Since not many people relish the idea of carrying multiple gadgets with them on the go as it can get pretty heavy, device manufacturers have since come up with hybrids in which one device can do the job of multiple devices, like being able to work as a laptop and as a tablet at the same time. This is what Lenovo has done with the announcement of the Lenovo Flex 11.
The Lenovo Flex 11 is not a Windows-based laptop, but rather it is a Chromebook that runs Google’s Chrome OS platform. However as its name suggests, this is a laptop that features a 360-degree hinge that allows the display to be flipped around, thus transforming it into a tablet in the process with an 11.6-inch touchscreen display.
Under the hood, we’re looking at the use of a quad-core ARM processor clocked at 2.1GHz, 4GB of RAM, and 32GB of storage. Lenovo is also claiming how the device has been designed with Android apps in mind, so despite it being a laptop, running Android apps on it should not be an issue.
Lenovo is also boasting how the Flex 11 has a drop-resistant design, a 10 hour battery life, and a mixture of USB-C and regular USB ports. It’s definitely not the most stylish laptop or Chromebook we’ve seen, but with a price tag of $279, it’s hard to complain when it should be good enough to get the basics done.
