Equipped with a 14-inch FHD (1920×1080) display, the elegant computing machine features the latest 8th Gen Intel Core processor (up to Core i7)with up to 16GB DDR4 and Harman Speakers with Dolby Audio Premium. On the graphics side, Lenovo customers will be able to select a configuration with up to the NVIDIA GeForce MX130 (4 GB DDR5 dedicated) discreet GPU.

Besides the regular yearly hardware update, Lenovo worked on the industrial design, cleaning the edges to deliver a more comfortable grip when holding the Flex 14 in tablet mode. The most famous feature of the Yoga lineup is its 360 rotation capability, transforming from a clamshell laptop to a Windows tablet, so Lenovo revamped the hinge to make the motion smoother.

With the Flex 14, Lenovo offers good performance in a sleek and elegant package at an affordable price.

With Active pen support, the Flex 14 will be available in Onyx Black on April 18 bundled with the Lenovo Active Pen 2 at a starting price of $599.99. Please note that not all SKU will be bundled with the Active Pen 2, and resellers price may vary.
