Flex 2 can be posed using notebook keyboard as stand
Lenovo has extended its Flex notebook family, by introducing two new updated versions. The Flex 2 are dual-mode notebooks that can flip the 14-inch and 15.6-inch touch-enabled displays around 300 degrees, allowing it to work similar to a tablet being used in a stand with the keyboard-equipped section face down on the surface behind the screen.
Inside is a choice of Haswell-based Intel Core i7 processors with Nvidia GeForce graphics, with AMD versions offering Radeon R5 M230 discrete graphics. Storage consists of a choice of a hard drive with a capacity of up to 1TB, a similar hybrid SSHD drive, or up to 256GB on SSSD, with the device also providing a 720p webcam, an optional backlit keyboard, Dolby Advanced Audio v2 sound processing, and stereo speakers. The touchscreen displays offer resolutions of up to 1080p, depending on the model, with 10-finger multitouch supported for gestures in Windows 8.1.
