Notebooks flip to stand mode for touch use
Lenovo has unveiled several new computers at the IFA expo, including two budget-priced notebooks and an all-in-one that will all be sold under the Flex branding. The 14.1-inch Flex 14 and 15.6-inch Flex 15 integrate a 300-degree display hinge, enabling the touchscreen to be used in stand mode.
Both notebooks available with a choice between Core i3, i5 and i7 processors, with options for Nvidia discrete graphics and up to 8GB of RAM. The basic configurations ship with a 1366x768 touchscreen, but buyers can choose to upgrade to a 1920x1080 panel.
The Flex 20 all-in-one focuses on a slim build, housing the internals and a 19.5-inch display in a 20.5mm-thick aluminum shell. The 1600x900 IPS panel can be tilted 90 degrees, switching to a table mode that takes advantage of the company's own Aura interface.
The Flex 14 and Flex 15 will start at $629, while the Flex 20 carries a $900 price tag. All of the devices are expected to arrive later in September.
