This week Lenovo has unveiled their first Chromebook release of 2017, the Lenovo Flex 11.

Flex 11 has been designed to be used by students who want a simple notebook solution at a budget price tag.

It is priced at just $279 in the US and provides a decent amount of specs for getting the job done.

That includes a quad-core ARM chipset, 4GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, and an 11.6-inch display that packs a 1,366 x 768-pixel resolution touchscreen display.

And of course, because it is a Lenovo 2-in-1, the Flex 11 can be flipped completely around to allow it to be used as a tablet or as a notebook.

This is specifically awesome given the recent Android app introduction in Chrome OS, however, Lenovo has said that Android apps won’t be enabled out of the box, but you should get them via an update soon.

To finish the spec list off, Flex 11 has two USB-C ports on either side, two full-size USB ports, an HDMI port, and an SD card slot.

All of this weighs just 3 pounds and features a body that is both drop and water resistant.

The Lenovo Flex 11 will be available in the US later this month for $279, sadly, we don’t know about other availability or pricing just yet.
