FHD IPS at this price is a steal deal !
by Omkarnath Phatak on 2014-11-06
Just received this earlier today, thanks flipkart for excellent service as always !
Few things that matter:
1] This particular model - 59-429729 - has a Full HD IPS panel with touch.
Full HD as in 1080p (1920x1080).
Just above it says 1366x768 but don't worry, this is indeed a FHD display.
2] Keyboard layout is exactly what I wanted so I am happy with it but its going to be a pain for big size palms. It will take some time to get used to.
Keyboard is backlit.
3] Ubuntu 14.04 is up and running fine :) (I installed it, laptop has windows 8.1)
1 star is missing from my ratings because of less RAM, could use 8GB be default, wouldn't mind paying for it :-)
Lenovo redemption offer seems to be100% fake
by Abhijit Sil on 2015-01-23
Flipkart : Please publish this
Its almost 2 months now that I had bought this Laptop. I had also paid the additional 999 for the smartphone offer redemption. I haven't heard anything from them since the last 20-25 days. The only thing that was provided to me was the additional 2 yrs warranty and that's it. I still can't believe that a big name like Lenovo is playing this kind of cheating games with the customers. The phone numbers provided for the phone offer has stopped working since the day Lenovo has discontinued this offer also the email addresses does not give any response. The store I bought is a Lenovo store in Civil Lines area Gurgaon, when I went to them they simply said their job is to sell these Laptops and not entertain customers, for any issues we need to get in touch with Lenovo Customer Care, which again redirects the owner to someone else. I feel its a scam and I have fallen prey to it.
For the Laptop rest all is good after 2 months of usage, but the touch and the keyboard are the pain points here. They are getting bad everyday and doesn't seem to match up with the otherwise high standards of the Laptop.
I have recently bought this product on Jan 21 though not from Flipkart but from a Lenovo exclusive store at a very competitive price. I had actually visited the shop with Z50-70 Laptop strongly in my mind but once I saw a demo of Flex 2, both me and my wife had fallen in love with this device. It looks super light at less than 2kg but is extremely powerful in terms of the configuration.
1. A 14" FHD IPS display with such eye catching resolution can instantly rule your heart even before it starts to perform its core functionality.
2. 8 GB SSD along with 500 GB HDD makes it lightning fast while it boots up.
3. Every bit of 4 GB DDR3 RAM outperforms each other while you work in the Ultrabook.
4. 4th Gen Ci5 it works as smooth as butter; as of now no lag no wait time.
5. Win 8.1 seems amusing to me since I am pretty new to this genre of mobile OS.
6. Have not pushed the abilities of the 2GB N-Vidia yet but I have a gut feeling that it will be a winner too in this kind of supporting configuration.
7. Touch is slightly short of being extremely good but that should be an open item for a longer run. I am hoping that it will stay same in the future too.
8. The winner amongst all of these items is though the free 3 years warranty along with this Ultrabook, infact that is the game changer where most other companies available don't prefer to provide the same.
The touchpad seemed a bit hard though as of now but I am assuming it to be better in the near future.
8GB RAM could be made a standard in this product.
Apps provided are not out of the world, though I shouldn't call them hopeless but I am still to find any use in practical world as most of them are application dependent.
Backpack provided is strictly okay and won't be very comfortable for tall people.
Other freebies like dongle and a smartphone at a reasonable cost is okay and makes the overall deal pretty attractive and complete.
Overall my final verdict for this would be : Once you buy this you would definitely feel proud to own such a machine which is a powerhouse wrapped in a beautiful ultrabook look.

As usual Flipkart delivery was good. When i started the laptop for the first time..some how it was slow while browsing and the HD quality which is not upto the mark. I raised the same issue with Flipkart customer support. They tried to convince me that there shouldn't be any issue as such and provided steps to resolving the slowness. However after resetting the machine, it is working cool with out any issue. I also upgraded RAM with additional 8GB memory.
