The Lenovo Flex 11 is a perfect example of how Chromebooks are outperforming its Windows rivals. For $279, the Flex 11 comes with an impressive price to performance value that is based on the ARM platform.

The Lenovo Flex 11 is essentially a 2-in-1 convertible laptop. It packs an 11.6-inch touchscreen display with 1366 x 768 resolution. At its heart is a quad-core ARM processor clocked at 2.1GHz. It also packs 4GB of memory and 32GB of storage space, according to The Verge.

The Lenovo Flex 11 supports apps directly from the Google Play Store. A feature that puts the convertible on top of some of its contemporaries, especially the ones running on the Windows platform.

Devices that are 2-in-1 are slowly getting traction recently. These devices are an essential tool for professionals who are working on different platforms. With the native support of the Google Play Store, the Flex 11 is essentially a laptop with full Android representation.

The Lenovo Flex 11, at its price point, is a no-frills and durable piece of hardware. It has no fancy peripherals but it gets the job done. Even the laptop's design is minimalistic, something that speaks to what is under the hood.

It has an SD card slot, an HDMI port, and also supports USB Type-C. Weighing in at a little more than three pounds, the Flex 11 is drop-proof from up to 2.4 feet. Its external design is made from non-slip materials which ensure a secure grip when carrying the device. It is also water resistant up to a certain depth.

The Lenovo Flex 11 is expected to hit the market this month. With an expected price tag of $279, this 2-in-1 convertible is a practical way of getting the most out of a hardware that works well and that is durable.
