Featuring a unique quad-mode design, the black 14" Flex 3 Multi-Touch 2-in-1 Notebook from Lenovo is a system whose screen can rotate 360° to vary between laptop, stand, tent, and tablet mode. If you are working on tasks that require the keyboard, such as creating Word documents or editing a spreadsheet, the Flex 3 is best used in classic laptop mode to help increase productivity. However, if your primary focus is on touch applications, web chatting, or watching video content, the screen can then be flipped into tablet, tent, or stand mode to help maximize ease of use with the built-in 10-point multi-touch control. Using the Flex 3 in tablet mode requires a 360° flip and using it in stand mode requires a 300° flip.
The Flex 3 is powered by a dual-core 6th generation Skylake 2.5 GHz Intel Core i7-6500U processor which allows you to run multiple applications simultaneously. If you need more power, the system can be overclocked to 3.1 GHz using Intel's Turbo Boost 2.0 technology. The 8GB of DDR3L RAM helps to ensure smooth multitasking and also allows the computer to quickly access frequently-used files and programs.
The 14" 10-point multi-touch anti-glare IPS display features a Full HD 1920 x 1080 native resolution and a 16:9 aspect ratio. The integrated Intel HD 520 graphics delivers a sharp, clear picture and you'll also be able to output video to an external display using the system's HDMI-out port.
For long-term storage of your files, the Flex 3 has a 1TB 5400 rpm hard drive. If you want to add external storage, optical drives, memory card readers, and more, the Flex 3 offers 2 x USB 3.0 ports and 1 x USB 2.0 port. Ethernet and 802.11ac Wi-Fi are also built-in for wired and wireless networking and Bluetooth 4.0 technology will also allow you to connect additional compatible peripherals. So that content from memory cards may be accessed, a built-in SD, SDHC, SDXC, and MMC card reader lets users download content from their digital camera. Other integrated features include a 720p webcam, a microphone, and dual 1.5W stereo speakers with Dolby DS 1.0 Home Theater certification.
The Flex 3 operates using a 3-cell / 45Wh Lithium-polymer battery that lasts for up to 5 hours before recharging is required. Included with this notebook is an AC adapter and the installed operating system is Windows 10 (64-bit).
