And I thought the netbook was dead. And I thought the netbook was dead.
SummaryFlex 10 is a portable computer for simple tasks...

that if price is not such a concern. This, on the other hand, has the potential to make you feel like using a Atom-powered netboook. But the week or so we used the Flex 10 was uneventful.

You can easily use the Flex 10 more most regular functionalities. I thought it would make a good computer for children and teenagers, who dont need high processing powers. I would not mind gifting one to my mother either, because this has a good 720p webcam which is the most crucial feature for our Skype-dependent parents. However, you will not be successful in run resource-hogging applicaitons like Photoshop on the Flex 10. Plus, the battery also leave a bit to be desired. Lenovo should have tried to give it 10 hours juice. Right now it can give only a maximum of 8.

Should you buy it?

If you are looking for a portable computer for simple tasks like browing, responding to emails and chatting, like you would have with a netbook, then the Flex 10 is a good option. For those who want to save a bit more the Android-based A10 might make more sense.

Price: Rs 26,000
