Dual-Mode Notebook — Switch Between Laptop and Stand Modes
When you're relying heavily on the keyboard — drafting documents or working on a spreadsheet, for example — keep your Flex 2 in the classic laptop mode for maximum productivity. But when you’re focusing on touch applications, web chatting, or enjoying a film or video, flip the screen 300 degrees to enter stand mode. The Flex 2's unique design means it adapts to whatever you choose to Do.

10-Point Multitouch Display
Interact with your Flex 2 by using simple, intuitive gestures directly on the 15.6" 10-point multitouch display — optimized for Windows 8.1.

Long Battery Life
With up to 6 hours' battery life between charges, the Flex 2 is an ideal companion for users on the go. Lenovo Energy Management protects the long-term durability of the battery and uses advanced energy-saving technology to increase time spent between charges.

Thin and Light for Doers on the Go
Thin and light laptops usually bear a hefty price tag, but the affordable Flex 2 is only 1.0" thick and weighs in at just 5.1 lbs.

Backlit AccuType Keyboard
The acclaimed AccuType keyboard is ergonomically designed to make typing more comfortable and to reduce errors. And, with backlit keys, you'll enjoy ease of use even in low-light conditions.

Stereo Speakers With Dolby® Advanced Audio™
The Flex 2's speakers deliver rich stereo sound, while Dolby Advanced Audio provides an immersive audio experience, enhances audio quality, and reduces distortion.

Multitouch Touchpad
Optimized for Windows 8.1, the intuitive, easy-to-use touchpad features simple scroll, zoom, and rotate functions

Excellent price. We own a Medion version of this laptop (Lenovo components throughout) and have been v.impressed with it thus far.

One thing to note. Crucial SSD's do not work in this laptop. The Samsung Evo 850's definitely do though. It's a bit of a fiddle to get the back cover off - but well worth it for the dramatic improvements they bring.

Seems pretty good deal to me, although i am no expert.

does this have Ann ips screen?

That's a Laptop Direct service for any laptop - not related to buying this. Pretty sure you wouldn't get the best rate...

probably just about handle it in low resolution and detail, I have the gt540 in my xps 15 which manages to play most things, as long as you don't care how it looks!

Seems pretty good especially with 1080 screen.

Although the one you've linked to is the Pro, all round better laptop than the normal flex 2.

Fantastic price for a full HD touchscreen laptop with backlit keyboard.

Don't think this model this has a backlit keyboard only the pro ?

It says backlit keyboard in the description, but may be a mistake. Wouldn't really expect one at this price so you may be right.

I have the pro version of this and while the touch pad was annoying when first using it. I think you get used to it eventually as it doesnt bother me now.

One of the best deals I've seen on here. Kicking myself for not getting it. It's was the touch pad that stopped me.

Was too late to the party on this.

Does it or does it not have the back lit keyboard then, and what are the touch pad issues? (for future reference)

This review suggests the screen is backlit.

Dont want to disappoint people that bought this but i'm sure this is a refurbished laptop the model number has A1 at the front thats a refub ?

nooooooooooooo!!!! i was just looking at laptops on amazon/ebay
