Lenovo has rolled out two new ultrabooks today called Flex 15 and Flex 14. At first glance, they look like larger version of Ideapad Yoga that were equipped with only 11” and 13” screens, but Flex ultrabooks are completely different computers.
While the Yoga and Lenovo S230U laptops can be folded almost 360 degrees, the Flex 15, and 14 can be folded to about 300 degrees only. Lenovo Flex 15 and 14 shall be made available in Asia by the end of September, where they were officially presented a few days ago. We are confident, they will soon be released on the American and European markets as well. The price of Lenovo Flex 14 is $800 which makes it much cheaper than the Lenovo Yoga 13 with Core i5 processor which retails for about $1100. However, it has somewhat specifications too. For example, in Flex ultrabook, a sensor that disables the keyboard when it is in sleep mode is missing, which forces the user to press a button (located on the side) to do it manually.
Under the shell, Lenovo has installed a Intel Core i5-4200U processor, which is backed by 8GB of RAM and 500 GB hard drive. The 14-inch screen has a resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels and has a dedicated Nvidia GeForce GT 740M GPU, which will easily play top of the line gaming titles. The Flex 15 is equipped with a larger display and has an extended keyboard that includes a numeric keypad. Both will be available in orange colors.
