Lenovo Flex 11 Chromebook review: Tough, durable and inexpensive

The Lenovo Flex 11 is one tough SOB.

The Lenovo Flex 11 Chromebook is a consumer version of Lenovo’s very solid Chromebooks For Education products. It’s built tough — rated to take a 2.4-foot drop and has a water resistant keyboard tray to keep spills out, but still comes in at a very reasonable $ 279.99.

PowerCube is designed for maximum efficiency so that plugs never block each  [Read More…]
