Lenovo Notebook Flex 15(59401417) 15.6" Intel Core i5 4200U (1.60GHz) 500GB SSHD

The Lenovo Flex 15 touchscreen notebook with an Intel Core i5 starts at $749 on Lenovo.com, but Newegg has a deal for this laptop for $599 via their eBay store.  This particular model has the following specs:

  • Processor: Intel Core i5 4200U (1.60GHz)
  • Memory: 8GB Memory 500GB HDD
  • Graphics: Intel HD Graphics 4400
  • Touchscreen Display with 1366 x 768 resolution
  • OS: Windows 8
  • Weight: 5.1lbs
  • 15.04″ x 10.7″ x 0.87″
  • This same laptop is on the Newegg.com site for $729.99 so by going via the Newegg eBay store you save $130.  The Flex 15 is much like the Yoga hybrid laptop that folds down into a tablet.  However, it’s more budget oriented and has a lower resolution screen and thicker overall profile.  It’s not a true tablet, it simply has a screen that folds 300-degrees so it can be used in different positions and put in stand mode.


    The screen resolution of 1366 x 768 is admittedly low for a 15” screen notebook, but the touchscreen feature and Intel Core i5 4th generation processor pick up some of the slack in the specs department and therefore make this $599 price a decent deal.
