The No.1 ranked PC manufacturer Lenovo has come up with two refreshed Laptop models at this year's edition to the IFA tech show. The Lenovo Flex 14 and Flex 15 are touted to be budget centric laptop models.
These notebook computers are not as elegant as company's Yoga line-up; however, we need to understand that Flex 14 and 15 are suited for beginners.
Interestingly, these new devices have multi-touch screens, ideal for a college going student. Moreover, we can find a similarity to older gen designs introduced at the time of Yoga laptops. The display on the Flexs can be turned around up to 300 degrees.
In terms of slimness, yes, both Flex 14 and 15 are ultra slim. If you want to use Flex 14 or Flex 15 as a tablet device, then be ready to get disappointed.
The Flex 14 has a 14-inch display offering a resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels with 10-point multi-touch point feature. It comes with Windows 8 or Windows 8 Pro. Up to Intel Corei7 is supported. The internal specifications are average, nothing fancy at all. Lenovo Flex 15 packs a 15-inch display having resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels.
Internally, you will notice that both notebook models have NVIDIA GeForce GT740M graphics with up to 8GB DDR3L memory. That's not all. The Flex 14 has 500GB HDD storage, while the 15-inch version comes with mammoth 1TB of space. Both models also have a working 720p HD video camera.
Other connectivity options include: USB 2.0, USB 3.0, HDMI -out and 2-in-one memory card reader. Battery life is expected to last up to 9 hours on a single charge.
