen - 1920x1080 IPS and an i5 processor). Cheaper I3 model was around £330, but had a poor 1366x768 screen. Bear in mind O2 priority discount codes bring the price down by another 10% or so.

I wish there was a "FHD / i3 / 4GB RAM / chepest HDD" version that sells well below £400. That would be the "perfect all rounder" once upgraded with an SSD.

It is worth mentioning getting to the laptop's hard drive, RAM or wireless/bluetooth card requires taking the whole laptop appart. It's certainly not a 30 seconds job with a small phillips screwdriver... There is a video showing the exact process: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=42P6RG4a5EU. Worth noting there is a screw under a sticker underneath the keyboard so you need to be very careful lifting it up if you want to retain the warranty (I'm assuming Lenovo would question if the sticker is damaged). Don't worry if your keyboard has only one (larger) connector, the other one (smaller) is for the keyboard backlight and majority of models sold in the UK don't have that option.

No, I seriously doubt your laptop has a Full HD screen (IPS). Price and specs on Very site indicates just a regular HD (1366x768). The difference in quality is massive and justifies the significant hike in price.
#19
Mine has the following features

1080 screen
Backlit keyboard

http://www.argos.co.uk/m/static/Product/partNumber/2559298/searchTerm/Flex+2.htm

So it definitely is HD, the model in argos at £349 on the following link
But it only has 4gb ram (mine has 6) and 500gb hard drive (mine has 1tb)
#20
Red didn't cost anymore, it was £329.

There is no direct comparison on pcworld. They're either a lower spec for more money or a higher spec (e.g i5). Either way very happy with what I've ordered!
#21
http://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/search-keywords/xx_xx_xx_xx_xx/flex+2+14/xx-criteria.html

Just been onto currys/pc world and these are the 4 models they do. The i5 is much more and given the features of mine it is better value than any of he others as for £329 you get laptop only, or £389 with office 365.
#22
I ordered mine with office £365

When I put it into basket it came up at £419 for red
#23
On my product sticker on box it says

14" HD LED TS
LENOVO FLEX 2-14
MODEL NAME 20404

Which model is this, as its confusing

I also had a sticker on side of screen saying 1920 x 1080
#24
Strange. Have you checked the processor, hdd & ram under system properties?
#25
Not yet but will do I'm having trouble finding out if I do have the ips HD model, HOPE SO, maybe you will too!
#26
Fingers crossed! Let me know when you check specs, cheers!
#27
1920x1080 would suggest full hd

#28
Can't seem to get backlit keys to work that's only thing not sure of
#29
Lenovo have confirmed despite saying HD ON BOX IT ISNT.

As display settings on allow 1366 x 768

But that doesn't bother me greatly as its still better spec than argos at £349.99 and PC world models at similar price. And neither have office included.

So it is a good deal IMO
#30
Let me know when you get yours, hope you're happy as I am!
#31
Loving it so far! Screen is good, nice & clear. Processor is a slightly higher spec (4030u 1.9GHz vs 4010u 1.7GHz advertised). Screen is 1366x768 which is fine, I certainly wouldn't say it's worth all that extra for 1080p!
Windows 8.1 is taking some getting used to though lol.
Its looks great in red by the way!
1 Like #32
Oh yes, it is certainly worth the extra to get the 1080p IPS panel!
#33
I would have to say I'm happy with what I have given the deal I got and the price difference.

I don't play games/watch movies on laptop and have a FULL HD TV, so no need for the same on a laptop.

Glad you're happy! I've had nothing but good things to say about very and their customer service.

Any ideas where to get a decent low cost warranty for after the manufacturer warranty ends?
#34
Mine is also the 4030u spec!
Happy Days!
#35
Afraid not...it's only a one year warranty but I'd not considered extending. Surely sales of goods act would mean it should last more than a year?
#36
It captaincy should last more than a year, we shall see I guess.
#37
Finally decided to go for this myself. Opted for the red one though and purchased the red Samsung external DVD drive from Amazon for £23.50 thanks to someone who mentioned it on here - sorry cant find the comment.

The red one wasn't giving me the option of adding office 365 last night so I went for the university one on Amazon for £53 which lasts for 4 years (subjection to qualifying student status).

If you're a student, it might be worth checking with your University whether they offer free office 365 for the duration of your study

do you have the link for the pc world variant? and does your laptop definitely come wiht HD IPS and i5, and perhaps backlit keyboard?

I'm just using mine for general downloading music etc.

It literally is F1 speed compared to my old 7 year toshiba, which has served me well.

My mate works with computers and conference management and has a lenovo himself, swears by them and says I got a great deal.

That's enough for me!!!