Now i can even install VM's for hadoop training and it is working good.
however the full HD quality is not that great.
by Ankur Sharma on 2014-11-21
Bought this product from Flipkart. Got it a day before the expected delivery date. The product is good and stable, touch is nice as well, picture quality is brilliant. It start up and shut down time is extremely low, though I have not installed anything major on it yet.
The battery charges very quick and battery back up is great as well.
Lenovo Peace of Mind offer fake
by Jeswin Jose on 2015-03-03
I had bought Lenovo Flex2 14 laptop one month back, I was informed by Lenovo that I will be eligible for Peace of mind offer, by giving extra 999/- Rs I will get Lenovo Mobile Rockstar. I had made payment and received confirmation from Lenovo. They told they will ship the mobile with 3-4 working days. Now I am waiting for one month till now i did not receive the product. The special customer care for this offer is not picking up the phone, and not responding to any mails.
by anup baska on 2015-10-14
At first look, it will look great. But when you will use it, you will realize that the keyboard and touchpad sucks. It will be very dificult to get used to the same. Also, battery life is very poor. Hardly gives backup for 2 hours. Also I paid INR 2000 extra under BTC offer for 2 year extended warranty. However, its been 2 month and there is no reply from lenovo even after writing umpteen mails. Also nobody picks up at the phone numbers provided. After reading few reviews, just realized that many others also have been fooled by this cheater company.
Not as great as I expected
by shri on 2015-04-03
I do not know why, but the piece I received, heats up a lot, hangs for reason at times and so far within 20 days, the sound stopped working two times unexpectedly, which only started working again after restart!
I am really sad with this, I was so excited about this laptop considering the reviews regarding no heating and blah blah.. but no good for me! :(
Have applied for a return.
Satisfied with flipkart's delivery performance so far. However, I am now waiting for their pickup call and hoping the new piece that they deliver in return of the current will not have these issues.
Will come back with a review if the new piece given satisfies what it boasts of.
by pradeep kumar tyagi on 2014-10-13
the first awesome thing i like about this notebook is its display... i getting perfect feel when ever i watch a movie or any video in 1080p.. it is just awesome, the config of this notebook take everything i throw at it.. movies, downloads, games,and multitasking,
Absence of optical drive is worst part
by Anil Gaur on 2015-01-24
Just got this laptop from flipkart and found that this particular laptop does not have any optical drive (cd/dvd writer slot).
This point may be useful for the new buyers of this model.
by Rahul Yadav on 2015-01-13

Well its not a bad laptop. 1
by chris sunny on 2015-02-16
Well i purchased this from Nehru place (N.Delhi) for 48k.Well its not a bad laptop.
1.Fast i5 Even though ultra low voltage its reasonably fast to easily render through solidworks.
2.Battery life i am getting nearly 4.5Hrs avg on ubuntu 14.1 (with Powertop and TLP installed ),windows i dont use much but i think it will squeeze around 3.5hrs
3.Planning to upgrade to a 128gb + 8gb ram soon enough,i think this should add another hour or so to the battery life.
4.Build Well not as sturdy as i was expecting it to be.
5.Keyboard has a bit of flex (i sort of fixed it by placing the silicon keyboard covering below the keyboard "at your own risk")
6.Backlit keyboard and 1080p Display makes it standout in the crowd.
7.Heat and sound is almost nil.
8.Form factor could have been a littile smaller (its larger than 14 inch laptops because of the bigger bezel)
MacBook Pro (if you dont mind the subpar display and lack of graphic card)
MacBook Air (Advantage being the weight)
Yoga 2 13 (advantage weight and form factor)
Dell Inspiron 7000 Series
OR wait for the new Dell XPS 13 its a bang for the buck.
The basis of my decision was
2) Battery Life
4) Build Quality ,Feel and asthetics
5) Raw Processing power
I am giving this a 4/5 because of the flex in the keyboard and because i didint really like the design of the hinge
Really good in look and performance
by JINESH on 2015-07-12
Really good in look and performance, battery max 4.30hrs only, not 6 hrs as in the advertisement. the seller must mention in the details that this model doesn't have CD/DVD-RW ( i searched without drive /writer only)
Excellent mix of power and portability
by DKP on 2015-07-07
Been using the laptop for the past 3-4 months. For the price this is an excellent laptop, currently running a Windows 8.1 and Ubuntu 14.04 dual boot. Works perfectly.
