Lenovo is well known for the performance ready devices they put on the market, as well as the top notch quality of the materials they use when crafting a new laptop. If you have $480 to spare, you could net yourself a new Lenovo laptop that would most likely be able to assist you throughout your day.

For some, the harder choice is which Lenovo device to buy, as the manufacturer has a variety of options working their magic and enticing potential customers. Not only through aesthetics, but also hardware, Lenovo products manage to dominate the market and please their target consumers.

Let’s take a look at two laptops that you will most likely run into when researching Lenovo’s catalogue for an eligible model to purchase. On one side we have Lenovo Flex, which is a hybrid device that comes with tablet capabilities as well, and on the other we have the Lenovo IdeaPad 700, a device packed to the brim with tech goodies. Let’s see what the two can offer, in more detail.

Display

There are some differences between the two, but also a lot of similarities. For starters, both laptops feature 15.6 inch full HD displays, although they offer different max resolutions. The Flex can go as high as 1920 x 1080 while Lenovo’s IdeaPad settles for 1366 x 768.



Performance

Lenovo Flex features an Intel Core i7, dual core processing unit clocked at 2.5 GHz. The Max Turbo feature allows it to reach a max overclock speed of 3.10 Ghz. The clockspeed on Lenovo’s IdeaPad 700 is 2.6 GHz with the option of pushing it into overdrive at 3.5 GHz.

The superior numbers are due to the quad core Intel Core i7 processing unit found within the device. The IdeaPad 700 is also superior in terms of RAM and GPU with 16 GB of RAM and an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950M respectively, bearing 4GB of local memory. The laptop’s internal storage capacity is 256 GB, on an SSD.

Lenovo Flex is way behind on some categories, with only 8 GB of RAM and the graphics processing capabilities of an HD Graphics 520 chip. All that combined with an inferior 128 GB SSD make the IdeaPad 700 net superior despite Flex’s better display resolution.

Another crucial  element to take into consideration is the fact that the Flex is a hybrid which can be used as a tablet as well. Some might be willing to sacrifice some technical prowess for the unmatched mobility advantages of a hybrid.
