Lenovo released its Flex 14 and Flex 15 just a few months ago, which is the company’s ultrabook that makes it possible to extend its display up to 300 degrees around its base. We generally liked the Flex 14, but we found there to be a number of issues, such as its weight and its limited use as it can only be an ultrabook or an LCD stand. If you had your eye on the Flex 14 or Flex 15, but wish it would come in a smaller package, Lenovo has answered your prayers as the company is announcing its Flex 10.
Lenovo’s Flex 10 is a 10-inch version of the Flex 14 and Flex 15 models which also has the same 1,366 x 768 resolution, although its processor received a downgrade as it will either come with a Bay Trail Pentium or Celeron processor instead of Haswell. Battery life doesn’t seem that great on the Flex 10 as the base model says it’ll provide a total of four hours of battery life, while it weighs in at a pretty hefty 2.6lbs.
One thing the Flex 10 seems to have going for itself is the fact that its base model retails for only $550, and even though it’ll have limited battery, it should still be able to allow you to run a number of productivity software such as Microsoft Office.
