Lenovo announce the Flex 11 Chromebook with a 360-degree touchscreen display

Lenovo has become one of the mainstays of the Chomebook landscape with several different models currently on the market. Today they took the wraps off their latest Chromebook offering, the Lenovo Flex 11. The Flex 11 incorporates a 360-degree hinge and a touch display making the Flex 11 a great device for someone looking to utilise both Chrome OS and Android apps.

The Flex 11 isn’t targeting the high-end market, in fact with its spill resistant and drop hardened design I would suggest that the education sector may well be more the target audience. The convertible is running a 2.1GHz ARM processor specifically designed for Chromebooks running Android apps, 4GB of RAM, and comes with 32GB of internal storage.

Full specs include:

  • 11.6″ HD (1366 x 768) IPS multitouch display
  • 2.1 GHz quad-core ARM processor
  • 4GB RAM
  • 32GB internal storage
  • Wi-Fi 802.11 a/g/n/ac
  • USB C x 1
  • USB A x 1
  • HDMI
  • SD card reader
  • 720p web camera
  • 296 mm x 206 mm x 21.2 mm
  • 1.35 KG


The Flex 11 claims to get up to 10 hours battery life, and as is becoming more and more the trend will now uses USB-C for charging which offers the utility of charging other USB-C devices as well. Unfortunately, Android apps won't be enabled out of the box but Lenovo promises they will be coming at some stage this year. With a US retail price of $279 it's a safe bet that is the Flex 11 does come to Australia we won't get any change out of $400 AUD. We've asked Lenovo Australia about a potential Australian release and will let you know if we hear anything concrete.
