Lenovo has announced a new convertible Chromebook, the Flex 11 which starts at $279. For $279, Lenovo is giving you a convertible Chromebook with touch screen, with the promise of Android apps “soon”. Does this sound attractive to you?
Lenovo’s Flex 11 is 2-in-1 convertible laptop with a 11.6-inch (1366 x 768) touchscreen and a 2.1GHz quad core ARM processor. There is 4 GB RAM and 32 GB storage. For ports, you get USB-C, regular USB, HDMI, and an SD card slot. The Chromebook promises 10 hours of battery life. Lenovo Flex 11 Chromebook starts at $279 (USD), available beginning in April 2017.
This is one of those “ok” Chromebooks with “ok” specs. I cannot however blame Lenovo for not launching with Play Store support though. Google seems to be facing a lot of hurdles in releasing a stable version of Play Store support for Chrome OS.
For $279, Flex 11 is not a bad deal at all. The question is, with all the other options available in the market right now, is this a very attractive device? What do you guys think?
