Lenovo’s adding a new 10 inch touchscreen laptop to its Flex line of notebooks that bend over backward so the screen faces away from the keyboard for use in presentation mode. The Lenovo Flex 10 is the smallest Flex model to date, and it’s the first to feature Intel’s low-power Bay Trail processors.
The Lenovo Flex 10 is a Windows 8.1 laptop that features a 10.1 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel touchscreen display, a USB 3.0 port, a USB 2.0 port, an HDMI port, headset jack, stereo speakers, WiFi, and Bluetooth. It weighs about 2.64 pounds and measures about 0.82 inches thick.
Lenovo will offer models a choice of Bay Trail-based processors, including:
- 1.46 GHz Intel Celeron N2805 dual-core CPU with 4.3W TDP
- 2 GHz Intel Celeron N2810 dual-core with 7.5W TDP
- 1.6 GHz Intel Celeron N2910 quad-core with 7.5W TDP
- 2 GHz ntel Pentium N3510 quad-core with 7.5W TDP
The Celeron models will be available with up to 2GB of RAM while the Pentium model supports up to 4GB.
While the Flex 10 uses low-power processors, it also apparently features a low-power battery. Lenovo is only promising up to 4 hours of run time with a 3-cell battery. Still, it’s nice to see the company thinking small.
If the design looks familiar, it’s not only because Lenovo already has larger Flex notebooks with more powerful processors and Windows 8 software. Lenovo is also using a similar design for an Android laptop with an ARM-based processor called the Lenovo IdeaPad A10.
