Lenovo Announces 2-in-1 Flex 11 Chromebook for $279

Lenovo today announced its latest edition to their Chromebook lineup called the Flex 11. This laptop is built as a two-in-one convertible so you can flip the display 360 degrees into four different viewing modes: watch, tent, laptop, and tablet. There’s also an 11.6-inch IPS 1366×768 touchscreen for viewing content.

The Flex 11 is built ruggedly. For instance, there’s a sealed touch pad and keyboard so, in the case of an accidental spill, your laptop’s mouse will keep moving. It’s also drop-resistant up to 2.4-foot drops. A textured design offers better grip when compared to other laptops, while a 3-pound weight keeps things on the lighter side.
