Lenovo has silently brought is a new update to its 2-in-1 notebook lineup, the Flex 10. To set up the stand mode, users only need to flip the display lid to about 300 degrees, which is ideal for navigating the Windows 8 interface. But when users need to rely more heavily on the keyboard when they work on a spreadsheet or draft documents; they can put their Flex 10 into the classic laptop form factor, to gain maximum productivity.
As a laptop, the Lenovo Flex 10 resembles like a slim netbook with its 10.1-inch (1366 x 768) display. There are four processor options available for users, Celeron N2805 dual-core, Celeron N2810 dual-core, Celeron N2910 quad-core and Pentium N3610 quad-core processors; all paired with 4GB of DDR3 RAM. The main storage unit is a decent 500GB HDD.
Available connectivity options include Wi-Fi b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.0. The Flex 10 measures 21mm thick and weighing in at 1.2kg. The base model has only 4 hours of battery, which is a bit too short for today’s laptop. It will retail in the UK for around £370. Overall, the Flex 10 looks like a good continuation of the Flex 15 and Flex 14 released just months ago. The Flex 14 is a good notebook, although there are a few issues that Lenovo needs to address on upcoming models, such as its limited use and weight.
