To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I have been using Chromebook for a while, but my previous laptop was way under power to perform specific task. So I decided to get Lenovo Chromebook Flex 5 since the current work from home arrangement will last for quite a while.
So far I am happy with the purchase, with just 2 issues that is not significant, but a little annoying nonetheless..
This Chromebook is able to handle most of collaboration tool our company is using without lagging: Teams, Zoom, Google Meet, etc.. and I am able to do document editing as well without much problem. Streaming video is a breeze, and I'm able to open multiple tabs without any significant lag at all.
Android and Linux support is great and now I am able to VPN to my office (my previous Chromebook unable to do that since there is no Fortinet client for Chromebook yet). SSH/SFTP tools that I need to access my servers in office are available in abundant in both Android apps and also Linux apps, and I can just choose to use Filezilla for Debian distro instead of paying for some SFTP solution on Google Play (I am stilll not able to find a good and free SFTP solution on Google Play).
The 2 issues I mentioned that I hope can be resolved by Google as well as Lenovo as follow: - Image browsing is still painful when dealing with a folder containing hundreds of photos. Even my Android phone with lesser processing power, perform much better in this area. Image editing is not as integrated as I would like to be as well. - Keyboard has been great, except my SPACE button. You can see if from this review (I didn't do editing to show that SPACE button is a pain). You can see multiple double spaces in this review, which I think is the result of the button too sensitive, and tend to create double spaces when I intend to do just single space.
Other than that, everything else is great. I don't really miss my windows or mac, unless for development purpose, which Chromebook is not designed for anyway.