1. Full HD display (seriously they need to stop making laptops with anything lesser than that)
2. Good keyboard, tactile feedback. Does bend slightly when pressed against (not a deal-breaker at all)
3. Moderately light, nowhere near pure Ultrabook levels, but still decent.
4. Good processor, I do loads of programming work(and some light gaming) and it's been keeping up very well.
5. Touch(and associated features) work well, the screen is responsive
6. The backlight keyboard is beautiful and extremely functional, Extremely useful for gaming at night ;)
1. Plastic cover is extremely prone to scratches, Lenovo should have opted for a matte finish
2. While using the touchscreen the screen has the tendency to bend back a bit, making the touch fell rather dissatisfying
3. Only 1 USB 3.0 port (and 2 USB 2.0), it should have been the other way around
4. Battery life is average
5. Using the touchscreen makes it dirty extremely fast (probably due to the lack of an oleophobic coating)
Overall, this laptop is an excellent mix of power and portability.
Update: Do check out the Dell XPS 13 too
by Nitin Sharma on 2015-07-09
I banged the deal at 40K. I liked the product. As of now its Performance is excellent. It boots up in seconds. Overall battery backup is about 3.5 hours.
Touch is excellent. Although they show 1366-720 P in their specification but it is Full HD (1920-1080 P). Highly Recommended
Good product for 45k Budget
by HKashyap on 2015-09-23
Very good laptop for its price(I got it for 43 k)
Full HD screen(1920X1080 pixels),very good for watching movies, images.
Nvidia 820 m 2GB DDR3 graphics card that plays most 1, 2 year old pc games in low settings (do not expect high end games to be played in low setting, they WILL NOT, for example, Witcher 3 won't get played at all).
Volume is loud and clear
Due to 8 GB of SSD, booting is fast, shutting down is fast.
Overall looks good
Backlit keyboard lighting is excellent, press and hold Fn key and press Space key once to light up the keyboard in low light, press and hold Fn key and press Space key twice to light up the keyboard at max in full dark. Press again to switch off the lighting.
This machine can be used in laptop mode and stand mode as well
Extremely reflective screen, impossible to watch or read on the screen under direct day light on the screen.
Battery backup is just OK, 3 and half hours average backup on balance mode.
keyboard keys are small and nasty to use, a few keys get pressed twice automatically even though you press just once. I replaced the keyboard and the problem persisted. As a result, you will end up correcting what you type.And be rest assured that there was no software , drivers,virus or liquid issues involved when I am sharing the keyboard experience. I googled and found many people facing the same issues with the keyboard.
Overall, a good laptop for its price, you will not be disappointed if you are to choose a new laptop at below 45 k budget as you will not get a better choice than this at that price bracket.
The best laptop in its price range
by ravikiran putta on 2015-08-11
The Best about this laptop is its terrific FULL HD screen even though it looks bit glossy.Movie watching is terrific experience.Build quality is typical Lenovo. The laptop is pretty fast especially after installation of Windows 10.The major draw back for the laptop is its track pad.It is very smooth and quite hard to move around but touch screen will compensate for it.One more thing the speakers volume is quite low when you put it in stand mode.But there is serious problem with Lenovo on its BTC offer.I ordered for bluetooth speaker and also paid 500 rupees for the offer.Its been one month they haven't responded back.
by Aditya on 2015-07-08
pros: no heating issue. dual mode touch screen with 1920x1080 resolution. i recommend for a higher ram 4 gigs is just ok these days
cons: unecessary lenovo built in software eat up memory, display could have been better and touch screen is above average sometimes fingers stick to the glass otherwise a good option
overall a good product. please go for it if ur budget is around 40-50K.
Great Product, absolutely suggested
by Swati K on 2015-08-08
