These two laptops are fairly similar, but the Lenovo one is a little more mobile and has a pen to write on the screen. The SSD storage drive in the Lenovo is a faster type and does have a fingerprint sensor for easier logins. The pen that it has is nice for writing notes so excellent for students who use a program like OneNote. Only thing I’m not crazy about with the Lenovo is that the memory (RAM) cannot be upgraded like most laptops so you’re stuck if you ever get to the point of maxing that out with too many applications open at one time.
If the main goal is portability and taking notes on the screen then the Lenovo Flex otherwise the Acer has a better battery life and bigger screen (15.6″ compared to 14″).
