The Lenovo Flex 5 features the Intel Core i5 processor, though there is also an option to step up to the Core i7 for more demanding tasks like video editing. By default, it comes with 8GB of RAM which should be enough for day-to-day tasks, but for heavy-duty video editing or if a lot of browser tabs are expected to be open all at the same time, there is an option to upgrade to p to 16GB of RAM. The best part is that the RAM on this laptop is DDR4, so it's pretty responsive.

The display panel is a full HD resolution 14-inch display panel and it comes with a full-sized HDMI cable for presentations or film showings if needed. The most awesome feature here is that it is convertible into tablet mode since it gives users a high degree of flexibility since they can do away with a separate tablet device.

Another 2-in-1 device on this list is the ASUS ZenBook Flip 14 UX461UN, which is another compact laptop. It weighs at just 1.4kg making it very easy to stow into a backpack.

The full HD resolution display panel measures 14 inches and has a high degree of brightness thanks to its 1000:1 dynamic contrast ratio. Once converted to tablet mode, the generous display size and the ample brightness should make it very easy to use even outdoors.

It comes with the 8th generation Core i5 i5-8250U with the option for a more a powerful Core i7-8550U-powered unit. By default, the ASUS ZenBook Flip 14 UX461UN comes with 8GB of RAM but is upgradeable to up to 16GB of RAM. The drawback here is that it uses LPDDR3 memory modules, so it's a little slower than LPDDR4, but shouldn't be noticeable to most users.

It comes with an SSD drive, with options for 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB of storage. This should be ideal for users who prefer a single drive, though users who store a lot of files will be better suited for a model with at least 512GB of SSD space.

It comes with the options for either Windows 10 Home or Windows 10 Pro, depending on the user's needs. With the option to be converted into tablet mode and its lightweight chassis, this is another suitable option for travelers who require a lightweight computer but still need a decent amount of computing power.

Dimensions0.98 x 15.32 x 10.82 inches/ 24.95 x 389 x 274.7 mm
WeightStarting at 2.61 kg

The Dell G5 15-5587 is a gaming-centered laptop that is suited for users who have powerful computing requirements, especially for those who edit photos by the bulk and for those who edit videos frequently.

This laptop is a bit bulky at 2.61kg and its 24.95 x 389 x 274.7mm dimensions may make it a challenge for frequent travelers to bring this laptop with them, especially for those who travel via air.

Despite its bulk, the Dell G5 15-5587 offers a fair bit of power thanks to the Core i5-8300H, and it comes with a higher-end variant that is powered by the Core i7-8750H. It comes with 4GB of DDR4 RAM as default and is upgradeable to up to 32GB. The best selling point is its video card options as it comes with options for the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050, with 4GB GDDR5 video memory, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti, also with 4GB GDDR5 video memory, and the higher-end NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 with NVIDIA Max-Q Design Technology with 6GB GDDR5 video memory.

Depending on the setup, this laptop can run AAA games from mid to high settings, which is impressive for a laptop at this size. This makes it possible for a decent gaming experience while on the go.

The display panel is a 15.6-inch IPS panel with anti-glare coating and comes with options for either a full HD resolution panel or an Ultra HD resolution panel, though for a laptop with a screen this size, UHD is barely noticeable, plus going for a FHD-resolution panel usually has a longer battery life, lasting up to four hours longer. It comes with options for Windows 10 OS or Ubuntu, with the latter option being cheaper since it's a free OS.

This is recommended for users who require a powerful video card while on the go, and if the bulk and weight is not an issue, this should be an excellent choice.
