Lenovo is refreshing its line of Flex laptops… making them a bit more flexible. While older models had hinges that let you tilt the screen back about 270 degrees, the new Flex 3 line of laptops have 360 degree hinges, which lets you rotate the screen until your laptop becomes a tablet.

You know… just like you can do with a Lenovo Yoga.

So what makes the Flex line of laptops different from the Yoga convertibles? They’re cheaper… and have cheaper parts.

flex 3 11

The new Lenovo Flex 3 11, for instance, has an 11.6 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel display and processor options that top out at an Intel Pentium quad-core chip. It measures about 0.85 inches thick and weighs 3 pounds. The Windows notebook supports up to 8GB of RAM and up to 64GB of solid state storage… but an entry level model will probably have much less.

The good news is that prices are expected to start at just $399 for this model when it launches in May.

Lenovo will also offer versions with 14 and 15 inch displays that will be available with more powerful 5th-gen Intel Core “Broadwell” processors. Prices for those models will start at $549, and $579, respectively.
