For $299.99, the discounted Lenovo Flex 5i Chromebook is a steal for anyone with a budget under $300
Overall, the HP Chromebook x360 14c is a solid Chromebook. If it’s the right one for you, based on my review I’d wait for a sale though. $659 is a bit too much.
I have the 2021 HP Chromebook x360 14c on loan to change and my first impressions are very favorable. This has an 11th-gen Intel Core i3, 8 GB of memory, 128 GB of SSD storage and 14-inch screen in a 13.3-inch chassis.
Currently discounted to $449.99, Lenovo’s Core i3 Chromebook Flex 5i is only $10 more than the Pentium powered clamshell. You can’t go wrong either way but there are some compromises in the Flex model.
My Lenovo Flex 5i Chromebook review: A solid device with great performance, a workday’s worth of battery life, and a nice combination of display, ports, keyboard, and trackpad.
The Lenovo Chromebook Flex 5i with an 11th-gen Core i3 is similar to the IdeaPad 5i that recently impressed me. Besides being a 2-in-1, you get a better CPU for less with a current discount.
