Lenovo Flex 5 13-in Touchscreen Chromebook (82B80012CF)

This model ranked #4 among Tablets priced over $ in terms of bang-for-the-buck.

This versatile Chromebook can serve both as a netbook or tablet, and it could be a great fit if you're looking to remain connected, and maybe even productive, away from your primary computer.

Other Considerations

Here are a few things about this Tablet which could come as a surprise. For each point, you will find how to fix it (if it's an issue) and how much to budget for it. Not every point below will be a concern, but hopefully, we can keep your surprises to a minimum.

Slow storage. Once started, this Tablet should perform ok, however, expect it to take some time to start up, launch programs and open large documents. If this gets really annoying, it is possible to replace the hard drive with a faster alternative if you're comfortable with opening up your laptop.$60+

Set Expiration Date. This Tablet will cease to receive updates from Google after June 1st, 2028, making it more vulnerable to new threats past this date. If you're adventurous, some users have been able to turn their Chromebooks into Linux machines before, but it does require a bit of extra know-how, and most people will likely want to look for a replacement past this point.
Every tech company declares its products obsolete and stop supporting them eventually; Google mostly differs by setting this date long in advance instead of notifying us after the fact. Still, this information should play a role in your decision, especially if you're considering buying an older model.

Assuming you are starting over fresh, you can expect to spend $20 on accessories, for a total cost of $470.
