Archos has unveiled a new convertible notebook with an 11.6 inch display, an Intel Atom X5-Z8300 Cherry Trail processor, and Windows 10 software. The company says it’ll show off the Archos Flip at the IFA trade show in Berlin in September.

Like a lot of convertibles on the market these days, the Flip will feature a touchscreen display that you can push back 360 degrees until the notebook becomes a tablet.

You know what else uses that design? The Lenovo Yoga line of convertibles… but it’s still kind of baffling that Archos decided to include a picture of a 2012-era Lenovo Yoga 11 in the Archos Flip press release, especially since the photo shows a device running Windows RT, while the Archos Flip is said to ship with Windows 10.

Anyway, whatever the Archos Flip actually looks like, it’s expected to feature a 1366 x 768 pixel display, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, a 2MP front-facing camera, an 8,000 mAh battery, WiFi, Bluetooth, and GPS. It should be available in Europe this fall for 249€ (about $280).

Update: Archos has updated its press release with a more accurate image. The original image is shown below, while the correct image is above. You can find more details at UMPC Portal, where Chippy went hands-on with the real Archos Flip.

  1. So, with a 32bit GNU/Linux distro with GNOME or KDE, it would be OK, but with MS WOS 10 a nightmare.

    4Gb of RAM is what is needed for a minimum 64 bit modern OS OEMs seems not to know that.

  2. Every time I’ve looked at what Archos has for sale, I’ve always come away underwhelmed. At first glance, their products always look cheap and competitive, but they rarely seem to hold up under closer scrutiny.

    1. I’ve always been attracted by the inexpensive, quirky and innovative stuff that Archos used to make, until they began rebranding the same Shenzen tech items I could pick up on fleabay…but, it’s a rough business.

  3. Wait so Archos is releasing an Asus that is a clone of a Lenovo? What?

      1. Ugh… I had a feeling I was going to make that typo… but I wish I hadn’t made it so repeatedly.

        Asus also has a “Chromebook Flip,” which through me for a flip… or something.
