Lenovo announces the Flex 11, a 360-degree convertible Chromebook

Lenovo today announced its latest Chromebook, the Flex 11. The device isn't just a laptop though; it's actually a 2-in-1, with a display that can be folded back 360 degrees.

The ability to use it in a number of form factors opens up a world of possibilities for Chrome OS. Using the convertible as a tablet will be useful for running Android apps, which will be able to be downloaded from the Google Play Store. Of course, there's the Chrome Web Store for when you're using it as a standard notebook.

Powered by a 2.1GHz quad-core ARM processor (no specifics are given here), the Flex 11 also offers 4GB RAM, 32GB eMMC storage, and a 11.6-inch WXGA 10-point multitouch display. There's also no shortage of ports, with USB Type-C, USB 3.0 Type-A, HDMI, 3.5mm microphone/headphone jack, and an SD card reader.

Lenovo is promising up to 10 hours of battery life from the device, and it weighs in at three pounds.

The Flex 11 will start at $279, and will be available later this month. You can find out more about the it here, or you can check out Lenovo's entire range of Chromebooks here.
