Lenovo announces Flex 11 Chromebook with 360-degree hinge, $279 price

Lenovo has unveiled a new Chromebook today. It’s called Flex 11 and it’s another one employing a 360-degree hinge design. This means you can use it in a few different ‘modes’ – laptop, tent, and tablet. It comes with a touchscreen, of course, though its resolution is just 1,366×768. The size is 11.6″.

The Flex 11 is powered by a 2.1 GHz quad-core ARM processor, and it has 4GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. Connectivity-wise you get Wi-Fi, a USB Type-C port, a USB 3.0 port, HDMI, a combo mic/audio jack, and an SD card reader.

A 720p HD webcam is in too, and Lenovo claims the Flex 11 gets 10-hour battery life. It weighs 1.35kg and can withstand drops up to 75cm. The keyboard is spill-resistant up to 330ml. The device will get access to the Google Play Store “soon”.

It will become available in the US before the end of April for just $279.
