Picked one of these up new from the Lenovo outlet for $385. Nice laptop, only complaint is fairly short battery life.

I've been checking the outlet 2-3 times a day since you posted you got one for $385 back in August and they never even have this for sale at the outlet.

What's the battery life you're getting?

I don't personally use it, it was for a friend's college student. She says about 3-4 hours is common, but sometimes less. Not sure if she has the brightness cranked up on it or not. The one I got was just luck it would seem with the outlet, and they haven't restocked much of anything for weeks.

The person that picked this up for $385 that was probably an i3 cpu not the i5. They look the same on the outside.

Tip: when buying a lenovo laptop, use a credit card that gives you an extra year of warranty, and document the credit card offer on paper with contact number + save your receipt carefully. I did, and I was able to get my money back after 18 months (after 2 in warranty returns). Not that I think HP or Dell make better laptops, its just that these other makers have lasted longer for me repeatedly, while my single Lenovo died early.

any reason to get flex 5 over flex 4? flex 5 may have newer cpu and fingerprint hardware, but comparable flex 4 model at eb@y is $200 less with no sales tax.

If you're looking for overall speed improvement (multi-tasking) at overall lower power consumption, you can't really beat the new 8250u.

you can check the CPUmark against the i5-7300HQ, I would pick the 8th Gen would be more "futureproof" for 4 years.

This is great with the 14 inch screen. Both models you mentioned have what you need, but I would think a 15 or 17 inch display would be better when using engineering programs that require a lot of space on the screen.

Alternatively you could connect any machine to a large display with an HDMI cable. Smilie

How does this compare to the Acer Spin 5 [walmart.com]? Both pretty similar, but the Acer comes Wirecutter-recommended. I need something for travel that can handle basic photo/video editing.

Or, if I want to save $50 and shave off some mass, would the Acer Aspire Switch Alpha [newegg.com] be powerful enough?

Thanks!

Picked this up for $580 open box at micro center last week. I wanted active stylus functionality, the spin 5 (US version) doesn't support this. Tried out the Acer Switch 5, the alpha's successor, but I found the pen a bit "sloppier" and prefer the larger 14" display on the Lenovo.

I got the i7 version from Newegg Aug 16 for $750. It's serviceable for what I needed. I did have to send it in for warranty to have the fan repaired. It wasn't shutting off. They had to replace the HDD. Should have returned it to Newegg within the 30 days cause problem was there when I got it.

Since the repair it's been good. Not a homerun by any stretch. For comparison I have a 1st Gen Surface Pro and can't justify upgrading. SSD failed on Asus laptop I had and was compelled to replace it. When I bought mine there was a model priced $100 higher with the fingerprint reader I didn't think was with the extra cash.
