Lenovo 81CA000CUS reviews

FLEX-5/ i7-8550UU/ 16GB/ 512GB/ 940MX/ Windows 10 Home/ 15.6" is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 236.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super laptop I've had this for a few weeks and I really love it. Im not sure what version it is as mine has i7 U kaby, 4k screen, 2gb graphics, 16 ram and 512 ssd + 1T hdd. Paid a penny under 1 large as it seemed to be a good deal at the time. Res is outrageous and 4k video is spectactular as well as print and images are so darn sharp. Kinda miss ethernet socket. Boot time is just about nothing.....shutdown considerably less. I added Classic shell as I just can't get used to the win 10 start menu. CS changes start menu instantly so it looks and works just like win 7. Free but I was so relieved I made a donation!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No stars if I could This is my 2nd. I returned the 1st after I had driver issues and the touchscreen stopped working. I'm returning this one too - and am writing this review on it - as the last frustrating and time-consuming thing I do with it. This 2in1 is SLOOOW! So slow, my 7yo i3 is faster. It can't even keep up with my typing at times. It's extremely buggy. Sometimes I can sign in via fingerprint - other times I have to use my password. In fact, I can't get to keep any the settings I set. Sometimes when I turn it on the screen is super dark. And yes, I re-boot it constantly. It is a nice size machine, lightweight and durable but Bye-bye.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Features, Average Build Quality Our new 15" Flex 5 has plenty of Ram and Storage to make this a great stand-alone home office PC. Support for pen input would make this a decent creative desktop replacement, except the screen hinge is so flimsy that the pen cannot be used without holding the side of the screen with your hand. Obviously this is way less than ideal and might be considered by some to be a deal breaker. Bottom line is that the Flex 5 almost makes sense if the build quality were stronger, but as it is, its just a mediocre laptop with Ram and an SSD.--just cannot recommend this product with a clear conscience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice, powerful and stable design. Boots Linux! Needed to upgrade my old laptop, but also needed Linux operation for my EDA work. Very fast storage from 512gb evme m.2 drive. Only issue was changing disk mode from software raid to ahci, which required some Win10 restart, but then repartition and dual boot was straight forward with 18.3 Mint. Remarkably everything but fingerprint reader worked perfectly, avoiding legacy bios boot was a plus. Getting 7.6 hour Linux battery life avoiding graphics intensive load. Boots windows to desktop in 4-5 seconds, boots Linux in 1-2, 1 second on login .. Never got warm yet, but have yet to push it hard. Easiest Linux install yet, peripherals are solid choices, given features a genuine bargain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Overall exellence I got this laptop to do schooling, as well as some games. It boots up quickly and seems to multi-task very well. One gripe I have is that the fingerprint sensor does not ever recognize my finger, though I've rescanned it multiple times. If you need good battery life, this model in my experience seems to last about 2-3 hours under consistent use, but It does charge fairly quickly. The touch screen and keyboard work pretty well. The mic is good, but the camera could be better in low-light situations and resolution. The size could be an issue if you need it to be travel-friendly. In general it runs smoothly, and overall, it's a great laptop for the price. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it! I had a Lenovo laptop before, and I like the brand, so when it was time to get a new one, I chose Lenovo. Love the price and that I could do a level of "customizing" for my needs. What I don't like is the lack of a DVD drive (had to abandon my favorite game), but I guess that's progress. I also wasn't crazy about the tablet version being connected to Xbox (I had a tablet that was connected to Android, and I thought that I was killing two birds with one stone with this laptop), but I am adjusting to the new tech. This is much more lightweight, portable, easier keyboard, and a better browsing experience than my last Lenovo. I love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am extemely SATISIFIED with my Flex 5 I have had my FLEX 5 for over a month, and I am still very happy with my purchase. I use it for everything, music, videos, web browse, photoshopping, emailing, work and pleasure. I code on it, build websites, remote desktop, VMware. The only draw back is not having a full function keyboard (having to use the FN key with the F1-F12 keys and a 10 key numeric key pad is a drawback) for the type of work I do remotely.
