Today, Lenovo has announced two new FLEX 2 dual-mode laptops: a 14-inch model and 15.6-inch model. These FLEX 2 dual-mode laptops have the ability to be used as a traditional laptop in “laptop mode” or to be used in “stand mode” by flipping the keyboard underneath the screen 300 degrees.
Both models will come with 10-finger multi-touch displays but select versions of these models will have a bright full HD (1920 x 1080) widescreen display. They both come with an optional backlit keyboard. On the inside, these models will be available in a couple of different options: Up to 4th generation Core i7 processor and NVIDIA GeForce graphics OR up to AMD A8 APU processor and Radeon R5 M230 graphics. They also come with three different storage options: Up to 1TB of hard drive or hybrid SSHD storage or up to 256 GB SSD storage. You get amazing audio from their stereo speaks with Dolby Advanced Audio v2 technology. And they also come with an optional dual array digital microphone that when paired with their 720p HD webcam make your video calls look awesome in Skype. Sounds pretty good to me.
The FLEX 2 14-inch and 15.6-inch will start at $799 (U.S.) and $429 (U.S.) and will be available beginning in June via Lenovo.com and retailers.
